Real-estate is high in the Mountains. With the exception of gas. Cost of living isn't bad. Lots of lakes and dams around here too.

drewpy, you're from ohio, who cares as long as its warm.

SC is where I want to end up. charlston is a nice place.

as far as cost of living and such you wont see that much difference. Real estate tends to be a little more expensive down there for the same type of lot you'd buy up in the OH, especially the closer you get to the big drink.

I'll be looking into the job market as well as the cost of living. Since I'm an east coast person, sc or nc would be where I will start my search

what he said... from what i heard the job market in the sc and nc area is hot for biology jobs, and the nice thing about my schools program is the water research, all of the large cities have a water treatmen program/ facility and i have been running those tests for the last two years in our schools lab....

Eastern tennesee has relativly low real estate prices maybe not as low as ohio. cost of living is quite reasonable but My wife who graduated about a year ago has had a difficult time finding a job so I would certainly try to get hte jobs before I moved you don't want to come down here buy a house and end up working in restraunts which is the prevelant job here. With a science background there is the TVA which is a huge employer in the region so yeah you should definitly consider moving here east tn, west NC, north GA rocks.

Might also want to check with EPA http://www.epa.gov/region8/water/. The only things Denver has to offer is low humidity and twisty roads.

well not a particularly useful one her bachelors is in history, but she will be getting her masters this spring in public administration. She did end up finding a decent job this past summer at the chattanooga nature center so there is oppurtunity in the area for people who have skills and can think outside the box.
