I live in San Diego/Del Mar area and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Schools are great, weathers good, and I'm 2 and a 1/2 miles from the beach

I live in the Colorado Springs, CO area and I love it. I seriously can not think of a single reason that I don't like living here. There is so much to do outdoors, it is beautiful, I like the weather (summers aren't too hot, winters aren't too cold), we are near everything that we want to be near.

I lived in Anchorage, AK for years and although it was pretty, I most likely would not go back there to live. It just isn't where I want to raise my family. I have lived in MN, as well. GORGEOUS. Loved it there, but still not sure that I would go back there... it just doesn't have what we want there.

If I had to move tomorrow and could pick exactly  where we were going... I would chose the Oregon area, probably. There are two places overseas that we could move to as a family. But if you're just talking U.S.A, i'd pick Oregon.

I haven't found home yet.  I don't think there's any place in the world nevermind the US that I would want to settle.  After about a year or two I get bored and it's time to go again.  I have Gypsy blood...

I'd like to move back to Minnesota, somewhere on the North Shore. It's so beautiful and peaceful up there.

We live in Texas right now and I hate it. It's too damn hot. From March to November is summer.

We're moving to Hawaii in less than 2 months. I'm not sure what to expect.

im orginaly from a small town in NY. I never liked it there growing up. I got married and moved with my husband to CO.we lived in colorado springs and I loved it there. The weather is great and the view is beautiful. We lived there about 2 1/2 years before we were moved. We now live in Clarksville TN and I like it here also. Its alittle differnt than Co but its still nice. The weathers great and the kids seem to like it. My husband is in the army and this is the second time he has been staitioned here. he liked being here best. I think we may buy a house here but in the end it just depends on weather or not the army moves us again.

California, where we live right now. I've lived all over, and this is by far the best state! Nice weather, beaches, things to do, diversity, great hospitals, great neighborhood, and the entire atmosphere is just amazing.

My dh lived in Hawaii in high school. We've visited three times since we've been married, and we almost moved there recently. His parents live in Kauai, and that's the best island, imo. It's like living in a small town, but it's gorgeous weather and landscape! Oahu (which is where you're probably going) is more like a big city. Lots of people (tourists, of course). We enjoyed visiting, but being white I felt like a tourist, and I think I would feel that way all the time if I lived there. It's very expensive; that's the main reason we decided not to move. Good luck, and I'm sure you're going to enjoy it!

Alaska and Minnesota are too cold for my blood! I've been to Minnestoa in the summer, but I've not been to Alaska. I've always heard Colorado is a great place to live. Why Oregon?
