I've actually had a lot of conversations lately with friends about this very thing. A group of us have never really left our home area in Michigan. Honestly, Michigan does have a lot to offer. Four real seasons, summer and winter activities, big cities and small towns, and so much more. However, we all want to experience new things and places and it doesn't surprise me that all the places we have talked about moving to are in the top 10 above. Obviously, those states have a lot to offer residents.
