We stayed in MA for almost 10 years but now looks like finally we decided to move out of MA. We can't withstand this cold and dark at 4 P.M in winter.

We are looking for places with warm weather and reasonable cost of living and jobs in engineering as well as in bio-tech. Anyone who relocated from MA, could you please help us.

We looked at Houston, Austin, Sandiego,NC...are there any other places to consider??

Thanks in-advance for your help.

Houston is a pit. Don't move here unless you like humidity. San Diego is very nice, but expensive. Austin is nice and parts of North Carolina are very nice but can have humid summers.

If you want warm (most of the year) weather, engineeering and biotech jobs look at San Diego.

If you need a low cost of living and can tolerate some cold weather, then look at NC.

I would look at the Texas cities last as they may be too hot for you coming from Mass.

I don't understand why people are telling the OP to avoid certain places because they're too hot. The OP is looking for warmth. I left Massachusetts for the same reason and moved to Las Cruces, New Mexico. But there are plenty of places in the Sunbelt with a desirable climate that the OP would like.

1. Sun belt places.
2. Should be able to find jobs in-case we loose current..both in engineering as well as in biotech.
3. Not that particular about school district but it will good to have one.
4. We are looking for low cost location, as we would like to save some money for retirement..

What about arizona, new-mexico,kansas, missouri,alabama etc we would like to hear more about the places which normally people don't discuss....

Thank you everyone for your help...
