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.


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.


He never said anything about money and what can I say, I like expensive places I guess? ;-)

I could of mentioned London, but I doubt he would move out there.

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.


I never hear anything bad about Toronto. In fact, whenever anyone describes it they just rave about it. I have some friends who've been there a few times and they always say how nice it is, how beautiful, nice people, stuff to do, etc.

I'll have to get over there someday...

I've seen a lot of this country. I think one of the nicest places I've seen was the town of Cambria, CA.

Westchester County, NY isn't bad either. NYC is a stone's throw away. Mountains and beaches aren't too far off either.

I'll even throw a bone to parts of New Jersey.

I'm a newlywed, and the wifey and I are deep south lifers and want a change of scenery. It might be temporary, who knows, but we want to go someplace cool for a while. And I want to be close enough to see some real baseball. Anyways just wanted to pick the collective brain of the Cafe and I must say I'm glad I did. I've got some research to do now.

Except we're real sticklers for grammar. I'm swerious.

Don't worry though, those stickler jerks mainly stay on the internet and don't go outside too much. :-D

How about our new slogan: If all else fails, why not Toronto?

Toronto - now 99% SARS-free but we'll still take your breath away!

In that case, I'd recommend New England. ;-)

Actually, the area around Boston might not be a bad choice. A place like Cambridge might fit the criteria you mentioned pretty well. Lots of good places in the world, though - have fun choosing! ;-D

Goofy monkey, Texas rocks. ;-D


Since the OP is from the south and wants a change of scenery, it's got to be somewhere north though. I'd say California, but cost of living is relatively high there. Guess it depends on the situation though.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
