A local radio show here in the Greensboro area listed the top 10 places people would like to live and least like to live in the US. Ironically New Yourk City was #1 on both lists and Las Vegas and Los Angeles made both lists.
This got me thinking:
Where would you most like to live in the US? Where would you least like to live?
What is great about where you currently live? What do you like the least?
For me I would say it's a toss up. I really enjoyed visiting Minneapolis last summer. Their State fair is wonderful, my family's version of humidity pales in comparison to the humidity here, and it's very laid back. However, the cold and snow probably would draw me away from living there.
I would not like living in CA again. I was born and raised there and this last visit, just sealed the deal for me. I was accustomed to the traffic, and what not having only ever known that in my life, but now I am spoiled being here in NC. I was so nervous driving around out there and I still remember how much planning you have to do just to go places on the weekend (due to traffic). I still LOVE CA, don't get me wrong. I told DH the only things I miss in CA are: Family, friends, Disneyland, In N Out Burger and good mexican food
What is good about where I live? Spring is gorgeous, fall is beautiful, people are really nice, you can drive anywhere within a few hours (Williamsburg, Washington DC, Myrtle Beach, the Mountains Charlotte, Atlanta, Nashville, etc). Sure it takes longer to get to the beach, but again, not as crowded and virtually no traffic. The drawbacks? No Disneyland, 3 hours to the beach, hot HUMID summers.
While I tend to joke about rednecks and such and "Well it IS North Carolina", I realized how much I really do love it here.
