San Jose & Palo Alto would likely work & be a little tolerant of Libertarians.

sort of?!?!?!
Where have you been??? It's like all liberal, even the "conservatives" are liberal...
Anyways...Libertarians tend to be more neo-con...right?
well whatever, I thought of Seattle, Portland, San Antonio, Fort Worth, Phoenix, St.Louis, and Austin... The Bay Area and the Northeast are not socially liberal...they are just flat out liberal.

There are still a lot of working class, ethnic (lack of a better term), and socially conservative people in the Northeast. They tend to vote Democrat.

I would say Denver, Seattle, or Austin. I can completely agree with you as a fellow libertarian. Also, have you heard about the free state project in New Hampshire?

The 10 month-old thread doesn't need further definitions or debate about the difference between liberal and libertarian. Those are off-topic in the General US forum. They can be discussed in the Politics and Other Controversies forum if you feel the need.

Sounds like many of those who have posted previously should have reviewed those definitions and differences before they posted!

Moderator cut: see comment

In any event, I would add my vote for the mountain west, as well as some of the larger cities in Missouri and the great plains states (to the extent that there are any).

Las Vegas. Seriously.

The Las Vegas metro area is very socially liberal, but very libertarian. People really couldn't care less what you do in your personal life, and they are for minimal government intervention (ex. 24 hour alcohol sales, lack of open container laws, legalized prostitution outside of Clark County).

There is an organization that is trying to get libertarians to move to New Hampshire. While I love this idea, I wish they would do this in a country, not a state. States still have to pay the huge amount of federal taxes.
