So far, so good. The positives are outweighing the negatives.

Good:
Cost of living! I moved here from just outside NYC, so of course it's relative. My mortgage for a 4 bed/2.5 bath is less than my rent for a 1/1.
General friendliness. Even the people at the DMV were friendly.
Food. I'm surprised at how good and diverse the food is. I even found a decent ramen restaurant!

Bad:
Bugs. *shudder*
Traffic and traffic patterns. How the middle lane of a 3 lane road becomes a left turn only lane, I'll never understand, and the lights here are ridiculous.
General gun culture. I'm not a fan.


Where did you move from and why?

Just outside NYC. My company relocated us.

Do you have any general questions about this area?

My husband and I are in desperate need of a weekend getaway. Where should we go? Something spa-like or generally relaxing would be fabulous.
Also, best state/national parks for camping? My favorite way to relax in the summer is to pack up the tent and just go somewhere my cell phone won't work.
Do you use the traffic app?

Moved back into the city proper for the second time and love it! Shorter commute, better access to basic necessities, comparable demographics, and sense of community have all contributed to me loving this experience. I prefer being within the city proper versus the suburbs and already beginning the process to search for property to purchase within the city.
