    Where and when would you most like to live, and why?

    Wow. I´m overwhelmed by the popularity of this thread. Thank you all for your contributions. icon_lol.gif

    I´ve been thinking about this a lot as I have to relocate and can go pretty much anywhere. I want to live now, as we´ve never had it so good, and I want to live in a civilized country where we are treated as real people with the same rights as everyone else (so USA, sadly, is out for now). I was thinking Spain, but the economy has crashed badly there (there are projections for up to 20% unemployment) and am presently thinking of Canada.... (the hot men make up for the cold weather... I hope)

    Where would you live if you could go anywhere?

    Anywhere near the water and/or mountains that has autumn (my favorite season) but not too harsh of a winter... I'm not too picky. Oh, and I should be able to get a job...

    Manhattan would be a dream come true. All the dance opportunities are there. But for now, Philadelphia is a great stepping stone.

    I think for me it would have to be a combination of places. I absolutely love the kind of life I would have in rural Colorado (if really hits home to my rural,
    nature, introverted side) as well as some place like Portland Oregon or San Diego (which gets me going with my social extraverted side). So many places I'd also like to visit too!

    I could be happy living wherever my significant other wanted to live - even if that turned out to be Pitchfork, Arkansas.......(well, maybe not!)

    Actually with no money woes, I'd like houses (or condos) in San Francisco; Montecito; Bel-Air; Phoenix; Denver; Manhattan (upper east side); and Cote d' Azur.

    Realistically - I've got one of those down - but want at least one more before I'm six feet under!

    I like where I live now, against a forest yet in a metropolitan area (los angeles county). icon_biggrin.gif

    But I guess ideally, it would be an ocean front property along the southern/central californian coast.

    The real ideal place is normally near loved ones.

    I don't know enough about a lot of the places I've seen to make a firm decision, but I loved Sedona, AZ. From what I've seen of the weather and topography, I think I'd also like Northern California.

    Tim - since Sedona is near me and I know it well, I'd be happy to show you and your b.f. the best of the best parts of it whenever you like!

    We were in Sedona a few years ago on vacation. It's lovely, but a bit slow placed.

    Primarily, my first assertion is to live in Switzerland because of social, economical, and cultural development of the country.

    But here, in America, I would not mind living in a quiet suburban area where children can play in the streets and where community actually holds value.
    Note: I'm not talking about Wisteria Lane - full of heteronormative fluff - but instead a place that has its flaws but also its sense of thriving community.

    Specifically:

    Connecticut: Madison, Old Saybrook, Greenwich.
    Maine: Kittery, Bar Harbor.
    Rhode Island: Barrington, Newport, Narraganset.
    New Hampshire: Exeter, Portsmouth/Rye, New Castle.
    Massachusetts: Somerville, Nahant, Marblehead, Chelmsford, Andover, Northfield.
    Illinois: Chicago (my favorite city), Lake Forest, Evanston.

    Oh, darling, the West Village is OVER, haven't you HEARD?

    Murray Hill or Gramercy Park for me.
