...I mean, if you like where you live, that is....
I presently live in Western Massachusetts, but would like to live in a more cosmopolitan area. I grew up (teens and up) on Long Island, but the housing there is ridiculously expensive, not to mention the nightmare of traffic. Still, that city feel is missing here. I miss loud and direct...and museums.

So where do you live, and why should I move my family there?

Cosmopolitan? I don't think I can help you there, but I can offer this tidbit:

Quote:

The atmosphere in Old Town Fort Collins inspired Disneyland’s Main Street USA. In fact, Disney’s City Hall, bank and other buildings are near replicas of the structures found in downtown Fort Collins.

Plus, no real threat of tornadoes or hurricanes (or anything like those), and the mountains are beautiful. And, the college kids aren't so bad, and crime is relatively low.

Also, Frommer's named Fort Collins the fifth best place to raise a family.

We're kind of far from Massachusetts, but... ::shrugs::

Chrisis, try this site: http://findyourspot.com . It's fun. You answer questions about your perfect location and then they give you a list of matches. One of my friends is actually building a house where they told her she would like to live. So far they were right.

I bet it doesn't have "close proximity to other Browncoats" on there, though.

Can I talk you into moving nearby, as opposed to where I am? I'm in Stephenville, Texas, an hour southwest of Ft. Worth. Not the best, but the job I have isn't bad. If I could move the family I'd take them three hours down the road to San Marcos. It's around an hour from San Antonio, according to National Georaphic the fastest growing city in America, and an hour from Austin, the Live Music Capital of the World, and home to a goodly number of Browncoats. The weather is superb, and the cost of living is much lower than Mass. Besides, Summer's from S.A. and you never know when you'll run into her.

That's my vote, good luck. Make sure you let us know what you decide.

Grizwald - Sure we are - but, who knows? What if meeting new friends vs. connecting with more well-known friends would cut down on the number of options?

(Just playing devil's advocate... is all. )

Atlanta! It's got low cost housing, great schools, nice climate, and it's very cosmopolitan...same could be said of Houston:)

Well, I can give you a reason not to move to my area. There's nothing to do here, and the job market sucks (I live in Saginaw, MI).

However, I would suggest checking out Ann Arbor, MI. One of the coolest cities in existence, if you ask me. A little expensive, though it might be comparable to Massachusetts, I'm not exactly sure.

So when are ya getting out?

Western Mass has beautiful mountains (Berkshires, where they print their own money), and nice, rolling hills, and good schools, but it's just a tad expensive, and the indiginous peeps have no sense of humour.

Not for a while, still have school unfortunately.

I'm pretty sure Michigan is somewhat cheaper than stuff out In New England (with the exception of places like Grosse Pointe). Word of warning though, the natives of the northern areas have very strange behaviors (hides from the hordes of angry Yoopers ).

Austin, TX. Where else are you going to find a theater that has events like this http://www.originalalamo.com/online_tix/show_details.asp?show_id=4436

Not to mention the Firefly marathon watching the whole season in one sitting.

The drafthouse is the bestest.

Oh and if you're thinking that Texas is too conservative you're right. Though Austin is the liberal haven of the state.

Ten Reasons to Live in Dublin, Ireland

1) Generally speaking, the weather isn't capable of killing you.

2) The wildlife isn't usually capable of killing you either.

3) We're one of the last countries on Earth that still looks green from space!

4) You're always within thirty minutes of the beach. Okay, so we only get two weeks of sun per year...

5) The scenery is beautiful.

6) You get to stare at it for hours because the traffic is terrible.

7) There are forty different accents or dialects within a fifty mile radius.

8) We have museums!

9) And castles!!!

10) And stuff way, way older than castles! If they're not in Dublin they're usually only a couple of hours away at most. This is a very small country.

There's also the fact that I live here, but I think the stuff I mentioned above covers all the important points. Just in case you take this post seriously I should also point out that Dublin's house prices and cost of living are through the roof, but there are cheaper places about. With better traffic. But probably not museams. Although there may be castles. And cairns and raths and other cool stuff.

And, when spoken by a female, there isn't a one that's not hypnotically beautiful.
