Ah, I was wondering about North Carolina. From a Pennsylvanian perspective, it seems like everyone is moving to there and Georgia. This might be East Coast bias.

Sarcasm aside, West Virginia is unironically a great place to move if you're looking for a place to settle once you're retired or if you're bringing a job with you, very beautiful and affordable, not so good if you're looking for a job once you move though.

These trends can be easily explained by comparing housing policies in California and Texas. Austin's skyline is full of cranes, building new office buildings and apartment buildings, while its suburbs continue to grow. San Francisco, meanwhile, has its city councilmembers actively working to downzone their districts. People will move to where they can afford to live.
