    Question Moving away

    I've been thinking about relocating to US. Can anyone recommend a nice place for me?
    I'm looking for somewhere mostly sunny with nice warm temperatures all year round, not too hot though. Between 20 to 28 celsius is optimum. Winter shoulnt be bellow 10 degrees. Low humidity of course.
    I wouldnt mind the occasional tornado, what I do mind though are insects of all kinds (spiders in particular), so please dont send me to any tropical or asian countries instead.
    Now I've checked a few locations already and what really stuck me is, that they dont seem to have green lawns. Instead they have only some brown yellowish dry stuff on the gardens. It's really dissapointing to see the lovely cheap houses with no green grass.
    I know I'm asking a lot but if anyone knows about a place that would come at least close to my requirements,I'd be grateful.
    Thanks for any help.

    Ah Anna, nobody is going to give you a recommendation as to where you should move if you're going to move away from us all here...........

    I'd say forget the US and head for somewhere like Tipperary, somewhere on the banks of Lough Derg, you'd love it there............

    Year round sunshine I hear...............almost................

    Florida would probably suit you... good weather and the odd hurricane to keep it interesting. Or Arizona... gets very hot but is not humid so you don't feel it too much. Nights are cold there though.

    California might qualify too, except San Francisco which has a somewhat Irish-type climate.

    Anywhere hot will have spiders, I reckon. The lawns you see are probably just dormant... The bottom half of States has lawns mostly of Bermuda or Zoysia grass, both of which go brown in the winter. Most Americans are proud of their lawns and go to great expense to maintain them to a high standard.

    L.A. has perfect weather almost year round. I worked there for a year after finishing college.

    You may have to compromise a bit. For example giving up the grass to get a warm dry climate. San Diego might be a possibility.

    If you do go, I will miss you.

    Anna what are you doing to us ???
    I have lived all over America & could be a font of knowledge & advice to you but why should I when you're planning an exit ??

    The U S has some wonderful places & every extreme in weather but do you really want to live amongst them ??
    If I had it all to do again I'd have gone to NZ or OZ instead. Americans are so badly educated generally, insular, noisy, gullible, patriotic (in a manufactured, psychotic kinda way), optimistic (in a naive kinda way you only get in young countries like US & OZ) & despite all the bleeting about "freedom" you enjoy so much more liberty in Europe than America (so many petty rules - I was sent to a shrink for 1-to-1 counselling because I accumulated 3 speeding tickets in 15 mths).
    It's a truly spectacular country geographically & I love holidaying there but I wouldn't go back to live.
    - Seattle - Best city by a mile if you want a relaxed European type vibe. Weather too like here though.
    - San Francisco - Best middle ground. Nice weather a lot of the time & very liberal.
    - Los Angeles - Apart from the wonderful weather it has no redeeming qualities.
    - San Diego - Hard to take this place seriously. Great weather, lots of beach bums. No one ever seems to be working.
    I don't really know Florida but if weather is your prime concern then it has to be there or Southern California I think. There is good weather in so many southern states but it can be deadly hot & humid in the summer.

    What about Wexford ? The sunny south east & all that .................

    If I was going to the US but not sure to what state I would narrow it down by finding the type of landscape I liked. Then climate and facilities available and how it may effect you career choice. For landscape start with costal or not, Mountain terrain or not then by climate and so forth until you have a small list. Before I settle I would also have to live there for a year or so.

    Did you consider Hawaii?

    anna, if you choose the states, pick florida as your entry point, the reason is tax, and believe the yanks are big on paying tax
