San Francisco is almost never hot and rarely gets a decent summer. East Bay and other areas of Bay Area do get very hot. Mark Twain quote:

Delray Beach, FL.

I love this artsy, vibrant community between West Palm Beach and Ft Lauderdale, FL. less than an hour from Miami.

Hej!

Jag rekomenderar dig att flytta till Los Angeles eller Miami... bada staderna ar mycket vackra och har milda till varma vintrar! Gillar du nattklubbar, vackra strander osv rekomenderar jag Miami.
Miami ar aven mkt billigare an Los Angeles.

Try the Tidewater/Hampton Roads area of Virginia. It has Virginia Beach, a lot of history, it's big enough, but not too big and much more. Tidewater region of Virginia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Not to be a downer here, but the drinking age in the US is 21, and most bars and clubs won't let people under 21 in, so I don't think any place is going to have great nightlife for a 19 year old. Just saying. If you want nightlife, other countries would be better than the US.

That said, in the US, Florida and New Orleans are probably the best bets in terms of warm weather and fun for a young person.

California is nice too, but will probably be too expensive (and it does get sort of chilly in the winter).

I would recommend Phoenix, Tempe, or Scottsdale in Arizona.

Pole dancing, mowing lawns, walking dogs or whatever.

Iíve thought about:
Miami (I unfortunately donít speak a word Spanish)
Las Vegas
Los Angeles
San Diego
SF- bay area (seems a bit too expensive for me, and a tad bit too cold)
New Orleans (might be cold in the winter? Iím still in love with the city though)
Houston

Any suggestions or comments?
I would say definitely Miami or Las Vegas...

Have fun I wish I could go with you............LOL

I used to live in New Orleans, and its thee best. it shouldnt be that cold in the winter, but last winter there was a cold snap and it got down to 19 degrees at one point. However, this cold snap was all over the south; temperatures in florida got below freezing too. the weather has been wonky everywhere... no way to predict what this winter has in store.

do you have a work visa? if you are serious about pole dancing, NOLA is a great city to strip in in the winter. but you need a social security card.

and be careful what neighborhood you live in. new orleans is a checkerboard city, and if you dont pay attention you could end up living in a rough part of town where you will get mugged when you leave your door.

also, in regards to the comment about you being under age: this really doenst matter in new orleans. ive been carded very rarely ( i am over 21 though, but in other cities i get carded everywhere). if you are in the touristy areas or the quarter you will get carded, but the best places to explore in new orleans are a lot more laid back and in general fairly lawless, they really dont care unless you appear to be 14 or some ****. and even then the bartender might be too drunk to notice .



have you considered austin? its warm and safe and very traveler friendly. and there seem to be a lot of odd jobs there; i have a lot of friends there who have found work who are from outside of the US and dont have a work visa. seems to be fairly easy to do.

Las Vegas is your best choice, then LA or San Diego.
