I'm starting a new job soon, working from home, so I have the opportunity to move wherever I want. I am single and in my mid-twenties. I'm looking for a city that is warm most of the year (never freezing), bicycle-friendly, and vegan-friendly (local produce is a big plus). Low crime rate is also important to me. I'd like to spend around $1000 on rent, but $1200-$1400 might be fine if I found the perfect place. Does anyone have any suggestions of cities/neighborhoods to look into? Thanks.

Could you explain what "vegan-friendly" means? Because most major cities will all have plenty of restaurants that offer vegan food.

Check out Davis, California. Their motto is "Most bicycle friendly town in the world." It's a college town with lots of vegan-friendly options. You'd be an hour from San Francisco, yet the rent is significantly cheaper. You'd also be within easy driving distance from Napa, Big Sur, Yosemite and Tahoe. If you're not too keen on a college town, Santa Rosa, California could work too.

If those cities are too expensive, Tucson could be a good option. Check out the 4th Avenue District. It's very bike friend, progressive, walkable, and there's great vegan options. Unfortunately, it unravels into suburban sprawl quite quickly. But it's warm, liberal, and inexpensive.

Yuma, Arizona. Very affordable housing, I walk and bike everywhere. Lots of winter time produce! Farmers market. Lots of water in the area.
