What is the best place to live in the US, in terms of job and quality of life for your family?

I am looking at the best place to live for me and my family in the US. I work for one of the lagest IT companies and, in order to maintain my managerial role at such senior level, I understand I am short listed when it comes to where I should be living, from a careeer perspective. However, I am also looking for a good quality and standard of living for my family (neighborhood, schools, etc.). We currently looking at the Washington DC area, but this may not be the best location to relocate to. I understand this is a very subjective topic, but I am looking for some guidelines on where (or what) I should be looking, in order to base my opinion upon, before I can make my decision. I thank you in advance for your kind attention and precious advise.

Arizona or Florida. The two cities I recommend are Tempe or Phoenix in Arizona or Palm Coast in Florida. Also check out Ormond Beach in Florida. No snow. Quality of life very high. Income midde in terms of national average. Housing costs mid-range. Few bad neighborhoods.

Manchester, New Hampshire was rated the #1 city to live in the country. Manchester is 1 hour north of Boston, MA. I live in this area and it is an excellent area for schools, quality of life and (compared to Washington DC) affordable housing.
