Northern Alabama (Madison, Huntsville, Monrovia, Harvest) just across from Tennessee. Weather is nice, like Florida without the humidity. Occasional tornados. Settled by a bunch of German rocket scientists who mysteriously appeared after WWII and got us to the moon, so plenty of educated folks, restaurants, Broadway shows, colleges for continuing ed. Probably 300,000 people in the city and burbs. Low crime. Property taxes run around $500/yr on a $200K house, and $200K will buy a nice 4 bedroom 3 bathroom on half an acre.

Warm weather, low cost of living, low crime, culture, fine dining.
Pollen is bad in the springtime, though.
