pgr Posted December 12, 2011 Share Posted December 12, 2011 We are thinking of moving, and are looking for the ideal (for us) place to finally settle down. I will preface the list of "wants" with a disclaimer :D - obviously, I realize that no place is going to have it all and etc.... But it's fun to dream, and we're starting with a list of ideals, that may be totally unrealistic as a whole. I will appreciate all the suggestions I can get as well. We lived in upstate NY- climate and topography were ideal (job market was not). We currently live near Pittsburgh - cultural advantages are great, topography not so much... So... What city or state comes the closest to this: Snowy winters, not necessarily numbingly cold, Reasonable (not too too hot and muggy) summers, Ideally, we'd like 5-10 acres of somewhat private land, but not all on a 45 degree angle in the mountains... We like green - trees, forests etc. And lakes or rivers are nice as well. :) Must be near a major medical facility for DH's job. Would love fairly easy access to museums, good libraries, etc. Family is in WV and NC, so we'd hope to stay in the Northeast or Midwest. Friendly HS laws would be a huge plus (does it get any worse than NY or PA? Though I've not yet had to report yet- our eldest is 6). Please post your ideas/suggestions! Thank you! :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
