Good morning!

I have lived in Kentucky my entire life. Grew up in Richmond, moved to Lexington for the jobs, now in Florence (right outside of Cinci). My wife is from Wisconsin (met in college). We are both looking for a change in scenery/people. We are looking for a high tech, "green", hip, intelligent culture to surround ourselves with.

The first place that comes to mind is the Silicon Valley in CA. While it is on our short list, we would like other, affordable, options. Through research, I've found some other places that may or may not work...

- Austin, TX
- Portland, OR
- Seattle, WA
- RTP in NC

We are looking for warmer weather (she is from Wisconsin, so she is sick of seeing snow) and affordable, 3 bedroom home.

I haven't spent enough time in the other 3 cities to comment, but I know that in Austin, you would have to be very selective about where you chose to live to find that scene you're seeking. The Austin forum here would be a good resource to identify such neighborhoods and parts of town.

The Bay Area is calling...LOL

The one thing that you will need to more flexible with is housing cost.

Oak Ridge TN is high tech, intelligent, affordable & warm(er). Trying to be green. I wouldn't call it hip, though. More like nerdy.
