Let's take up a collection to buy him a ticket.

Cost of living (for the size of the city and economy) alone is a major factor in me picking Dallas. I'd rather have some money in my bank than worry about it while I enjoy the scenery. That said, if I make it big some day, I'd be happy to live in San Diego

Why is cost of living not a category in the OP? Any negligible differences not in Dallas's favor (climate, natural attractions) is easily made with the COL.

Dallas has a lot more to offer when you balance those things out,

San Diego has the weather, mountains, and ocean going for it
. Crying shame it's in California.
And San Diego has even less going for it when you discount those stuff, which you have to pay too much for anyways.

It's a pretty bland city apart from nature and climate. It's like the Honolulu of the continental US.

Except with somewhat cold of an ocean and mostly dry scenery.

I say Dallas. If it was LA or San Fran I would have voted against Dallas.

Yeah but the point is that it still has more than Dallas due to the Ocean and nature around it.
It has a huge zoo, sea world, a great downtown, a cool little Italy, La Jolla which is one of the nicest neighborhoods in the country and has a really cute downtown, and it was a WAAAAY better climate. What does Dallas have that is desirable that San Diego doesn't have to a certain extent...and don't say uptown because although that area is nice most cities have somewhat trendy areas such as uptown, that would be San Diego's gaslight district.

Don't get me wrong, it is a really nice city and if I had to live in Texas I would probably choose Dallas; but what the other poster said, which I was reiterating, was right. Dallas is a pretty basic large American city and a lot of good attributes that dallas has can be found in most big cities across the USA. San Diego on the other hand has things that a lot of big US cities don't have such as nice beaches, great nature and a great marine life, great year round weather, and a zoo that is constantly rated the number 1 zoo in the USA.

I thought San Diego would blow Dallas out of the water. Not that Dallas is terrible, it's just that San Diego is arguably one of the best cities in the entire country.
