Houston may be a great destination for those who want a big city that is warm.

If you want to experience life in a big city, then there are a few options located across the country. These can be great destinations if you prefer the hustle and bustle lifestyle in a metro area compared to a suburb or the countryside. If you can figure out what type of big city you enjoy, you may feel right at home moving into one of these major areas located throughout the country.

New York City
By far the biggest city in the country, New York City has just about everything you could want. If you are looking for a job, there's a sizable number of industries in the city that caters to the more than 8 million people in the five boroughs. It is also easy to find a place to live that suits you. If you want a busy lifestyle all of the time, moving to Manhattan may be a good plan. However, if you want an opportunity for downtime, Brooklyn or Queens may give you those options. The city is as diverse as they come, and it shows in the city's culture, food and everyday life.

Los Angeles
If you are looking for warmer climate, then heading out to a major metropolis on the West Coast may be a good idea. Los Angeles has approximately half as many people as New York City, but it is still a great option for those who want to hang out in a large city. The city is also quite diverse, like New York, but its food is also heavily influenced by Asian and Hispanic cultures. However, the public transportation system is not as comprehensive, so moving here may be better for those with cars or other modes of transportation.

Chicago
The Windy City may be a great option if you want to be in a city that has four seasons, and is still full of stuff to do year-round. The city has approximately 2.7 million people, and plenty of indoor and outdoor activities throughout the year. Whether you like sports, the arts or just enjoying the outdoors, there are plenty of options you can take advantage of to ensure you enjoy this city to its fullest. It has a sizable public transportation system, which can make traveling around the city a bit easier.

Houston
If Texas is more of your speed, then you can certainly head to a spot with plenty of people. Houston may be a good place for those who love hot and humid climates. The city is more driver friendly than for those who like to take public transit, but it may be beneficial to rely on both public and personal transportation from time-to-time. Houston is full of stuff to do, and is also a short drive from the Gulf Coast, as it is less than one hour from Galveston. The city has many higher education institutions, as well as great parks and places to enjoy the outdoors.

Philadelphia
If the Mid Atlantic is where you want to be, it may benefit you to head to Philadelphia. The city is filled with history, and also has varied weather throughout the year. The more than 1.5 million people who live in the city make it a busy area, which may be perfect for those who enjoy a densely populated area. There are also plenty of things to do in the city, with many different sports teams and places to take part in many different arts, historical and recreational activities.
