I find it very interesting that most of the places on my list are out West.  I've never been to that area of the country, but have always wanted to.  Not many Southern states at all.  And, no Northern states. 

Interesting?!  Out of the 24, I've only heard of 11.  Guess I should get to visiting & discovering some of the places that apparently I've been missing out on, huh?

If you play along, leave me a comment so I can head over and check out your list of places to live. 

Have a great weekend!
