Houston Texas all the way. So much to do, cheap living costs even in the nice areas and booming job market. Plus there’s great schools like University of Houston and Lone Star Community. There’s tons of foodies and I find people in Houston tend to be very open minded and liberal, despite what some people may say about Texas. Oh, and the beach is only a drive down 45. It’s the best city I’ve been to (and I do a lot of traveling, Houston also has an international airport!) and I always recommend people to move here! Go Cougs!
