If you are planning to move, it is important to assess the state in different aspects. Take, for example, new Mexico. On the one hand, the state is famous for its incredibly rich cultural history, delicious chili, places the filming of the series “breaking bad” and the stunning Museum of Georgia O’keeffe. In addition, it is a wonderful place to live with a limited budget, the annual costs are almost $ 7,000 below the national average. On the other hand, in new Mexico, inhabits the so-called “wasp-the tarantula hawk”, which brings together the names of three terrifying predators in the one and the many (or threatening) so that government officials made her insects of the state.

To take another example, this time on the opposite end of the budget spectrum. New York is filled with matchless entertainment, multiple wineries and its own fascinating history from Montauk to Massapequa. But the index of the minimum subsistence level props ceiling, and the only cost of housing is as high as 23,000 dollars a year, which is twice more than the national average. In addition, according to the newspaper, in new York, too, there is creation, which is not easy to live with: it’s new Yorkers.

Because the decision about where to live, a simple question — and actually very subjective to compare Broadway with the old town Albuquerque — publishing considered the cost of living in each state. In some States, the costs are so high that you can start to consider the wasp-the tarantula hawk as a friendly addition to the neighborhood.
