Time again for the age-old question: If you could live anywhere in the US, where would you live ..
and why?

This is assuming you could support yourself wherever you wanted to be. So, are you a die-hard city person? Which city? Small town? Rural?

What's your dream hometown?

And, if nowhere in the US would satisfy you, where would you choose to be?

:hi:

2. Will you try to do your internship there?
And stay on there when you practice?

You like cold and snow? Or just the amenities offered by a good-sized, liberal city?

30. I will come back here, if possible
after my time as a Doctor in the Navy is over.

I do like the cold and snow, my family is all here, plus Minneapolis is a great city and Minnesota is a great state, and a blue state at the moment.

5. yeah, that would be really nice, wouldn't it?
I grew up in SoCal in the 70s and 80s, and even then it was still pretty wonderful. Now, some of the magic is gone.

26. Lucky you - I'm in NY, so it's a big trip for me. But I just love your
state. :hi:

The mountains do something to me, I feel different when I'm there. I guess that's why it's called the "Land of Enchantment".

The last time I visited, I was in Santa Fe for about a week and then drove to Taos - it was such a gorgeous drive. And I fell in love with Bandelier National Park, I crawled up into the caves and everything!

And I love, love, love the food!

Minus the hurricanes, of course. :P

28. We would like to retire there.
It's a huge decision, because we also love PA. We have family in both places.

What part of the country has the most moderate climate(over 50, under 80), the least inimical life forms, and the best job for me?

18. New Orleans
But I think it'd have to be a "second home". I love the city, but sometimes I need more elbow room than you'd find in the Quarter.

20. Northern California.
Pick a nice quiet little place close to the woods but also close enough to one of the nice larger cities so I could go party when I want. That would do the trick perfectly for me. I could have nature for the flora and fauna and a nice city for the civilized people.

I've seen the pictures. I want to live THERE.

31. Washington DC
Edited on Sat Mar-07-09 06:33 PM by RFKHumphreyObama
Right in the centre of government, in an overwhelmingly Democratic city with a diverse range of people from different backgrounds

Manhattan comes a close second
