I currently live in a very rual area in Western NY. I have come to the realization that I cannot be happy here. I want to live in a place that has culture, diversity, a place that maybe has a grunge/punk band scene, somewhere that I can find vegetarian health food stuff. I would also like to be able to be close to nature, a city were I can easily go camping on the weekends. I would like to buy a house with an acre of land or two without paying more than $250,000. Am I dreaming or does this place exist? PLEASE suggest anything that would fit most/some/all of this criteria.

If you are already in WNY just move to Buffalo. It has culture, punk scene, veggie friendly stores/restaurants and cheap housing.

Not really. There are plenty of nice areas in Buffalo.... or even Rochester. Each place fits most of the criteria you are looking for. You aren't going to find too many places with your criteria that fit your budget. There are plenty of places in the northwest that offer what you want, but would be too pricey for an acre of land.

I have debated Rochester, but Buffalo is out. I would love to live in the north west or even down south if I can find what I would like. I would love to own a home even with just a half acre of land or a decent sized private lawn.

Have you checked out Eugene, OR? Santa Cruz, CA may also be a good option, but land in CA is ridiculously expensive. Not too sure about OR.

Aren't 100% of all major cities liberal? and in every big city you can find a bunch of vegetarian restaurants and stores.

Here's my recommendation Granola, Washington.

Granola, Washington isn't showing up anywhere.

Yeah it's a tiny cool small town, very neat and creative people. It might be the most progressive small town in western Washington.

Even a google search provides nothing relevant. Is it commonly known by another name, can you give me any links?
