Where are they most likely to holiday, move, or envision being somewhat culturally or climatically similar to the UK?

None much like the UK, but probably most interest in California, New York, and Florida.

California and Florida. New York to a lesser extent, and only because of the city.

Personally, I am interested in the New England states, and some southern states (especially cities like Savannah).

Florida. Everybody goes to florida. We have a direct flight to orlando in the summer from Belfast.

People will also goto Pennsylvania in the summer to visit cousins etc because most people in ni have some sort of relative there. People won't go there outside of visiting relatives though. We have a flight to newark too.

California not so much its expensive...

Y'all should come check out Texas, especially San Antonio, Austin, and Fort Worth!

Savannah is worth a visit, and Charelston is beautiful also.

Depends on the person.

For young hungry job seekers, I'd say New York City or California for the opportunities. Particularly in the tech sector and science - California is streaks ahead of the UK for work opportunities. NYC is for pretty much anything and is seen as the natural place to go if you've done London! Conversely not many British job seekers are alive to the opportunities that may be available in the mid west or Texas. Most of us tend to think of the US as being a big conservative backwater surrounded by two extremely affluent and advanced coasts - whereas I know the reality is somewhat more complicated!

For holidays and travel experiences, I'd say most would be interested in visiting those areas that have a climate and natural environment that is most unlike Britain - so Florida, southern California, Las Vegas/Nevada, perhaps the Rocky Mountains. New England or the Pacific Northwest would not feature so heavily - why spend 700 on a flight to get the same crappy weather as you get at home?

A lot of Brits come to NYC for the shopping. For them it's much cheaper than the UK or other parts of the EU.

To be fair, New England's weather is not the same as the UK's at all. It's much hotter in summer and more humid. Summers are subtropical in New England. Where I live we have tropical summers for 3 months of the year. When it comes to natural environment, the entire Northeast US is practically one huge deciduous "rain forest" where the forest density is extremely high. Brits rely too much on stereotypes when it comes to the US, thinking only the Gulf and Mexican border states are the only places to find hot weather. Now what you said about the inland US being not as developed as the coast, there is a lot of truth to that except for Chicago which has a skyline that rivals New York City's. But, I suppose it's the same when foreigners visit the UK. What like 3/4 of tourists to the UK only visit one place: London and mostly central London
