Currently I'm in Austin Texas. Which I like, for the most part, except I hate the summers.
I'm looking for a place that has -
-Mild weather (no harsh freezing winters, no blistering hot summers) - (how much sunny days and cloudy days doesn't matter that much)
-A very liberal/democratic city
-Near (within an hour or two driving distance) some kind of nature/parks, lakes/rivers,
-Plenty of stuff to do like museums, zoos, libraries, etc nearby (within an hour or two)
-Low cost of living
-Near a large city, but not in it. (within 2 hours drive)
-Most people are educated
-Relatively good air/water quality
-Relatively low crime
-A pretty city (nice scenery, etc) would be a plus too.
If you don't know any places that fit ALL of these, at least fit the first five would be helpful.
Added: Because of the stupid ban on gay marriage that I am ashamed to say that passed in Texas, it makes me want to get away from here and its stupidity and bigots even more.
