My partner has posted here before so I figured I'd try to put my likes to see if anything matches what I think is ideal. Here goes

4 seasons preferably
Within 1 hr or less of an international airport
Not constant grey skies like those of Seattle
Access to nature (don't have specific hobbies just admire the beauty)
Single family home no more than 400k but really would like 300k
Quality school system
Cultured/educated population
Non religious environment
Liberal city
Thriving city
NOT a small town/rural feeling environment
Also would like to avoid a city where there are few outsiders and social circles were developed way back....or that outsiders are not welcomed.

Btw I work from home so location isn't an issue for me but my SO would like access to administrative type jobs to supplement income. We hope to move as soon As possible. Any ideas anywhere in the U.S.?

Thanks!

So you want to move to a city where outsiders aren't welcome? Wouldn't that make you a outsider then?

Look into Denver, Minneapolis, and Philadelphia. I can't really think a city where there aren't a lot of outsiders. People are flocking into major cities in droves so a majority are technically "outsiders".

Minneapolis would be perfect. The TCs get a justified reputation for being hard for outsiders to integrate but IMO that's more a suburban/exurban problem. In Minneapolis proper they are far more welcoming.

I was thinking the same thing and I thought about the Colonie area(specifically the South Colonie SD). Good suburban SD that is right next to Albany and Schenectady, depending upon where you live in the district and that has a good degree of various types of diversity in its schools. South Colonie Central Schools - Colonie, NY

It is also close to SUNY-Albany, Siena College, St. Rose College, Union College and other colleges and universities. It is also where the Albany International Airport is located. It also doesn't hurt that you have 4 mountain ranges, as well as NYC and Boston all within 2-3 hours away.
