I would rather live in a metro area of 250,000 or less and the cities above are too big for me to live in. Ideal city would be 50,000 to 150,000 in city limits or near a city of that size. Of the above mentioned cities I would pick Charleston, SC (for the architecture and beaches-I love the palmetto trees); Charlotte, NC; Dallas, TX; or Austin, TX. I would like to visit Florida again someday, but have no desire to live there. The south is nice for not having the subzero weather and snow in the winter, but can be very hot and sticky in the summer.

I'd give Charlotte a try. I visited in 2005 and it seemed very clean and advanced!

Advanced...lol how long have you lived in PA?

I was through there a few times in the 90s and I could see the traffic building already as it was getting ready to take off as a popular southern city

Houston: Yep
Orlando: *vomits*
Dallas: Yes

I'd live in Atlanta, Charleston, Dallas, Houston, and Austin. They all seem to have anything you want in the North. Or do they???

I agree with this pretty much (I'd include San Antonio also), although I'm a southerner that is now living in the north and actually enjoying it...

To the 18 who'd rather die than live in one of the cities above, you all have problems that this site can't fix.

I am staying in the North. I like my colder weather and snow.

I think it's hilarious how "I'd rather die" is leading by quite a bit. I picked that one. I really wouldn't ever move to the south. If the north wasn't in existance anymore and I HAD to pick one of those, I would pick Miami since it's a pretty liberal area with lots of culture. It's the closest to NYC than the rest of the choices (not in distance, as far as culture/things to do, etc). Also close to my parents in Naples It being the warmest of them all has nothing to do with my choice. A negative factor would be lack of 4 seasons.
