    I live on “the other side of the state” from where I grew up.  My husband was born in NC, has lived in NY and MI and Taiwan, and we live near Detroit.

    I grew up in Louisiana and I live in Tennessee now. 

    They are very different but also similiar enough to not make me as homesick as I probably could be!

    Do people still have hometowns? I don’t even know what i would consider my hometown.

    I live like 10 minutes from my hometown.

    I really would like to move to another state, somewhere on one of the coasts, but it would be really hard to be away from all my family.

    Someday hopefully!

    @Treeline:  Your hometown is where you grew up.

    I live about 10 minutes from my hometown. It’s funny because it’s a fairly small town, but where I live has about 5x the population and is more of a “city.”

    I live about 100 miles from where I grew up. I grew up in southern MN and now live in the Minneapolis/St Paul area of MN

    In my hometown I was close to Canada, in my current town , I’m closer to Cuba!

    Very far, and very different!

    I grew up in NJ, and now I live in Chicago. It’s too far for me in my opinion–I would love to be closer to my family.  I actually haven’t lived in my hometown for 8 years now, and I have at least 1 more year out here. Then I plan to move back to my “home region” I suppose?  We want to end up in DC or NYC.

    I’m only about 20 minutes from my hometown. I wouldn’t exactly say that it’s “paradise” but I’m happy being so close to my family and friends.

    I voted for the first option.  Although “paradise” might be pushing it a little bit, I am very happy here!  As much as I’d love to live in a bigger city, I just don’t think it’s worth the down sides right now (more expensive housing, less room for our two dogs, etc.).

    I live in the same city/town that I did growing up. That is mostly because I still live with my parents. When I move out, I’ll be about 10 minutes from my hometown. I can’t get away.

    Someday we’ll pack up and move far away; at least, that’s my plan! 😉
