Born, raised and currently residing in West Virginia but looking for opportunities in a handful of other states. I love my state but the opportunities and future just aren't here and to be truthful they've probably never been here to begin with.


I have one or two places that I really want to work out, if I can find the right opportunity, but I've got a few other places that I've been researching and such and I think would be good for the future. Also I have a list of places that are a firm no.


The fun part now is trying to find an opportunity as an out of state job applicant.

Born and raised in MN (Twin Cities) my whole life, finally landed a job opportunity that's allowing me to work remotely, husband is in banking/finance and my kids are very young... we are going to take the plunge this summer/fall to get out of MN for awhile. I love MN, I agree with what others are saying above about having that feeling of longing for their home state, but I think it's important to live somewhere else for awhile and become a more well rounded person. We are looking at northern GA, western NC, Colorado, and very briefly we looked into Austin, TX. Hoping to find a better climate, lots of outdoor culture, lower cost of living and good quality of life for our kids.

Yes. I'm planning to move to Minnesota this summer. I have a flight up there tomorrow. I love Texas but nothing is keeping me here anymore, so I'm going north where I've wanted to be for the past 7 years.

Aren't property taxes there super high though?

Also OP, I'm from CT...there are many worse places you could live! I've lived in quite a few places from having been in the military. At least you are quite close to many major metros in CT. That said, I now reside Washington state and definitely prefer it over CT for a variety of reasons.

I'm considering leaving Delaware in a few years. Too many areas are either really cookie-cutter or have high crime rates. I don't really care much for the Northeast in general, to be completely honest. One of my biggest factors in deciding where to live is affordable housing costs, and you just don't get that in many Northeastern places.


I used to live in Pittsburgh, and am contemplating eventually moving back that way. I'm also considering Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio. I'm sure I'll be asking this forum about recommendations in a few years, lol.

How do you like Tacoma? Given housing costs, that looks attractive. I got a family of four. I think it's the next hot market.
