Maybe cities in Upstate NY like Syracuse, Rochester, Albany, Ithaca, Watertown, Binghamton and maybe Utica.

and Portland, OR as well.

Boulder has enough going on, is close to Denver and the mountains. You will need a car for ski trips and other outings but all you need for day-to-day getting around is a ****ing longboard.

That's one of the biggest stereotypes out there - I lived in LA for three years, never had a car, never had license, and didn't have problems. I got everywhere by foot, bus, and train.

There are some nice beach towns north of San Diego that might be of interest (I like Encinitas). Or San Diego itself.

Los Angeles is actually doable if you live and work in the city, preferably along one of its public transit lines. To get everything you want on your list of goods in L.A. might be a bit pricey, but probably not as bad as in many other cities.

Pittsburgh might be an interesting choice as well as it can match up fairly well with what you want save for job opportunities (make sure you secure a job before making the move). Another possible drawback (or bonus, maybe) is that it's not particularly cosmopolitan, but it is located decently close to some very cosmopolitan cities.

She speaks better English than I do.
I don't have one yet, this is just some early planning I'm doing.
Cause it might just as well become Australia or Canada. I'm just scanning for some cities that might be nice.

So, not going to quote all you guys, but thanks for all the tips!
Denver sounds really good, as does San Diego! I got a nice list now, and that's only the real big cities. Really appreciate it!

Oh for sure! I think that is ultimately going to decide for me where I have to take a go at!

Thanks! You just made me very curious, I'm going to look up some things there!

Nice list, I'm going to add Salt Lake City to that. For now I'm ignoring the smaller places, I can look for them later on somewhere around the cities on this list.

Is there any site where I can directly compare state laws and regulations?
