Southern California. It's an amazing place to live. I was about half way between LA and San Diego, and I was right on the Pacific. But I was also just 30 minutes away from the desert. It's a different way of life than other parts of the country, too. The pace is much more relaxed, people's attitudes are different. The weather is great, too, especially if you're near the coast. In the winter we're usually in the mid-60's, spring in the 70's and 80's, then 80's all summer. The desert is warmer. In the summer it's above 100 every day there, and sometimes it even breaks 100 in the spring. I loved it, and I will be moving back there within the next few years.
