My grandmother, God grant her peace, was fond of saying, "there are no happy places, only happy people."

My two cents.

The New Athos monastery near Sukhumi (Akua), Abkhazia. Very beautiful place. My parents used to vacation there when I was a kid. Incredible impressions: warm sea, blue mountain peaks, sunshine, luscious greenery, peace. However, because of the recent war between Russia and Georgia, I am afraid it's not all that peaceful today...

I have to plug my city, Omaha, Nebraska.  It was voted one of the best cities to live in the U.S., has a great economy, a very large Air Force base (Offutt AFB), is a clean and nice city, and there are 7 Orthodox Churches here with about 3 more within 40 minutes drive.  I live in a very small town (200 people) about 45 minutes from Omaha, but I make the drive everyday because I work at the Air Force base.  I also go to church in Omaha, so I drive in 6 days a week.  Housing is super cheap compared to the rest of the country.  I bought a 4 bedroom house on 5 acres for less than you would pay for a renting a one bedroom apartment for two years in Southern Cal. (for real).  We have great homeschooling groups.  I have four children, and there are about 50 kids in our Church, St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church in Omaha.  My son is an altar boy, along with about 5 others that work the altar boy shifts.  Our schools are better than the rest of the country (I live across the river in Iowa, and we do have the best schools, if you don't homeschool).  Get out of Cali before it falls into the water!  Lol. God bless you in your decision.  I realize you may have moved a long time ago, but had to plug our good city.
