    Never thought of that, since by the way, Atlanta is the capital of such inner-city sin. But thanks for the deep thought, many will wonder what you meant in your choice of words, however my vanity does not run toward bitterness or displeasure, but in all actuality, more for the uninformed and truly untraveled youth. Atlanta is considered one of the top ten cities to live: Atlanta Denver Cincinnati Houston Minneapolis - St. Paul Raleigh - Durham Salt Lake City Seattle Tampa Washington D.C. Â Source But hold your own opine, once you are old enough to understand what good living is about, and as I said, you are young, otherwise you would know of the Buckhead nightlife and the fabulous women involved in those fun evenings.

    Well I think consensus is pointing you towards SoCal. I'd second the recommendation for San Deigo, beauitful city and good restaurants. Around San Deigo I'd recommend some of the smaller communities like Casa Del Mar, etc. If you want to go further north Portland and Seattle are awesome.  Seattle also gets a lot of great bands passing through if you're into that type of thing.

    Seattle does not have 'weather you never have to think about', however. Also, while the people are very surface-friendly, it's very difficult to get to know anyone here.

    the northern part is not gay... well, at least not overtly gay, and it fits all of your criteria.

    I thought you didn't have to think about wearing a raincoat and packing an umbrella every day. Â [​IMG]

    You obviously are not from here. No real Seattlite has an umbrella.

    so you just get wet? how does it work?

    (I usually say that I have never been in Seatle, but I have been to Vancouver a few times, which is similar. this seems to annoy people from Seatle for soem reason)

    First of all, umbrellas are called bumbershoots here. Second of all, no self respecting Seattlite will even pull one out until its raining so hard the water crests the curb. If we were to carry a bumbershoot around whenever there MIGHT be rain, we'd carry one 200 days a year. Most normal rain is dealt with in two ways, either by driving your huge SUV up as close as humanly possible to the door of whatever building you are trying to enter, and then sprinting with all the alacrity you can muster twords the front door, OR (my preferred method) wear a waterproof coat, and ignore the friggin rain. It rarely rains hard enough to merit my attention. Of course, if you are wearing some bespoke shoes, I'd probably reccomend bespoke galoshes to go with them. [​IMG]

    Off of nightowl's list, I live in Raleigh. It fits none of your criteria. Don't move here.

    As for Atlanta, you could live in Buckhead or midtown and satisfy most of what you are after. Venture out of downtown and you're going to encounter both rednecks and rabid football fans. Personally I very much like both types of people. I'm also pretty sure Atlanta is the "big box chain store" capital of the world. I like the city a lot, but the traffic makes me want to pull a Michael Douglas in "Falling Down."

    If you're going to recommend places like Salt Lake City, Raleigh, Atlanta, and Cincinnati of all places (it's shrinking for god's sake); I don't think you quite get what I'm going for here. Plus y'all don't even got that Freaknik no more. Some of you have made some excellent suggestions, though -- a lot I had considered, a few I'd not really looked into before. If only I had the budget to travel right now. I've been a pretty fair amount of places, but I'd like to visit some new ones and revisit some others with the renewed perspective of living considerations.
