Not hard to answer.

You can only LOOK at mountains. And usually boring.

Beaches can be used. Boating, swimming, fishing, etc.

Living in Rock Hill, SC we have the best of everything.  It is 3hrs to the beach, 2hrs to the mountains and near a big city but not in it.  We only occassionally get a dusting of snow, hurricanes are almost no worry this far inland and we have wonderful weather.

I would live in the mountains. I enjoy the peace and solitude that I find there.

Somewhere in between? I love the water, but I also love the desert AND the mountains. The one absolute condition for me is being near a university or artists' hub, somewhere with cultural options -- and not just high, but also low!

 

Right now, I'm in NYC, where I was born, bred (& corrupted) and where I've spent two-thirds of my life (having lived in Chicago, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and spent some time in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Paris). But I need to get out soon. As someone once said: Live in New York City, but leave before it makes you hard. Live in California, but leave before it makes you soft. After so many years of big city living, I think I need some softening, so plan to move out west in the next couple of years!

I would live near the beach; the ocean air and the smell of the ocean salts ;sounds good to me, living in the
midwest west I'm ready for the ocean.

Hands down .... Mountains! There's something about the mountains ... A peaceful, tranquil feeling comes over me when there which tells me that's where I'm suppose to be! 😊

This is the eternal discussion in my house. I am definitely a mountain person, my wife is a beach person. It makes planning vacations interesting.
