Hello everyone, ever since we got our GSD, Safir, who is now 2 yrs old, we started thinking how nice it would be to live somewhere at the country, in the mountains, somewhere where we can have some land and Safir can enjoy the outdoors. He loves it outside, but living in South Florida, most of the year it's so hot, we can't do anything like walk, play outside. When it does get a little cooler( usually for just a few days) he loves it, and we take long walks (2-3 mi/day). We are originally from Romania, and grew up in an area surrounded by hills and mountains with lakes, and had all 4 seasons there. So even though we initially came here for the weather, we now really miss the cooler, more dry air, and we are so, so tired of the heat!!! Lately when we take a vacation, we go to the mountain, rent a cabin, and stay there for a week. Safir always comes with us, so we drive there. We all love it. So far we went to Burnsville, North Carolina and Blue Ridge area, Georgia, and this summer we might go to Tennessee.
Anyway, we want to move in a few years, when I graduate and get my licence. So we are doing some research for our future home

Any suggestions. We don't know much of US, and we thought maybe you guys can tell us where it would be nice to live if we want a nice piece of land, beautiful, quite, more rural area, and we don't want to have winter non-stop either (don't want to go from one extreme to another).
Maybe tell me if you are happy where you live, and what you like about it most.

Thank you!

If you don't want one extreme to another, do NOT come to Michigan! We're looking to relocate south...

Tennessee is the first place i thought of too. My best friend moved there years ago after living all over the US and she loves it there. It is a beautiful state.

South Carolina seems nice to me as far as the weather goes. My grandparents lived there and it never got too cold. Wasn't crazy hot except a little in mid summer. Cooler evenings too.

Ohio SUCKS for weather. We have two seasons. HOT and COLD. It seems like Spring and Fall don't exist in this state.

Good Luck!

I've got a friend who lives in north Georgia, Cartersville, which is a nice area. Another friend lives in south Tennessee, Soddy Daisy, about 30 miles or so outside of Chattanooga. Both towns are in the mountains, and both friends claim the weather is moderate in the winter (but not as warm as Florida) and cooler in the summer than what you find in Florida.

Tennessee is very pretty-I love the mountains, but I couldn't live there= too many rednecks. North GA is nice to live in. You have a lot of northern people who relocated to the suburbs of Atlanta- (and then there are the Europeans like me)- who brought higher values to the south. I like the climate- not too cold in the winter (we do get a couple days of frost) and the worst month of the year is August, bc of the high humidity. I do miss the snow in the winter- esp. for the kids-, but I don't miss the icy roads when I have to drive around.

I did really love the north of Georgia. Beautiful, at least the Blue Ridge area that we've seen.

We don't really want a big city....we're kinda running away from that. We want, small town, or maybe outside of the city...quite, in the middle of nature type of thing.
