Are you talking about weather and the US? I like 4 distinct seasons and prefer temps in the low to mid 50s. My ideal state would have a longer Fall season and a shorter summer. I would definitely rule out any state that borders on the Gulf of Mexico, just on the heat factor alone. I wouldn't go any further South than where I am now but it's strictly due to temperature. I'd be open to considering places in the northern most states.

Other than hot temps over too many months, and that I wouldn't live in anyplace with a population over 35,000, there are too many specific places where I wouldn't live, to blanketly name a state or location, north or south, where I would be willing to live. Since I'm not tied to a job, I can live anywhere and can be picky about things like taxes, ideology, population density, affordability, culture, etc.

From what I hear Fort Myers is really a beautiful area. As for me, (North) probably Buffalo and no further South than where I currently live (Fort Worth)

Look here It is my opinion and if I feel that way, That is how I feel. Not everyone likes the South. It is about what you like. You moved from NY to Houston Good for you. I lived in a few places in the South and it is not for me. Get over it.

Look here, it is Mario's opinion. If that is the way he feels, that's the way he feels. Some people don't like places outside of NY. It is about what he likes. Maybe he lived in places outside of NY and didn't like them. Get over it

First of all, mind your business. I was speaking on the fact that he only know about what is going on in NY but IMO I do not think he has been out or ever lived outside of NY.

You have been dismissed.

Like where?

If the whole North America.

Furthest North: Montreal
Furthest South: San Diego (not the SE states though)

If only the states:

Furthest North: Boston
Furthest South: San Diego on the west coast, DC on the east coast, Denver in the middle.

Why dont you mind your buisness?

It's my opinion. Just like many of the southerners here are showing their southern pride by stating they wouldn't go north past the "mason-dixon" line, I am showing pride in my hometown by stating I wouldn't leave NYC.

There's nothing wrong with any of that.

Everybody is entitled to their opinion. So relax.
