We are relocating from Europe to the U.S., and would like to get some input on where to live. Jobs are not an issue for us, and we have the opportunity to choose any city/state.

Our top priorities and interests are:
1. Warmer rather than colder weather
2. Safe neighborhood outside of a larger city
3. Good amenities:shopping, outdoor/indoor activities, etc.
4. Within 2 hours of a major airport
5. Nature

We are not looking to buy at this moment, so we would like to rent a place with a cost of no more than $1500/month.

What are your recommendations for what we're looking for? Take your best shot!

Miami sounds perfect.
1)hardly gets below 65 degrees during the day
2)has many safe suburbs
3)beautiful beaches and parks.
4)Miami international and Fort Lauterdale International
5)Mainly Latin city with other people as well

Has a low cost of living.
