If you are open to it and given what youíve mentioned, counties in NY like Lewis and Essex, offer lower taxes and a similar rural/small town vibe. You are still close enough to cities for more. Just a thought in terms of more options...

Yea, southern Indiana closer to the Ohio River is more southern than northern, but aligns much more with the South in terms of climate in particular.

I have considered the area around Lake Placid and Saranac Lake, but they don't really have many options there in my career field. Not interested in Lewis county in the Tug Hill Plateau region, mainly because of the economics and demographics of the area. I wouldn't discount the Adriondacks but it would have to be a very good opportunity given the higher cost of living and tax burden of northern NY.

Thatís fine and all, but you donít live in the South so you wonít be leaving the South when you move closer to Canada.

I will be leaving a more culturally southern area to an area that is not culturally southern at all, so quite a difference. As long as I leave behind the vast majority of any heat and humidity that will be satisfactory.

The southern Indiana counties near the Ohio River are generally Republican overall, Louisville proper on the other side of the river is generally Democratic- although it trends substantially Republican in all outlying areas for the most part.

Well, for starters, people generally do not leave Florida because it is ďtoo hot.Ē That includes native-born residents and transplants from ďup North.Ē

Instead, people leave Florida because salaries and wages are low and non-competitive relative to the cost-of-living, which is deceptively high.

Also, it is very challenging for a careerist in Florida to advance in his or her career field without moving out of state. Sadly, there is a low volume of quality, reputable employers throughout most of the state.

Remember, economics is always the primary catalyst for relocation after school.

That's nice.
