How about California? Great weather, you can ski and surf on the same day!

Just kidding. But, it may be less culture shock than moving to Texas ;)

My wife is from Cali. That's where I met her. I was travelling there for business 4-5 times a year so had a small circle of friends there and she was a friend of a friend. Her whole family has left Cali now though. They went to Nevada and Texas. So I don't think we will be moving to Cali but OC and San Diego are great places to visit.
