For me, Maine. Vermont.

Not sure why. They just both sound so beautiful, peaceful, and rural. All of which I need/love/desire.

Although I don't want to live there, I do think the Northeast would be a great place to hang out for an extended period of time.

Hard for me to choose. I have lived in 10 states and visited the rest. I would like to spend a year in the Northeast, Washington, Alaska, Montana, Wyoming, and Oregon. I don't know if I am going to live long enough to do that.

Colorado (Mountains)

I love the beauty of the mountains in Colorado and the cooler summer temperatures. I would never leave Texas as my whole family lives here but I would love to have a home in Colorado for the summers. If I get to select the city I would choose Glenwood Springs so I could enjoy the thermal water there while looking at the mountains.

Hmm. I've lived in many different states, so without picking those.... I guess I'd think of the following:

Maine
Massachussetts

I visited these two states very briefly this summer, so I have a touch of familiarity, but we're talking between 60 minutes (Maine) to 6 hours (Massachusetts) of experience doing anything other than driving for either of those places

I've always thought it would be nice to live in CA, somewhere with really temperate weather and by the ocean. And I've never even been there . Totally hypothetically speaking of course. On a more practical note, I wouldn't want to deal with the expense, traffic, or higher probability of natural disasters.

I lived in a resort town in the mountains of CO and HATED it. The weather was horrible, the roads/driving anywhere was horrible, the people were snobby, and there was nothing to do outside of skiing (or anyone interested in doing anything else). Plus the fact that it's built for tourists and there are no conveniences nearby. I didn't realize I was a city person until I lived there. I appreciate the little things now, like having choices in radio stations and being able to get to basic stores like Target in a few minutes.

I've always thought that Montana and Wyoming looked beautiful in pictures. I could envision myself living in a beautiful log cabin with acres of land and horses. Maine and Vermont also look like beautiful places to live. I think it would be fun to live in a big city like New York City, and experience the hustle and bustle lifestyle for awhile, too. I would have to have a fabulous apartment, though, not just some tiny hole in the wall!

Portland, Oregon or somewhere in the Northeast, like Maine. I love the idea of beaches that arenít California-y (but I truthfully have only ever been to one non-Californian beach: in Marthaís Vineyard, which was gorgeous!!)

Vermont in spring, summer, and fall. Arizona in the winter. I just visited a friend in Vermont- it was beautiful, but the winters sound brutal. I spent the last tow winters in Arizona and loved it, but would hate the hot summers.

It's interesting that there are so many people answering Maine. I lived there as a kid and return at least once a year! We should have a PT reunion up there! It is truly lovely, natural and serene. We're on the ocean and there are mountains within driving distance if you'd like to go there. I've been lucky enough to have traveled many places. I've never been to New Mexico and I think I'd like it.

I'd like a summer home in Maine, but don't think I'd like the winters. I'll get a winter home in Florida, and live on the coast of CA. Of course, I'd have to make a little more money first.

I'd live in West Virginia, in the back hills. I am pretty much a hermit and I hear that you can be as isolated as you want in West Virginia. But truthfully, I am very happy with where I am now. I love Pennsylvania!

Somewhere in the mountains with lots of trees and lakes, where the leaves change color and you get four seasons. But I don't want snow (well, a little would be okay, but that's it) or extreme temperatures. Okay, in my dreams the daytime temperature variance would be from about 65-80. Does that place even exist? My first thought was the northeast, but I don't think I'd survive the winters unless I could be an absolute hermit and not leave the house.

I’ve only lived in RI but if I had to choose another state perhaps South Carolina or California?? I do so love New England and really would not want to live anywhere else. The nice part about RI is that the winters are fairly mild. We do get snow, but because of proximity to ocean, it melts fast. We rarely have any of the weather extremes the western and mid- west states receive.

I've lived in 2 states...Wisconsin and AZ. I prefer Wisconsin. I LOVE fall. The only place other than WI I would live is if there was somewhere that it was always fall.

I'm strange that I don't mind most winter here either.

Also, we don't get a lot of natural disasters around here (some places get flooding, but not my area).

I'm from the southern part of the state, so it's not quite as beautiful as the northern part, but it is still nice in the fall.

And the best part of WI...CHEESE.

Fresh squeaky cheese is the best. We had some educational trainers here from FL and we made sure they left with fresh cheese

For some reason I always thought of Wyoming as a state I would like to live in. I also think Williamsburg, VA would be a fun place to live.

I've always wanted to live in the mid-Atlantic near a beach! They have four seasons and winters are cold, a little snow here and there, but not brutal. I would love to be only an hour or two from DC because I love visiting there. I think its beautiful there as well!
