Somewhere in the Pacific Northwest might be nice. Otherwise maybe Colorado or New Mexico.

$10,000,000 Mansion with swimming pool overlooking the Los Angeles Basin. Followed by a penthouse in Midtown Manhattan. Then probably Miami Beach. After that I'll go with the penthouse at the Lake Point Tower in Chicago. Rounding out #5 will be the largest, most luxurious apartment I can get on the CU-Boulder campus.

I do like Washington and it's among the top 5 I would consider (don't like their tax system though) but how Vermont is turning out does appeal to me

Hmm...very interesting question. High on my list of potential places to live are Boulder, New Orleans, San Antonio, and Miami Beach. And I'd always be happy in New York if costs were irrelevant. Though I am somewhat reluctant about all of those places for a number of reasons. Too small, too touristy, too trendy, etc. That leaves the door open to completely different places like staying in Philly or going to Vermont or something. I think I can narrow it down to:

1. Colorado
2. Louisiana
3. New York
4. Texas
5. Florida

6. Pennsylvania
7. New Jersey
8. Vermont
9. California
10. Oregon


I couldn't help myself...

Eh, if I HAVE to stay in the US then I guess New Hampshire. Maybe one of the western ones too but there's a lot of meth heads and weirdoes out in the sticks so...

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

WA
WY(Only Jackson Hole)
UT(SLC and near Little Cottonwood Canyon)
OR
MT
CO(Too many tourists, not sure if I would like living there)
CA(North CA barely makes into desirable, Orange county and bordering counties are in the bottom 5 "states" )
And that's about it.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

And whoever complained about tourists in Colorado, there aren't if you live here. Virtually no one comes to Denver and in the ski resorts, if you're living there, you won't really run into them, there's a class system in the Vail area haha.

I can't understand why anyone would want to live here. There is literally nothing to do. It's like the South of the Northeast.

Uh...I don't know where you live in PA, but where I am there's more to do than I could possibly imagine taking advantage of.
