  • Tell me about the area in which you live.

    My wife and I are looking to move to a new place. We generally want to stay out of heavily populated areas, but not so rural that you have to drive long distances just to do daily errands. Can you tell me about where you live and what you like or dislike about it?

    Eastern PA is perfect for that...Bucks county area. Lot of wide open areas, but only 25 mi outside Philly and only 1.5 hrs from New York.

    Also Central Jersey, about 15-20 miles east of Trenton, there are areas exactly how you describe.

        If you like hot summers and bitter ass cold winters.. Kansas, definitely Kansas.

        Isn't jack shit to do, the weather isn't nice enough for anything in particular - and no one cares enough to bring us anything good..

        On the bright side, I live in Wichita.. approx 400k people? Get anywhere in the city in about 20-25 mins. Never much traffic. People are nice.

        but damn do I hate the weather.

            Southern New Jersey....I guess it's better than North Jersey, but it still sucks. I wish I lived out by Skip or even further out West.....I like mountains and streams and women who don't smoke all the time and don't act like Snookie....lol

              I live in the Denver metro, but my wife is making a push to move to the Springs.

              I love Colorado; there aren't many areas of the state I wouldn't live in.
              You're perfect, yes it's true. But without me...you're only you.

                I lived by you for like 16-17 years man and you can't compare it to north jersey. SJ is a wasteland. Every young kid you meet is either trash or think they are a gangsta (while living in cherryhill or hamonton or whatever). The south jersey/philly area is the most racist area I've been to on the east coast...NO, NOT EVERYONE but the.percentage is higher than any other place I've been to on the coast. Remember steel, I ain't saying everyone...there are good people there but a ton of trash. The whole area has a complex in regards to north jersey/NY.
                I'm in central jersey rt now and hate that just as much, some different reasons though. I just want to move to Florida already.... Well sandiego is first choice but... I need to hit the mega for that.

                Peace

                          I live in a small town 20 or so miles from Memphis in TN... Cheap cost of living, lots of jobs close by (memphis/collierville/germantown/cordova/millington/etc)... Weather is pretty good as well. No state income tax but a high state sales tax so that kind of offsets (or, turns out better if you buy a lot of shit online from places like Amazon)

                            I disagree....You couldn't pay me to live in North Jersey, with all the traffic and smoke stacks of industrial Jersey...South has lots of farms and woods and imo is much better for raising kids and such....yes, there are alot of wanna be's in SJ, but there are quite a few up North as well Dun....remember, all those kids go to NYC on a regular basis....SJ for the most part is decent neighborhoods and VERY good school systems...In fact, where we live the schools have been ranked in the top 10 consistently....there is trash everywhere, and I guess depending on exactly WHERE you live, there could be more than other areas....Again, this is an opinion based argument. If you like city type living, then I guess North is ok....I have 3 kids, so I know I look at things differently than guys with none, but for raising a family, imo North can't hold a candle to South, but I hate it here anyway....lol. Taxes are too high and the East coast is just too hard nosed for me....
