I am from the Northeast, currently live in VA and will be moving to the UK when I get married. I lived there for several years which is how I met my British fiance. I think no matter where you live the grass is always going to be greener. As much I like the increased vacation and maternity time I’ll get when I move to the UK, I grew up imagining I’d have a big spacious American house and that’s just not going to happen in the UK. The houses there are much smaller and housing costs are astronomical at the moment. And while the US might have only been around for a few hundred years, I think North America itself has just as much history as the UK (Sorry, this isn’t directed at you. I have a cousin who moved to the UK around the same time as I did and she’s always going on about how the US “doesn’t have culture”, so it’s a pet peeve of mine. Every country in the world has A culture.)

Can I ask what you don’t like about the Northeast? I’m from Boston which is very liberal but there are definitely parts of the northeast that are mixed.  New Hampshire was the first place I thought of based on your description. And I like to describe my area of Massachusetts as politically liberal, but definitely more conservative/traditional on a social level.

I say Colorado, Washington state, or Oregon. Colorado for sure though. Distinct seasons, plenty of snow, and BEAUTIFUL mountains. And Washington and Oregon are also gorgeous but don’t snow as much as Colorado.

socalgirl1689:  and after a month of it raining everyday and grey skies and it getting dark about 4pm….I really like the idea of living in California too!
