Hello,

I currently live in Chicago, i am in early thirties and work as an IT professional. My wife cannot stand cold weather, i plan to move to warmer place. I know Texas for sure is good option but i am thinking what are the other states i could move to. I am looking for following:

i) Being IT professional, want to make sure there is good career for IT

ii) Definitely must be warm (mild winter is OK).

iii) NO CA( west coast),NJ,MD,VA,DC

iv) Decent life style, we don't care about bars as we don't drink but good to have diverse people.


I would appreciate if people can share their thoughts.

Thanks in advance .

Raleigh, Nashville, Atlanta, Charlotte and Phoenix come to mind.

DFW had 10F days during the last few winters. Considering wind factor - it may not be your place.

Of the replies so far, I don't think Dallas would be much different than the others.
Besides, how long does that 10f last in Dallas? Answer: not nearly as long as Chicago.
Best bet for no winter at all is somewhere in the southern portions of the country along some sort of ocean.
Personally, I'd stay in Chicago, but to me, cold weather isn't an issue. The city itself has to have a cool factor.
