Yet Dallas has a lot more to do minus the amazing state parks and preserves you will find in central Texas.

I live in both Cities....the zip for 360 and 2222 is 78730. One of the best school districts is very close to that location. Plenty of housing options in your price range as well.

Mostly due to the frendliness of the people. Nearly everyone I've met who moved down to Austin from Dallas reports that people in central Texas are much, much more approachable, easier to get to know and make friends with.

not true. Any given house within a certain distance to downtown Austin - on flat land - costs the same as any given house - on flat land -within that same distance to downtown Dallas.

How much does ocean beach front property cost in Dallas? - invalid question - can't answer it...

How much does hill country property cost in Dallas?

Where did you see or meet these "friendly" people from Austin?

I've also heard people living in Austin that were previously from Dallas say that Austin is way better. I never understood that myself

Most people say Austin is way more open, friendly, and less pretentious. I personally think people in the Metroplex are very nice too. I guess its all personal experience and making generalizations is wrong in any scenario.
