Has He Considered the South of France?
Kos is looking for a new place to live. He's not picky
:Lots of sun. At least 60% of the year.
Mild winters. No more than a couple of weeks below freezing
Lots of culture. Great non-chain restaurants, theater, local arts community, etc.
Near hub airport. I travel a lot. The more direct flights I can take to places around the country, the better my life.
Near hilly/mountainous terrain.
Away from hurricane paths.
Easy access to outdoor activities -- hiking, mountain and road biking, canoing, etc.
Some additional bonus considerations:
Bearable summers. I hate 100 degree weather. Even the "dry heat" kind.
Good public transportation.
Ethnically and raciall (sic) diverse.
Phoenix would qualify without the summers; San Diego is probably the closest climate-wise, but the public transportation and hub airport probably rules it out.
