I currently live in New England with my boyfriend and we are looking to move somewhere warm all year around, but inexpensive as well. We are getting very tired of the snow! I'm a young professional so I'd prefer to be somewhere near a city with lots of things to do. It would definitely be a plus to be somewhere by the beach. All suggestions are welcome, thank you!

I'm a 23 year old graphic designer for a corporate company and I don't want to be in a rural area where there is nothing to do. My idea of things to do, would be outdoor activities, entertainment, live music, bars, art museums, festivals, and great restaurants.

The best weather in the country, in my opinion, is in California. Very low humidity, and lots of areas get no snow at all and have mild winters. I've lived in WA state and TN - snow in WA, snow and humidity in TN.

There are lots of cheap places in California, but you can't have it all. If you need to be a professional where the jobs are and you want to be where there's stuff to do, it probably won't come cheap.

Of course, I don't know what your idea of cheap is. Why don't you go on Craigslist and see what the rents are like in the SF Bay Area, for instance. I live in Santa Clara, and it's safe, lots of jobs, 30 minutes to the beach, 40 minutes to SF. Remember, salaries are higher to go with higher cost of living, too.

A summer in San Fran is the coldest winter I've ever experienced.

You could try Houston. Will it be like living in the Florida Keys? No. But it's a large city with all that goes with being a large city. Winters aren't very cold at all (although summer's can be oppressively, humidly hot), and you can drive to beaches.

LMAO! That is so true! Mark Twain. Yeah, SF has it's own weather. Drive out of the fog, not very far away, and it's a whole different world, though.
