I would like to move somewhere in the US that's hot and tropical all year 'round with my fiancé.
I hate the winter with a passion. I miss summer already.
I'm searching for a big city that's comparable to the size of Chicago. Chicago has so much to offer and it will always be my favorite but I can't stand our brutal winters so I'm considering moving in the future.
I want a warm city that's vibrant, full of life and entertainment for young people. I visited Miami and it was lovely so I'm definitely considering that.
I don't want a place that overly expensive because I'm not rich, but Chicago's prices are so high on everything already, I highly doubt that there's cities that are extremely higher on cost of living. I would like to find a place that has job opportunities so it won't be difficult to find work.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'd say Arizona, too, but I don't think I'd call it tropical.

I left chicago or texas last year and could not be happier...

I just looked at the temps out there, and its seems its in the 50's and windy... While out here, were looking at 80's-90's and sun all the way through november...

I HATE CHICAGO WEATHER.

Try to visit Houston and see what you think. It's the 4th largest city in the country behind Chicago, IIRC.

Gotta go east or west. Florida, Arizona, or California (coastal parts anyway).

Hot and tropical all year long leaves just one option in terms of big cities, Miami. It may have a couple of weeks of cold weather but otherwise it fits the bill. It's vibrant, offers lots to do and has plenty of job options. The cost of living isn't extraordinarily high either.

Some where on the Gulf Coast from Huston to Tampa.

My own preference would be for a small town in central New Mexico. I do not like big cities.
