Friendly towns/cities/states?

My husband and I are both from Ohio and live in Columbus. In a year, we plan to start searching very seriously for a new home/new jobs and we'd like to consider moving out of state. My major dissatisfaction with Columbus, OH is that isn't very pretty, it's sort of blah really and also I have been told that the people are really not that friendly---and I do not have a hard time believing that! I would like to know from anyone who is a traveler or who has lived in many different areas...where have you met the nicest, most upbeat/fun, welcoming personalities? Culture, scenery and places to eat/shop/entertainment is also important.

Greenville, South Carolina. We have southern hospitality but Greenville is very nice (no rednecks haha). They have coffee shops, clothing stores, and a VERY nice park on the Ready River! There downtown area is very fun and relaxing. Greenville is kind of an artsy place so there art festivals and plays a lot

Well... if you're looking for somewhere outside of the USA, Yorkshire in England is lovely. Completely separate culture from the rest of the UK, nicest people you could EVER meet with some real beautiful scenery. Google "Yorkshire dales" or just Yorkshire countryside.
