Dallas or Houston. Can't decide!

Jump to last reply

I am thinking about relocating to either Dallas or Houston in the not too distant future. I like Texas because of the warmer weather (humid or dry doesn't matter) and the lower cost of real estate. I live in DC area where it is too cold in the winter, very expensive real estate and traffic is a disaster! I know that traffic in Dallas or Houston is just slightly better but I like the fact that TxDot is building freeways, tollways and nice interchanges all the time is wonderful. At least they are doing something about it in Texas all the time. I feel like the government in Texas value the time of their people.

From what I already researched, I think I may like Houston better because it's a more mature/divers city and has more to offer + the proximity to beaches. Dallas has a lot of lakes and seems to have a little more "newer" feel to it. I also prefer Houston more because the climate in Houston supports more verities of palm trees (which I really like).

Still I am having difficult time choosing. I work in the computer IT field and it seems like Dallas have a little more opportunities than Houston.

Any input will be appreciated.
