Hi all,
I am highly considering on moving from the state of Florida. For a list of reasons. What I am looking for is:
1. A safe and very friendly and kind hearted town or city
2. Where the economy is better than 12.0 unemployment (that is what it is where I live now)
3. I like the milder weather
4. And a place where being straight and single with no kids at 36 doesn't matter (NO I am not looking for night clubs I hate the bar scene).
5. A place where as Asian's are welcome. I say this cause my best friend, who would come with me, is Asian and she has been treated badly in some parts of the country while traveling.
Thank you in advance for your KIND advice. Take care

Maybe a college town in other parts of the South or West. Places like Charlottesville VA, Chapel Hill NC, Blacksburg VA, Clemson SC, Harrisonburg VA, Hattiesburg MS, Auburn AL and Lexington KY, among others in the South. Maybe places like Tempe AZ, Provo UT, Boulder CO and Logan UT in the West.

Denver, low unemployment (6.7-6.9), suprisingly mild weather, laidback people, relatively large Asian population.

Maybe somewhere in the lower Midwest, like Cincinnati, OH or Indianapolis, IN. Both are diverse areas, with mild weather and reasonably good economies.

Georgia, North Carolina, and Texas seem to be getting a fair amount of Asian immigration.

Maps: Migration Flows in the United States - Pew Social & Demographic Trends

Kiplinger's lists three cities from those states as good for jobs.

Athens, Georgia
Austin, Texas
Raleigh, North Carolina

Best Cities: It's All About Jobs - Kiplinger.com

Washington state is also high in Asian immigration and they list Olympia, Washington too. However that might be too cold for you, not certain.

The following map, that was on another thread, might give you some sense on unemployment rates.

Note: Bear in mind I have little travel experience and mostly go by statistics.
