Im thinking about going to USA to study english (Im brazilian) but I dont know where I should go hahah Well, Im searching for a city full of pubs, night clubs, a good nightlife in general. But Im also worried about the quality of life, Id like to go to a place thats not so violent. If there are beaches or other good atractions in the city, it would count too. So what cities do you suggest me?

Providence, RI or New Bedford, MA that area also has a high amount of Portugese and Brazillians, (if seems you are proficient in English) so you will not feel like a fish out of water completely.

Austin, Texas is a very safe city with great nightlife. Awesome city, warm weather, nice scenery just west of town.

If you want a "beach city" with good night life, then Miami and Los Angeles are the two that immediately come to mind.

I might replace San Antonio with Austin, otherwise I agree with this list.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Loch Lomond, in their metro area has a high percentage of native Brazilians. So that area might work well for you.

Here is a list of the Top 101 cities with the most residents born in Brazil. You didn't mention anything about climate preferences? I never cared for Austin, Texas, I think its vastly overrated, but others find it the fair-haired child of Texas. Maybe the list will be of some help. Visit the state forums too. Good Luck.

Actually, Im not looking for brazilians once I wanna go there to practice my english. But I like some suggestions.. Lately Ive been thinking about Los Angeles, but it seems to be extremely big, and I heard people saying its also violent, full of gangs and stuff. Even though, I guess LA is one of my best options, its beaches are great, the nightlife must be good too once its one of the most important cities in US and also in the world. But searching a little bit about it, I found out that most of parties there end up at 2 AM because its not allowed to have alcohol after that time. Is it common in all US or its only in LA? And does it bother or the night life still great?

That is common throughout the US. I believe the only places with bars open past 2am are Vegas, Manhattan, Atlantic City and possibly Miami Beach? Someone posted a good list recently in CvC.

If you're not looking for an area with a big Brazilian population, try Philly. Why Philly? Because, **** you, that's why. You'd get that joke if you lived here.
