I have had several friends pack up the Los Angeles area for Portland OR. They love it.
- Safe- Good for raising family - we don’t need a huge metro city but prefer not to be way out in the country either. We still want restaurants, stores, some life... balance is good.- a place that’s maybe more bipartisan would be nice. We are both tired of feeling like the only individuals in our perspective offices who aren’t far left leaning. - we wouldn’t necessarily need to stay in CA, but somewhere within an hour or two flight of the Bay Area would be preferred due to family.- I’m in tech so having some job prospects would be great. My wife is in a field where she could work pretty much anywhere. - I’m not a huge fan of scorching weather so Arizona would probably not be a good option.
My only issue with a lot of OR would be the cloudy days.
We’ve had a couple friends move to Nevada (Gardnerville) recently who say they are pretty happy.
I like Eureka, CA
Some cashed out his house in Sunnyvale and bought a 2,200sf SFH in Oceanside for $600k all cash in Socal and is loving it there.
insanely great food scene
You can't charge $200 a couple in Chicago and not have good food. You'd be out of business very quickly. In CA you can get away with that shit.
The downside of summer is not heat, rather rain in the late afternoon.
