Moving to the US. But where?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are looking to move to the U.S. for a year. Work and visas are not an issue, but where to live is. After some busy years in big European cities, we want to move out of any metropole and rather be in a suburb or a smaller town for a year of slow(er) pace and recreation. We're in our 30's, no kids, can work from home and are looking to rent a small detached house.

We've got a few criterias:
- Safe 24/7 and low crime rate
- Not too expensive for a 1-2 bedroom house (app. 1800$/month)
- Needs to be east of Missouri, preferable max. 2 hour drive from sea/lake
- Not too cold (min. 40ºF) and snowy during winter
- Not too hot (max. 90ºF (app.)) and humid during summer
- Including, warming community (we're non-religious)
- Maximum 2 hour drive from a larger city (200.000 ++)
- Possibility of get a hold of good, organic (local) whole food

... we've considered North- and South-Carolina, as well as Georgia, but crime rating and the fact that some people say some communities are not very including and open to "foreigners"/non-southern, different religions and diversity is troubling us. We consider our self as forward thinking, accepting and open-minded people and would like to be in a community with (more or less) the same values. Other places we've considered are Louisiana, West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland. But we're a bit lost, hence this post.

So ... Anyone with suggestions, good tips or word of advise? :)

Thanks!
