I think Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, RDU, and DC would all be fine choices. Although RDU and Nashville are relatively lacking in the airport front.

DC could be in his footprint, but it might not. It certainly isn't unreasonable choice given his criteria.
Nashville and RDU are just fine on the airport front.

They're fine, but I don't think they'd be great if you're taking frequent trips to non-hub cities in the southeast. Charlotte, Atlanta, and DC would all offer directs to any city in the region, but Nashville and RDU wouldn't.

You're already moving to the southeast because the job requires it.  Live, at least at the start, wherever will make your job easiest and free up the most of your own time.
That would be Macon, GA.

I'm not a huge fan of Atlanta but I won't rule it out because the majority of my accounts would be in the Atlanta area.

The cost of living in RDU is so much cheaper than ATL.  I could get a much bigger & nicer house in RDU.

It's an intetesting question. Some of the biggest considerations for me would be: Atlanta for culture and metropolitan stuff. New Orleans for CULTURE. Some nice Florida place like West Palm because it's not the South and beaches.

I have nothing against The South. Great people. I just never really fit in.

I will be gone during the week most of the time. So the important part is that we find someplace my wife and daughter will like. I feel like the smaller cites would be more laid back than the bigger cities.

Also, will likely travel to India and Manila a few times a year, so I anticipate having plenty of airline miles to take trips to get our fair amount of culture.

Charleston and savannah are both nice and have small but adequate airports. I spend a lot of time in both for work. Asheville, NC is my sleeper pick though.

New Orleans is another acceptable answer

I think Miami is the US city that's most like a city in a foreign country. And has by far the craziest drivers.

I like Miami but I don't have much of a desire to live there.  The summers in New Orleans would be brutal.

I will check out Asheville and Charleston. Savannah is already in the running.

Asheville has a strong community vibe. And some hippies.

Asheville would have a shitty airport (but would be great otherwise)

Cost of living is on the high side in Asheville. Cool area though.
