Hello, I am a Family Physician looking to relocate. I have considered: South, Southwest, and the West. Pretty much anywhere that doesn't get too cold. Please, if any of you have any keen insight on relocation with a welcoming community I would be very appreciative. I am currently in the Midwest and grew up in the Midwest. I am getting very tired of the brutal winters here. Thanks!

If you want something that looks like Kansas, try the Central Valley (San Joaquin or Sacramento vallies) where it doesn't snow and the cost of living is less than the coastal areas.

I have a brother in the Lancaster/Palmdale area north of Los Angeles and he tells me that they're hiring lots of doctors out there. This area is an hour north of L.A. in L.A. County and is relatively affordable. The west side of California Highway 14 is the most desirable in the 93536 and 93551 zip codes. An area that is adjacent to there is Acton, (zip 93510) in the San Gabriel Mountains between Palmdale and Santa Clarita, is very desirable! It is predominantly ranch homes, but very beautiful and an easy commute to Palmdale or down into L.A.

If you have a family, the Palmdale/Lancaster area or the Acton area is great! An hour from the beach in Santa Monica, an hour from L.A., 45 minutes from Universal Studios, an hour and a half from Orange County and Disneyland, three hours from Las Vegas, three hours from San Diego, an hour and a half from Ventura beach, two hours from Santa Barbara, five hours from skiing at Mammoth Mountain, two hours from Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake resorts, seven hours to the Grand Canyon in AZ, etc.

Lancaster and Palmdale? Not on my list of desirable places. Hot, windy crummy look to the area. High desert living.

Find something closer to the coast.

And this is why CA has 40 million people and KS is fly-over country. Always wonder how folks like you and your ancestors put up with it this long.

Been there done that. Do you want something that resembles Kansas or as far from it as possible? Cause we got both and every flavor in between.

Haha I was there a few years ago for the first time. There were beautiful homes in the small towns. Buy that is about it. There are no theme parks or museums or anything to keep someone young like me entertained. I couldn't live there. It's already been stated but you should have no problem finding an area you like as this state has a little bit of everything.

Hey Doc. Google San Luis Obispo County. Osteopaths are needed. Good luck!

Perhaps you will love the Monterey/Santa Cruz areas.

Do a search, there are many threads about the area.
