Where's a good place to go live a simple life?
I've finally paid off all of my college debt, and am looking to start over somewhere. I'm in my early 30s, single, and have no children; basically, I have no responsibilities outside of paying rent wherever I go, and feeding myself.

So, where is a good place to go live a laid back, simple life? I have no desire to live lavishly or in excess. I also have no desire to live in a city (Been there, done that).

I've lived in NY my entire life and haven't really traveled much, so I really have no idea where would be a good place to try. Anyone got some good ideas? Thanks in advance.

Finland or Sweden. Affordable countryside land price, freedom to go into forests (they are government owned), lakes to go fishing, good infrastructure, working basic services like health care and public transport, even in countryside.

A small island in the South Pacific called American Samoa.

Fa'Samoa is the way here. laid back, tropical, and cheap American Samoa is in desperate need of smart educated capable people especially Teachers.
Farewell American Samoa, the "last stop of today and just a stones throw from tomorrow"and with that said and done I stood up, standing at the end of the day and walked boldly onward into tomorrow and to the given day of rest.

Re: Where's a good place to go live a simple life?
Look for areas that are:

1) 2000ft or more above sea-level (esp. if near a coastline),
2) 100 miles or more away from 50,000+ population centers
3) Not downwind from industrial production facilities of any kind (including agriculture / farming),
4) Ideally without cell coverage

...these are the places where peaceful living may still be possible.

Thanks again for all the replies.

The more rural/ mountainous areas here in Colorado are just fantastic - but you have to be a bit tough. Winter is no joke, and look carefully for land that will grow anything sustainable.

However, make sure you have ample supply of lib-tard repellent should you need to venture out into the bigger cities.

Re: Where's a good place to go live a simple life?
Canada, aka smalltown Canada.

Northern Ontario
Newfoundland
Northern manitoba or sakatchewan

In Ontario, Niagara, extremely cheap real estate, fun towm with tourists from all over the world. I am going there when I get back from overseas.

northern ontario is cheap and beautiful, but by north I mean north of sudbury. Great outdoors life

newfoundland, cheap because of economy, but good people and good quality of life.

others = cheap and far removed from world, lonely unless you find someone to shack up with and live the dream.

Estonia is a good option, NATO & EU country, low cost of living, no immigrants, remote enough to have safety of problems in this world. Government is minimal and does not cause problems for you. Flat rate tax. Right to own your own gun for self defence (!).
