    1. Holden Beach, NC: Beach, warm but not too hot. Small town of Shallote 10min away, Wilmington 30 min away

    2. Asheville, NC: Warmer winters than Indiana, but not hotter summers. Mountains, lots to do.

    Thats about it, I've visited lots and lots of places from Booth Bay Harbor, Maine (hated it) and Tucson, AZ (liked it, but it was Nov not July) to Lake Tahoe and NYC. All had some things I liked (except Maine). But all had significant aspects that I didn't like well enough to move there such as weather, cost of living, local population, etc.

    My top five places would be- UP of Michigan, it just so beautiful there. Outskirts of Tampa Bay, loved the nature and grandparents lived there. South Carolina within 1 1/2 to 2 hours from the coast, I did my basic training at Ft. Jackson and loved the local area. Lake of the Ozarks area in Missouri. great fishing area. Alexandria, IN, I am there now and love the small town atmosphere. Schools seem good here too, especially for their special education program that has treated my little girl so well.

    1) Indianapolis - family, great city, home
    2) Southern California - lifestyle/ beach, jobs
    3) Hilton Head, SC - Planning to retire here
    4) Denver, CO - outdoor activities/ lifestyle (but maybe not in the winter)
    5) Anywhere but Chicago
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    First of all, screw the the Midwest. Hate to say it, Homers, I'll travel to visit family here.

    1. Boulder, Co. Progressive thinkers. Lack of obesity. Great central location for traveling. Great weather year round. Georgeous views everywhere. Close enough to Denver to go into the big city for nightlife.

    2. Las Vegas: North suburbs. With all the entertainment acts that travel through there, I'd love it. Really culturally diverse city, which people don't know.

    3. San Diego- Culturally diverse, great weather, close to the ocean. Really diverse restaurant scene. Laid back attitude.

    4. Washington, DC (suburbs) Melting pot of people, ton of things to do. Really interesting people.

    5. Hawaii- Only because I've never been there and I can't see a downside to living on the ocean in a laid back area like that.
    Downside to Hawaii? $25 cheeseburger with paradise tax... but then again you've probably gone Vegan so no worries. I know Boulder and Washington will cost you too. Expensive taste my friend.

    One thing about Hawaii though is that depending on where you live you are generally a short drive to the one of the many beaches and you can fish right off the rocks and catch your dinner for the entire week. Atleast thats what I would be doing if I lived in Hawaii....

    1. Indianapolis, IN
    Yes, really. Close to my family in Fort Wayne (but not TOO close!), big enough that there is a wealth of things to do and explore, small enough that it isn't overwhelming

    2. Minneapolis, MN
    Like Indy, but a bit bigger and more developed (looking at the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, not just the city limits). Lots of good friends in and around the city. I'd make sure not to spend winter here though!

    3. Chicago, IL
    Yes, I know - I am supposed to hate Chicago. But I don't - it's a great city where you can find pretty much whatever you need/want - but smaller than L.A. and NYC, which is positive for me. Some good friends living here as well.

    4. San Francisco, CA
    I hesitate with this one because of cost of living. So I am just gonna assume that I am getting some money in addition to these homes. The city is beautiful and diverse. If I were to live somewhere long-term in CA (I have currently been living in Southern CA for the past 12 years but have wanted out for at least the past 5 years!), this would be it.

    5. Austin, TX
    Funky little mid-sized city (roughly Indy-sized population wise). Music, music!

    Honorable mention: Boston, MA. My wife is from the general area and she misses it. Tons of culture and intellectualism, which is a big plus in my book.

    San Francisco really is a magical place. There is nothing like it in the U.S. It has unparallelled beauty and charm. The hills, architecture, Victorian homes, bridges, water, and fog all come together to form the most beautiful city in the United States. I really want to go back there.
