Not my city. But the rest is spot on I'd say.


For me, I liked some of Spain's coastal area, but I don't speak the language, I keep coming back to NZ as the ideal place for me if I should decide to permanently leave my city.

I like my city, New York. The music, film and cuisine options are incredible. The seasons aren't extreme--no bitter cold winters like Boston, Chicago or any Canadian city east of Vancouver. And crime is relatively low for a large city despite what some chicken littles who don't live here may say.

London?

The biggest developer in Houston, and one of the biggest in the world, is a guy named Gerald Hines. I heard him speak about urban planning one time and he said the greatest city in the world is London. I've never been there but I'm sure Hines knows what he's talking about.



Good call. I was there last month, maybe that's why I listed all those qualities... But I think many places in Europe would fit, and Brexit is a problem. Also, it doesn't have to be a big city. Oh, and weather in London is quite moderste.

I've been to Veracruz and yeah, it's pretty hot and humid there. The climate in the valley of Mexico is pretty nice, not too hot, not too cold. Not a bad place to live and not surprising that great civilizations started there.

Here's what I like:

Active arts community/subculture. - Fringe fEstival, city of trainspotting, scottish hippies

International mix of people, a crossroads. - Mostly scots, but some ethnics

Ancient history. - Skara Brae and many medieval castles

Visually compelling, beauty to the eye. - Been to Arthurs seat lately

Nonconformity. - Most left wing part of Scotland

Decent standard of living. - Much more well off than Glasgow

Spooky atmosphere. - Edinburgh is full of ghosts and has a creepy underground city wth ghosts of 17th and 18th century prostitutes and rogues.

Dramatic weather. - Mostly cool, but not a snowy wasteland and cloudy most of the time

No guns.- Well the whole developed world has that except the USA.

Anyone know of such a place?

Scotland and I would say Edinburgh, it has history, art, charm and the Fringe festival has more hippies and hippy drifters, pinkos and socialist free floaters than you can shake a stick at.

.

I would avoid Glasgow as its large and full or rough and very working class "Hey Jimmy" types. Just watch a few episodes of Taggart to get the picture. Plus Scotland has a very cloudy climate (1300 hours of sun a year and virtually none in the winter), it gets dark at 4pm in winter and even in summer the temperature will not get above 65 - 70.

.

A good second place for that list is of course New Zealand - which has all of it, except the Ancient history as the Maoris left very little physical evidence of their occupation (Well they did only arrive in 1300 and were a stone age level group). As for haunted, the closest we get is a 1880s house with pointed arch windows that some old widow died in, or a rundown 1910s bungalow with a lovelorn ghost in it. Our history only goes back to the 1840s and there is few buildings that predate about 1860 (When the population took off with the gold rush here).

.

Plus Dunedin has the authentic Scotland feel, down to all the hippies, dreary weather and 19th century imitative Scottish gothic buildings. Plus thanks to our National government wanting cheap slave labour, our country is very diverse, full of Asians, Islanders and Muslims along with a few Whites and Maoris left over. We hate guns and encourage greenies and left wing pinkos here so you will probably love it, plus in the north it never gets above 80 in the summer.

Every. Thing. I mean, the weather is the draw for the most part, that hasn't changed much but everything else has. But you already live where the climate doesn't drastically change. Maybe the cost of living is lower here by comparison but it's still pretty high. It's lost that small town feel in most places even though it still has that look in others, the feel has changed drastically.


I would like to take a trip to NO, but I'm afraid it'll look exactly like our GasLamp district blocks and blocks of temporary restruants and souvnier shops. Every city is starting to look exactly alike.

I live in San Diego. It's a big city. If you don't like big cities, you won't enjoy living here. There are a lot of nice suburbs though, but it's expensive here. Hawaii even more so, and you are surrounded by water. lol

.

I've lived in the Northeast, the Southeast and currently west coast (SoCal). Compared to the weather in most of the U.S., San Diego is considered to be very mild year-round. I could never live in the southwest desert; too dry for me.

.

I do miss the warm weather in South Florida, I won't lie. I don't mind the humidity and the rainy summer month's. If you don't like humid tropical climates, you won't like Florida either, or most of the south, for that matter, LOL. lol

Born and raised here in SD, for a long time it maintained an interesting balance of being a big city with a small town feel. Lots of beauty here for sure. Not many places I'd trade SD for. But it does seem to have lost it's uniqueness. Very rarely do I hear new residence say anything further than the weather. It's every tourist city USA, with moderate year round weather at this point.


It's that change issue I guess.

I like SD for the most part. Sometimes it's a bit too dry for me. I'm from the east coast, so I am used to more humid/rainy weather. There is a lot to do here, that is for sure. Some area's are a bit too touristy for me, so I stay away. It's hard for me to get used to the beaches here; the water is cold and the beaches get so crowded in the summertime and it's hard to find a parking spot, which deters me from going to the beach, except to go for a walk and watch the sunset. The terrain and coastline is very picturesque for sure.

Hiya.
Yeah you kind of had me confused, I thought you used to live in SD. Yeah, the places that are now all touristy were old stomping/play grounds so not liking that at all. But the fact I can see the ocean without being close to it is what I love the most and can't tear myself away from. I've always grown up looking at the ocean, not sure how many places you can do that, without actually living near the ocean.
At this point in my life I know that snow and learning how to deal with it isn't for me, heat and humitity I'm not crazy about but I know how to deal with it.

On YouTube you can see how the city has changed over the decades. Even from the 90s there are big differences.
