We are a close-knit family of four originally from Long Island, NY. We moved to Austin, TX 3 years ago; we've had awesome experiences here (making wonderful friends and adventuring around Central Texas) but we feel we need to get back to the East Coast. We want our desired area to have good schools, low crime, great medical, family fun things to do, a good quality of life, employment opportunities for my husband and preferably somewhere with like-minded people (like Northeasteners).

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

Most people from the north east find themselves in South Florida. Its tough to tell you where you should be looking without a few answers. What field is you husband in? How long is he willing to commute? Do you prefer water or inland? It's hard to give you a good idea of where you should live without knowing that.

As previously mentioned SE Florida would be your best option. Check out areas like the Fort Lauderdale suburbs of Weston, Davie, Cooper City, Parkland and Boca Raton.

Uh, Florida is not the East Coast. I know, a lot of people like to pretend that everywhere they go is the East Coast, but it's not.

For the most part that's correct but SE Florida is a special exception. It very much has a Northeast US vibe (NY/NJ primarily).
