Are you looking for a city that is similar to Philly or different than it? Chicago is somewhat similar to Philadelphia and there are many job oppertunities there. Atlanta is much smaller than Philly and is thriving now while Philly had its peak in the 1950's. Houston is larger than Philly and has very hot weather. It is much more diverse than the Philly but it could be a culture shock hailing from the northeast.

So choose
Chicago - if want to live in a large city that is similar to Philadelphia. You will have to cope with cold midwestern winters but there is plently of nightlife and activity happening.

Atlanta- if you want to live in a smaller southern city with a huge nightlife scene and mild winters but horrible traffic and economy.

Houston- if you want to live in a large city than Philly in land and population, and have great job oppertunies. Downside is the heat during summer and the culture shock.

Before you even think about moving, you should have a job offering there.
