No, but it's in my top 5 places.

I can't give a simple yes or no either - we couldn't afford to move into this area now but now it's a matter of finish paying off the house. If there were variables such as weather, cost of living, quality of living, etc. - I'd give it a maybe. There are many pluses as well as minuses - all in all though, I don't hate living here and think it has many good qualities.

I agree with this statement. I would say no (barely) because I would love to live in SoCal or Florida strictly because of weather and beaches. If I left I would still visit often

I've always maintained the one thing we need here is a beach... if some entrepreneur wants an idea for a way to make a lot of money, take one of those old big box stores and build an artificial beach. I'd hang out there at least once a week all winter long... and there'd be a crowd of other people there, too.

Having lived in the deep south, west, mid west and Europe...and twice here I say yes! The good outweighs the bad (for me) and I know the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
