The best place to live, is the place that is best for the individual. Each of us has a mental list of what we we like, and a list of what we dislike. No place is perfect...the key is to find the place that is perfect for you.

I picked Denver. I would have picked San Diego for climate and ocean, but to expensive. I have been to both places. All the other places I have been thru or close to. They are way to hot and or humid. And the ones not mention are either to hot/humid or to cold/rainy. And it seems like any place that seems to be reasonabily price has a drug or gang problem and no jobs. What is going on in this country

I picked Denver.

I love the great business climate, the mountains, the weather, the airport, the Broncos, the family values, the good people, and conservative politics and John Elway.

I like most of the towns you picked. Don't think I would live in DC, though.

I didn't pick any, I want to live where I don't have to listen to what is conservative and what is liberal, and what is evangelical and what is New Age, Im tired of it, and I am tired of those that live that way. There is nothing wrong with just living in a place where the real meaning of diversity is. Everybody from all walks of life just living there life on their own terms. Yes I know it does not exist in this country except maybe for NYC, and SFO to some extent more than other places, but those were not on the list.

No, I'd still pick Charlotte. San Diego is a great place, but I really love living in an area with four defined seasons.

Default San Diego

I voted for San Diego. Perfect weather and access to Pacific Ocean. Ton of things to do within the area and within 2 hours away. Lived in Washington DC for 13 years and hated it. Besides the sticky hot summers, the people are all into politics (both sides of any issue) and what you do determines who you are and who you'll befriend.

Some stuff like Georgetown, Alexandria and the Smithsonian are great, but I would only want to visit there.

If your're in the legal field, then I'd choose Washington, DC. Lots of long nights working as a lawyer, so I would try to find an apartment or a condo in DC proper, NW quadrant of DC.

I lived in DC in the 80s. First job out of College I worked for the State Department. They weren't paying me well, so I switched careers and became a legal secretary. I doubled my salary in two years.

The public transportation system in DC is great. I had a couple of job that I could walk to work. As in any city, there is a problem with high crime. You just don't go into those neighborhoods, NE, SE
