I've been lucky enough to live in a number of places, since we moved from England to the USA when I was young, and I later became a Navy wife, which has meant picking up and moving every 3 years or so on the average. We've lived in Connecticut, Scotland, Virginia, Guam, San Diego, Hawaii, and Georgia, bouncing back and forth between Hawaii and Connecticut a few times. Now we are settled back in Connecticut for what will be my husband's final tour, and we plan to retire here. It's the state I've lived in the longest overall, and I find it very comfortable. Love having real seasons again! Plus, my parents are here, and daughter & son in law just bought a house about 15 minutes away.
Like Traveler, I don't do well with heat, and that was the main reason we didn't actually end up staying where we were for our previous tour in Southern Georgia, because we ended up really loving the community, and found some places we really enjoyed going into Jacksonville and St Augustine. But Summer which starts in March and doesn't even think about leaving until November just wasn't going to work.
I loved Hawaii, as well, but again, the lack of seasons was just something which I couldn't get used to, even though we spent a total of almost 7 years there (3 different tours, including one back-to-back).
Scotland was absolutely wonderful.
We've pretty much enjoyed everywhere we have lived, which has made for a really interesting time. I love being a Navy wife.
