So I've been living in Austin, TX for 3 years and there is alot about the lifestyle and cost of living to fall in love with here but I miss a certain soul and sense of educated (self- or otherwise) black consciousness that finds support and thrives alongside the progressive majority sense of consciousness that exists in a bike-friendly, organic/local-oriented, active, artistic city like Austin. I am also refusing to experience another triple digit degree summer in Texas. I am brainstorming where July 2013 will and considering the West Coast and the beach culture of Oakland, CA or the sustainable and puff-friendly towns of Colorado. But being a Georgia native, I am reconsidering the East Coast which provides for more diverse climates across tighter spaces. Anyone have any recommendations on cities to relocate to to satisfy this wanderlust? Appreciate it FB!
The Bay Area is a cool place to be if you want something happening everyday. Born and raised, I know there is a lot of things to do, different people, and groups to join. Work our everything before moving over because jobs are really hard to come by these days, especially if you do not have a car (it's a deal breaker even if you plan to use public transportation). Just know that San Francisco and Richmond are 50-60 degrees year round so prepare to have a jackets if you visit while Oakland, Berkeley, and everyone else (particularly in Spring/Summer) are in 70+ degree weather. The water in the area are known for sharks to visit so be careful. Hm...someone add to this please.
