I lived in D.C. for 5+ years, it's a great city with tons of amenities. It doesn't get too cold there but humid AF. Booze Allen is great for tech, along with the other big companies based out there. Good if you want to go into govt/public

Austin but very expensive. SD is second choice.

I just moved from San Diego. It is definitely more expensive than Austin. But it’s beautiful!

like

LA and San Diego are best weather wise, but more tech growth ops in Austin right now

Don't move to DC if rainy and cold would bother you (also DC sucks, speaking from my personal experience living there). I lived in SD and really liked it, but it's expensive and CA taxes are ridiculous, so I'd choose Austin.

I am not trying to say it’s the worst place ever. If you have family/great friend group there, love your job, it is a large metro area where you can enjoy for sure. My commentary was geared towards if someone has the choice to live essentially anywhere in the US without a family/friend group tie yet, then DC isn’t really the preferable choice

Move to South Florida. We have plenty of opportunities.
