Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
We have just about every climate there is, depending on time of year, in some areas.
Consider crime statistics.
Consider employement availabilities.
Consider type of Real Estate market, in the area you're interested in.
Consider schools and all that 'homey' stuff, if applicable.
'Difficulties' is hard to address without knowing more of your background than you might be willing to post.
What age group do you fit in?
Certain areas have a higher cost of living than do others and generally speaking housing costs and income potential are tied to that.
There is more...depending on what you are comfortable releasing.
And wow, what a complicated question to answer. I'll answer for Vegas -- look out for terrible drivers, drunk drivers, flash floods, cheap buffets with lousy food, drunk drivers, 110F summers, drunk drivers, and people wondering how you could live in Vegas because they've never been away from the Strip.
Okay, I've done my part. :)
Alexx: give us a bit more info, okay? We don't have a lot to go on here, and really, the US is a HUGE continent. It would be like the whole of Europe, for someone from here to move there with no idea which country....
You need soem money and a job to start. Depending where you decide to settle and when the job starts but I'd say $5-10,000 is a minimum. Unless you plan on living on really bad neighborhoods, I wouldn't worry about crime; it's just like anywhere else. Do you already have the visa or...?
and a job to start
Yes, people will tend to respect you more right from the start if you have a good job. If you spend too much time without working, employers might automatically think that nobody will hire you, and they won't want to take a chance.
Ideally, you should know what city you're going to, and have at least two or three companies that are interested in you.
Pardon me... since when is the US a continent?
Canadians and Mexicans, plus those with a accurate sense of world geography would take exception to that statement.
Second time in a month I have seen a post with that mis-statement.
Other than that piece of business... the US is a wonderful place. Do your research, maybe find some friends or family that already live in the US, it will make your transition easier. Like everywhere else, you will have to start at the bottom and work your way up as you get a wider network of friends and experience.
Because you're never too old to learn, the continent of Norteamérica is 24,680,331 square kilometres, and Canada is the largest country.
Canada - 9,970,610 square kilometres
United States - 9,809,431 square kilometres
Greenland - 2,175,600 square kilometres
Mexico - 1,972,545 square kilometres
one of the very few cases where size doesn't matter :)

I think you are refering Green Card lottery ,i dont know the odds of it but anyway Best of Luck ...
I just checked some website which says the quota for greencard lottery is 50,000 every year but the state department receives closely 7 million applications every year ,so its a 0.7% chance of winning!.
I have to say it not that bad as a real world money lottery but still some tough odd :)
I'd rather try to get into Canada.
Oh wait, that was off-topic. I think a lot of money helps or having supportive relatives already in the US.
(PS - The Aladdin buffet is above average, as is Paris & Bellagio. Still waiting to try the new one at The Mirage. The lousy stuff I'm talking about is Circus-Circusish. Somewhere the food is cheap and it's obvious why)
