For the OP who said the following : I have been to Miami in winter months and really loved the city you really spent a lot of time making disparaging remarks about it! After that comment you had absolutely nothing positive to say about Miami itself so why ask for an opinion when it seems like you have already made up your mind?

I think Seattle real estate is a little more over priced then what I am used to, but I will be renting right away, and if I decided to stay long term I think you can find a pretty good deal just outside of the city. Maybe if I was 21-24 Miami would be the better option for me, but right now Seattle is definitley the better choice. I am really excited to start working out the details and I really hope it works out.Its a long way to go just to turn around and go home so ive got to make sure I do it right. Thanks for the advice.

you're kidding, I would never little in seattle, miami ftw

look at how miserable people are in seattle: I Hate Seattle that website is real
If youre not affected by gloomy weather then youll be alright, most people need sunshine though

Look at Seattle if you are professional, educated, like nature and the outdoors and English is your language. Miami would be the polar opposite in every way. Great beach scene though perfect for the climate that keeps you in a prisoner to the a/c when not at the beach most of the year..

I think it's unfortunate that you are restricted to these two cities. It's obvious which one you definitely don't want (Miami). But I have a question. Now, I have never been to Florida at all. But are there no suburbs or smaller towns near Miami where you could raise a family so you could commute? You'd still have the sunshine you enjoy.

Do not downplay the necessity for climate needs. I can understand the support on here for Seattle. But it IS a crowded Hell as any big city is, and it IS grey and gloomy most of the year. You need to really, really assess if you can handle this, because you can't escape the problem by moving to the 'burbs. I've lived in the Portland area since '78 and have never adapted to the weather.
