Hi everyone, my names Rita.
Im a 24 year old mother of a 3 year old. And I currently work in a 5 star fine dineing restaurant as the Pastry Chef.
My fiancée is 27 and is a cook at chain restaurant.
Neither of us win that much money, but we are saving up littlle by little.
We currently live in the island of Puerto Rico, where most of our family live. But we do have quite a few uncles and auntes spread accross the states.
----------------
TO THE POINT
----------------
We have been researching of states to move to, but its very hard. My Dad said he would help as long as I don't move to thses areas:
1) New York City
2) Brooklyn
3) Coney Island
4) Basically the general area of New York
5) San Francisco

He says its so expensive.

Please help me out.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please tell me of your hometown and why you think its a good place for two young cooking worker parents to go move.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Aditional notes:
Puerto Rico is a pretty expensive place to live in.

I am from NYC and have lived in every borough of NY. Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten Island and the Bronx. I can tell you right now that is is VERY expensive and I myself am trying to move OUT of NY. BUT for a Pastry Chef and Cook in their prime ages NYC would be very beneficial to your little family. There are an abundance of thriving restaurants. Also, there a million and one day care centers to care for your child. The culture here is amazing and the room for growth and opportunity in culinary arts here is amazing. I will give NY that. Anyway good luck with your move! Please wish me luck as well.

Straight to Miami, surrounding areas in South Florida. Hone your skills, get experience there, then think about making a bigger move for more $$. Good luck!

Take the West Coast off of your list too. Seattle, Portland OR, and most of California. Way too expensive!

What about New Orleans? Charleston SC?

Florida or New Orleans sounds best for your situation.

I would pick Las Vegas. Low COL and lots of jobs for cooks/chefs.

Houston, TX. It's a dark horse when people think of cultural amenities, but a city well worth keeping on your radar. The city has a similar climate to Puerto Rico's, amazing food with a high demand for trained chefs, and as the fourth largest city in America, has every convenience you could ever desire. It's a multiethnic city like Miami, but it is also very inexpensive to live here relative to other cities in America. The food available runs the gamut from Ethiopian to Turkish to Maltese to Icelandic to Moroccan and everything in between.
