    I've grown up my whole life In louisiana and I'm looking to move once I graduate. There's so many big cities that I want to live in so I wanted to know which were your favorites and why. I'm going to be a teacher. Advice on what I need to do before I move would be helpful

    Make sure there is more than a million population or you will be committing gay suicide

    The only big city I lived in was Los Angeles but I was a child. My parents liked the city and the pleasant climate, on a plus, there is a lot of diversity of people.

    It's not a big city, I stared college in Charleston and I loved Charleston. For being in South Carolina, it is accepting of gays. There is a gay club the Pantheon, it attracts a mixed crowd. A lot of the club goers are College of Charleston students.

    Charleston has a lot of history and architecture dating before the civil war, in fact some of the buildings are older than the US.

    I have not been in Chicago or New York so other than I seen on the internet, I would personally know about them. You may like either or both if you move to either one of them. The cost of living is likely to be cheaper in Chicago.

    On a teacher's salary, you'd better pay attention to cost. NYC is out. Also LA and San Fransisco. Start with what you like to do. Water? Look at Fort Lauderdale. Hunting? Look at Nashville. What do you like?

    Hmm, oddly enough, there actually are teachers living in NYC, LA, and San Fran... they have schools there and everything.

    Tennessee Williams said that the US had only three cities: New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans. Everywhere else was Cleveland.

    While I don't necessarily agree with Tennessee, there is a certain amount of homogeneity in most places in the US. Houston is like Dallas is like Chicago is like Atlanta is like Kansas City is like...

    I'm a teacher and while I wouldn't want to live IN Manhattan renting alone, I might want to live in another borough given I had a roomie. That said, I think it's possible if you are creative enough. There are some extremely well paying private schools in Manhattan where you could swing it. It all depends on your situation.

    I met a teacher from Queens Friday night. He lives with his dad.

    Well I've been to many cities and really like most. I don't like temps below 65 degrees. So going on that and culture: Favorite city is Honolulu.

    My favorite city in the United States is San Diego. The weather is beautiful and I love the cultural diversity. Good luck on your relocation efforts!

    NJ teachers are paid very well. As long as you are not too far from NYC and teach in public schools. I have 2 teacher buddies. Plus if you have a masters pay goes up more and their health benefits are amazing.

    Paris has the best of everything, but to teach, you would have to teach English.

    . Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City, Las Vegas, San Diego
    . London, Paris, Rome

    I live close to LA, I'm in the suburbs at the moment. Hm, the other international city I'd love to move to - LONDON. But I don't know anyone there. It'd be difficult for a US citizen to get a job in the UK. You can teach anywhere, just pick and choose your preferences. I've been watching too much Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Million Dollars Listing LA. (Love love love Beverly Hills area and Notting Hill area in England). icon_smile.gif

    Melbourne. Always Melbourne. I may be a state traitor for saying this, but it's way better than Sydney.

    The problem I am having is that I cannot find any major city that I really do not like.

    So, I have been traveling for a long time now.

    If I were in my early 20's I'd move back to San Francisco, CA, thoicon_smile.gif

    With Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, Cape Town or Berlin being very, very close...

    Montreal for the people and culture.

    Budapest, Buenos Aires are second.

    Tehran is where I most want to visit once sanity returns there.
