Due to my current position in my career, I'll be here for 3-5 more years, but I'm definitely not staying. I'd like to find at least half an acre in a suburb of a great sports town. Here's a list of the top contenders that I'm researching and visiting, and will eventually end up at one of them:
- St. Louis, MO (have family there, considering St. Clair county in Illinois or Fenton/other STL suburb)
- Atlanta, GA (Roswell, GA)
- Denver, CO (Castle Rock, CO)
- Washington, DC (Alexandria, VA / Potomac, MD)
- Dallas / FtW, TX (Flower Mound, TX)
- Seattle, WA

Relocated from Palm City, FL to Raleigh, NC the end of March 2007. I miss some aspects of FL but overall I'm quiet happy with the move. Raleigh is a nice city and close to many things. The beach is only 2 1/2 hrs away although I will say they aren't as nice as FL beaches overall. Mountains in Western North Carolina are just incredibly gorgeous. You're only a 4 and half hour drive to Washington, DC, a days drive to NYC and many other locations to visit. You get all 4 seasons here which is nice. Fall is beautiful with the leaves changing. It has been a bit nippy a few days but it's kinda of nice to have to bring out my sweaters and jackets I haven't worn for 12 years in years.

We chose to leave because I am a mortgage banker and my income was falling precipitously with the crashing FL real estate market. We had a bunch of equitiy and wanted to "cash out" while we could. We were lucky....

No regrets, yet....

A second home owner from Florida who lives in Mineral Bluff..trust me theres no truth behind this post. Floridians arent very well liked there at all. Its almost like saying the F-Word. Theres just to many Floridians coming up here and driving up all the prices and always talking about Florida. Some of them actually think their real fans of Floridas teams still.

The first time I moved back to NY was in the middle of DECEMBER, to snow on the ground. It was so wonderful.

My daughters Christmas present to me was a plane ticket to NY, in JANUARY.

Good luck with your move back. Wish I could say the same.

I plan to hopefully move back to New Jersey in the Spring. I don't think it is wise in this economy to move anywhere without a job lined up, though.

None of those towns are really considered " great sports towns. "

Tampa, FL to Nashville, TN

Moved to Nashville in 2000 and never looked back. For the first time I found a sense of community here that was really lacking in Tampa. I discovered it was GREAT to have seasons, occasional snow, friendly people, ect, ect...

Most common misconception about Nashville: There is more to this city and area than Country music, It's MUSIC CITY, not just country music city. We have all kinds of artists and genres here.
