For me, this is an easy choice: San Diego. Better weather, better scenery, the beaches, better golf courses and more to do outside within a reasonable drive.

Dallas is this big thing out in the middle of nowhere, with atrocious weather. What Dallas does have to offer can easily be found in most major cities. No offense to anyone who likes it, but it's seriously not my thing.
San Diego has the weather, mountains, and ocean going for it. Crying shame it's in California.

I choose San Diego simply because of geography. I don't like Dallas location being situated on a prairie. Dallas as a city packs a bigger punch. In San Diego 400k will get you very little sq ft on a home as apposed to Dallas where you can get half a mansion. Living close to the ocean is therapeutic for me, therefore I choose San Diego. Trust me the ocean and the weather are the only reasons. I see San Diego only as a distant third leg of CA far behind LA and SF. Now if this was Houston vs San Diego I would vote Houston with out a second thought.

Things to do: San Diego

Shopping: Dallas

Scenery: San Diego

Economy: Dallas

Schools: I dont know.

Universities: San Diego

Climate (Yes I know Dallas weather sucks ): San Diego

Public Transit and airport: Dallas for the airport, SD for public transit(I think)

Traffic: San Diego has less

Suburbs: Tied. They both have nice suburbs. I think Northern San Diego County is nicer overall than any suburban swath of the Dallas Area but Im not sure.

Better Location: Better location for what? For a shipping company Dallas, for a natural setting San Diego--SD is also a 90 minute drive from Los Angeles.

Cultural Scene: Dallas for the arts, San Diego for nightlife

Crime/Safety: I dont know

Better Vibe: San Diego

The one you choose: They both have strengths that I like very much but I think I would prefer San Diego.

Where else would a place like SD be but California? Nowhere else in the country has the weather, mountain and ocean combination found here.

It was more of a social/political comment.

You do realise there's more to California than LA and San Francisco? I'm tired of this negative attitude towards our state. If you drove all around the state you'd see that there is truly something for everyone.

San Diego isn't probably a paradise.
But it is definitely one of the world most beautiful cities.
Dallas is the waiting room for the Hell... as Las Vegas, Houston, Phoenix, Atlanta and almost every cities in the Sun Belt/Bible Belt.
Honestly, I think I would prefer living in Baghdad.
Such cities represent the worst of the worst of the worst of USA.
