Atlanta. There are some really nice suburbs as well as nature surrounding it. If you want something closer to the Pacific, go with Northern California, but not San Francisco. It's at least a six hour drive further up the coast from San Francisco before you reach Oregon, and most of that coastline is beautiful. Something near Santa Rosa might be perfect if you still need a city nearby.

If you go to Miami, it’s not old at all.

I live in Huntington Beach atm. Surfing is great. Snorkeling is a bit sparse unless you go to Catalina island, but Orange County does have horses. I also do not have a car, and don't see the need of getting one if I can help it. We just came back from a month in Puerto Rico and the Virigin Islands. Would live on a boat if we could and travel to each island working from the boat if we could. I saw you were also in the Caribbean, perhaps that might be an option? I would also check out Oregon along the coast or just north of Marin County in California.

If you want to snorkel that much then you're probably looking at Florida, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands in the US. Other places (Texas, Mississippi) have fewer spots (Possum Kingdom State Park and Gulf Islands National Seashore, respectively). Socal is cool (Anacapa, Catalina and LaJolla) but cold.

Colorado. I love hiking and got the opportunity to visit Garden of The Gods and hike part of Devil's Backbone in 2017. I still can't get over it and want to go back so bad. The views are gorgeous and as long as you stay hydrated the low humidity is great bc I hate being super sweaty when hiking in summertime.

Nashville or Chattanooga. They both have everything but snorkeling, but you're only 6 hours from the beach by car or a 1.5 hour flight. Plus you're in a state with no income tax. If you're in Chattanooga you're close to some great kayaking/white water rafting on the Ocoee and Fiber is a public utility.

Was told I would be receiving an offer letter after having a call this morning with a company I interviewed at but still haven’t received the letter yet. Is it typical to not receive an offer letter immediately after being told I’m being offered the job? If so about how long should I allow to receive it? Only reason I’m wondering is because I’d like to give my current employer plenty of notice before I leave (3 weeks if I can)

We are going back to the office soon and still have a 20% salary reduction.
