Best Places To Live in US!

We know that everyone here loves jeepin' around in the forests, mud pits, and mountains. Unfortunately, some of us live in big cities, industrial areas, or just overall pavement ridden places. We need some nature love!

So where are your favorite places to live in the US that are jeep-friendly or overall just awesome places to live?

Anywhere in central texas is pretty grim unless you own a bunch of land. NM is very nice.

In no particular order..

Anywhere on the western half of Colorado that isn't on fire. Ouray, Teluride, among other small towns in the San Juan Mts. You pay for what you get living there for sure. Alot of great towns surounding Denver that would be cool. South West Idaho is also on the list for me. As to the east coast there is one spot and it's a much different life style then anythng you will get in idaho or colorado. That is daytona beach shores florida. It's just something else to say the least living there. Bordem doesn't exist. Wheeling wise, A bunch of options. Most around a hour or so away. There is also a decent network of overland trails that goes through central florida if you want to spend some time off the beaten path.

Very true. I love living in Phoenix because you are central to so much.

I didn’t have a Jeep when I lived there… but Kodiak Alaska has some awesome trails that would test any skill level and some pretty good scenery too! Just watch out for Yogi Bear

my jeep and I have been around the country and my top three
1. Alaska- no other state like it great wheeling, camping, hunting just hop on a two track and wheel it for days!!
Colorado- just about the same better maintained wheeling but less freedom to many hippies.

I really do like Michigan yea thats right I just love northern Michigan not much hardcore wheeling but the beaches make up for that.

Pittsburgh, PA!!!

Here is a couple of pics taken Friday of Mount Washington (it overlooks the city)

Sorry about the quality, my cell doesn't do well at night.

In the second picture, that is PNC Park in the front of my Jeep with all the lights.

I have to say, I have lived all over the US...as for wheelin' though I think Washington has the biggest variety. From desert to mountains, to straight up nasty stuck up to your mirrors mud, there is something for everyone here. After living in Alaska, and knowing the remoteness of it, WA just edges it out for a small degree of: "help is a CB call away". Besides that, your Jeep gets washed every other day here (rain). Saves money on the car-wash.

California
Everything is within 2 hours of each other. I could be on the coast and decide to go to the mountains for some rock crawling: 2 hours. From there I want a desert scene where I can go to the dunes: 2 hours. Back to the coast: 2 hours. Also no inspections on our vehicles, just pass smog and go. And great weather year round.

when it comes to Jeeps, Wisconsin isn't great. But for anything else outdoors, it is absolutely amazing

So where are your favorite places to live in the US that are jeep-friendly or overall just awesome places to live?
Fayetteville, WV (New River Gorge area)- Everyone is on their own clock. It's much slower-paced and people just don't seem to be in a hurry. Not to mention, the scenery is gorgeous.

Niagara Falls, Canada- I've been there twice and didn't want to leave. The people were very friendly and life just seemed relaxed. Do I have to mention the area was gorgeous?

Seattle, WA- We visited Seattle (Whidbey Island) last year and life was just so much slower. People were patient, friendly, and I'm not sure what it was, but there was just some sort of strange appeal to Seattle.

I'm not sure of the place, but where the "Tail of the Dragon" is located in North Carolina/Tennessee. While there isn't anything there, the scenery is gorgeous. Given its VERY remote location, it would get annoying to drive 45 minutes just for gas, though. If you wanna get away from EVERYTHING, it's the place to go!



I like "chilled" areas. Everyone seems to be so impatient these days and it's just nice to slow down from time to time.
