I like where I live too, in southern Australia. I did live in Melbourne which was cool, and I reckon I'll move somewhere to the eastern coast eventually.

I live in a condominium in the southwestern suburbs ... 100 miles away from Chicago in the Central part of Illinois.
I love where I live because it's so-ooo beautiful and somewhat secluded ... I absolutely love the scenery of open fields to gaze at when travelling the interstate, and shop at lots of stores within my area as well.
I enjoy travelling to Chicago every once in awhile though, just to "unwind" and see the "fast paced busy-ness" that the Windy City always seems to offer.
It's a refreshing change to experience every so often, plus I occasionally visit my friends who are alot closer to Chicago in the Northern suburbs.

I love living in Europe..Belgium is too small though, sometimes suffocatingly so. I'd love to live in Spain.

I dislike where I live, but I am a very restless person in general.
I live in Bournemouth - it's a seaside area right at the south of England on the coast line. It's bizarre, really. These days it seems to consist of mainly pompous rich folk or chavs - i've noticed that so much more recently :/
I suspect at one point in my life, I will settle down and find that one place where I feel comfortable, but i'm unsure where that will be - possible in the northern states, Canada, or Ireland. I'm a bit sick of England, although I won't deny that it's been a wonderful place to grow up.

I've never really felt at home here in Australia, ever since I moved here back in 1996 as a 10 year old little boy. I guess I always viewed it as an extended kind of holiday, even though I knew it wasn't. I've always felt like I'm being called back, and have been homesick terribly the past 3 years especially. Within the next 2 years it'll happen. The catch is I would really like to see the world some more- just to open my eyes etc. London, New York etc etc, I love the big cities.

i recently moved back to the city where i grew up after being away at university for ten years. it's a bizarre feeling, because i know my way around town, but the city's changed, and most of my friends aren't around anymore. it's like being an alien in a very familiar place.

Not particularly. The winters, as livluv said, suck, so for that I'm not fond of it. I'm very close to Detroit, which isn't that great as far as big cities go, and in general I loathe suburbia. I do love my apartment, though. It's very quiet and it's fifteen minutes from where I work.

I love Melbourne and feel at home here, even though right now the winter is in full swing and the weather is quite miserable. But I'm not so terribly keen on the street we currently live on; the traffic is too damn noisy.

I like where I am (northeastern Pennsylvania) well enough. It's funny this subject should come up, actually; I went to see Dave Matthews Band last night, and Howie Day opened for them. He made a remark like, "Wow, look at all the trees back there on the mountain. They're so pretty, they don't even look real. All you guys from around here, you should be happy you're from around here."

True. Despite the mixed success of land reclamation where coal mines were, there's an awful lot of natural beauty very close by. We're tucked in the Pocono Mountains, and so there are good-sized mountains everywhere you look. You don't have to go far for good hiking, skiing, biking, canoeing, et al. if that's your sort of thing. NYC is about 2.5 hours away (theoretically; with traffic it's usually much longer) and Philadelphia is about 2 hours, so we do have the big cities close by as well. Plus, as other folks mentioned, my friends and family are pretty close by, and if Ewen lived here, it would be perfect.

Drawbacks, though: The local political scene sucks--lots of fiercely independent municipalities fighting each other over public works, the "old boys" networks, etc. There's not much cooperation or creativity about economic development, which my area really could use. And the area around where I grew up, instead of attracting a more diverse and organic mix of new businesses, is becoming increasingly strip-mall-ified and everyone thinks that it's progress that we have an Old Navy and a Cracker Barrel.

But overall, I do like it--though I do plan on moving away maybe next year.

^ I live 100 miles south of Pax (so read: the same for the most part).

This is my third "city" in three years. Prior to this location, I lived in a location near MsMofoGone (or so it sounds from her description), and before that I lived in a GREAT city in the Upper Midwest.

My ideal North American location just might be where Fah lives. Unfortunately, being a US citizen, it is not easy to move across the border and work.

I'm sick of where I live. I'm from London, Ontario...a good sized city, smaller than Toronto...but it just sucks. There's absolutely nothing to do here and we have seriously some of the world's snottiest people

Plus I just can't stand snow. I would love to live somewhere in Europe or out west in Vancouver or Calgary

i love where i live. i'm close enough to las vegas that i can see the glow of the lights, but far enough to not be any part of the chaos. it's a tourist-heavy town, with many people visiting our casinos. i live very close to the lake mead national recreation area, which includes lake mead, lake mohave, and parts of the colorado river.

I am very happy where I live. The cost of living is not high, and I am only 50 miles from a big city. I have lived here all my life, and most of my family is here except for my only 2 brothers. The only thing I don't like is the cold winters.

I like where I live too.
I am also in a SW suburb of Chicago, but only about 35 miles from the city. From where I'm at, I can get downtown pretty quick. I'd miss Chicago if I had to move away but it wouldn't keep me from moving away.

I can't imagine ever leaving Michigan. I spent the first 18 years of my life in the Upper Peninsula, right on the Wisconsin border. Then I moved downstate and lived in Saginaw for 5 years. This past April, I moved further downstate. I'm between Ann Arbor and Detroit, in a small, rural township. The peace and charm of the U.P., yet close to bustling areas. I love it!

The UP eh?

Michigan is strange. Like Livluv said, no inbetween. It's hot for a week, then like 24 inches of snow fall. Then of course it warms up, and it's all friggin wet and muddy and AHHH!

See, I'll move soon. Probably to the west coast of Florida or something. Did you hear that before?

Wow, props to you, BC! I honestly think I'd hang myself if I ever had to live in the UP.

I hate Michigan so much I'm going to post about it for a second time
