Help! Where should I move to in the US?!?

Jump to last reply

I'm a 28 year old single professional female looking to move somewhere new in the US. I previously lived in Sydney and absolutely loved it. If it was in the US I would move there in a heart beat. Not ready to make the permanent move I returned home to my small town in NY. Where I live now it's all families and I'm ready for a better social life again. I need some advice on where I should head to.

I'm not a big fan of cold winters, do not like humidity and I love being active outdoors especially the beach. I'm laid back and although I want a city I would like to still have a car. Dog friendly too! I would prefer a larger city as I will be moving alone and want to have a better networking of meeting people.

Places I've been considering are...San Diego, Denver, Santa Barbara, Orange County, San Fran, Charlotte.

I would love to hear any advice people may have. I was originally really set on San Diego but it seems like there are not many jobs there and the cost of living is high. The cost of living in San Fran also seemed very high. It's very expensive where I live now but I just worry about moving somewhere where the cost of living makes it impossible to buy. And if I'm going to make the move I want to at least be somewhere with a good social scene. Very curious to see what you think!

Thanks so much!
