Relocating: Phoenix, Houston, or Dallas

Jump to last reply

I currently live in the Northeast and I'm looking to relocate. I'm looking for a strong economy. I'm moving without a job lined up, so I want a place where I can find a job quickly. I'm also looking for a place where I can live as a non-driver. I don't drive (medical reasons, will never be able to drive). And I want a low cost of living. I've narrowed it down to these 3 cities and I'm looking for advice.

Phoenix is my dream city. But the unemployment rate (just below 7%) is the highest out of the 3 cities I listed. However, the unemployment rate is much lower in Phoenix compared to where I currently live. I also prefer a desert climate, so Phoenix wins in that category. Phoenix has the light rail. They also have buses on all the arterial streets that run every 15 or 30 minutes.

Houston has the strongest economy. The current unemployment rate is just below 6%. They also have a lot of jobs in my field. Like I said, I prefer a desert climate. But I wouldn't mind Houston's humid climate either. My biggest thing is wanting a warm climate.

Dallas: At 6.3% unemployment, the economy is somewhere between Houston and Phoenix.

As far as the Texas cities are concerned, Dallas has a better rail system. But it appears Houston has the better bus system.
