I really like DC. IMO, the weather is better than NY, you have easy flights to Europe and Africa, there are loads of museums, an ok food scene, though maybe not quite what some of the other cities have. I don’t have/didn’t have kids there so if that’s a consideration, I’m largely unhelpful though I’d argue your money is going to stretch more in Nashville or Austin or Atlanta than NYC or DC if kids are involved. (I haven’t lived in all of those places but have lived in DC, NYC, and spent looong stretches of time in Atlanta and Austin)

Depends. Same salary for each place or does it differ?

Atl or DC then if you can deal with hot summers. NYC has a great ton to do but you live in a dirty city in a 10 by 20 studio. Fun to enjoy the city but I think most folks end up at a stage in life where they want more living space

I’ve spend a lot of time in Nashville and love it but think it would get old. Personally wouldn’t do NYC. I did live in DC and loved it while there. Only downside is that people constantly move away from there. Wouldn’t do Atlanta, because.. Atlanta. I would pick Austin.

NYC is awful imo - lived there until COVID hit and don’t plan on going back

DC or Nashville probably. ATL is large but doesn’t have the public transit infrastructure to support. It’s a nightmare. NYC has the infrastructure but highest COL. Austin is a little too granola for my personality. Nothing against it though. Nashville lacks infrastructure but moderate COL relative to the rest of the list. Also is a boom town rn. DC has good public transit from cheaper burbs to pretty much anywhere.

These are all sooo different lol do you like seasons or warm/hot weather year round?

Vote for DC

DC. I live in Nashville, and for the right opportunity would go to DC. They have great public transportation. From the time I’ve spent there, it seems like cost of living is a little high, but I really like the city and surrounding neighborhoods. Nashville has terrible (practically none) public transportation, high rent prices, and bad traffic, since the infrastructure was not built for the current number of people. I’ve lived here most of my life, and if I didn’t have a good job outside of downtown I would move in a second. Personally, I am not a fan of Atlanta due to the traffic, and big cities like NYC don’t appeal to me. I don’t know anything about Austin.

I’m from Nashville and I think it’s pretty overrated honestly. Some suburbs have good schools though if you have kids, but I’m sure that’s the same for anywhere

I would pick NYC but actually live outside of Manhattan (or even Jersey). I would want all the fun NYC has to offer but wouldn’t want to live in those crazy small apartments

ATL! Great energy, low cost of living, you can get anywhere from there, great people.
