10. Roswell would be well worth looking into

While there are cold snaps during the winter, it often is quite livable. Even Las Cruces, the southernmost city, is temperate in winter. The altitude is far lower, for one thing. Trees there start to leaf out in February. The scenery is also stunning.

The artsy vibe is all over the state. After all, I moved out here to feed my fiber habit, finding wool a lot cheaper if I bought it right off the sheep's back and processed it and spun it myself. It's a visual artist's paradise, with painters, sculptors, weavers, jewelers and fine woodworkers all over the place.

While Santa Fe and Taos are the big gallery towns, is gallery shopping something you'd want to do every day?

And both places are cold and snowy in winter, not that big a break from Chicago.
