    AF ladies: what's your favorite base?

    Advertisements
    DB is being ordered to Korea next year, and he's hoping to be able to choose where we want to go when he gets done with his year there (we plan on getting married then).

    So far our top choices include Travis AFB in California and McChord AFB in Washington. We're both originally from Southern California, so we love the state. But I don't want to get stuck on a crappy base. I'm also hoping to be near a bigger city so I will have an easier time finding a graphic design job.

    So, any suggestions? What bases have been your favorite?

    TIA!

    Anywhere overseas! Ramstein has been my absolute favourite but I love Lakenheath and Aviano too. I have heard Lajes is wicked nice also. I have never personally been there but DH has and he would love to go back.

    Don't go there!!!!! I'm hoping to go there!!

    Right now avoid, Hill, F.E. Warren, Minot, and Barksdale.

    I would love to go to Colorado Springs. Beautiful base and lots to do with both Denver and Colorado Springs. Right in the middle of the mountains.

    I don't know much about the West coast bases because we can only go to very few bases. The one in Spokane looks nice. My DH just visited there and said they have a great recycling program. Don't know much else.

    Ramstein, where we are now, is my absolute favorite. It's great because there are so many other bases in the area so you can always find what you need. Plus, it's in Europe, so on weekends you can go just about anywhere you want for pretty cheap.

    My ex is at Vandenberg, right near Santa Barbara, but I don't know too much about the base or whether it's a good one.

    That's what I was going to say. I have never been on the actual base, but the area around it is nice. Everyone I have talked to that has been stationed there has loved it. It was on our dream sheet, but we didn't get it.
    I also love the bases in Co. Springs. It's an expensive area to live, but no more so than CA. It's beautiful there.

    The base here in Cheyenne has awesome looking housing. Other than that I don't much about it.
