  1. I live in the southeast, Matthews NC in Union County, since 1979 , to be exact. Can visit the Beach’s here, or the Smokey Mountains. My results said the southeast. So it was absolutely correct ! I was reared in Clearwater Florida. I was happy there, do miss the beach so close by back then. I am also happy in NC. I am here to stay. :))

  2. Mine said I should live in the southeast.
    I was raised in CT & lived there until I was in my 20’s. I loved going to the shore and visiting lighthouses. Fall was my favorite, Spring was lovely too but the winters were too depressing, the sky was gray & gloomy from November to April. So I moved to Miami Beach lived there for 4 years, just 6 blocks from the beach and went there almost every day. I rode my bike everywhere and loved all the tropical plants & trees. However, the heat and humidity was too much for me and I missed the change of seasons. So I moved to CO and have been here for over 20 years. There’s lots to do here I loved going to the mountains, lakes & rivers. I often went to CA on business so I bought a small second home there. I took sailing classes which I just loved and joined a lighthouse club. I’d spend about 4 months in CA and then go back to CO.
    Now I long for the ocean and realize that my passion is sailing, ferry boats, lighthouses and the beach. So I thought what am I doing in a land-locked state? I’ve decided that I want to go back to the east coast but don’t want to live where it’s too hot & humid or too cold and gloomy. I’m thinking maybe NC or SC. but I’m having trouble deciding where to go.
    Does anyone have a suggestion?

  3. Live north mid south east. To far, from the activities I love. Working on changing this … This years weather has been very pickled cool to chilly, freezing all in one week to a day of wonderful 70’s. Truth be known I am an old salty from very south southeast. Miss the day trips to beaches. Midwest would send me even more further away from the oceans I love. Pacific is out of my income base. The definition given was dead on the nail.

  4. Results are in…Northeast it is, which is where I live. Originally from midwest region. I have spent time in the West so I would not have been surprised if that was the result.

  5. Exactly right. I live in the Southeast and that is where the survey says I would like to live and I do love where I live!

  6. Live in Colorado (since 73)…thinking New Mexico a better climate for me in my “senior years”…(Arizona too xtreme for me; Utah, too John Smith for me).

  7. I live in the NORTHEAST but I got the SOUTHWEST…… I’m not a huge fan of the heat but I guess dry heat IS better than humid….. Southern California would suit me just fine with its temperate sunny climate. But I would miss the 4 seasons…

  8. Hmmm…I live on the West Coast and do love it here…but most of my family is on the Outer Banks. Love it there too!!! I got Southeast

  9. I live in the south west near the ocean. I would never live in the south east, which is where you said I should live, I love where I live. We have heat and air-conditioning and a lovely home.

  10. I live in the southeast would never live in southwest. A/C takes care of humidity. At least we have trees.

  11. Mine said I should live in the Northeast which is where I live. I love it because I love the changes in the seasons.

  12. Mine was Southwestern , I live in the southeast now and hate the heat! The humidity is terrible! I’m not really sure where my ideal place to live would be ?

  13. My result was Southeast, I actually live in one of the southern northeast states! I’m from the southernmost city of the north, and the northernmost city of the south; the Philadelphia metropolitan region. Called that because of its location on the Mason-Dixon line.

  14. I got the Midwest. I’m better suited for either the East Coast or the West Coast. I’m a beach-loving, surfer girl. 😁
