The country is as large as it is diverse. The northeastern corner, referred to as New England, is home to large population centers. Cities such as New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Boston offer strong markets, cultural diversity, and countless activities. Enjoy snow in the winter and cool down during the hot summers at the beach resorts.
Looking for a warmer climate with a smaller population density? Consider any of the Southeastern states. Many states border the ocean and offer miles of pristine beaches and barrier islands. Although primarily rural, larger cities like Charlotte, Atlanta and Miami offer a full complement of cultural possibilities.
Another vast region to consider when moving to the USA is the Midwestern region. Nicknamed America’s “Heartland,” the terrain is flat, vast, and expansive and provides domestic and international foodstuffs. Agriculture, predominately corn and wheat, is the major industry. The Midwest is also home to America’s domestic oil production, primarily located in Texas.
America’s west coast also offers many favorable attributes for the emigrant. Large cities such as Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles offer employment and a wide array of cultural actives. Citrus groves and vineyards dot the California landscape in contrast to “Silicon Valley,” which is the country’s technology hub. The state of California alone accounts for 10% of the country’s GDP.
Regardless of where you decide to locate, you’re sure to be close to one of America’s National or State Parks. Construction and preservation for many of these parks began during the Great Depression of the 1930s. America’s parks receive millions of domestic and international visitors annually. A holiday spent at beautiful Yellowstone for example will provide a lifetime of memories.
America also offers many of the finest universities in the world. From the renowned “Ivy League” schools, including Harvard and Yale, to the many state-run institutions including MIT and UCLA, American universities produce many of the world’s leaders in medicine, science, and engineering.
America offers many benefits for someone considering relocating from the UK. Whether you’re seeking a change a climate, new scenery, or employment or educational opportunities, you’ll find it in the USA.
Research the immigration requirements, gather your documentation, and submit the required forms. Choose a reliable and experienced company for an enjoyable move.
