Can anyone attest to living in an area that has a laid back, relaxed vibe to it? The people, culture, pace of life, ability to enjoy life with separation of work and play. It can be a city, town, suburban area, northeast, southeast, midwest, west, etc. ( Now, I don't mean laid back to the point of people being spaced out)

San Diego is VERY laid back IMO, especially for a large city.

Honolulu and the entire state of Hawaii is also VERY laid back, probably more so than most places.

I think the suburbs of LA and the SF Bay Area are laid back but not the cities themselves as much.

Houston maybe. Oklahoma City is another good one.

Anywhere south of the Mason-Dixon but north of Florida.

Key West, Florida seems like it would be a laid back area.

Seattle for a big city felt laid back when I visited. I was also, as someone else mentioned in OKC's downtown/river area, about two years ago and it seemed laid back as well. Houston's traffic was a too hectic to me to be laid back :-) But I still liked our visit.

Florida excluding: Miami, Orlando, parts of Tampa.

The rest of Florida is pretty laid back, especially the panhandle and interior peninsula.

Austin has a very laidback vibe - I love the fact that if its a beautiful weekday during the summer, rush hour starts at noon bc everyone's heading to the lake.
