Alaska in the summer time, and Santa Barbara in the winter time...

Honestly...I really don't know. San Diego is nice so is San Fran (albeit a bit liberal for my tastes)...

Sedona, AZ would be a nice place to retreat to. It has beautiful scenery and great people! I'd probably buy a mountain-side home here if I had the $$.
Rancho Santa Fe is another great area (a distant cousin of mine lives there, unfortunately he's loaded....I'm not).

But if money was no object, I'd buy a couple thousand scenic acres of land in Montana and build a large log-style home. I could retreat there in the summertime when the heat here is unbearable. Scottsdale in the winter, Montana in the summer, Sedona for an all around retreat; it sounds good to me...now who's going to approve my loan?

I second the idea of Sedona Arizona. Truly a magical place of beauty.

I'd have an apartment in a NICE part of Manhattan or Boston (for culture & things to do) and a few acre holding somewhere out west that is unspoiled by industry to relax at and enjoy nature.

Thumbs up Santa Cruz, CA

Much of the central CA coast is beautiful to me. But if I could snag a home above West Cliff Drive overlooking the Ocean... that would be amazing! I think it would be a true measure of just how progressive I really am as there wouldn't be many places more liberal than this. It also doesn't hurt that San Francisco - one of my favorite cities - and Los Angeles - which I've yet to visit - are fairly easy to get to when I want my uber-urban fix! Otherwise I could just be in relative chillout mode in my Santa Cruz abode.
