    Would consider these.....

    • Santa Barbara California
      [​IMG]
      A collection of beaches, mountain views and resorts help make Santa Barbara a popular tourist destination. Those same amenities, great schools, a highly ranked health-care scene and strong economy make living in this California city feel like a dream come true. Great farm-to-table restaurants, unique shopping experiences, plenty of outdoor recreation options and fantastic weather keep Santa Barbara residents on the go. See where Santa Barbara ranked on last year's list.

    • Boulder Colorado
      [​IMG]
      Known as one of the best cities for liberals, Boulder spoils its 100,300 residents with pristine natural surroundings, a strong farm-to-table restaurant scene, and dynamic arts and cultural attractions. Each season brings more things to do in Boulder. Many of the city’s highly active residents plan their days around hikes, rock climbing, mountain biking and fishing. Schools in Boulder rank high, which has helped the city appear on the Top 100 since 2014.

    • Palo Alto California
      [​IMG]
      Those fortunate enough to live in Palo Alto enjoy a city that surpasses most quality of life standards. A long list of amenities starts with a 31-mile dark fiber ring around the city that provides ultra high-speed Internet. Residents enjoy many things to do in Palo Alto, like playing in impressively designed parks and open spaces and dining in unique restaurants. Palo Alto's residents are politically active, socially minded and strongly support the city's highly rated schools. It’s no wonder Palo Alto has held such a high ranking when it comes to measuring livability. You can read why Palo Alto has been a Top 100 Best Place to Live three years and counting.

    I get to Bismarck a few times a year. OK, but windy and cold as hell.

    Bonus: What's the State Tree of North Dakota?

    These lists are so fucking stupid.

    Yeah, I would imagine a suburban town in California with a median home price of $2.4M would be an okay place to live. :rolleyes:

    I think that is an outdated way of thinking. Twenty years ago it might've been true--you move to the sticks and then you eventually become cut off from the world. Nowadays though, long as you got a fast internet hookup, I don't think it would be that bad.

    North Dakota. A lot of dirt farmers turned into millionaires when oil was found under their land.

    I am with you. I live close to Boulder. I am glad I do not live there either. I feel Boulder has a very elitist attitude for being so liberal.
