I`ve been trying to compare several cities but can`t imagine myself the overall picture((
SO..
Austin(TX)vs St.Pete/Tampa vs Orlando vs Charlotte vs SanDiego vs Portland

I know you will be advise me to chose city where i would get my job. But i`ve decided to change my speciality at all because of my health(( I can`t work in office during whole day, i have to move.
I`m married and have one 2 yrs old kid)
There are main requirements about cities:

1) No snow and temperatures below 40-50F but not over 90F. Actually this is the major requirement because i`d like to live with full life in summer and winter, walk in the parks with the kid. We used to spend our time outside the home when we get back from the work. So when i was in Miami we did not do it..
2) A lot of rest places/parks for a walking with a kids
3) nice community with green area (lake)
4) easy to find unskilled work (For the first time untill i find the offer in my own speciality)
5) cheaper housing (i can affort 1200-1300$ per month)
6) more intelligent and friendly people/ NO REDNECKS (espesially on the roads)
7) less traffic

I realise here is too much conditions to make a decision I`m not from USA so i`ve never been to that states excluding FL (Miami). I`m confused at all))
Every city i`ve post has both pluses and minuses.

PS: Has anyone been to south TX and FL? How about humity and highest temperature in summer? where is the best/worst conditions?

The ONLY state that has this temperature range is Hawaii!
ALL other states can get below and above that range. Your list is too demanding.

It was just a for a sampe! Of course i know that temperature could be different from year to year. It has meant i do not like a snow and cold, also as 3-4 months of heat around 90-100F.

Austin, Tampa, and Orlando are often much hotter than you want. Charlotte gets snow every winter, or at least temperatures below freezing. In summer it gets above 90 also. San Diego is too expensive and has traffic. Portland is too cold for you. You're going to have to compromise somewhere.

You need to take several cities off your list then, starting with Austin in spite of it's many charms. Austin gets hot hot hot for three or four months in the summer. Well over 90 degrees is the norm, not the exception.

It obviously doesn't deter people from moving there and settling there, but you can't kid yourself - the heat n Austin is REAL.

Thank you all! Austin even hotter than Tampa/Orlando in summer?
I know SD is very expensive but i still haven`t realised under what criteria? Rent price? food? taxes?
When i was looking in Zillow about housing i found many offers with price below 1500$ per month. It seem quite enough comfortable and nice offers but it could have been a bad criminal areas so i dont know...
What about Portland? There is really raining all the winter?

As a general rule, the areas with the most moderate temperatures (AKA the California coast) where there are no extremes are going to be the most expensive.
