quality and life and cost of living are entirely different concepts. they don't go hand in hand. the more expensive places generally have better quality of life - that's why they're more expensive.

Greater Houston can actually be considered its own unique region. But for the purposes of this thread, it is South Texas. After all, it is in the southern portion of the state.
