I live in Southern California and I hate it here. It's so over priced, crowded, hotttttttt, no jobs, etc. I would love to leave here one day. I'm just wondering where you live and what you like about it? A few things I will miss about Cali is there is always something to do and we are pretty close to everything. There are also some very beautiful spots here.

I live in St. Louis and LOVE it. People bash it... all the time! But those who do either have never lived here or are not from here originally. I live in a suburb about 30 minutes outside of South City and we have great schools, affordable housing (we live in 1700 sq ft 2 story built 3 years ago - $160k!). Heathcare jobs are huge in demand out here right now and you have some of the BEST hospitals in the country and even a couple of the best in the WORLD. I am am getting ready to open a Boutique childcare center in my suburb because we live right near the GM plant which is expanding again! Know what my rent will be for the retail space? $650 a month for 950 sq ft!!!!!!!

I love it here. We moved away for DH's job some years ago... and finally decided to leave everything to come back. Even a 100k income ( that got cut in half when we moved!)... JUST so we could get back to the city that we LOVE

We visited CC last summer...LOVED it! We went to a Chatham As game...it was like walking iinto a Norman Rockwell painting.

Quoting Gingered:

I live on Cape Cod. I mostly love it because of the ocean. It is expensive though. We are thinking of moving to Vermont because we want a bigger piece of land to grow food and we like that the government there actually cares about people and what is best for them.

I live just north of Philadelphia and love it. I love the changing seasons (fall is my favorite), I love that going in to Philly is easy as is going to NYC which my kids love. I love all of the history that's here and the museums. We're also only an hour and a half from beaches and about 3 hours from Washington DC (without traffic!)so overnight trips are pretty easy.

Every time I think of leaving, I want to cry. I am hoping that things change financially by next year so we can stay.
