Default Where Should I Live?

So I have a final interview for this potential job I want and as required, you have to put down your most and least preferred cities/states you would want to work in. Being in Florida my whole life, my opinion of each pretty much comes from what I've heard in the media so that can't be reliable. So if you've lived in or know what each city is like, care to give your opinion?

Chicago:

Boston:

San Antonio:

Colorado (Denver/Colorado Springs):

Baltimore:

San Fran:

Phoenix:

Charlotte:

Dallas:

Houston:

Kansas City:

There's 39 in all but these are what I'm most interested in. I'm leaning towards Denver right now because I like the mountains and I hear Colorado Springs is nice. But I really have no idea.

Out of those listed, I'd go Chicago.... as long as you think you can handle a cold winter.

Of those listed I would prolly take the fresh air of Colorado...I aways picture that as my retirement state for some reason...

Dallas might give you the best cost of living of all those listed though...but I am not that familar with a few of them...

San Fran is nice. Being from California myself I'm biased obviously, but when I check the weather and see that half the country is in a snowstorm, I'm more appreciative of the weather out here lol. Lots to do in that town, good nightlife and the bay is cool. Haven't been there too many times but I've only heard good things from some cousins who go to school there. Chicago is awesome too, but I'm not sure how you would like the winters in some of those cold towns.

I can handle the cold pretty well and living in a big city would be a huge change from suburban life. Really the only big city I'm considering. I don't think I could handle New York.

Ya Colorado seems really nice. I've been there once and just loved the scenery. I think it would be pretty peaceful living there.

Chicago: Never been. Heard good things though. There's some really bad parts of the cities but if you can suck up the coldness it'd probably be worth while.

Boston: I loved Boston while I was there. It's probably the cleanest city I've ever been in.

Baltimore: Go here if you want to hate your life.

San Fran: Sexy choice.

Charlotte: Eh... Not good, not bad, IMO.

Haha I know what you mean. Same thing down here in Florida. It's like 68 right now, beautiful weather.

San Fran is high up on my list but I feel like the cost of living would be really high. Still I hear it's great culturally and living in California has always been interesting to me. The current state of California though kinda scares me. I admit I don't know much about it it but I know being in loads of debt isn't good lol.

Wait what?

My definition of dirty must not be so bad if you think Boston is clean. That city has been in constant reconstruction for 50 years. It's awful.

Maybe it was just where I was at. I'm not sure. I visited a friend up in Providence and we went to Boston for dinner and walked around. Where ever I was was very clean and really nice.

The three I've been to, plus two you should toss out.

Haha, ya. I didn't want to rule out anything just from what I've heard. But if Baltimore really is that bad then I'll scratch it off.

For Kansas City, I really know nothing about it. Figured it would be cool to get some insight before I rule it out too.

I had no idea there was so much construction going in Boston. That's a pretty big turn-off.

The construction there is not a big deal, more just a running joke. Don't let that be the thing to dter you from the city
