Default newly single mom of preschool twins - NC or NH?

Hi, I'm planning to relocate from Philly, PA. Would I find the state welcoming? I'm a nurse, so I guess work would not be so hard to find. Would appreciate any advice. I love to cook, love my kids, have cat and my car is an old station wagon. I'm looking for a friendly community (need village to raise my kids), small town, either coastal or in the mountains (with a real SNOW!) . Philly has none of that and we can't find an affordable housing there. Besides, people here are not very friendly (may be we are not wealthy enough).

Ok NH would do you good. Ya we have work for RN's. Pays a little low at first but it goes up fast. Norm is Between $20-$30 an hr start depends on where and what you do for RN work. So you want mountains ,and water , and snow. Wow how greedy lol. We want snow too. My sled hasn't been out in 2 years. And I now live northern NH. Any way back to the subject. Try Ossipee, Tamworth, Barlett, Waterville Valley Alexandria, Milan, Littleton,Lancaster, NEW HAMPTON, Belmont, Alton, Danbury, and Hill. I would tell you Hanover but they lak the lakes and water you want. It is driveable to get to them, but it is a good drive. And stay away from the Seacoast are as they get very little snow in comp. Try City- data for the info on these towns but then check out nneren.com for places for rent and houses for sale they also give you a map of the state so you know what town is where even break it down by county. It will show you home prices in the area as well as for rent and Property taxes. worth checking if you are going to relocate. And they want no info from you so no spam and no bothers. But all in all You will Love NH as much as NH loves Politics. lol

Wow, pamomtwins!

You received such a nice welcome right away! When I posted my thread about relocating, just about everyone in the thread told me "ever so nicely" to go somewhere else. Hmmmm. I do wish you luck and hope that you and your twins find your spot and will be happy.

Default Thanks!

Thanks for advice! I was thinking about North Carolina, but it looks like it is rapidly expanding and I would not be able to find a house for the reasonable price.
The big advantage of having snow in the winter is that you can take kids out. Otherwise, they are locked in, as in PA, where we have neither grass nor snow from October to April, and then have to hide inside form the heat the whole summer.

Thanks for advice, I would look into job market for RN.
