Where would you move in the United States? - Page 2

post #16 of 113
I would stay away from Califorina for a few years and see if this state gets its head back.

I would live in Las Vegas. Kind of hellish to live in IMO (its great on vacation), but with California Income Taxes at 10% and no income tax in NV, you save $15-20k a year...and its a SHORT flight to many places like LA, SF, etc...driving to LA and back is like 5 hours...not bad at all to do if you want, get a hotel. you use the money you save in taxes and property costs to travel more. Housing prices are ridiculously low...you can get a sweet pad with a pool for what a condo in LA or SF would cost. There is a good party/nightlife scene. World-class chefs/restaurants/shopping. Hawt Girls (tourists) every weekend looking for one night stands. Honestly you would get sick of living there day-to-day..its kind of like living in Flyoverville once you get off the strip, but flying anywhere is doable with an extra $20k plus what you save in real estate costs.

Stay in O.C./San Diego or move to NYC.

Sounds like you're a consultant who spends the week on assignment at clients' locations. If that's the case, the most important question is what do you like to do on weekends - since that's the only time you'll spend in your "home" town. That should help you narrow down choices pretty quick. Do you like to party til the morning or do you like to hike or ski, or do you like to eat out and go to the theater, etc.. ?

You haven't mentioned any hobbies or interests, so it is hard to know what sort of lifestyle you are looking for. If it were me in your situation, I'd look at Austin TX, Boulder CO or the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe.

Also, are you free to spend your weekend wherever or do you have to take it home? Since you are unattached, you could ski one weekend, go windsurfing the next, and then sit at home for the third.

If you plan to do that, either find somewhere with a low cost of living where you can get a decent 1BR for little $$ since you won't be there often or find yourself a roommate and go for something like chicago for the convenient flights to client and travel locations (and the roommate will make sure the place doesn't fall apart when you don't come home for 2-3 weeks)

Why no DC? Are you currently living there and are sick of it?

You are strangely convincing. Do you work in sales?

My dream job is federal appeals court judge with chambers in Maui. Not right now, however -- it's pretty difficult to meet other young professionals there.
