I currently live in southeast Florida and I do not like it one bit.

I prefer milder weather. Its way too hot and humid here. I could handle 30's 40's 50's 60's 70's in terms of weather.

My work experience is in marketing and entry-level finance. I would take any business job to get started (finance, accounting, marketing, consulting, analyst etc). I have a bachelors degree in business marketing from a state university. I have been working full time for 3 years.

I am 27 years old. I love being close to the ocean, the mountains, and nature in general. I want to live amongst smarter, more cultured people. I want to live in an area with higher income, even if it means that it is much more expensive to rent an apartment there.

In a nutshell, I want better weather (cooler), better people (smarter, friendlier, more cultured, not such rude ignorant entitled morons), and better career opportunities with higher income. Florida, well how could anyone live here unless you're retiring rich. Maybe I'll come back when I make 10 million dollars

Where do you experienced travelers recommend I move to? I would appreciate your input

You named three main criteria for which Miami is about as bad as it gets, so most of the country looks good as a result. Few places are not cooler temps than Miami, most large cities have better career opportunities, and it's not hard to beat the stereotype of the people in South FL.

That said, considering mountains, ocean, nature, business marketing and finance, I'm gonna suggest Seattle followed by Portland. Denver and Minneapolis deserve mention but obviously you'll have to compromise on the ocean part.

Check out Durham-Chapel Hill in North Carolina. It's within a couple of hours of both mountains and the coast, has a moderate four season climate, a healthy economy with a low unemployment rate and a generally friendly population with high educational attainment. Durham-Chapel Hill is ranked #10 in terms of metro areas having the most educated population in the country, with around half of the population holding a Bachelor's Degree, versus Miami where it's about half that. It's also not insanely expensive either with a cost of living less than Miami, and salaries higher in most instances.
