Im happy where I live in Michigan, but I wouldn't re-locate here because of the economy and taxes. My favorite state that Ive been to is Texas but I dont know what its like to live there though.

+1 on this....Unless you are in academics and can get a tenured teaching job at UofM or MSU or one of the other Universities, where you are gaurenteed a decently paying job in a place that won't close, there's no point in moving here...

Having said that, the state is beautiful, there's plenty of places to hunt and fish...to ski and snowmobile in the winter...and there is a favorable Brew Pub climate, with at least one in every major city. There are several microbreweries with Natl Recognition (like Bell's and Jolly Pumpkin.)

And there's a lot of homebrew shops and even liquor stores that sell homebrewing supplies...So yeah, if you are already here, Michigan roacks!!!

for people to give you better advise you should tell us what you do for a living, jobs can be very location dependent. after all you can order homebrew supplies online and take trips to go hunting/fishing, but not if you cant afford to pay for it.

I had to laugh when I saw this thread. I started a thread a few months ago about moving to the area you want to leave. BTW, I vote for somewhere in the Pacific NW or New England...

It's nice to have midwest supplies and northern brewer within driving distance.

I grew up right next door there in Olmsted county, definitely a good area to move to. Alot of jobs, schooling, low crime rates, etc. Rochester has just boomed in the last few years, It's a shock to see how everything has changed in such little time.
