Where, in your opinion, is the best place to live?

I don't think there's enough choices there for me (or the vast majority of people in the world) to make an accurate, informed, and heartfelt answer.

west Virginia is absolutely beautiful. It's where a lot of my family grew around. Shenandoah Valley is breathtaking in many different spots.

I've only been to one of these - Idaho's beautiful, and if you like hiking or skiing it looks pretty awesome.

I can't honestly say my home Province of Alberta - though geographically very close to Idaho, is an IDEAL place to live. The weather notoriously sucks, our strongly petroleum-based economy is as precarious and capricious as any other fossil-fuel-driven-revenue base, and we have one of the worst political climates in Canada, alongside Saskatchewan, Quebec, and arguably Newfoundland and Labrador. But, all said, it's better than the vast majority of places in the world today...

My family once took an Amtrak train through WV (an odd way to travel) and I instantly fell in love with the geography of it. The rolling mountains that give way to tiny villages was beyond beautiful. The only part of VA I've truly been in was northern VA, and the natural geography doesn't compare.

They were one in the same before the Civil War...

 

Hell, Kentucky was part of "west Virginia" before 1792...

I'm curious, which states have you been to? Actually, I can create a poll.

I've only been to California. I visited the Greater Los Angeles Area on vacation in 1998.

What did you think of LA?

It was the very epitomy of commercialism in an urban centre, and huge and visible contrast between great wealth and great poverty - often within spitting distance of each other, the smog was visible to the naked eye, and it was atrocious urban planning incarnate. But, every actual person I met there was very nice, and I got it very fortunate with the infamous "L.A. Freeway experience."  Also, the 12-storey building limit, and the fact that, at the time, only three buildings were up to the full 12-storeys, was a bit notable, as even in Edmonton, skyscrapers and highrises taller than that are significantly more common.
