                Iowa.
                1) it's not on the east coast
                2) it's not on the west coast
                3) it's not on the south coast
                Flyover farm country is just right for me. 4 seasons(usually) and nice people with common sense.

                  1. Change of seasons (although I'm liking winter less and less).
                  2. Just a hours away (or less) from mountains, lakes, seashore, city activities in Boston & NYC. The mountains/ lakes & seashores in VT, NH, ME, RI, CT & NY offer a wide range of activities and sites to see all year round.
                  3. Great hospitals, colleges, culture, history, restaurants, museums, etc.

                  Of course there are plenty of downsides to MA as well, but overall, once you get outside Boston, for the most part, New England is a great place.

                    education system (for kids through college)
                    believe or not, diversity of population
                    quality of hospitals and health care

                    least favorite would be taxes, but considering others, is OK

                              Snow is just fine, if you are young enough. As a downhill ski racer for many years, mid teens to late 20's, snow was GREAT. Drove many, many miles to race. Sometimes in really snowy conditions & many times at 0* F or less. Great when young, even acceptable for many years, not so much over 55. But no earthquakes, hurricanes, crazy wildfires. Just an occasional tornado. Damn short drag racing season though.

                                I hear people refer to "Earthquakes" occasionally...
                                Being from California, I have only been though one that was worth mentioning in 1989. There have been others of minor concern that did no property damage aside from knocking glasses off of shelves. That is one in 30 years.

                                Just three eh? Ok...
                                1. Environment: This is truly God's country and whether you like mountains
                                or flatlands, we have plenty of both. Everything grows like crazy here; we
                                have tons of lakes and rivers for fishing and recreation; you can hunt about
                                any critter, too.
                                Climate? We get all of it depending on what part of the state you're in.
                                Unless you move to one of the few cities we have, population density is low
                                and the air is clear.
                                2. People: If you're uncomfortable striking up a conversation with a total
                                stranger at the drop of a hat, you might not like it here.
                                Not only are we like that, folks that aren't are considered downright rude.
                                Not kidding. Best smile and greet the lady behind the counter at the gas station,
                                because she's going to - and when she asks how you are, she actually means it.
                                Yes, we have tons of churches, but even those who don't regularly attend stick
                                to a certain Christian ethic in regards to being pleasant, charitable and ethical.
                                3. Freedom out the arse. A very conservative state, we don't cotton to impinging
                                on folks' rights around here. Our sales taxes are heavy, but other than ridiculously low
                                real estate taxes, we don't have any others really.
                                No state or local income taxes. You wanna modify your car? Have a party.
                                As a result, cost of living is about as low as it gets and good old fashioned horse trading
                                is commonplace.
                                You wanna live in relative isolation and be left alone? That's fine too.

                                Oh....and yes, we don't give a damn "how you did it back home".
                                You're here now. :thumbsup:

                                  What I like about were I live is, there is never a boring day. A scenic (free) ride across the harbor on the ferry and the whole world is open for you.
                                  My cousin lives outside of Denver and has basically two places to food shop. I literally have dozens and dozens, all in competition for your business.
                                  All offering the freshest and best. The restaurants, entertainment, shopping , education are the best. NYPD/ FDNY/ and other services are also the best. I guess right now at our stage of life unfortunately the most important is healthcare. We have some of the best doctors and hospitals not only in the country but the world and I can testify to that.
                                  Another thing I like and will miss if I move is I can walk out my door, go two blocks down the street and have anything I want or need within a short walk. If I dont feel like driving I dont have too.
                                  I would also say the diversity of the city is also important

                                    Hunting
                                    Fishing
                                    Solitude, which can be easily found quickly

                                    Not:
                                    All damn black flies
                                    Mosquitoes
                                    And yes snow, which helps hunting but can go away as soon as season is over!
