    make your own lists, then, jerks

    i feel like the deep south has some very real redeeming qualities in places if you know where to dig

    not so much as places to live as places to visit or hang for a bit

    thinking new hampshire is "cool as fuck" and that miami is "overrated" says a lot about a person

    FL panhandle beaches are far superior to any others in the state (just beach beauty that is). If you go outside of Destin and Panama City there are cool places. Allegiant just announced a direct flight to Destin which I will probably take advantage of for long weekends a few times this year once I get vaxxed. Already planned a week down there in July.

    I think youíre totally fine and that would really be my preferred choice. The only consideration for me was that I work for a big bank and half of the interviews were with people who literally have worked here as long as Iíve been alive. So ultimately going with the more formal option was safer.

    Kansas
    Missouri
    New Hampshire
    North Dakota
    Ohio
    Oklahoma
    South Dakota


    Every other state probably has something as cool though.
    I would rather be in the Black Hills than Miami, and the White Mountains in New Hampshire are exponentially more badass than the Keys.

    If you think NYC is full of posers, try Miami.

    FL bay beach > FL ocean beach feels like a bad take but I'm curious to learn more

    Yes, I finished my PhD in 2008, right as the economy was collapsing. I had 2 year post doc position in Maryland but no financial security thereafter and I had 2 kids. As I started my faculty job search I had geographic restrictions and several states I refused to apply for jobs in: OK, MS, AL, the Dokotas, AR; 18 months and >100 applications later I was offered a position in AL so I took it.

    I grew up in NC and then lived in DC/Boston for 10 years before moving back about 3 years ago. Itís far from a perfect state but it really suits me as Iíve gotten older. Cost of living is still very favorable, culinary scene is up and coming, solid employment options, plenty of outdoor recreation.

    There is no vaccine to prevent what you may catch from the other passengers that utilize that airline.

    I'm in sub-40 Florida now with easy access to some great birding so I'm not mad any more.

    nah man, they call that shit the Emerald Coast for a reason. sugar white sand, crystal clear water. the beaches on the Atlantic Coast get nicer as you go south, but some like Cocoa Beach are ugly as hell in comparison. Might as well be at a SC beach.

    "SC Beach"

    shudders

    Sometimes I feel like you people need to live where I do for a while and then you will be able to appreciate a trip to Myrtle Beach.

    I agree. There are some cool Atlantic coast spots, like Little and Big Talbot Islands state parks, Anastasia Island (I've only been to spots in the North), but they don't really measure up to St. George Island, or Ft. Pickens (Gulf Island National Seashore) on the Gulf in the pan handle.
    Birds are real.
