You may or may not know this -I’ve lived all over the US. Best quality of life for me was Minneapolis. Great music scene, lots of arts and culture, very diverse population, not too expensive. The only downside was the weather: too hot and mosquito-y in Summer, and the rest of the year is winter.
I ended up settling down in Portland Oregon, been here 13 years. I don’t recommend it. Only staying because the climate suits my wife. It’s expensive, homogenous, and overtaken by millionaire property developers. But there is one huge upside: close proximity to a wide range of beautiful outdoors areas. Mountains, rivers, woods; even in the center of town you’re only a few minutes away from a nature trail.
Dylan recorded his famous ' Blood on the Tracks ' in the dead of winter in Minneapolis .
