I've lived in Reno, Nevada for 2 1/2 years now after living in the Salt Lake City Utah area for most of the previous 47. VERY different at first (the busses run on Sundays!), but I moved here to be with my sweetie and for a job that opened up where he works as well. ~Kim

Gunner71-I went to Florida once, I remembered it being very humid and had big bugs, but it was very pretty. Ungodly HOT I do know about, like 120 plus some summer days....yuck! It is even to hot to swim if you can believe that.

Living in Florida since 1980, moved a million times before that as family was military - Nebraska, Massachusetts, Vermont, Florida in 1973, Panama and Germany. I like the winter time in Florida, it's great weather to workout outdoors, definitely don't like July - September as it's ungodly hot and we don't have a pool yet. I would love it with a pool for summertime!

I was born in Tokyo, Japan, also lived in Okinawa Japan, until I was 18, went to University in San Diego California, then 2 years in Central America, then 8 years in Brazil , loved it there and didn't want to leave but my parents who lived in Japan were getting older so I moved closer to the Mariana Islands. I live now in Guam but I really would love to move back to Brazil. I love the weather (75-88 F all year long) and the warm tropical water but I it's expensive and hard to get fresh produce unless it comes from a tree, kinda boring and small, lack of people to have an intelligent conversation, lack of interesting single men over the age of 25, and sometimes I miss the big city (so I go to Tokyo or Manila for excitement). I tried moving to Australia but couldn't get a long term work visa.. I grew up in Japan but I think my heart is South American, I just really miss the Latin culture, speaking Spanish and Portuguese. I've traveled a lot in this area, and that's been great.

Michigan, the best part is the 4 seasons although I can't say I like our winters. But I love spring and fall here. Going up north to see the leafs change color is something everyone should experience.

Born in Sinton Texas and have a lot of family there but have been here over 40 years. NM sounds nice and sunny. I also need sun!

Dear Berry4,
Interesting. My DH was born and raised in Bellingham, went to college in Seattle and Portland. We lived in Spokane from 2004-2008. Our son went to EWU. We love the green state of WA but retired to NM because I need the sun!!!

I grew up in eastern WA. Moved away at age 17, back to the city of my birth--Portland, OR.
Went to 2 colleges in OR, worked, returned to school in a small OR town. Got my teaching degree. Worked. Met my dh & moved across the river to Vancouver, WA. Been here for 22.5 years now! (longer than anywhere else)

In many ways, it is the best of both--so many things to see & do in the Pacific North"wet". -- However, last year was the first time I was ready to completely move away, after 8.5 months of RAIN. Yuck!

I miss the typical snow of eastern WA, but dh is a farmer at heart & needs to be able to grow things. (We live on 15 acres.) -- We've discussed where we might want to retire, and he says, "Wherever the kids & grandkids land!"

I'm an Air Force brat so here's my list:
Born in Honolulu Hawaii, then to Scott AFB, Illinois, McGuire AFB New Jersey, Hickam AFB, Hawaii, Wurtsmith AFB, Michigan, Offutt AFB, Nebraska. I graduated high school in Nebraska, college too. Hubby and I moved to a small town in Western Iowa twelve years ago and we love it! Still close to the city (Omaha) for shopping and jobs, but a small town is great to raise a family.

Lived most of my life in Fayetteville, NC. Moved to Flagstaff, AZ back in 2000 and lived there until 2005 then moved to Glendale, Az until 2008 which then i came back home to help take care of aging parents. Don't really like living here because of the heat and humidity. Don't care what anyone says...(there is a difference between the heat here and the heat in Az...lol)

I am a Texan - I was born in Lubbock, Texas and moved to the big city of Abilene, Tx when I was 8 yrs old. My Dad was transferred to San Antonio; to Dallas; and back to San Antonio where my brother and I graduated from high school. I've also lived in Houston, and Columbia, Mo. where my husband played college football at the University of Missouri - Columbia. We had a great time there!

My family currently lives in San Antonio, Tx. I love to watch House Hunters and House Hunters International - I would love to retire in a warm climate some day. But I think I will have a hard time convincing my husband to leave Texas.

I currently live in Oklahoma. My DH and I are both from Missouri, but I didn't meet him til I moved to OK. I was born in Illinois then moved to MO at age 4. Lived there for 16 years then moved to Texas, then Colorado 3 years each. I moved back to MO. My job transferred me to OK and have been here for 18 years. I retired last year and am waiting on DH to retire so we can get us a place by the lake. Hopefully soon!

I live in the mountains east of Albuquerque, NM. I grew up in Colorado and in some ways would like to go back there. We chose here though as it puts us reasonably close (6 hours) to my parents, there are some trees for my husband who was raised in Washington state and loves trees, but also sunshine for me as I get depressed with too many clouds. We are also close to an airport and an Air Force base (where I can swim!!!). We have been here 3 and 1/2 years since my husband retired from the Air Force. We have lived in ND, SD, eastern NM, Italy, Iceland, and the Azores (10 points if you know where that is) courtesy of the USAF.

I've lived in Michigan for most of my married life (which is 30+ years now)....except for the brief 1 1/2 years for a job transfer to the Orlando area. We came back home to Michigan.

I grew up in California, but wasn't born there. I was born in Iowa. My parents had grown up in the mid-west and moved us out west when I was a toddler.

I've now lived most of my life in south-central-lower Michigan.

Grew up near St Louis, Mo until I was 22.

Moved to Cincinnati when I got married 32 years ago for 4 years, then moved to Louisville for 4 years where our son was born. Returned here but became a Hoosier - have been living in Indiana for 26 years.

We live in the back of a subdivision where the lots are 3/4 of an acres, mostly trees. It's peaceful. My hubby and I both live 20 minutes form work and since it is away form the city, there is little traffic. What I don't like is that we live 20-30 minutes away from the conveniences of the city.

We will most likely move to Virginia Beach when we retire, since that is where our son is.

I was born and raise and spent my young adult life in Oregon. Got married and moved to the Central Coast area of California.

I've lived here about the same length of my marriage -- 15 years.

There is sooo much to like about this area!

What I don't like is the mold issues and the $$$$$.

And where you'd like to live if any place other then where you live now? Nowhere that I can think of.

I was born and raised in southeastern PA, an hour north of Philadelphia. My parents still live in the house I grew up in, I went away to college about 3 hours away, and have lived about a half hour from my parents since I got married 21 years ago. Not for much longer though! We want to sell our house and downsize next spring, and then when we retire in 2-3 years, we plan on becoming full-time RVers, traveling around the US until we get tired of it, and then eventually settling down in the state we end up liking the most. I do love PA and the four seasons, but as I get older, I tend to hate the humidity and long winters. What I'm excited about the most in planning our RV retirement is that we can travel to places where the weather is just right for a particular time of year - north in the summer (we love the New England states, in particular Maine) and south in the summer. I have not been out west very much, so I look forward to going there, too!

Hubby and I are from Clinton, Iowa. We moved to Kansas City about 25 years ago. While w have all four seasons, we don't have the winters Iowa has. We had to move here for jobs since the industry my husband is in, there's not much of in Iowa that pays well. I don't miss Iowa, but my husband does sometimes. If I had a choice of places to live, i'd prefer to stay here in Missouri.

Born and raised in Ontario, Canada on the southern shore of Lake Ontario and 20 minutes from Niagara Falls and the US border. Lived in Concord, New Hampshire USA for 10 months about 22 years ago; now live on the north shore of Lake Ontario, just east of Toronto.

We have the four seasons here too, and even though I am in Canada, we live in what is referred too as the banana belt, so we don't necessarily have bad snowy winters. I noticed last winter the US was hit hard with snow, us not too bad.

I don't think I would like to live in the south, not that I love cold and snow, it's just the changing of the seasons that is so pretty and offers hope for new chances and starts.

Well I live in the Hudson Valley of New York State. I used to live in NYC proper and loved it, but I needed a better school district for my kids so I moved up here. I do have to say I love having so much nature around me. I have two lakes within walking distance and some beautiful woods and views. If I could go anywhere I wanted to for retirement, I would love to either retire to New England - some coastal area or if I had the funds, I would love a nice country cottage in the English countryside with my garden and nosey neighbors who come over for tea. LOL

I'll start...
I currently live in Iowa Falls, IA, Oh yes the CORN & soy bean state. If there is not corn in the field growing it's soy beans and VS verse.
When I say currently I say this because I've only lived in the house i'm in since last Dec 2010. The year of 2010 was a very hard and ruff one for my family & I.
The economy hit my family hard last year. We lived in Zearing IA for 5 1/2 close to 6 years. Then we moved to Hampton, IA that was short 3 months. Then we had to move again to Popejoy, IA for almost 2 1/2 months then Dec 1, 2010 we moved to our current residence:)

Do I like Iowa yes & no. It's got all 4 sessions. However you have to be a SNOW bunny to LOVE Iowa we have gotten 53 inches of snow in one year. One year we got an inch of snow every week for the winter. It started in Oct and did not leave until the first of May. If you like humidity and cold Iowa is the place to be. The below - freezing temps are so, so hard it always follows with humidity. It BLOWS straight through YOU.
Folks teas me since I'm from Idaho, shot Cindy you grew up in Idaho I say there is no humidity in winter Like there is in Iowa. However the sessions are breath taking, the Springs around here oh man and the colors quite the show so are the Falls, all the colors of the Falls it's spectacular.

I've also lived in Oklahoma for 11 years, Texas 19 months, Kansas for 1year, Oklahoma again 9 months. Now like I said Iowa 7years to this day 8/15.
We love a prefer the south, we have a saying here in the south you can't shovel heat!

Ok whos next?

I live in southern Maine. Absolutely love it. I moved here from New Hampshire (the western edge) in 1982. If I had to pick another place to live it would probably be Washington state.

Hi Ladies,

Thought this might be fun.

Would you be willing to let us know where your all from? And tell us how long you have lived there? What you like or don't like about living there. And where you'd like to live if any place other then where you live now.
If you want yuou can go in to details if not just give what you feel like.


This can be fun:)
