I'm already in the place I've always wanted to be.  Goodyear, Arizona!  It is located in the West Valley of Phoenix Metro.  Why do I love it?  It's close to the I-10 freeway which means, close to downtown Phoenix, Scottsdale, San Diego, Santa Monica, even Rocky Point Mexico.  Also, being based in the West Valley helps me avoid city traffic while still getting to enjoy the attributes of big city life.  Best news of all...amazing weather for the majority of the year.  Okay, the Summer can be pretty hot, but I just hop on the I-17 and head up to gorgeous Sedona or Flagstaff to cool off.

Hey Doyle-maybe you just need a nice long vacation! I had that feeling and moved to an island in the Caribbean which lasted all of 2 years! Then I tried Mexico for 5 years and I am right back where I started

Believe it or not, I am asking myself that exact same question now, Doyle!  I think every place has pros and cons.  Generally speaking, I love where I live (except for winter), so I've been going south for a month or two.  That seems to work for now.

I would highly recommend Newport Beach, CA., Costa Mesa, CA., or Anaheim, CA.  All of these are in Orange County, which is still part of the LA metro, but minus some craziness. Takes about 45 mins on the 405 Freeway to reach LA. Newport Beach is an upscale beachy city with incredible views and weather. Costa Mesa and Anaheim are ultra family friendly. As far as LA goes, Studio City is great but really pricey. Santa Monica is the bees knees though. Decent prices (as far as SoCal is concerned) and minutes from everything, pedestrian friendly too!

Well, of course, Folsom, CA. And I know a great Realtor who can find you the right home.  But seriously, Folsom is really a hidden gem in NorCal. I moved here from Orange County and I see license plates all the time from OC and wonder, how did they hear about Folsom? Why is everyone moving here from SoCal?
