    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    This might narrow things down a little.
    What are the best warmest towns? Warm as in weather.

    I would change your "warm" to the best snow and Mt. Bike trails. Try Teluride

    I hear NJ is warm this time of year and it'll only cost you $12 to get over the bridge or tunnel.

    What's wrong with New York?

    In the forum there, you wrote: "I realize there are many options other than bike riding(not that I bike ride during the winter), during the winter, but anyone else get a bit bored or down during the winter here in the NYC area?
    I don't like skiing or snowboarding, don't like the cold, and warm weather can't get here soon enough."

    It get's cold here in CO. Skiing and boarding are a pretty big deal.

    You may want to look at Arizona or Nevada.

    mmmm... love the sarcasm... You walked into a snake pit.

    Define 'good communities'? What is your criteria?

    Serious answer: impossible to answer until you tell us what "raising a family" means. Does the cost of living matter? Are good schools important? Close to a major airport important? Do you have to earn a living there too? Does a town of 5000 sound big, medium, tiny? How about a town of 100,000?
