the highlands.. is that in castleberry? if so, I have a friend who lives there. I hear its where the artists live. I dont know. Maybe Im not meant for that... maybe Im too normal for a crazy lifestyle like the art life seems to be. Maybe Im just too scared of pretentious A-holes.

Why would you want to move somewhere warm, the weather is great here. I think today's high was about 13.

If you lived in Short North/Victorian Village/Italian Village, the neighborhood is a little slice of heaven. Tons of young kids, varying degrees "of hipsterness", tons of local galleries and shops to support. I can buy a pair of APC New Standards a block away from where I live..... tons of great locally owned restaurants, great happy hours, gallery hops. All for very low $$, and you can even get away with out having a car here. P.S. I grew up in Chicago and a lot of people living in the Short North are from Chicago originally. Lot's of advantage to living here IMO (granted Chicago is a beautiful city). Good luck trying to find a pair of APC jeans down the street in Chicago btw
Short North is a lot of fun. What's that huge antiques emporium in SN? I think it's on the corner of 4th & High, but I might be wrong. It's great. I imagine life in Dublin/Westerville/Upper Arlington is just like that of any other suburb: mundane, quiet, boring for anyone without a family. Actually, to be fair, I am told UA is very nice.

Manila. Your meager dollars go a long way there and the girls will love you.

I'd like to support San Diego here. We have beautiful beaches, beautiful weather, and some pretty good looking people too. I don't think it's as dirty as LA, and crime rates have only been going down according to recent TV news reports. If you ever get a chance to visit San Diego, you may notice that there is less stuff to do than in LA (for example, our Barneys CO-OP doesn't sell shoes) but there's not much else I could ask for here. Except maybe some more palm trees along the streets (not that there is a lack of palm trees) and a Ralph Lauren store.

There is a Ralph Lauren store in La Jolla.

Portland, Oregon. Awesome city, great vibe, walkable.

Music- check
Local art- check
Culture- check

I guess the weather is the killer here.

You also might like Venice, California or Silverlake area of LA? Not really modern or progressive really, just kind of bleh.

But Portland, aside from the weather is great. Excellent transport, friendly people, great food, great everything.

I guess you guys recommending places in SoCal missed out on the part where he said being in Seattle was too much. California would probably kill the poor guy.

UA is fine. Lots of very nice homes, OSU golf course/Scioto CC, etc. Grandview is much better for the under 40 crowd though.

May be for an older crowd those wouldn't be the worst areas? The idea of shopping at strip malls, etc. is not very appealing to someone like me who lives on High St and shops locally down here. I get groceries at North Market and Clintonville Co-op, etc. German Village is the most off beaten place I'd live down here... Those houses in UA are like the size of my 2nd garage in Chagrin Falls....... Not nearly big enough for me to settle for that lifestyle
