Also, thanks everyone for the advice! After further research, we will probably be moving to Indianapolis
Not a bad choice...not sure if you have settled on Indianapolis, but have you looked into the Twin Cities, Des Moines, or Omaha? The latter two aren't the most exciting places in the world, but the are solid.

Agree regarding Indy. The Midwest/Upper Midwest including MSP, OMA, DSM even KC would be my choices if I were younger and looking to relocate. Although I've never lived there, I've been to Ohio many times. It is the very definition of America to me.

Do not consider Texas (it was mentioned above), it is EXTREMELY hot here. =(

Those types of jobs are available in several places, so what other things do you like to do? What else are you looking for as well?

Do you want something that is less "beachy" since leaving the island?

Ohio is like one of those states where one is just born..... and they have to live there cuz well...they dont'really have a choice.

Anyway, OP... I'd move to anywhere along the west coast of the US. . . Texas, Arizona, Washington, DC, Philly, NYC... maybe Boston....
Aside from Texas and Arizona which IMO are not as nice as Ohio all of those places cost a lot of money to live in, especially real estate and rent. Ohio might not be the coolest state but it's GREAT bang for your buck. I would definitely promote the idea of moving to Ohio just make sure you have a car lol.
