This thread is marked as being about California

Hi there

Was considering moving to Boston, now seriously thinking of moving to California for the better weather! I'm wondering if anyone out there has made the big move, and what advice would you give us?

We're a family of 6. Childrens ages 14, 12, 9 and 5

I am a native Californian. The weather is very good here, but you pay for it with crowded cities, expensive housing and high taxes.

Respectfully, if I were raising four school age children, I'd consider Arizona (outside city of Phoenix area.) The housing is quite cheaper, the school systems are not overrun, quality of life is good and California is one day's car drive or a one hour airline flight away.

Best of luck on your move.

Thanks for the tip. I'll bear that in mind!
