    Arizona sucks this time of year because of the heat (110 this weekend) but it actually is a great place to live. We have the Grand Canyon of course, but also a wide variety of beautiful scenery. For example, the Sonoran desert has saguaro cacti, while Sedona has the beautiful red mountains. Also, even though it gets hot (talking from a phoenix perspective here), you can ride and be outdoors all year because we don't get snow. The best part is, if you do like snow, pine trees and weather cold enough for skiing is just a 2 hour drive from phoenix to flagstaff! I also believe we have some of the most beautiful sunrises/sunsets here. It may feel like an oven outside during the summer (it's a dry heat at least!), but it actually is a really beautiful state. =)

    Florida is called the "Sunshine State", we have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, emerald green waters, great diving, offshore fishing, Disney World, home of the space shuttle launches, cruise ship ports and basically year round outdoor activities. Oh and the most important thing....ME.

    This reminds me of the tornado coverage last week. Storm chaser was showing some live video and being interviewed by a news caster.

    News caster "Why is that road covered in dirt? That from the tornado passing over?"
    Storm chaser "It's a gravel road."

    We have it all; cities, mountains, beaches, and some of the most beautiful rural areas on the east coast of the US. Climate tends to be temperate, with very few days above 95 in the summer and very few days below 30 in the winter. We're not prone to tornadoes or hurricanes, although the Eastern Shore can get walloped from time to time when a hurricane comes up the coast from the south.

    I'm in a fairly rural area where the land/home prices are great and the property taxes are low. We tend to have plenty of water, so don't have to share wells or restrict water usage the majority of the time.

    I'm not a fan of northern VA, but if you're a fast paced person who likes politics and opportunity, that area is wonderful for both.

    If I couldn't live in VA, my next choices would be Idaho, Montana, or Wyoming around the Yellowstone area. I'm not a big fan of winter 8 months out of the year though, so that's not likely going to happen!

    Nice to see so many people that like where they live. There's pros & cons to everywhere & we can adjust to many things & still survive. I am thankful for my wonderful neighbors who have made us feel welcome here. Since we're very rural there is a lot of helping each other out-you never know when you might need some help in return. As for the weather here-it can get really cold (snow, hail, etc) & the heat is uh...well, early morning & the house is at 90 already-going to be a scorcher!

    I really like NC. Beaches on one side. Mountains on the other. Decent weather other than the humidity in the summer. Just to many darn people. I'm trying to figure out where I want to go after retirement. My wife has already nixed going back to Montana. that's where she is from.

    Well, NM has mountains, few deciduous trees, little precipitation, and wide open deserts - that is all I need to be happy. Oh, and the people are friendly, that is a plus.

    Texas!!!


    That is all.

    LOL!

    For real, though, there aren't any states I can think of where I think "I would never want to live there" simply because it's the state. There are areas of the country where I wouldn't want to live because it's too cold or has too many trees...or too many people (you seriously couldn't pay me enough money to even visit NYC or LA), but most of the country is beautiful, in it's own individual way.

    I live in Southern California in a small town. And I LOVE it! I'm an hour from great mountains, an hour from the beach, an hour from three different amusement parks, and an hour from LA. We never have super cold winters(we get snow maybe once a year) and even when it's in the triple digits here, it's never humid! I hate humiditiy so that's a major plus!
    And earthquakes aren't even that bad. GO CALIFORNIA! 🙌
