Should I move for an internship?

I am a Music Recording and Technology student at a school in Ohio, and as part of my requirements I will need to do an internship in about a year, maybe less if I do it over the summer. The professor in charge of the program (also the only professor that teaches recording classes) can provide an internship at their own studio if I don't find one elsewhere, which is what most people seem to do. I'd like to avoid doing that, as I feel I can have a more well rounded experience if I go somewhere else. After all, I have already taken 2 years of classes with this professor. My main question is, is it a good idea to look for an internship in a place that's far away enough for me to have to move? Right now I'm located halfway between Cleveland and Pittsburgh, and far enough away that if I get an internship in either of those places, I'd have to move. I'm also located approximately halfway between Chicago and NYC. I'm really excited about the potential opportunities that I have, but am I being realistic when I plan to move for an internship?

If there is only 1 option where you are, than you’ll likely have to go somewhere with more opportunities. But be realistic about finances/ have an actual source
Of income arranged

At least, my friend, you do have something. For example, in my town, there is no chance of such an internship. I'll be going to another town for better opportunities.
