It seems that a lot of us love to complain about where we live and wish we lived somewhere else - hence the reason we come here. So here's the poll: Do you like where you currently live?

I like where I live - though there is not really an appropriate choice for that. I like it; but I don't think it "the closest thing to heaven on earth."

No. I'd rather be some place else but now that is not even a choice thanks to the economy.

Not even close. And economy or no, I'll be out of here in 2010.

The town i'm in now of Lodi, NJ is ok... I have no desire to own a house and raise my family here. It's a huge flood zone, and its high school has a bad reputation for cocky people. I don't want my daughter to be influenced with any of that.

but i bought a house in Teaneck, NJ which i plan on moving into in May which is racially diverse with low crime and it's also economically diverse. The school is good and my daughter would fit in since she's racially mixed. The town seems like a great place to grow old.

That's how I feel, too. Love my neighborhood, but it's not perfect.

Love LA, but it's far from perfect as plenty of other forumers amply point out.

Agreed. If there was an option labeled "I like where I live. It's got everything I need, plus good people and it offers plenty of recreational activities. I'd leave if my job took me elsewhere and gave me a raise, but I'd have to seriously think about it first.", then that would be my choice.

Okay, so maybe I should have put more options on the poll. But overall, I was curious how many people actually LIKED living where they lived.

This is my 6th state, 3rd in last 2 years. DC 'burbs are ok (I'm a stay at home mom). but I wish there were more things to do, walk to, etc, especially with my toddler. I'm not interested in hitting a Smithsonian every weekend. And there's no beach nearby.
