I am tired of the "below zero" weather, however, I love anticipating springtime. Minnesota can be brutal in the winter but the seasonal change is always something new. Once the wind dies down we can go sledding, snowboarding, or just walking around in our winter wonderland. It's great!!!

Hate the cold weather. Love the family-friendly environment! Indiana is full of that famous Hoosier hospitality! ;o)

Love the weather, tropical plants and wildlife here.

Hate the traffic, no laws on driving while using cell phones, and too many people that can't speak English.

LOVE the peace & quiet where we live in the middle of nowhere within the mountains of northeast PA but HATE driving soooooooooooooooo far for a decent mall (which is still debatable). I am from NJ & we have the best malls and that is what I am use to. Food shopping is even a pain.

I love the fact that where I live is a small town, and what I don't like is that we don't have enough stores to shop for clothes.

I live in the sunny state of California. I love that it does not snow here or get too terribly cold. I love my location as I live smack in the middle of San Fran and L.A. so many places to make day trips or weekend trips. Close to several beaches, each 2-3 hours away. Mountains 45 minutes away. Down fall is California is known for earthquakes, but no big ones here during my life, but my city is the safest as far as earthquakes in California according to scientists by location so that is good too. Down side is, it is getting so darn expensive to live here someday it may be for the rich only.

I like the easy access to outdoors-y stuff (hiking, camping, rafting, boating), but I don't like walking uphill everywhere!

best? not that expensive, met some good people here, lovely springs & autumns, one nice local art fair

worst? lack of cultural options, almost no coffee shops, no career prospects & sluggish economy, not where I'd want to settle down and raise a family

I love that we can hike, swim, snowboard, sail, claim a mountain, be in the desert all within two hours of our place (Seattle). I dislike that winter means rain more often than not.

I can't say there is anything I like about where I live (obviously I love my friends) but I HATE the weather - never mild, always hot or cold.

What I like most about where I am living is that my family is very close. What I like least is the freezing, long cold dark winters. I have thought about moving, the only thing holding me back is leaving family.

I live in Kentucky. I love it because it's quiet and peaceful but it's far from a lot of things we have to drive to, and there's not much night life.

I live in a place that's very convenient for getting to other places. But most of it's paved over and there's too many people close together.

I live on the beach. I love everything about it. The only down side is that things deteriorate fast.My car , my house , yard furniture it all rusts. What I love is that the people are friendly, the air is clean and bright. I'm always inspired to go for walks and there are healthy people everywhere.

I love being able to walk everywhere. Such an efficient way to wrack up calories burned. I live downtown in a small, capital city.

I love the weather overall where I live (South Texas). We don't really get super cold weather, other than maybe a week or two of hovering around freezing, which is perfect for me, since I strongly dislike winter. Probably the one thing I dislike most about the area is the humidity (also weather related). I'm so close to the gulf that it runs at high humidity all summer, which is rough to go outside and workout in.

It is about SEVEN degrees Farenheit where I live right now.Thank God for working central heating!!! Can you imagine NY winters in colonial days??? *shudders!* How did humans even survive as a species here???
That's least.
BEST?
The museums, the zoo, the historical sites, the public gardens, even the old cemetaries are so fascinating. There are a couple fantastic public markets to choose from, as well.

I live in the Piedmont area of N.C. The exact area is quiet and serene and I love that. The least thing I like is that this area of N.C. is plagued with allergies!! emoticon

I'm in North Idaho, and I love the outdoor beauty and opportunities all year round. However, my least favorite thing is challenging access to "normal" things you would have in a less rural setting. For example, to go to a gym with a pool, I'd have to drive 40 minutes out of the way; it's just not feasable, especially in the winter.

Arizona...LOVE the winters, if I want to play in the snow we drive up north about a 2.5 hour trip, HATE how stinking hot our summers are!

I just moved to Seattle. I love the outdoors but don't care for the damp grey weather in the winter.

So I'm wondering if I should stay or move - What do you like best/least about the area you live?
