Is there such a place?

Jump to last reply

So, I am leaving the Army in about a year, and trying to get my plans together. I grew up mostly in MD and upstate NY. But all of my extended family has always lived in florida, and I naturally drifted there for college.

Given my background, I am in love with warm&cold weather and beach&mountains. I want it all at the same location, all the time. I have always considered myself a mid-atlantic-er. I have been tossing around places like Baltimore, Charlotte, and Jacksonville (fl). They all have things I like, but are all also missing something. Example: Charlotte is ~2hrs from beach and mountains, but too southern for me (I am not a NASCAR/PBR kinda guy).

Also, I am in the healthcare admin field, which I know has solid hubs all over the US, so not too worried about that part.

Is there a somewhere in the US anyone knows about that covers everything I need in a place???
