Currently living in NYC. Looking for a city that meets the following requirements:
1. Affordable (looking to spend no more than $1200 for a 1-2 bedroom)
2. Does not have snow or has very little (minimal) snow. I hate snow!!
3. Diversity.

I would love to hear your suggestions.

Atlanta.

There's a good selection of two bedroom apartments under $1200 in desirable neighborhoods (Sandy Springs, North Druid Hills, East Atlanta, Smyrna/Vinings), has very mild winters with no snow, is quite diverse and has an excellent economy in terms of jobs and decent salaries.

^Yeah, on that budget, coming from NYC and listing diversity and little snow as the only two other criteria, I think Atlanta is the best answer for sure.

No other requirements. I'm pretty flexible to everything else.

Thanks for the Atlanta recommendation. It seems like everyone I know has moved there. LOL. I am very familiar with Fulton County. I used to have to go back and forth weekly about five years ago (did this for a year). The traffic in Atlanta seems worse than NYC. I will take it into consideration though. I did love Alpharetta!!

Albuquerque, NM; Phoenix, AZ; Tucson, AZ; Las Vegas, NV; Atlanta, GA, maybe Tampa or Orlando, FL?

Edit: Maybe look into San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, TX as well?

I've actually been looking around the Fuquay Varina area right outside of Raleigh. I have a lot of family in Greensboro/High Point and the surrounding counties near Fayetteville. This puts me close to them but not too close. LOL.

Thank you. The areas of TX you have listed are one's I've been researching also. I greatly appreciate your recommendations.
