My husband is a musician and we need to be in an area that appreciates original acoustic music.
We want to be in or near mountains and forests.
We want to be within a couple of hours of a big city (health food stores, ballet lessons, etc) and close to a small town that we love, where everybody knows everybody. We want availability of local food, raw milk, etc.
We want a not too long or harsh winter, and somewhere where food grows easily. We are coming from Florida and don't want the hot, hot summers.
We like to be among artistic people. We like homeschoolers. We have 3 kids ages 7, 2,and 1.
Do you have any ideas for us, general region, or specific town? We are considering North Carolina, Northern California, Flagstaff AZ...but there are so many places we haven't been and don't even know we should be considering!
