The first city I thought of when I read your post was Boston. You might have trouble with cost in Boston proper, but maybe some of the suburbs and places like Cambridge, MA. Not too sure about cost of living, or Hispanic friendly since I don't live there but location wise it's ideal for you. I'm from Miami too and I see where you are making these choices from. These are pretty much the same exact things I want in a city ( I plan on moving out of this hellhole when I'm 18 also ). Btw, you mentioned Miami being too hot, but compared to Texas and Georgia, our weather is pretty nice since our winters are warm and the summers never get too hot since it's always cloudy or raining. Texas and Georgia are the same except the summers are REALLY hot and REALLY humid. Good luck!

I don't know when looking for a job I sticky to my list or I should look everywhere (Yes, even North Dakota)... I just want to fulfill my dreams, be the happiest possible, live in a place I REALLY LIKE, buy my cottage and being able to save some money

Move where you get a job, or move back in with your parents. Since you don't seem to be tooo picky, I would just throw out a wide job search net.

Your post and responses are confusing though... you are moving to cities that are NOT what you want... and throwing out ones that fit your criteria.

Your best bets are going to be DC or Chicago burbs.

If you are looking to get away from Miami heat/humid, Houston isn't going to help you in that dept, nor would I consider it 4 seasons in TX

Well the Washington DC/Northern Virginia area as of right now has the lowest unemployment rate in the US, and has a sizable Hispanic community (although nothing compared with NYC, Miami, or Houston). The only downside is the cost of living but alot of jobs there do pay really well.

That being said just go where ever the jobs are.

I am from Arlington, Texas which is exactly between Dallas and Fort Worth. As far as I know from friends and news, the public school system in Dallas is not the best. The Metroplex (the area including and surrounding Dallas, you could also call this area North Texas) is a hugely diverse place. There are people from all walks of life living here. I enjoy being in Arlington because I can access Dallas or Fort Worth in about 20-30 mins on the highway. Dallas does have a large Hispanic community. Speaking Spanish would probably open many doors for you, job wise.

Also, I had been considering moving to Denver. From what I've read, you can similar things about Denver as Dallas. Good luck! I've lived in this area all my life and have really enjoyed it. I am moving for grad school and will miss it.
