      I'd stay in Washington state for two reasons.  I like the climate and there is no state income tax.  Although we have what is certainly one of the highest sales taxes in the nation, that would be of little consequence to me with a major lottery win, since I'd be spending relatively little compared to my gifts and donations to charity.

            That is a tough one.

            All things considered, I MIGHT goto Isle of Man.  Many people who have never been to the Isle of Man are not sure exactly where it is! The answer is that it lies in the Irish Sea, between England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, less than 60 miles west of the Lancashire coastline, and it is easy to get to thanks to excellent air and sea services.

            All in all it seems like a good tax haven, though others may not agree.

            But then after awhile, I'd get bored and come back!

            Maybe 6 months there, until the fever died down.

              That is a tough question,  so I guess I would lease or buy one of those newer RV busses and travel the country in search of the "perfect place to live".  I might never find it but what an adventure that would be!

                I don't know if I would win a major jackpot, put I can certainly make it seem that way with the numebers game.

                I've never been to Hawaii, I would love to live there, and Atlanta, and Florida, and New York, Parts of Michigan, Parts of California, Japan...I would like to live in many different places for several months or years and if I wanted to, then go some place else.

                Apparently, I luv to travel, so it would not be easy for me to settle down anywhere!

                    It's not where you live, it's how you live.  With a big hit the where is any where thats easy.

                    You go to heaven for the weather, you go to hell for the company.

                    Just a joke, lot of great location.  Good Luck

                          I would purchase 2 homes, 1 in LA and 1 in Texas. Then I would split my time between the two locations each year. Aaaahhh, the joys of lotto dreaming!Sun Smiley

                              I'd get a house right on the river and do nothing but go catfishing every day.
