I live in the United States and lately I've been thinking I would love to live down in Florida.I live in NJ now.I hate winter time and in Florida there's some sun in the winter,alot more than Jersey.Winter causes me a great deal of depression and it would feel nice to be in Florida where you can get the sunlight in the winter.Where would you like to live and why?

If you think the winters are bad in NJ you should see what they are like in PA where I am! I always wanted to go somewhere warmer and without winter also. I always liked South Carolina, it is usually nice there all year (this year I think the whole country was cold). I also like all the historical stuff down there. I went there on vacation a few times and I really liked it. I wouldn't want to be further south because the bugs are too big. My boyfriend wanted to move to Arizona, but I thought it was too dusty. I would rather go south than west.

I've been to South Carolina,that's a really nice state.I wouldn't mind living there.The thing about Florida that I gave some considration is they have cockroaches there.That would freak me out.I kind of change my mind,but would not mind South Carolina.

I visited a friend in Florida once and the roaches were huge and plentiful. All the bugs were big. I have been to Florida since and haven't seen bugs, but that one occasion sticks with me, that is why I prefer a little higher up.

One of the drawbacks about living in Florida would be the Hurricanes, I live in Pennsylvania and also hate the winter and cold, I was thinking about moving to Tennessee, where they still do have winter, but not quite as harsh as it is here.

Sounds like Hong Kong has such beautiful weather there.I've seen what it looks like online and it looks like a beautiful place.

We used to think we would like Australia but after a few hot summers, I am not so sure. With global warming ,it might not be such a hospitable climate. I like the idea of Edinburgh but only because it has an old old city underneath it and it was all blocked off during the plague. Sometimes they let people go down and have a look at the old passageways and rooms. That is very exciting. Not that I have ever been lucky enough to go down there but they have shown it on TV. I also like the idea of living on the island of Bouganville (don't know the real spelling) as they are self sufficient in everything which I really admire.

As other responders have said, there are pros and cons to living in Florida. It would depend on which area you lived in. I spent a few years in the northern part, in Jacksonville. It was ok but nothing to write home about. I also spent some time in Dade county, Miami area. Didn't like that much. The Keys are absolutely gorgeous but weather is an issue. I've lived in various places throughout the States: New York, NY,; Kansas City, MO; Los Angeles, CA; Jacksonville, NC; San Diego, CA; Dallas, TX; Chicago, IL; Des Moines, IA; Ten Sleep, WY; to name a few. They all had their pluses and minuses. Almost 10 years ago I moved to a suburb of Buenos Aires, Argentina and I can honestly say this is the best place I've ever lived. Cost of living is decent. The air is clean. There are the 4 seasons but no snow. People here are some of the nicest I've ever encountered. If I had to pick an area in the U.S....hmmm.....I might give someplace in Oregon a shot and I used to dream about retiring to some sleepy little lakeside town in Maine. For now, I'm enjoying where I'm at.

I would like to live in here in my mother land.But a little richer to be able to see the world every now and then and come back to my cozy nest. I know that I cannot be a first class citizen anywhere except my own country.

I live in Texas and while the winters are pretty nice, the summers are miserable The WORST day in a NJ summer is a good summer day in Texas...

I like Chongqing. You know the city in south-west china. You will ask why i like the city not Hongkong Florida Newyork but chongqing. The reason is easy. because i have never been to the city out of china. i guess if i will visit the city you lived i must be like it.

I would like to live in Hong kong. Hong kong's one of my favorite places in the world. it is a small territory yet packed with exciting treats for everybody.. i love the gigantic malls (pacific place, landmark), ocean park, hongkong park, discovery bay, authentic chinese restaurants, buddhist temples and many more.. i also love the transportation system.. it's very organized.. the buses are clean.. the taxi drivers are honest.. there's no traffic, perfect! what i love most is the weather particularly during the holidays.

I am from the philippines but if I have a choice for a place better to live that the Philippines, It's Japan. This country has a well diciplined people and the environment is Good. According to some of my friends, they have a good government, food and advancement on medicine. They have the longes lifespan of human in the world due to the technologies they have in all fields. They also know how to give importance to our nature. They also have the one of the best dishes in the world. :)

each area has its pluses and drawbacks too. if you were in florida, you would get hurricanes and i hear their humidity in the summer is a killer! i would still like to live in Canada but live near the ocean or the beach (even in my city).

I have dreamed of living in a tropic paradise, but that is too unrealistic. I would love to live in a wilderness area, but have a cabin with electricity. When I was about 7 years old, I dreamed about living in Australia and riding kangaroos. Now that I have grown older, I have learned that Australia isn't filled with kangaroos, they are dangerous, and that's just improbable. Living on a beach isn't that ideal for me, because I don't like the ocean that much. Right now I have a pond, or you could call it a lake, in my backyard and I enjoy spending afternoons in my backyard.

You don't want to live in Florida. While it is a beautiful state, they have cockroaches 3" long and they fly! They call them "palmetto bugs" to be polite and the palmetto bushes are crawling with them. The spiders are huge because the damp climate encourages their growth. Summer is hot and damp, like being wrapped in a wet flannel blanket in an oven and winters are chilly and damp. I lived there for a couple of years, one year in West Palm Beach and one year up north in Jacksonville. Sand is everywhere, as are mosquitoes, fleas and sand fleas. I'm sure that the state has many good points but I never found any aside from the people being very nice. I like it just fine here in Ohio. I don't hate the winter but this last one was horrible, a real record-breaker with the snow. I can finally put my car in my garage now that the snow has melted! I love the four seasons. I would not want to live anywhere else!

I live in England and the climate here is too cool for my liking. Spring and autumn are fine. Summer can be warm. Winter is always too cold for me to enjoy. I would love to live in a tropical location like in Belize. I visited that lovely little English speaking country in 2006. I loved the palm fringed beaches and Mayan ruins there. I found the local people really friendly. I would be happy to live in Australia or New Zealand. They are my second and third favorite countries. Both have a points system and I don't think I would be able to get my disabled son in to either countries. He has spina bifida and hydrocephalus. They would imagine he would be a drain to their health schemes. A location like Queensland, Australia or Northland, New Zealand would be perfect places to live. I would enjoy more outdoor leisure time and a country to live in that is less crowded than England.

hell0 JAva! well, there are few places that I want to spend the rest of my life. the first place is Peru- I really like this country and hope someday I will visit it- i know much about it, about the culture and the people there and I really like the way of life of the people there. The second country is Switzerland- I like this country because of the nature and the high standard of life, because the people there have no worries about that, how will the earn the money for the food tomorrow or how to have enough to care for their families!
