Thank you for this suggestion. Actually I've been thinking a lot about Oregon. Ashland has only 20.000 inhabitants. How is there with the job opportunities?

BitofEndearment,

Thanks a lot for such a detailed reply!
What is the situation with the crime and ecology in these cities?

plates, glamatomic

I'm not afraid of high temperatures and humidity. But it depends how high. For example, in Nicosia (where I live at the moment), during the summer the temperature and humidity are extremely high. You will not get rain, even clouds are rare. This night 98% is expected. During the day, such imagination, the air is burning.

Is summer in NC the same way?

Thank you.
Commute is really material.
Regarding the unicorn, you are absolutely right, but the purpose of this search is to find the closest

That's good, it opens up a lot of places for you then.

North Carolina can be humid but is usually not as bad as Texas. North Carolina has a lot of nice cities such as Charlotte, Raleigh, Durham, and others.

Nearby Medford is a short commute, but it's generally more conservative there.

Seems to be very nice. How is it about the crime?

Would you like to be able to find Ukranian food or Cyprus food?

Crime in the city is going to be highly variable depending on the neighborhoods. In all of these cities you're going to be able to find very safe areas and these cities also came to mind precisely because they have less crime than many others. Many of the factors I listed before, like decent employment rates, lends to lower crime.

Fort Worth was already a big city undergoing a boom, usually a recipe for I Can't Handle This Overload! crime levels but Fort Worth seems to be managing fairly well, and I know several people down there who have come from much tougher cities who are perfectly fine raising their families in Fort Worth. There are a few neighborhoods such as East Lancaster that have been profiled as high crime but the city is vast there are large stretches of safe neighborhoods and you are not going to accidentally stumble into a bad one.

San Diego does have some areas with high crime, I believe Downtown and City Heights are considered some poorer neighborhoods as far as crime states, but the city is notorious for being a big city AND safe on the overall. Forbes ranked it the 9th safest city in America.

Richmond's crime rate has been declining steadily for years. The city probably has suffered the worst reputation for crime as far as these four go but that's a bit outdated now. The inner city and suburbs are actually pretty safe, though neighborhoods with high concentrations of housing projects and on the south side of the city are apparently less so.

Nashville has some gnarly neighborhoods but it is blessed by the fact that Tennessee's biggest city, Memphis, has one of the worst crime rates in the US. On the overall it has a pretty average crime rate for an America city, with some bad neighborhoods and plenty of good ones. It wouldn't be a problem to find a good place to live that is safe and urban.

Can I get back to you on ecology?

You said not above 35c, that's on the low side for the high temps this time of year. Although the western part of the state is much much cooler (usually) due to the higher elevation. The major city there is Asheville and it's not all that big of a city. However it does frequently go below 0c.

You say where you live now humidity is extremely high but rain and clouds are rare
