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?
Actually, I do. Lived there and Camas last year.
Sorry to say it's just not that diverse and folk will be more introspective
than what you're probably used to coming from Atlanta.

Seattle like Chicago is pricey but wages are good.
The schools here are excellent, diverse, and seem to actually care
about kids. IE: free bus transportation, many stylized programs for
gifted children and otherwise. (it's refreshing to see tax money
properly utilized ) My kids have been in schools in Chicago,
San Marcos, Vancouver, Camas and Seattle. Seattle and Camas
easily offer the most.

Having said that I'm not going to recommend this city to
anyone, it's obviously not for everyone and it's a world away
from Atlanta, geographically, culturally and climate wise.

As far as Chicago/Milwaukee one could do worse.
I really don't understand folk panning and discounting
these fine cities. They are both cities of neighborhoods and suburbs.
Just pick the right ones. Best of luck

C'mon, that's hardly a visible Black presence, at least when compared to the other metros mentioned.

I love Seattle. I did see a couple of Black people in the mall! I'm going to be here a little while longer, but I do think it's really nice. I also love being so close to Canada.

Colorado Springs- it was 100 degrees and boring! I'm not really the hiking in the mountains kinda girl and I don't go rafting. So I didn't really have anything else to do. You sort of get a feel for a place. I just did not feel I could fit in.

Well, if anybody still cares, I may have made my decision. I still have a few more things to check out.

Did you decide on Seattle? You seem to like it.

Anyway, if you didn't like COSprings, I hope you at least visited Denver! Denver is much more exciting.
