Id love to go to Iceland. My grandparents have gone twice, and Ive seen their photos. Its beautiful! Hardly any people, virtually non-existant crime, clean air, gorgeous landscape, etc, etc. Give me that anyday over 95% of the cities in the USA!

I'm quite appalled that Castro is on there and that someone voted for it.

The news for a big city in the US
-5 people were guned down today due to a bank robbery.

The news for Iceland
-A cat got saved in a tree today after being stuck up there for 2 HOURS!

But i never been to the majority of the towns listed to tell whether i'd live in a place or not. But if Jacksonville, FL was on the list, i would pack my bags and leave to Iceland.
But i can probably deal with a lot of those towns and learn to love what they have.

Have you been to Iceland? It's actually a very awesome place. I visited last year and didn't want to leave. Everyone was so damn happy and so nice. It's constantly ranked as one of if not the most advanced society on earth.

I think a lot of people assume it's really cold or all frozen. The Vikings actually named Iceland and Greenland on purprose to try and fool invaders into going to Greenland (since they're actually opposites of their names).

Iceland is beautiful, I would love to live there if I had to leave the US. I would rather live there than some places in the US.

I've been to Iceland and it's beautiful and peaceful--although the economy is pretty shaky these days.

But I went with Detroit, Flint and Gary and would have picked Omaha if it were an option.

What's so bad about Iceland? I can't think of several U.S. cities I would pass up in order to live in Iceland.

Iceland's near the top of my list of places to visit - it looks beautiful and has a very high QOL. So, if I ever get a chance, I may just choose to be "banished to Iceland". LOL
