        Philly is actually the cheapest big city in America outside of the South. You can get a full-on 2br townhouse in a "nice" neighborhood for like $1800/mo.

        The downside: Philadelphia is an absolutely filthy concrete RAT MAZE full of feral Black folk. Unlike Chicago, the crime isn't confined to the city center and a handful of outlying neighborhoods; it's everywhere. The people are rude. Finding parking is IMPOSSIBLE. And Philly somehow manages to combine Cleveland's winters with Florida's summers. Every single person you meet has a plan to leave.

    The majority of Fort Collins is unremarkable suburban sprawl; it has to be the people who make it what it is, because everyone who has gone there says the same things about it. So many elitist places have an ugly and sordid side, maybe a homeless camp or a filthy alley, but Fort Collins has perfection without pretension. It's simply a place where 90% of people live a good life. My first vacation trip there last August was mind-blowing; "literal paradise" is the vibe I was picking up for sure.

      "Paradise" has nothing to do with function and everything to do with natural beauty, people call utter shitholes like Thailand and Mexico paradise cause they have pretty waterfalls and beaches. Meanwhile there's tons of towns in the midwest like the one I grew up in that are super functional and high trust, neighbors all help each other, people won't even lock thier doors in, it's practically mayberry but no one would ever call it "paradise" cause it's scenery is dull. Picrel hood river, another paradise.

        It's not just the lack of natural beauty that keeps everyone from moving to Tribune Kansas (population 784) and buying a $60,000 house. It's the fact that Tribune has 3 restaurants, one is a gas station, one is the grill in the bowling alley and the third is bakery that serves frozen pizza and closes every day at 2 pm. The nearest major city is three hours away. They do have a public swimming pool in town and there is a small one room movie theater/performing arts building. They haven't had a murder in 13 years. But before you pack your bags and move to middle America, you might want to drop a pin on Google maps and take a look at it first. It practically gives me a panic attack just looking at photos of main street. honest question, what would you do in this town if you had to live here for the rest of your life?

          I grew up in a town very similar to Tribune, we had 4 mom and pops, a McDonald's and a small movie theater to choose from but my hs years were still the most fun I ever had in life, just riding around on dirt bikes or partying by the lake. I've talked to so many guys that grew up in NYC or LA that "missed out on teen love" and no girls ever talked to them and I was confused as to how do you live in a city of 10 million and weren't able to get even 1 girl interested? Then I realized it's cause the girls had so much choice that it made them extremely picky, girls in my town just wanted a bf. All that to say I'm glad I grew up in my town, I didn't know it at the time but it was the best times of my life. I've since moved away to the biggest city in my state and have to say rizzing up girls at parties in my hometown was infinitely more fun than boring tinder dates in the city.

          Well my idea of paradise would be a high trust society with great natural scenery. They're not mutually exclusive. I'm especially partial to Switzerland personally. There's a reason why it's a big destination for the wealthy.

          Nah, it has everything to do with it. High trust societies are built through bitterly cold harsh winters. This forced the early pioneers to cooperate, the only way to survive such relentless winters was to work together. Idk if Switzerland is high trust, afaik they're stand offish and snobby "keep to themselves" types

            That's not what "high trust" means.
            High trust societies share a common moral consensus surrounding what is right and wrong, such as, if you leave your belongings behind at a restaurant, in a high trust society people will try to return them to you, rather than keep them for themselves.

            I went to school in the suburbs on the east coast. You get all the advantages of being near a lot of stuff to do, but you don't have to deal with the mopey people in the city on a daily basis. New York was like 2 hours, Washington DC was an hour. Baltimore, Annapolis and Philly were all close. We had a ton of good beaches to choose from that were 2 hours away. In the winter, we could get to the Poconos ski resorts in less than 90 minutes. Knowing what I know, I could not fathom a life in a small town. I would be absolutely miserable.

            The city I grew up in had a huge influx of blacks and has a crime problem now that didn't exist when I was a kid. In the early 2000's.nearly all of my close friends left when I did. So it is a bummer that there's no reason to go back and visit.

      If you have been around the US for a while the math depressingly adds up. There are a LOT of towns, and an incredibly tiny minuscule number of them are actually not...too...dysfunctional. Which can be just a near fantasy wish fulfilling dream to most.

      Lots and lots of amazing picturesque little places are actually under the thumb of a really shitty rich group, or insane pozzed retired actor, or is basically a cult town of a mega church, or a local university is actually the real government regardless of who is elected. There is always some shit that makes them a fricking nightmare.

        My rent is $2750/month in Irvine and I'll get a $300 increase if I resign next year. Irvine is great and I love the complex I'm in, so I definitely recommend living here, but you have to make a ludicrous amount of money to buy a place out here. I'm going to be renting forever or I'll have to move further out away from the beach. The condos out here look affordable when you see the sale listings, until you see the $2000/month HOA fees they tack on to your mortgage. If you bought a $250,000 condo in Orange County, you'd have to pay $4,500 a month minimum or mortgage and HOA fees, not including utilities, cable, property taxes, etc etc.

            Temecula has a totally different climate. The summer and early fall there is brutally hot. It's not a bad place to live. The crime is higher than south OC. There obviously aren't as many jobs. If not for the heat in the summer, it would be better. Lake Elsinore is much shittier than Temecula, a little further from the beach, less to do, more Mexicans, run down, lots of property crime.

            Corona is better than Elsinore, probably better than Temecula too. But it's a very boring place. The 91 and the 15 cross there and the traffic is brutal. The weather is hotter than Orange County. The crime is definitely less than in Elsinore. There is literally nothing in Corona to do.

            Downtown Riverside has a serious crime problem. It's a pretty big place. I'm sure there are some neighborhoods that are ok, but I wouldn't even consider it as an option because it's so far from the beach and with all the crime.

            Honestly, for a deal, I'd look at Fullerton around Cal State Fullerton. Brea is even nicer if you can find a deal there. There are a lot of decent apartment complexes because of the school. Rent in that area would be in the $1800 range. Fullerton has a lot more to do, better weather, better food, it's also centrally located. I lived there for a year when I first moved out here. I actually till go up there to occasionally to go bar hopping and eat. The best pizza place in the whole county is Fuoco in Fullerton. You want to be on the east side of harbor blvd and north of the 91 freeway in Fullerton.

            I somehow missed these posts but I'm from Oceanside. I actually really do like it here. It's cleaned up a lot from 15 years ago. You don't see hookers on the street anymore. Gentrification, woo. If you're from here its easier to live here, with something of a support network. Just showing up and trying to find an affordable place to live or a good paying job is hard here.

            Lake Elisinore is one of the worst places in the state. Every time I go there I witness some shit, like a methed out woman fully butt ass naked walking down the middle of the road. Same with El Cajon. I wouldn't live in southern riverside county (Temecula, Menifee, etc). It's boring af white families who buy into "good schools" meme (which covertly means no mexicans) but traffic really sucks to get anywhere, even just driving around Temecula takes forever, and its hot in the summer.

            Norco smells like shit btw. Corona is ok but also, traffic is really bad. Avoid areas around San Bernardino or downtown Riverside. Living in inland California is kind of the worst of both worlds, more expensive than Arizona, less freedom, tons of beaners, hot as balls, and still really far from the beach. Only worth it if you can own a big piece of land.

            My preference would be stay in San Diego, one of the cheaper parts like Escondido if you can't afford better. Yeah there's more mexicans but they're alright.

            If I were to live in OC I'd live in Costa Mesa or Huntington. I like the vibe of that area a lot more than Irvine with its stuck up asians. North OC like Buena Park is actually pretty ghetto.

        Orange County as a whole has very few black people. There are over 3 million people in the county and about 2 percent are black.

        Newport Beach is actually less than 1 percent black and only about 4 percent Hispanics. The only time I've ever seen black people in Newport is on the weekends in the summer. I feel bad for them when they come down. They stick out like a sore thumb. I can't tell you how many times I've seen a group of blacks sitting in handcuffs outside the 7-11 or the liquor store next to the Balboa Pier, or getting pulled over speeding. They literally always get caught.

    Kuala Lumpur and George Town in Malaysia were both great. Not super clean and beautiful, but lively places. Food is great and cheap. Getting to some great nature is easy. Kuala Lumpur has that Asian megacity vibe with colossal towers and a tiny bit grimy, but not third world feeling.

    The only problem is heat. I fricking hate hot weather, but I wasn't even remotely bothered by being drenched in sweat while I was there. Everything was too much fun. Plus moron tourists tend to congregate in Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh and steer clear, so people treat you as if you live there.

    Rome. Everything about it should make me hate it, but the city has so much personality and soul that it's impossible to hate especially as a lover of classical history. Walking down an alley corner and then seeing the Pantheon was one of the craziest experiences I've ever had.

      I'm like with that Athens. I should hate it. It's filled with frick ugly brutalist buildings. There is rubbish all over the place. The traffic is awful and it's polluted. It gets hot as frick and there are wild dogs all over the place. Every single building, including historic buildings like churches, are covered in leftist graffiti. Even so, I love the place. All the weird little bars and bookshops, the history, all of it.

        Rome is actually a nice city. Athens is rough though. Every building in Athens looks like it's about to fall over. I spent 5 days in Athens in September and I walked the shit out of that city. If you cross over that 91 loop, things get sketchy. I saw some things on Keramikou that will haunt me forever. Those "brothels" are straight up human trafficking dungeons.

      I was just in Rome. The only fat people I saw were a few German boomer tourists with beer bellies. On a normal day, You might see 2 or 3 Nigerians standing around the Coliseum or the Parthenon trying to get you to go to a strip club. It's not like Russia where they stop you at the airport and throw you in the Gulag for having a vape pen with THC in it.

    Berchtesgaden. Waking up and seeing the Bavarian Alps first thing every morning was incredible. You can go to any point in the area and no matter which direction you look, you'll always find a breathtaking view. I only stayed for a week but leaving filled me with a profound sadness, that place felt like home

    Bologna, where I currently live, is a pretty good contender. Easier to live in than Rome.

      Boston (and really the whole area) truly is a great place. Been there many times and it has a good vibe to it, walkable in many areas. The only thing bad about it is it is a tad expensive and some of the people you encounter are boorish and overbearing.
