Say you’re offered a job that pays $325K, and you can work anywhere within the U.S. (remote job & team with occasional travel to meet team). Where would you live and why? Obviously “it depends” just curious to see the range of responses from this group!

Northwest Indiana. Suburb of Chicago but get the benefit of low taxes/cost of living being in Indiana and the benefits of Chicago. Depending which one town in NWI you’re 25-40min drive with traffic into the loop. Lake Michigan shoreline with the Dunes national park. Also situated an easy 1-2 hr drive from beautiful southwest Michigan and it’s lakefront towns/wineries/distilleries. Good school districts and the state of Indiana is filled with great universities both public and private. Hidden gem forsure.

It really is perfect, just too expensive. Not surprised Amazon made it is second home. Was really hoping for it to stay a secret.

Miami/Fort Lauderdale area. Great weather, (relatively) low property prices, major airports and no state income tax.

Miami is too corrupt and overpriced. Besides the beach, there isn't much to do to enjoy nature with the lack of parks. And the beach is to be avoided at all costs during major holidays/spring break anyway.
