If jobs and money were of no concern where would you move to within the Continental U.S.? No Italy or Hawaii, I'm talking the Lower 48 only.

Probably Marco Island, Florida to enjoy the beautiful beaches there year round or Charleston, SC for the charm and awesome food!

If jobs and money were of no concern, I'd snap up one of those mansions around Lake Tahoe. But I'd look for one in a neighborhood where everyone's moved to Nova, 'cause I like peace and quiet. And since I'd have tons of money I'd fly to Nova 10-12 times a year, since I'd probably get homesick.

Haven't moved to Nova yet - but I'd move to the Keys - not Key west, but one of the smaller Keys along the way!

if money were no object? I actually would say Boston. We visited there a couple years back and just fell in love with it. Of course, there is the winter season.

I rule out CA just because I have an intense and irrational fear of Earthquakes. I also rule out HI because my husband spent 3 years there and while it is beautiful, it is SOO far from everything else.

We actually are relocating in the not too distant future. We're going to Austin, TX. It would have been Raleigh, NC except my parents decided to relocate when we do and we wanted to get closer to both of our families. My husband's family will never leave TX, so we have to go to them. They are in the San Antonio area, but I really dislike it there and Austin is only an hour away.

Seattle! I'd love to be near the Cascades and Puget Sound, drinking microbrews from Portland, not worrying about Snowpocalypses or 55 days over 90 degrees. I'm probably the only person who thinks that the Pacific NW has the best climate in the continental US, though.

I've never been, but I honestly think Portland sounds like a great place to live. If I could relocate everyone to a neutral location, that would be my pick.

Pretty much anywhere in the West Coast. Depending on the day I'd love to live in SoCal, around Arcata, in Portland or on Bainbridge Island (Seattle). Today I'm leaning towards SoCal.

Seattle or Oregon in the Spring and Fall, Summer in Montana, and Winter in Destin Florida. Spent about 10 days in Montana this summer and a few in Portland...fell in love. BUT headed to Charleston next week for vacation, so will report back. Nevermind, who am I kidding...I'm done with humidity.

I've lived all over the US (deep south, midwest and desert) and 3 countries in Europe so I say the above with confidence.
