Best area to live in the USA?
I'm currently living in Asia, and when we return to the US we don't necessarily want to move back to the Houston area where we left from and where I grew up. My criteria include: good bicycle commuting, job market/schools (I put these together because I'm a 6-12 teacher), sense of community, local history, stuff to do and see on day trips by bike or car, availability of medical services/hospitals. BTW, I will not live in California.
What are your recommendations and why?
