Where do New Yorkers most want to settle?
This is the time of year when some of us residents of the northern United States wish to live somewhere else. Winter is not our favorite time of year. We could do without snow, ice, cold, etc.
But there are many reasons we stay, including our job, it’s where our family lives, and we love the Northeastern United States for all other seasons of the year. We deal with far fewer extreme weather issues than many parts of the country.
My Top Picks for Leaving New York for Another State or Country
But if you could move anywhere else, where would it be? In the US I would choose somewhere in the Carolinas or the Southwest like Utah, Arizona or New Mexico.
If I could leave the country, my choice might be Scotland. I’ve been there a few times touring the country, which is amazing. Maybe as a second choice I would choose the south of France.
Recently Guide to family destinations conducted a survey of 3,000 families and asked them where they would move if they had the chance. Nationally, most families would move to the United States in Florida, and the most chosen global destination is the United Kingdom.
