As far as wide open spaces, I prefer the other side of the country. Montana is big sky country and incredibly scenic.
Opinions vary, I guess, but I don't know where you went in New Mexico. I wanted to move here the first time I saw it...age 10. I took me decades to finally get here to stay. It is a gorgeous state with a huge number of regional variations: high plains, canyons, white sands desert, pine covered mountains, Rio Grande Valley to list a few. With two million people it isn't paved over or choking on fumes.This is a high desert with a nearly perfect four season climate. You do have to like the desert and appreciate the geology and the history as well as the stunning scenery and the cultural diversity.

Atlanta is not a state.

Of these choices, NY. For real? Pennsylvania.

For me: California (used to live there), Nevada, and possibly Montana.

I currently live in Texas. While I'm warmed slightly to it, it isn't for me, it seems.

Between these states (and city) I would go with either New York (my current state), Ohio or Montana.


Was born and raised in the south and have no desire to move back south so that eliminates SC,MS,FL,TX (and Atlanta lol). No desire to go near CA. NV would be cool to visit but don't think I'd want to live there.


Ohio I like a lot of the areas around Cleveland and Columbus. MT would be nice to just get away from people. But when it comes down to it, despite the flaws I love NY state. The cities, small towns, the people, the natural beauty. Really nice places to live, especially with a family.

Arizona is a horrible place, nobody in their right mind should ever move here. Not only are there scorpions everywhere, but the whole state is infested with rattlesnakes, rabid bats and mountain lions. Plus AZ is full and the only work is Walmart greeter. Thanks for leaving us off the list.
