Do any of you truly love living here? Have you always lived here? Where would you want to live if it's not here?

I've lived here all my life and sometimes I think it'd be neat to live in a different state. But in my research I think this is the only area that doesn't get snow in the winter and we have the dry heat. Am I wrong? Is there other states with cities that have weather like us besides the desert areas?

I have been as far out as Georgia and it is so beautiful out there but its so humid. The same with Louisiana, I love it but the humidity kills me. I guess the south is only good for visiting.

I love living here. Weather is a big part of that. Though I am ready for it to stop raining this year.

I like it a lot. I haven't always lived here, but have for most of my life. I have considered living other places but decided against it. I suppose I could be happy just about any place, but like it here and don't see much reason to leave.

I have lived here all my life and I guess I am just bored right now. Maybe the weather is affecting me because I am so sick of the rain! I know the rain is good for us to have but enough already! My whole family lives here and we are very close and I would never want to live too far away from them but I have been looking at other states. I just don't think I would truly be happy with the weather everywhere else.

I've been in the Sacramento area nearly 5 years now and find it an OK place to live. I wouldn't say I love the place, but I find it to be a comfortable place to reside.

Regarding weather, which seems to come up a lot, that is a matter of taste. Frankly, I prefer the four seasons, so for me the weather is a bit of a minus. I find the areas of Land Park, Midtown and East Sacramento to be nice places to visit/dine/walk, and also like some of the areas downtown too. Unlike some folks, I actually enjoy visiting the Old Town Sacramento area, we especially enjoyed taking our visiting relatives to the Jazz Festival this past weekend.

So overall, I think it is a decent place to live. I've liked other places a bit more than Sacramento, but it has some unique pluses too.

What are some of the other places you like? I wish we had all 4 seasons too just minus the snow! But I know other states get to enjoy each season and here it seems like we miss Spring and Fall. I would like more of each and not so much of the heat.

Well, I've lived in Cleveland, Columbus, Philly, Kansas City and Washington DC. In addition, I've spent significant time (meaning at least a few months) in Chicago, Providence, Boston, New York, Indianapolis, Daytona Beach and West Palm Beach (where most of my family currently resides).

Of all these cities, my favorite is Cleveland (the metro area, not just the city itself). It has a very large lakefront area, and beautiful suburban areas. It is very green, lots of huge trees and generally pretty well maintained suburban areas. The Emerald Necklace Trail, a large metro park trail ringing the city, is quite impressive. The West Side Market is a fun place to go too.

You probably wouldn't like Cleveland, it gets cold in the winter and they get quite a bit of snow. But, we really liked the area. It surprised us, when I was transferred there I expected to not be too happy about living there, but we ended up really enjoying our stay there.

Bulldogdad, such is life in the Dept of Defense. If you stay with them for a career, and advance up the ladder, you generally get moved around quite a bit.

At first I found it a bit annoying, but learned to like living in different areas. It gave me a chance to see what I liked and didn't like about different environments. It also gave me a chance to see what worked and failed as each area developed, so I got a bit of a "lessons learned" perspective from being in so many different places.

I was just feeling a little playful and was reading your post while I had the man in black playing in the back ground. One of those serendipity kind of things.
