I lived there. Let me keep it brief and real for you. I lived in NYC, DC, Orlando, Atlanta and Miami. Miami was far and away the most hideous living experience I ever had.

So what was it? The sun? The humidity? The people? The food?

Someone didn't speak English to them and they cried.

It's not Atlanta I worry about it's Georgia. I have concerns about raising kids in a socially conservative state. Otherwise I would be considering Austin, TX.

Have you checked out housing prices in Portland OR? I think a lot of people are voting for it without considering the fact that your best schools won't be in the neighborhoods that meet your housing budget. The suburbs might work for you though.

I would recommend Ft. Collins, Co or Boulder, CO because they check all the boxes of your wish list. My gf wanted me to move to Colorado because she loves the outdoorsy culture and the socially liberal culture but we have to stay in the South for now because of my job. Someday soon I will make out west to Colorado.

Mostly it was the in your face rudeness that I would encounter on a daily basis.

I don't encounter that, probably because I don't expect others to speak English but rather communicate with them in Spanish.

Miami is not an English speaking city, and forcing the opposite will just yield you to have problems. Like some spanish speaker coming to your home and expecting you to speak spanish.

Try living in Orange County, CA. It takes rudeness to a level I never thought possible.
