      The more I see, the harder it is to answer that question.

      The Amish farms of Pa are incredible.......
      The warmth of the SW desert is easy on the bones and conducive to outdoor interests.
      The rock and canyon formations of Idaho and Utah are a sight to behold.
      Never has the urge to stop and get out the vehicle been as strong and when I was driving through Oregon.
      The south is my home, and always will be.

      If all I had to do was go and not come back ever again, I would choose Montanta or Wyoming.  They have every attribute that I would look for and the wide open spaces that my restless soul needs.

      Somewhere warm all year round, except for a few weeks of snow in the winter and a little hotter in the summer. If anyone knows a place like that, let me know, I'm quite willing to move!
      Where I am now it's pouring so bad there's flood danger and it's nearly freezing, I want out...

      I would also like to move somewhere closer to the coast where it is warmer and there are at least 300+ sunny days in a year. I am from Russia originally, and my family has been living in London for 4 years by now. I find this change very good apart from the climate. One of the things you should take into account is the language. I think one of places to move might be the South of France.

      In a log cabin in the Ozarks of Missouri.  And if I had the money, a highrise in Hong Kong.

    I think it would be interesting to live a couple of years in Bhutan.  Just read a book about living in Bhutan, "Beyond the Sky and the Earth".

    For me the Northwest is the place to be,Big Sky Country! Never been? Go anywhere in this area and you will quickly learn why it's called that as the sky literally looks like you can just reach out and touch it sometimes.The stars are all visible at night,except for when it's storming.It's majestic in it's beautiful flowing green fields,white water laden rivers and streams and mountains so big you can see them clearly 50 miles away.Stop at a restaurant and they treat you as if you've lived among them forever.I remember one time I camped out at a small truck stop in nowheresville Montana one weekend just taking a peaceful break and doing a little gambling in their small bar/casino. I needed to hit an ATM machine and the one in the truck stop was out of commission.I asked the woman working the bar,who I had exchanged pleasantries with for a bit,if she knew where I could find an ATM. She told me and although it was only a 4 block walk offered me(a complete and total stranger )the keys to her car so I wouldn't have to walk. Now I'll admit I have the look of being trustful,but in most places (99.9% of places)you would never see that happen.

    Think about where you love to go on vacation. If there is one place that you keep returning to, consider living there.

      I have lived in three diffrent cities in the last four years so I agree--theres no place like home. The place is not so important--having those whom I love close by is what makes the place special.

    Mecca is the best place to live in. It is the place of peace and love. There you can find people who are close to the Almighty Allah. The best place to spend the rest of your life.

    Central Southern England, Hampshire to be exact, the winters tend to be not too bad, the springtime vibrant, and the summers warm, Autumn time brings the various woodland, field and hedgerow freebies, wild apples for eating or wine making,sloe berries, blackberries, wild gooseberries, wild garlic, and herbs, abundant mushrooms, and various other fruits.
    The countryside in places is gentle and rolling, in others high with fine views, with easily accessable abundant deciduous woods, broad fertile fields and and clear fresh watercourses, the whole teeming with wildlife, and add on its historic towns, waterfronts, and its easily reachable southern coastline.
    This is home.

    My suggestion to your questions is this. The truth is I have travelled more than 3.5 million miles in America and have been in all states mulitiple times except Alaska. Decide one or two things, then make your decision.
    1. Affordability? What is your financial status? ie: La Jolla, California is spectacular, but you pretty much have to be a multimillionaire to purchase a home there.
    2. Seasons: Personally I love snow and everything winter. How about you? For those that do not like snow, Florida is very affordable if you go to the Panhandle area and the weather is nice year round. Palm trees sway in the gentle ocean breezes and the golf courses are great.

    Decide what you like to do. If your gig is snow mobiles and down hilling, then here are some recommendations for beauty and the people that live there.
    1. Sheridan, Wyoming is absolutely gorgeous. It sits at the base of a stunning mountain range by the name of the "Big Horns". You can hunt, fly fish, anything snow and cowboy culture is alive and well. DO NOT EXPECT really fresh seafood. You had better like steak! But again, it is a way of life, it is "slooooow" living. It is a place where you can leave the engine running with the heater going in the Walmart parking lot.
    2. Panhandle of Idaho is another. There are many small towns to choose from up on the Montana border. Kalispell, Montana is incredible for beauty but very expensive.

    If your thing is 4 distinct seasons and you do not want boil or freeze to death.
    1. Johnson City, Tennessee get's you there. It is 4 seasons, a little snow in the winter but not enough to where you have to ride a snow mobile to work or school or the drug store. Summer is warm enough to sit in a lake but it won't burn your skin off like "AJO, Arizona will". Spring is truly beautiful watching the Dog Wood Trees bloom. Friendly people, affordable, great food and close to National Treasures such as D.C., Smokey Mountains and you even a NASCAR racetrack up the road an hour and half or so.

    If you are watery and need water, I am back to the Panhandle of Florida. If you have won the Powerball and money is no object, I am going to send you Newport Beach, Rhode Island. Drop 10M on a beautiful mansion and call it good. It is pretty, historicala and you can eat breakfast with Paris Hilton on a good day.

    Hope it helps a bit. I do have close with this. Anything in Iowa, South Dakota, Western MN, around Fargo. Draw little circle on your map from Omaha to Des Moines, Iowa and up and down a bit. The reason? Those are undoubtly the nicest, friendliest, most honest, least crime and the backbone of America in terms of Christian and decency in America. Yea, I know thousands will scream. I will refer you to crime statistics. They are without debate. These people have no crime. What does that tell you about the citizens of the area? I mean, the town I live in has had one murder in the last 45 years and that was a domestic thing over she was dying and he put her out of her misery. Bottom line is pick a small town in a corn field in Iowa or a wheat field in the middle of South Dakota if your looking for the greatest folks on earth...

      Ken you are absolutely right, La Jolla is spectacular!  While it's true the homes can be expensive, in today's market it is possible to find great deals.  La Jolla is beautiful, on the Ocean, perfect weather, great for kids.  I love it!

    The places where I had been and had visited are lovely. But, I always find my comforable and happy life at my hometown - Hoi An city, Vietnam.
    Because I have had lovely life here and my hometown is always a peaceful place to come back.
