    I'm looking to move to America with some friends, what is the best place to live in America in your opinion?

    By best, I don't necessarily mean the cheapest.

    Also, what processes (besides getting a Visa) will I have to complete to be able to legally live in America.

    I guess would ask:

    Do you care for the beach/ocean? Do you like snow?

    What kind of city vibe do you like? Big/small/art/politcal/nightlife?

    What is your budget?

    Are you going to school?

    What do you do/will do for work?

    Do you want to own a car? Public transportation?

    I have to agree with [DT].

    It's only best to move if you know that it will be beneficial to you. That is, in terms of an education.

    Isn't it pretty tough to move here? I think its going to be more than just a decision that you decide to make. You've got a ton of forms to fill out, have to pass a test pertaining to our history, and then you're still not garunteed entry.

    To answer your question... Not Ohio.

    If you want snow, come to NH! It's fairly cheap and it's very conservative.

    Levesque is right. If you plan to move to the US you and your friends are probably going to have to apply for US citizenship.

    I am well aware that it will take a lot of work.

    I am only 18 at the moment but money is far from an issue as I have a high paying job.

    I currently work in direct marketing, but I would prefer to go to University and hopefully get a job as a programmer.

    EDIT: Thanks for the link Syntax.

    You can work here with a green card and all that. You speak English, so they'll be nice to you. ;)

    I've had a few friends who have been to the states and they say you guys give them free food/beer just for asking for it with an English accent :lol:

    Is this true?

    never actually understood why you call it that. there is a difference between college and university.
