    I've thought a lot about relocation the past several months...a few cities such as NYC, Boston, Austin, San Diego and a few others are on my map.

    So if you had to pack up and move somewhere different, where would ya go?

    Without a doubt, it would be Stockholm. And in just a little over 18 months, that will be a reality.

    San Diego is probably my favorite city, so I'd happily move there.

    I am planning to pack up and move to Denver! I tend to move on whims, so trying to plan a bit more this time.

    But San Diego would be next on the list. Vancouver (BC), LA, Rio de Janeiro, and New Orleans would be the others.

    And FriendsOnly: I lived in Sweden and Stockholm is absolutely one of my favorite cities.

    Any place that doesn't remind me of Kansas City & it's sorry "selection". I've been to Boston & Pittsburgh, although, I would love to see more of the east coast, If on a lucky break, jettison to Europe, maybe Norway(:

    Denver!. I seached the country. I don't regret moving here for one second. I moved from Virginia. It is not as cold as folks think - that is at higher elevations, taxes, housing, healthcare are around the national average.

    Do your research, especially for San Diego. It is an expensive place to live if you have to own a car (and Seattle is working on catching up FAST). Do the math before you start salary negotiations.

    It's expensive to bring a car into California that doesn't have california emissions and the state taxes plus their increases are something to be aware of.

    The only good news is your energy bills should be low as the weather is mild 10 months out of the year.

    My Seattle rent will be going up $300 in October. Thanks for asking.

    In reading over this list, I see one of my favorites listed, Seattle. That area is absolutely beautiful with a clean and fun downtown area. Great food, interesting people, however, the housing market is really expensive.

    I'm going to drop a few jaws here and give you a city where I would easily move to and be happy to call it "home." The downtown is very active with many high-end shopping choices, lots of upscale and creative restaurants and two professional sports venues.

    The city is also home to many leading industries and recently opened a great new airport. Outdoor activites are plentiful in the summer and the arts community there is also very strong. And a huge plus: commuting around the city is a piece of cake. Traffic is very manageable.

    What city is this?

    Would you believe.....Indianapolis, Indiana.

    Indy is just like a smaller (and safer) version of Chicago and when I returned there from being away for over 30 years, I was so shocked. This place is a find.

    San Francisco, San Diego, or Honolulu.

    Also, consider Vancouver, Toronto, or Montreal.

    Sydney if you're really up for a totally different experience.

    I would move to, perhaps in this order:

    1. Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
    2. Oslo, Norway.
    3. Cape Town, South Africa...

    There are others on the list, but these are the cities that really caught my attention as potential places to live.

    Cheers,

    Sean

    Just did to San Francisco.

    My criteria was being close to water and mountains, active outdoor lifestyle, city amenities with a strong art and business community, large triathlon community, accessibility to great natural beauty (easy weekend getaways to places like Big Sur/Carmel, Yosemite, Tahoe, etc.) and the energy of the city and surrounding area. It's a great blend of NYC and San Diego with the added benefit of a spectacular setting.

    When I was choosing, my other top picks were:

    Vancouver
    Seattle
    Portland
    Denver/Boulder
    San Diego

    I feel like a lot of gay men have been moving to Berlin in the past few years.
    I've lived in 3 major cities, and have come to the uncertain conclusion that life is pretty much the same everywhere--the whole life is greener in another city theory is a bust. and yet, i'm still going to relocate to nyc soon (but i'm already a commuter)
    i have given thought to moving to austin or seattle lately, too.. xD
