My husband is in the Air Force and we are probably going to be getting orders within the next year. He is going to apply for base of preference which means we have to come up with a base that we want to go to in order to fill out the app. If you live within about a 30 mile radius of an Air Force base, I'd love to hear from you!
I'd love to know about the city you live or work in and what it's like. I want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly. For example, where we live at right now is ok, but I wouldn't prefer to live where we are at. The base sucks, which doesn't really matter because I hardly ever go there anyway. The shopping is ok, but the really good shopping is in the big city area which is at least a 45 minute drive away. The school my daughter is going to is good though. The cost of living is pretty high.
What are the pros and cons about the city as far as housing choices, cost of living, schools, shopping choices, etc? How is the employment prospects where you live? (Especially for new grads) What do you like about the area, what don't you like? So, sell me on your city!
I've tried doing some research myself on some of these things, like going to citydata and stuff, but I can only get so much of a picture from doing that, and I really want to hear from some actual people that live there. Especially, people that are working as nurses:) Thanks everyone!
