ok, ok everybody. She wanted a place with COOLER summers than ATL, and she said she dosen't mind cold winters, why is everyone suggesting places in TN or NC???? What's difference between summer temps in Nashville or Knoxville and Atlanta? NOTHING. In fact, Nashville is HOTTER in summer.......and Raleigh is about the same. Chicago is the perfect city for her....however I don't know it's too expensive for her....

I love this! You guys are helping so much. I came to this site by accident. It's so interesting to get so much feedback. Does anyone know about Vancouver, Wa? It came up alot while looking for apartments in Portland. I can't wait to let everyone know where I end up! I'll be deciding by the end of the month. I want to have time to put the kids in some local activities. They might have a chance to get to know some kids a little before school starts. The Northwest will be my last stop. I may see if I can post some pictures of my journey. I think I'm going to move up my trip to Colorado.

I'll know as of Thursday. I'm going to go and get a feel. I've been before, but I was always busy. I've never gone just for fun. I've only been for business. BTW you're so funny!

VERY rarely does it get torandoes, in fact ATL probably gets more tornadoes than Chicago, since Chicago is close to Lake Michigan, that kinda sheilds it from torandoes, which is why the amount of tornadoes increases rapidly once you get west of Rockford.......

Well, if you really think about it, this year has been a really active year for tornadoes all over the country, besides this year, the last time there was a tornado in the city was 1975 I think. But still the risk is still there so I think the Pacific north west is still best. And even though Chicago doesn't get any tornadoes, its not called the Windy City for nothing.

though Chicago IS windy, that's not why it's called the windy city. The origin of the name comes from the late 1800s when people said that Chicago's politicians were "blowing a lot of wind" when they speak..

I think another good suggestion is Minneapolis, I may be wrong about this, but I think it's cheaper than Chicago, and it's very diverse, and the summers aren't THAT bad compared to Atlanta.


Good luck

Boy you guys always forget to mention Minnesota and the twin cities. Recreaion is great especially for families. Kids would have no problem finding things to do. Lots and lots of black people. Some of them are my good buddies and co workers. Winters are at best COLD. Nothing to hit wind chills 60 below zero. However if you are equipped for winter and have boots and hat and the kids to you will do fine. You may have to take your battery out of your car on really cold nights but here in Minnesota that is nothing new. People are great. But in the twin cities you will NOT get a three bedroom anything for I would guess be less than 1500. Outside the twin cities I would say maybe. Your choice and good luck in your move.
