Where would you live?

OK, you just won the lottery and now money, and so of course a job, are no longer an issue. Where will you choose to live in the US and also what would be your non-US choice?

We did a similar drill like this before under Dan's thread (Top ten places) but this time you have to pick one place in the US and one outside of the US.

My choices:
US = Portland, OR
Non-US = Vancouver, Canada

Incidentally, my international choice has become far less exotic since 9-11...

Ok - taking family out of the equation:

Domestic: Somewhere in the Southern Blue Ridge Mountains - beautiful, great weather, I'd buy a whole mountain with a lake.

Abroad: Costa Rica - tons of kayaking, canoeing and hiking and dirt cheap, plus, in San Jose, it's pretty much 70 degrees all year round. sigh.

In the US: Asheville, NC -- mild winters, mountain scenery and a cosmopolitan atmosphere in a pocket sized town. (I would have considered Prescott, AZ for similar reasons before the recent wildfires emphasized the water problems in the west.)

Overseas: Sienna, Italy or the Tuscan countryside. Similar reasons to the above choice plus the easy going Italian attitude.

The US choice is a simple one - a farm somewhere near Cross Plains just west of Madison, Wisconsin. As for abroad, well, that's tough.... Maybe southern France, or closer to home, Vancouver, BC.

Tough choice

I'd have to say Scottdale for US and then perhaps the lake country in Northern Italy for non-US.
