For me, I really like coastal towns. In terms of a real life setting maybe New London CT.

Somewhere in southern California I love the atmosphere there I hate NY I feel like I was born in the wrong state it's so dark and gloaming here. I hate winter so much in NY yeah the snow is pretty at first then it becomes a pain in the ass. I'll take sunny weather all the time over it with beaches and palm trees plus legal herb.
For me, I need to be surrounded by technology such as an urban areas. I live in big cities in all my life and I actually like to live in a nice town, coastal towns sounds nice and as long as I can get a good Wi-Fi area spots is all I really need, then I'm down for coastal towns.
I'm serious. Streets would be much narrower and cozier without having to accommodate those damn vehicles. The air would be cleaner, the city would quieter, it would be easier to get around, everything would be much closer because you wouldn't have all these parking lots, roads and all the business that service cars. There would just be narrow roads for public transportation systems, which would be far more complex. A few alleys for taxis. More trees with all the added space. Cars suck. They're annoying, ugly, loud, always in the way... You have some nerve complaining about cyclists in the other thread.
I'm a big fan of the part of the world I live in (BC Canada), i'd just like to escape the city and move to a smaller town (but still big enough to have most amenities I'd need).
work makes that difficult, maybe one day when I retire or can find a way to work remotely
Realistically what I need is to live in the middle of a big city. With close proximity to work, restaurants, stores etc. Just like I live right now in central Stockholm. There are lots of German and French cities I could consider moving to, it's all about that lifestyle. I get stressed by long commutes, I have done that throughout my late upbringing when I started attending high school up until I got my first job after college. I really don't want to do that again.
But if I wouldn't have to work I can do without with a lot of those things. Then I would prefer to live in a cold mountain town where I can snowboard every day. Towns like Åre, Hemsedal or why not Chamonix, Flims or St. Anton ?
Really depends on what the person is looking for, stage of life, and how the city or area has evolved. Younger people have been moving into the cities revitalizing a lot of downtown warehouse or factory districts that were left long ago. Others, are having kids and can't realistically make it with a child in a 1-bedroom unit. Others just live where they can afford and have been displaced by new money.
