Where would you move?

I'm not really sure where to post this. My family may have to move for work, but we have quite a bit of say. We have to be in the Western half of the country. Texas to California or anywhere in between. I'm not sure if we have to stay in the southern half as well or not. That's just how they put it during the talk today.

So if you had the following values and had to choose somewher to go where would you go and why?

My Dh's co has to have an office there (Yeah I know you can't answer that without knowing who he works for. Just assume it needs to be a major metroplex)

I value temperate/moderate climates

Very AP/natural living oriented

Somewhat conservative

Reasonsable cost of living

Family friendly

Decent homebirth laws or birthing centers

Decent homeschool laws

Waldorf schools in the area.

So now...Where does my bubble exsist?

I love, love, love Portland OR.
It has all the things on your list but might not be conservative enough for you. Cheaper cost of living than Seattle but not as affordable as many cities..
I would say Oregon or Washington but you'll have to be further from the main metro areas for affordable housing. However, you probably won't have Waldorf schools in the outlaying areas. There is a newer Waldorf school on Whidbey Island though in Washington and it would have more affordable housing since you have to ferry to mainland.
And an AP friendly community may be contradictory to a conservative one. It would be a unique place for sure to be both but hey-worth a try!
