It is the mountains. We moved from the prairies to mountains and it is amazing. I also love it that people here enjoy being outside walking, biking, skiing-they are very active at any age (we see many people above 70 yrs downhill skiing here), and people want to be here-it is a choice for many.

We're right by the water so I can be at the beach in 5 minutes. We're also in a unique spot that is only 45 minutes from Washington, DC and Virginia or 1.5 hours from Baltimore.

I love that our Zoo, History, Science and Art museums are all free. If you ever come to St Louis, skip the Arch and go to Forest Park!

We have 2 acres of land right on a big private pond/lake. (Lake is about 20 acres big) We also have a 2 story detached 2 car garage with a home gym on the second floor of it. We live right on the edge of town but are considered COUNTY where we live so we only pay County taxes (a lot cheaper than city taxes) And our neighbors have property too so none of us are right next to or on top of each other. We live in a town that is right on the Mississippi River and it has lots of trees and has clean air. The town is big enough to have a mall and a Walmart but small enough not to be too big. (Population 25k) It's a historic town with pre-Civil war Antebellum homes all through out the town and has a National Military Park 2 blocks from my house.

That we live an hour from Disneyland. Warm weather most of the time. Hate the high gas prices and higher cost of living.

It's where my heart is: my mother, step-mama, sister, sister's family, DH, DH's family, nieces, nephew, kids - they're all here.
That - and we have all 4 seasons! They're all noticeable, we have hot, humid summers (don't like) and cold, wet and snowy winters (love them), and great falls and springs. Rarely have draughts, earthquakes are mild (4 on the Richter), no tropical storms or hurricanes. Our only bad weather is tornadoes. They don't happen often.

Nothing, I hate it here! Wish hubby could get a good job somewhere else preferably someplace warm and that has things you can do. There is nothing in Omaha, no outdoor activities, no beach, no good mueseums or culture. The only thing to do is to go to bars and that is not our thing. Everything is so spread out that you have to drive everywhere, I have to drive to go to the store and drive to take the kids to school.

I love being 30 minutes from WDW nice area, and my drive to work is less than 10 miles from my house. Plus no snow (which was one of the major deciding factors when I moved down here.)

Where I live is ok I guess, it's close to my 2 brothers and their families and only 45 minutes from where dd will be attending college so that's nice. If dd moves after she graduates college I would move too. I can always come back to visit the brothers (with busy lives we don't see each other much anyway, I only see my oldest nephew about once a year as it is and we live about 10 minutes apart)

I'm not crazy about where I live, but we have the 4 seasons and it is close to major cities like Boston, NYC and Montreal.

Summers. The beaches along the Atlantic Ocean on Long Island are beautiful, pre-SuperStorm Sandy that is. Living here in the summer is spectacular and the only thing I like about being here
