My husband and I are newlyweds. He just finished college and I still have a year left. His degree (and mine will be as well) is in education. We have lived in Ohio our entire lives and feel it is time for a change, even if it is only for 3 years or so. So, we wouldn't be moving until early next summer, but we want to be prepared. We would probably rent for the first year, before we would choose to purchase a home. We are willing to be flexible on prices...Weather wise...we like some snow in the winter, but not TOO much and if we have a beach/lake to relax at the heat wouldn't be too large of a factor. But either way we are flexible. We realize there isn't the "perfect" place. NE you have snow, south...hurricanes...midwest/plains, tornadoes/snow etc. Again, that goes along with the whole idea of being flexible.

So...this may be general..but it's my first post. We are looking to move to a place that has around a 30 minute commute to the city. We would love our scenery to be the ocean...or mountains we aren't going to be picky. As I said we're from Ohio and...well, need to view something other than corn/bean fields. Obviously we will both have our BAs in education, so we would want to be around good schools. We like to go out to eat, go to sporting events, movies, biking, we have a little dog that we love to take on long walks. We are generally very active people, in our church and community (both coaching sports). I would also prefer the 30-45 min. commute for shopping purposes.

We are willing to go just about anywhere...east, west, south...we just need more insight.
