How would you choose where to live?

If you could choose anywhere in the US to live, but could not spend the time to travel around and see places first, how would you choose?

Personally I'd start with weather. Some place with mild weather. Then I'd go by quality of schools, taxes, income levels, average home price, amusement, etc.

But doing it all online is like fumbling in the dark!

That's easy. We'd go to where my dad and mom and grandparents retired too, NW Florida. My sister lives there and my brother and his wife own a condo down there too.

Good schools, good small-ish town and family make for an easy decision.

I couldn't choose anywhere in the US to live because I dislike the sociatal ideology and lack of family values.

Like what area? Coastal? Inland?

Coastal. But the cheaper bayside, not the more expensive Gulfside, lol. It's more of a townie feel, not so much touristy.

Do they have seasons? Do they have tornadoes or hurricanes or wildfires?

Cost of living? General safety?

I refuse to ever move to another red state. I'm moving to the Pacific northwest after my daughter finishes university.

When were were looking for a new place to live about 10 years ago, I did a lot of those "where you should live" quizes. There was a really good one that matched your priorities/values to the different locations. Colorado came up a lot for us, but we ended up in Minnesota.

Well. I have my eye on a place I went to on a educational trip with DS several years back. Fell in love with it but can't convince DH. Still, I get house notifications via Trulia and such and look at every one they send me. Through there or ..the other one you can also see the crime info, school info, etc, near the houses.
