If you could live anywhere....

My DH's job allows us the flexibility to pretty much live anywhere - as long as its near an airport and within the U.S. We currently live in PA and I'm finding it harder and harder to make it through the winters here. So, as the wind whips around outside and the snow flies, I'm pondering where else we could live that is more temperate year around. We would prefer a smaller town with decent schools and would probably stay in the eastern half of the country. Got any great recommendations? Do you love where you live? Tell me about it! If you could live anywhere, where would that be? Maybe your suggestions will inspire a move! But at the very least maybe we can daydream for a little while!

Someplace warm is the first thing that I thought of when I read your question. I would move in a heartbeat if I knew a job was guaranteed. I'm looking forward to reading the responses that you get here.

Nashville TN. People even kids are very respectibly. Will hold doors open for you - even the kids will do this. You will still have winter but nothing like 8-12 inches of snow. Housing market seems to be priced fairly good. Easy to get around on the streets and highways.

I would move to Hilton Head Island SC! Feel in love with everything about it. What I do for work would allow me to move easily, its just hard to pick everything up, sell home/rent, move cars, find a place to live that allows pets, etc. My other choice would be Saint Augustine, FL and Washington DC. DC is just such a beautiful city with so much to do. I would love to move there. My plan is to move in 6 months to a year. Kinda looking forward to a new place, and new area to explore.

Nashville is very nice! Three of my friends live there and love everything about it. Just very friendly, and open people who just seem to want to help you. All three are married and stay at home. They find it very easy to live a comfortable life with kids and its very safe.

Miami, FL is a beautiful city. It is extremely artsy in one part and very business oriented in a another. Go check out Miami!

Northern California -- but only if we also made a loooot of money We visit there often, and just love it. We love the weather, the landscape, the cities, the activities and the culture.

How about an Atlanta suburb? That way you'd be close to the culture of a larger city, but still be in a less-populated area.

We lived on the western side (Austell and Marietta) in the early 1990's -- enjoyed it.

first thought was Hawaii - but then I read you want East Coast

We live in the Raleigh, NC area and love it. I was raised here - moved to England and then CT and have now returned to the area.

I'm with you - San Francisco Bay Area. I lived in San Jose for 15+ years, and LOVED every single minute of it. (It helped that I work in IT, but there are plenty of other types of jobs too.) I would pick the Santa Clara Valley over SF proper - close enough to pop into the city when you want, but not having to drive the hills and fight for parking every day And you have not just one airport nearby, but 3 - SFO, San Jose and Oakland are all within an hours drive.

Unfortunately I had to move to Sacramento about 8 years ago for a job. I'm not so thrilled with this area for a variety of reasons - I am starting to scheme how to get back to San Jose or one of the many nearby towns (they all sort of run together down there). But at least I still have Northern California weather....

How about FL? Then you can get the awesome FL resident discounts The gulf side is just beautiful. I have friends who recently moved to that area and they just love it.
Hilton Head area would be another favorite. It is our favorite beach area and DH is constantly trying to figure out a way to move there
