College graduate -Want to move to California or somewhere warm. suggestions?

suHi, any suggestions about a good place to live in this country? as in an apartment or even to buy a home.

im 22 and just graduated from Boston University..and i really dont like this cold weather.. I like the atmosphere of northern california where its not too trashy and always good weather…. any suggestions of which city is good, or maybe another state…

PS. i would work in a health care field. and I am a low middle class status. so nothing too expensive.

Hey Led_Zep, I’m writing this 7 minutes after you just made your comment. It’s 59 degrees and raining on and off. http://www.10news.com/index.html See for yourselves everyone.

Now for where to move to.
You’ll probably be in an area with a large population that supports healthcare facilities. So that suggests San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose and Anaheim in the coastal zone. Going inland its Bakersfield, Fresno and San Bernardino.

What you do now is to go online and get the zip codes to these areas. Then go to Monster.com, Craigslist and CareerBuilder.com and search the healthcare jobs available there.

The zip codes for San Diego, CA:92101, 92102, 92103, 92104, 92105, 92106, 92107, 92108, 92109, 92110, 92111, 92112, 92113, 92114, 92115, 92116, 92117, 92118, 92119, 92120, 92121, 92122, 92123, 92124, 92126, 92127, 92128, 92129, 92130, 92131, 92132, 92133, 92134, 92135, 92136, 92137, 92138, 92139, 92140, 92142, 92143, 92145, 92147, 92149, 92150, 92152, 92153, 92154, 92155, 92158, 92159, 92160, 92161, 92162, 92163, 92164, 92165, 92166, 92167, 92168, 92169, 92170, 92171, 92172, 92173, 92174, 92175, 92176, 92177, 92178, 92179, 92182, 92184, 92186, 92187, 92190, 92191, 92192, 92193, 92194, 92195, 92196, 92197, 92198, 92199

You can next use the same zip codes to search for apartments and houses to rent at www.MyNewPlace.com. Then go to google maps and type in one of the addresses you found for an apartment, zoom in and then use the little yellow Google man to walk around the neighborhood. It gives a pretty nice visual.

Another choice of states would be Arizona. Do a Monster search on any of these zip codes. There are so many healthcare openings there.

    It is cheaper in the central valley with housing that costs about half what it does on the coast. Salaries are lower but more than offset by the reduced costs of living.

    If you want somewhere warm move to Florida. California does have a Winter season. While most coastal population centers rarely get snow it still gets quite cold in the Winter, especially the northern portion.

    Watch some of this years Rose Parade from "sunny" southern California. Although the sun is out you will see that everyone is bundled up in their heavy Winter coats because the temperature is probably in the high 30’s / low 40’s. That may sound like short sleeve weather to you now, but after your first Winter here you’ll freeze the following year just like all the rest of us.

    Also consider that California has the second highest unemployment rate in the country. Jobs are almost non existent. While health care workers are not as affected as other careers still it could take months for you to find a job. If you do come here bring LOTS of money to live on, and an open ended round trip ticket for when the money runs out.
