Reasons to move to the USA

We'll Call You Back
Statue of Liberty

 

1. Diversity of environment

The USA is an enormous, continent-sized country, and its geography and culture reflect that. From golden beaches to snowy mountains, great lakes to vast sprawling desert plains, the natural beauty is incredible diverse. This diversity is reflected across the states – the cuisine, traditions and lifestyles differ enormously as you travel across the country.

2. Weather

Similarly, you can find weather to suit almost every taste in the USA. Generally, as you move further north, you will find pleasantly warm summers and very chilly winters, whereas the southern states enjoy hot summers and mild winters.  The Midwest is marked by variety across the seasons – perfect if you like to mix it up a bit, weather-wise. And that’s not even taking into account icy Alaska and tropical Hawai’i!

3. Career opportunities

America is an economic powerhouse, and lots of global companies call it home. Lots of these are willing to sponsor the right candidates for their work permits and visas. In the global workforce marketplace, Brits have the crucial advantage of being already fluent in “American”.

4. Living space

Once you get away from the big cities like New York, you will find a huge difference from Britain is the amount of living space. Did we already mention that the USA is huge? Texas alone is 3x as big as the UK, meaning that land (and therefore property) is more affordable – Americans enjoy twice as much living space than Europeans, on average.

5. Education

The school system in the USA takes some adjustment for British Expats, and a university education can be pricy compared to back home, but the states is home to some world-class learning establishments.

6. Cultural melting pot

A nation made of immigrants, there are over 200 nationalities living the United States. This diversity is reflected throughout, where generations of waves of migration have coalesced to create new and unique cultures and cuisines, like Southwestern, Tex-Mex flavours, or the influence of the French Caribbean in Louisiana.  

7. A Can-Do attitude

Americans pride themselves on their positivity. One of the country’s founding principles is that anyone can achieve what they work hard enough for. Whether this is ultimately the case, the American Dream certainly infuses the people with a confidence and self-belief that can be inspiring.
