I'm currently a SPU at NPTU Chas and I'm not sure where I would like to go afterward (although I'm sure that information is entirely inconsequential)

Everyone here seems experienced (see: old ;))  Maybe I could have some suggestions
girls are pretty

If you can, go to a trident!  Either Kings Bay or Bangor are excellent locations!  Try not to go to a fast boat if you can.  Fast boat life sucks, esp if you are married.  Fast boats are cramped, you hotrack when you are a junior guy, and your schedule is written in mud.  Tridents are bigger, way better quality of life, and if you are married, you can plan your life!  SSN stands for Saturdays, Sundays, and Nights.  You will also find that once you do your sea tour and shore tour and you try to rotate back to sea, there are NO TRIDENT billets open!!!!!  There is a big reason for this.  Four years later, you will say to yourself, "Damn ET1 was right!  Tridents ARE better than fast boats!!!"

I am a surface guy.

However, I have been stationed  in WA State and Norfolk.

I have only heard about Groton, and I grew up in Georgia.

Kings Bay:  Oppressive Heat.  If you like hot and muggy, good fit.

Norfolk:  Navy USA.  However, if you have a family, VA can be a good place.  I liked Williamsburg...tried to go there as much as possible.  Don't fear the Peninsula, it's a good thing.

Washington:  Weather is temperate.  Never really gets too cold or too hot.  Traffic is negligible.  Schools are good.  Air is clean.  Oh, and it rains.  The normal color for Oct-May is gray.  Close proximity to cold weather sports.  Easy car/ferry trip to Seattle, a great city.  I am a fan of WA, and will go there next hands down.

Kings Bay is the only one in the South!
(In Norfolk the cornbread is sweet and the tea ain't!)
