I am ready for a change. My DH and I want to settle down and start a family, but neither one of us wants to raise children here in the Bronx. We want a house with a yard, a washer and dryer, and a car with a place to park it.

So we are looking to relocate out of NYC, not because we hate it or because it's a horrible place to live. We are looking to relocate because it does not really offer what we are looking for at this time.

(And yes, you CAN have what we are looking for in the NYC area - just not at the price point we can afford!)

I agree with PPs that say that this forum is not a really balanced view of people's opinions of their places of residence. The reason many people come to these boards is to research relocating, so the people unhappy with their location is most likely over-represented. The people who are happy with their location are probably out and about enjoying life in their area, not browsing on here looking for a new place!

I've had thoughts about relocating to the greater Atlanta area...I had never really thought about Decatur but it seems like a pretty nice place for a single mom of 2. I'll be doing a bit more research in the near future. I plan to be out of Indianapolis by the summer of 2010.

I live outside of Tucson, Arizona and it's great. In the city, things have changed and it is no longer a sleepy little cowtown. There are still good people but you have to look harder to find them.
