One of my favorite mags. to read is Coastal Living. It looks absolutely beautiful. I am sure it does coast a pretty penny but you only live once.

Does anyone on CD live on a coast (Eastern,southern).


Where and is it expensive?

I love that magazine too!


Spent summers on the Maine coast growing up. Yes, it's expensive but worth every penney if you can manage it.

I may not get to the coast but I may be able to afford a place in Wisc. or Mich.. They have really beautiful cabons and lakeview properties that are affordable.

If I were Earth Czar, I'd make a 150 mile buffer zone that ran along all of the U.S. coastline (including the whole state of Florida) And the law would be: "If you live within that 150 mile zone, you're on your own if a hurricane comes". I am SO tired of opening my wallet every time a hurricane comes because people want to live in housing that won't withstand flooding and high winds near the coast. Why in the WORLD would you live in a mobile home near a coast??? Even most of the houses being built close to the ocean are of substandard construction when it comes to hurricanes. My mother-in-law lives in a village on the Moselle River in Germamy. It floods sometimes twice a year. Everyone who lives there knows taht and accepts it. When it floods, they just go ahead and rebuild on their own. No handouts from people who live elsewhere! Just my two cents worth...

I'm currently living in WI. I would strongly suggest Lake Superior over Lake Michigan if you are interested in a "coastal" feel.

Thanks for the 2cents.......

To answer your question, it's a personal choice, that's all. No harm in that is it?

I live on a coast, but I see it hasn't been mentioned - the West coast. It's California, so it's pretty... and pretty expensive.
