Another vote for Missouri. Outside the two high-crime cities, Missouri is a very laid back small-town state, with wonderful unstressed people. Very outdoorsy, and very safe for the kids to go outdoors. And very low cost of living.

Wink Which State

This is a great subject. My wife and I have always lived in So. Cal. We also have always moved to more rural, safer areas for our kids. We're now in our 50's and want to go to a bit safer, slower(not dead), colder and more beautiful state with it's traditional seasonal changes. As long as we can get Inet and TV with satellite and have nearby places to hike and fish we're fine. We still work but, getting close to that age. We've talked about Maine, Idaho, Washington, Wyoming and Montana pretty much in that order. We're not what you might call very religious but, also not the party type. We love being home bodies with a few dogs, a fair spread of land, some decent snow and occasional shopping. Actually I'm asking if anyone knows of a site that has a wizard that you enter all of your priorities and it shows suggestions to look into. Any suggestions??

You might look at Michigan. Don't dismiss it offhand because of the image Detroit conjures up. MOST of the state is not like Detroit and has all 4 seasons, good access to internet/TV/cable/etc... plus it has some of the best fishing around. Everything from going 20, 30, or 60+ miles out into one of the Great Lakes for Salmon and big lake trout (World record Brown trout was caught here last summer). Small streams to wade and relax while flipping a fly, and everything in between these two extremes. Tons of hiking areas, and a large number of Federal/state/local lands to get out and enjoy.

Plus if you are retired, Michigan doesn't have State Income tax on retirement income. Lower cost of living that a lot of places means you can get a lot more house for less $.

And in those high crime cities, it is mostly confined to only a fraction of said cities where other areas are as safe as the suburbs.

I would say New York's Hudson River valley is the absolute best place to grow up. Good schools, Diverse cultures. close proximity to one of the world'd greatest cities. Choice of living in a rural, suburban or urban environment, or at least having friends that live in one of those environments.
