As the title reads! If someone in their mid 20's was moving to a new state to start over and be somewhere new, where would you recommend? Affordable places that have strong night life and job prospects but also surrounding areas to settle down in when older.

It depends on the industry they are in, weather, what size city they prefer and their hobbies/interests etc.

As a twenty three year old I thoroughly enjoy living in Columbus, Ohio. Solid economy, lots of young professionals, new bars and restaurants constantly opening. Obviously not for everyone, especially if someone is looking for a metropolis the size of New York or Los Angeles.

The OP is already in Texas, so perhaps looking to get out and experience someplace new. Rather than focus on states which is difficult I would zero in on cities. All big cities have plenty of nightlife options (despite what some may say), along with good job prospects and some are even truly affordable. The issue for some is the superficial "prestige" factor and whether or not it's one of the trendy options so often mentioned on this forum, along with other sources. If you can look past the trendy you'll find a lot of suitable options where you can live well without stressing the budget (and yourself) to make ends meet while living the same type of lifestyle as someone in one of the "more desirable" cities. Columbus was already mentioned and a good choice along with other Midwest cities like Cincinnati, Kansas City, St Louis, Pittsburgh and Indianapolis.
