Easiest Southern market with no ties?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jun 19, 2015 4:17 am

Not from America, have scattered ties in various cities around the country and I plan on blanketing all of those markets with mass mails but there is really no place in the country I would call home and no where in particular I want to be. I want to go to the south, mostly for the weather (and I'm a sucker for southern charm), but I have nada ties. What are the cities I should be looking at that are more open to taking someone like me?

LA is the least insular nice-weather market by a long mile.

DC is about a three hour drive from the South, and its far and away the least insular market anywhere nearby. Houston, followed by Dallas, is probably the next least insular, although there's a pretty big gap between DC and TX, and TX is hard to crack without ties. Everything else ranges from "insular" to "good ole boys club."

This is a good answer. Really the honest answer is everywhere in the South is ties sensitive, and a narrative of good weather+ want Southern charm, without anything more, is a good recipe for striking out
