I picked KC because I love KC, DFW because I live in that area now and I like it. And DC because I think it's an awesome city. It's big enough that it has everything you'd want-sports, museums, restaurants, architecture, festivals, etc. But it also has a lot of green spaces and you can go out to Virginia and go to hiking trails. You can live there for years and still find cool little neighborhoods and places you've never seen.

Kansas City -- I like it here, and most of my family/close friends live here.

Phoenix/San Diego/Southwest -- Weather might be the biggest reason I'd move, so if I do, I want to get rid of winter.

Seattle -- there's a lot to do... pro/college sports, mountains, close to the ocean, good night life in multiple areas, good food, it's one of the smartest cities in the country...


Others I might consider...

Chicago -- Winter would suck, but there's so much to do, and it would be a short direct flight to KC.

Colorado Springs/Denver -- If I can't get away from winter, I might as well be close to skiing.

Among the cities listed, which don't include San Diego, I'd go with:

Denver (Great place - easy #1)
Seattle (Seems solid, but a bit driving intensive unless you find the right spot)
New York City (I'd love to live here for about two years, but no longer)
Orlando (I have a soft spot for Florida, though without much knowledge)
Los Angeles (Laguna or Newport? Sure. Maybe other beach cities. Inland? No way.)
Las Vegas (There are worse places, and it doesn't have a lot of big-city hassles)
Phoenix (It's probably my least-favorite city in the west, but at least it's in the west.)
Chicago (Downtown would be good. No on the burbs.)
Boston (Unknown commodity, but that puts it in the middle.)
Oklahoma City (Wince. At least traffic's not bad.)
Dallas/Fort Worth (Boring and traffic. Why is there a city here?)
Washington DC (Maybe in Georgetown, but nowhere else. East coast, high traffic, out of touch with reality)
Atlanta (Yippee. The South with traffic jams.)
Indianapolis (As a city, this is one where the heart monitor goes beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep in one continuous tone.)
New Orleans (Corruption, obesity, and annoying accents, but at least there's some nudity.)
Memphis (I'm not sure if there's an American city I would like less.)
Kansas City (I spent half my life trying to get out of Missouri. I'm not going back in.)

If I HAD to choose I guess it would be Seattle for the season changes, proximity of national forests, being close to the ocean and British Columbia.

None of them tickle my fancy however.

If you chose NYC I question when the last time was you've been there. Unless you know the city or have some serious inside connections it's like Disney World gone very, very wrong.

You would have to pay me a million dollars a year to live there and that might get you a decent apartment and 3 squares a day.

NYC is amazing and has improved dramatically from a decade or so ago due to less crime and pollution.

I agree that it is ridiculously expensive though. I have friends there that would live like kings in other cities, but in NYC they are basically middle class.

I went to classes in Manhattan every weekend for a year and a half and have grown to loath the place. As the saying goes; great place to visit, wouldn't want to live there. If I knew people who could show me all the cool restaurants and hang outs tucked away in the alleys and introduce me to the owners and cliques it might be a different story but if you don't have those inside connections it's a McCity filled with McRestaurants filled with McPeople that overcharge and are unfriendly.

So you think the city sucks because you didn't meet friends to show you the cool places?

I lived there for two years and loved it. It has an energy that I have never felt before in another city. You definitely have to go out and explore the city to really appreciate it, but it is so diverse and exciting that it's hard for to believe that anyone loathes it.

I wouldn't mind moving back there, but I'm not sure I would want to raise a family there. It is just too ridiculously expensive.

Dallas/Fort Worth - While there are some downsides to the DFW area, I've had some pretty good years here. Moving here was one of the better decisions of my life.
Denver - I like Denver. I could probably live there but the Bronco fans would definitely be annoying.
Indianapolis - I can't think of one single reason I would ever want to visit Indiana, let alone live there.
Kansas City - I wouldn't hate living in KC again but I probably wouldn't choose to live there again.
Las Vegas - My dream as a young man was to move to Vegas and become a professional poker player. That dream is dead but I can think of worse places to live.
Los Angeles - I love SoCal. I could live in a suburb of LA. If money were no object I could see myself in a house in Malibu.
Memphis - pass
New Orleans - 10 years ago I probably would have lived there. Not now.
New York City - Too many people.
Oklahoma City - I wouldn't wish living in OKC on my worst enemy.
Orlando - No. I don't ride roller coasters anymore.

If I ever had to live near any city, it would be KC, where I am now.

People in cities are assholes. Period. They drive like assholes, they act like assholes, they are assholes.

Kansas City, at least the suburbs, are like this weird hybrid of rural and city. People will make eye contact. They'll talk to you, and generally be friendly about it. It's like having some of the benefits of city life but with country tendencies. I sort of look at it like halfway between the mountains of West Virginia (which I don't like all that much) and a major city (which I don't like *at all*). Most of the good without most of the bad.

Sure, I live in OP surrounded by yuppie assholes in their lexus' and mercedes', but it's really not all that bad...

I voted for just KC, because of the Royals and Chiefs plus it would be just a 2-hour interstate drive to see MU fb and bb (and my parents and sister and her family).

However, if money were no object, I was tempted to add New York, because I love it so much. I also love San Francisco/Northern California -- if I had so much money that it would allow me to put up with all the other shit that goes on there.

I also flirted with Atlanta, Phoenix, Orlando and Chicago. Been to Atlanta and Orlando numerous times and they have a lot to offer, but the traffic just kills me. Phoenix I've been to once and really liked it, but I don't know if I could put up with the heat (and all the immigration politics). Chicago I love but the weather probably would be a deal-breaker for me.

Edit: Dallas I've never been to, but it's always intrigued me. I worry about the traffic there, too.

I grew up in Kansas City and lived there for 40 years before I moved to San Diego. I have lived here for 15 years now and it is awesome. I could never move back to Kansas City because of the awesome weather here. The only thing I miss is going to the Chiefs games and maybe going to see the Royals but they have sucked since 85. Oh, and the BBQ.

So I pick San Diego and I can't think of anywhere esle I would want to live.

February would be a long month, I'm afraid.

The other oddity was that I couldn't find a pizza place there. There was one place on the edge of town that seemed so expensive that I didn't go there, and maybe there was another place that was far enough away that I feared getting eaten by bears. So I didn't have pizza and then couldn't get any pizza for another three weeks after that. Pizza is apparently quite rare in rural Alaska.

Phoenix - Well, not in Phoenix, maybe 50/100 miles to the north. Beautiful deserts without being too hot, easy access to spring training, easy access to Vegas, less or no light pollution so you can actually see the night sky.

Dallas/Ft. Worth - Taxes

In order:

New York City - I love this city. In fact, I'm in the planning stages of moving there after I get done with school (any tips from people who have lived there are much appreciated!). This city has so much to offer - incredible nightlife, great variety of eating establishments, lofty career goals, etc. I can't wait to get out there.

Los Angeles - I don't see the hate for LA as per some previous posts. Out of the times I've visited LA for business and pleasure, I've always had very positive experiences. Maybe it's my big-city attitutde that gives me some bias. Anyway, I would love to live in LA (although I'm not a big fan of the heat).

KC - I've always loved KC. With the addition of P&L, it's gotten even better, IMO. It not only hosts my two favorite teams (Chiefs, Royals), but it also has some amazing attractions that I adore as well (the Nelson, Sprint Center, P&L, etc).

Outside the US:

London - I would be absolutely thrilled to move here. Even though it's EXTREMELY expensive to rent here (even higher than NYC and San Fran), I still love everything about that place.

Gambling does not appeal to me. Vegas does. People gamble is Vegas because it's there, but that's not WHY people go. At least not the people I know.

It's about the night life. The hotels are sights to behold all in themselves. All the bars and drinks, live bands all over the place. Walking down the street sipping a big ass drink wrapped around your neck.

I know it may not be on your list of places to visit, but i know you'd enjoy it. We have a great night life here in SD, but it pales in comparison to Vegas.

There is so much to see, do , drink and eat it's almost overwhelming.

I can't wait till I get my fat bonus. I'm going back to Vegas again. The Hotels are freakin' incredible.

Hell, if you find the right hotel, you won't need to leave it. When i use to go with our shop to the SEMA show, we found a hotel off the strip for $65.00 a night.

Inside this hotel was an Arena, 14 screen movie theater, 9 restaurants, 1 buffet, Arcade, couple of swimming pools, day spa etc etc.

This was kind of where I was going with not being interested much in Vegas myself. I have no moral opposition to gambling, I just don't find it fun. I don't care about nightlife a lot so that isn't a selling point for me. Fancy hotels... ok, not gonna get me there... big pretty lights and lots of food... gotta do better. I'm sure Vegas is a lovely place, I just haven't found a reason to be excited about it for myself.

I'm surprised, because people who really like it there tend to talk about how it's a very underrated city, "the country's biggest secret," etc. I was there last Fall and really enjoyed the area. Stayed next to the Needle for Bumbershoot, went to Pioneer Square/Pike Market, the U District, and Capitol Hill, which were all very walkable and had good public transportation. We spent a day at Olympic National Park, and I'm not a huge nature person, but I really enjoyed it.

As far as the daily grind.... I get tired of KC's Spring, because just the other day it was like 40 degrees at 5pm, and I just want it to be hot... so that would be annoying in Seattle, but there's also not much extreme cold or hot weather. I'd probably have to live in the city, and after seeing the traffic going north from Tacoma when we were going south to Olympic National Park, there's no way I'd live down there or put up with traffic like that on a daily basis.

For the first/only time in my life, I was asked if I needed a place to smoke crack, so the people are friendly.... ;)

True. Of the three I voted for, I hadn't really been to two of them. I guess I have been the Atlanta, but only the airport, so you can't really count that. Of the other ones I've been to.

Dallas: Wouldn't hate it, but wouldn't want o try to get around the city. Always seems very FAST paced.

KC: I voted for it, and like many different parts of the city. Plaza, downtown / city market, Brookside, etc. Plus, LOVE the BBQ!!!!

Vegas: Too tourist oriented. I don't really look at it as a place to live.

LA: No thanks. Too damn big.

Memphis: Some of it seems very nice. Germantown area. Others?

New Orleans: Another no thanks. Just couldn't do it. Would probably always be waiting for another Katrina.

Oklahoma City: Not a bad place at all. Not too far from family. I could live there.

Orlando: Another tourist destination, but does seem a little more livable than Vegas.

Phoenix: Been there several times, and kinda like it. Every time has been in the summer. It's a huge city, but still has kind of a small town feel.

DC: Lots to see and do, but would absolutely hate the traffic.
