My top considerations/priorities:

Job market: Electrical engineer, looking for a place with opportunities
Crime: Low crime rate
Weather: Hot (very hot), Dry, sunny climate
Demographics: Diversity is a plus, not a necessity though
Pricing: Low housing and medical prices is top priority (as far as pricing goes)
Culture: Preferably basketball teams in the area, Many restaurants/groceries in the area

Any suggestions for places to live? Thanks.

Where do you live now? I'd say a Texas city, maybe San Antonio, Austin, or Houston but they're not a completely dry climate like the western states. Maybe Phoenix? Just a few ideas...

Also what do you consider "basketball teams?" NBA, WNBA, college, D-league? That would help us all get a better idea if it's important to have around.

Right now I live in the New York metro area. It's good, but housing prices are sky high and it gets too cold for my liking in the winter.

Either NBA or college would count. Not WNBA or D-League. It's not a huuuge priority, but definitely a pro if there is one in the area.

To both: Yeah, these places seem appealing in most ways, not sure about their opportunities for engineers / technical professions, such as electrical engineering though.

Phoenix, or the Inland Empire in California.
