San Diego is tops on this list. Perfect weather, beaches. I agree Charlotte is tops in terms of jobs/cost of living- but San Diego beats it in so many other ways it isn't even close. Got to say El Paso was one of the worst towns I've ever visited, but to each his own.

I want to revisit San Diego. I could care less about Los Angeles, what a hellhole.

I'm from Michigan. Living in Illinois for me is the sunbelt. The economy here is alive, whereas the economy in Michigan is dying. Works for me.
Mid-Michigan has a dead economy and lots of dreary cloudy days. It's actually nicer in Illinois and Wisconsin.

My recent visit to Charlotte verified the claims that it is a viable area for human habitation. Note that my bags aren't packed yet. /dryhumor

lol^ I don't know why everyone always thinks of Denver as a cold, wet place. Colorado is one of the dryest states in the U.S!! This year we are getting an uncommon amount of rain, though, which is nice. But really, we're lucky if we get 3 feet of snow in one winter! I would definately consider Denver as part of the Sunbelt.

I like the DC area ok. Washington, D.C. was very much a southern city at one time. I voted for DC because VA is near it. I wouldn't vote for it otherwise.

Can't stand Atlanta. Although the girls there are very nice to look at.

I think being sandwiched between two massive lakes is what makes MI so cloudy, er at least thats what Im led to believe.

My fave sunbelt city is Ft. Lauderdale. LOVE that place!

I posted other, with Houston being it. The city has everything world class from culture to beautiful green parks and great climate. The only other city on the list with any appeal to me was Los Angeles which also has great culture even though I can't stand the hollywood scene. All the other cities listed on this poll are pretty much cultural voids.
