New York City ain't bad. Chicago is ok. Philly is a nice location.


How about a place where you can get a job :-? ?

Well depending on how old you are, just outta college age?, I'd say go down to florida or south for a few years, the job market down there is growing and its swarming with hot girls... part of the reason Im goin to college down there


but I'm from New England and love it (Connecticut). Its really a nice place to live because you get to experience all the seasons, have all the major sports with in two hours or less. Definatly something to look into

High priorites would be a mid-sized city, close enough to drive to a couple MLB games a week, low crime, something different, a change of scenery from the deep south.

Beaches, mountains, all that sounds cool right off the top of my head. I'm not a big hunter. Or golfer. But I like the outdoors. Yet I really wouldn't want to live in the country.


Maybe Phoenix? I liked that when we visited my brother in law, Dbacks + LA and SD within distance.

We have a nice MLB setup here in Champaign, as we get Cubs, Sox and Cards action w/ the Brewers and Reds not too far off either. The scenery is really flat though which is not too exciting unless you are into prairies or whatever.

Places I have enjoyed a bunch would include:

- Seattle - possibly moving there at the end of the year
- San Francisco
- New York
- Boston
- Philly

Also if you would be interested in looking outside the U.S. Vancouver is a pretty nice place and isn't to far out of the states.

It might sound biased, I'm a Mariners fan, but I think Seattle is a beautiful city. I personally live in Texas, you probably wouldn't like it if your trying to get away from the south (although the ladies are fine down here). Seattle has been really awesome whenever I've been up there. It's not mid-sized though so it might not be what your looking for.

The bay/silicon valley. SF would be what I would recommend but if you are looking for something a little smaller then there are lots of great cities in the surrounding areas that probably offer a lower crime although still high housing prices. If you can afford it Cali is the place to be ;-D

Just out of curiosity, whats your situation? I mean, everyone wants to be able to move anywhere but what about reletives, relationships, friendships, JOB?! Are you in some really unique situation?

But as for the answer:

-Madison, WI, NON Campus area is very nice.
-SF is incredible, but expensive.
-New York is picky, you either love it or hate it.
-I lived in Chicago for 11 years, its fairly nice, very cold though at times. I swear the Cubs fans used to be better though, not so the past few years.
- Seattle is cool, has some nice hiking trails, baseball team with cheap tickets, nice downtown.
- If all else fails, Toronto. I am swerious, Toronto took my breath away. The people are extremely nice, the downtoan is much more urban then I expected, everything just...clicks.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Orange County is one of the nicest places I've ever lived (only one actually :-D )

But I've been to New York, Philly, Orlando, San Jose, Chicago, Dallas, LA, San Diego, Boston, Baltimore and none of those places compare to the easy living in the O.C.

Those top three are the three most expensive places to live in America. I can vouch for how nice San Francisco is, but it's ridiculous to live there.
