In terms of Canada, Vancouver Island is probably the nicest place to live. If it were the the States I'd probably pick Hawaii.

I'm missing Texas. No state income tax, a lower sales tax, cheaper housing, better economy and less depressing people (a lot of these in Bakersfield). Cant wait to get back.

Why are you "lol"ing at my opinion and not the 5000 other people who said Cali? Because I dont base my taste in region on just their economy? (which was good until recently). You are missing texas because its cheaper to live there? I guess you value different things in a region than most people do. You would LOVE South America, I hear housing is really cheap there.

Bakersfield is the dirty poo covered asshole of California, so dont let that taint your perception. Never been to Long beach, Venice beach or OC, in fact I havent spent much time in Socal in general except Santa Barbara and San Diego, which are both like heaven on earth if you can afford them. Norcal > Socal too.

edit: If you want to know why I love cali you should go to Yosemite, the American River, the Sierras in general, the Redwood forests of Norcal, and dont go to all the tourist destinations like Venice beach.

Yeah don't get me wrong it's a real cool area. Like I said if you are into the outdoors or survivalism It's one of the best places to be. Cost of living is cheap up there. Definitely worth owning a gun though because there as previously mentioned theres some methed out redneck f*cktards.

If you want a really liveable city, with a good mix of city life and nature I'd definitly reccomend Pittsburgh.
It's really diverse and areas like the Southside and Strip District are exquisite plus close to downtown Pittsburgh.
And we are the 'City of Champions' :)
