Dont be one of those people who cant wait to say "good riddance" to seasons, then regret the decision later. You can find mild seasons, with little-to-no winters (ie Atlanta). Id recommend Atlanta for you. Its definitely warmer in Atlanta than NE in winter, but summers there are not ridiculously hot and prolonged like they are here in Phoenix or Austin. Ive heard so many people say they dont mind heat, until theyre actually confronted with it year after year after year after year. Just like cold, heat wears on people, and they often find themselves looking for a milder climate after too long. Funny how that is.

I think you'll enjoy the warmer weather for a nice change. You may end up moving back but that's a luxury that we all have.

One recommendation that I have is to make sure you don't move anywhere too humid. While the warmer weather will be a nice change, the humidity can be hard to deal with in the warmer areas. Especially when you have a professional job and are required to dress appropriately. You get sweaty, your hair sticks to your forehead, etc. It isn't fun when wearing a business suit.

However, with that being said, I still enjoy my warmer climate and you couldn't get me to go through long difficult winters again.

Dallas, expect for #8. And its not warm, its boiling hot! If you can adjust, its probably the best. All big dadies of the corporate world are moving here.

Lot of my family from the Boston and NYC area almost all of them moved to Atlanta, Orlando or Miami. Atlanta has a great corporate culture but its hard to get a job in Atlanta i heard, same with Florida cities like Miami or Orlando.. it def pays to be in health care. You can get a job anywhere if you are a good DR or nurse, or business exec in health care.

I actually agree with Steve O for once. I used to live in Miami and while they have the best winters they have the worst falls, hurricane season hot and humid with a lot of rain, summers are ridiculously hot and humid and the springs are hot and humid as well.. Miami weather is only nice from end of Nov to end of March, which is why the snow bird from NY only live there during those months.
