Kentucky "the Bluegrass State"
- very low cost of living, incl lowest electric rates in the US
- lots of natural attractions (world's longest cave, most natural arches, most miles of streams and rivers in lower 48, lots of variety in landscape
- It's 3 largest urban areas have overall thriving economies and lots of new construction downtown (all 3 currently building a new tallest building)
- vibrant folk culture/ music

I take advantage of the low cost of living, excellent schools, and beautiful neighborhoods here in Northeast Indiana. Granted, it's very suburban but it is upscale, leaving out the undesireables.

I live in Stamford, CT. It's a phenomenal quality of life with cultural, cosmopolitan, outdoors, and overall educational opportunities within 5 to 45 minutes. The beach and mountains are minutes away. New York City is a 44 minute train ride, or about an hour by car. There are 4 true seasons--not too hot and not too cold. Very low crime, super friendly people, and a progressive city.

The best thing about Illinois is a) Chicago and b) its proximity to Wisconsin and the rest of the Northwoods. I know, downstaters hate people like me who don't care about their part of the state, but that's just too bad. That's how I feel.

I live in Alaska and I think the high cost of living is worth it because there aren't too many people, it's not too hot, it's not too humid, there aren't too many people, we can hunt/fish for a lot of our own food, we believe in the 2nd Amendment, there aren't too many people...

I could make a lot more money elsewhere, with a much lower cost of living, but I like it here. However, I'd say it's not for everyone since about 90% of the people who want to live the "Alaska wilderness dream" leave in less than a year. The only thing I don't like about living here is all these outsiders move in and try to bring "home" with them and in the process try to destroy my home.

CA. It has a lot of good and bad things about it but I like the weather, scenery, things to do, all the different cities, opportunities, family, friends, a great weed.
