Hello everyone, my wife and I are planning to relocate in the near future to one of the cities (areas) mentioned in the title ( Phoenix, Nashville or Houston/Dallas).

We currently reside between Chicago and Milwaukee, right on the lake and were victims of the -40 windchill weather.

A little about myself,
23 year old
Recently married
Planning to have kids within the next 4-5 years
HATE HATE HATE the cold ( mostly the snow and ice)
HATE humidity ( early signs of breathing problems) but can deal with it way better than the cold
Nightlife not a HUGE factor
Enjoy traveling
Very outspoken

Car enthusiast ( I hate having a 7 year old car with rust on it already....)
Marine biology (Saltwater reef tank enthusiast)
LOVE the outdoors and all aspects of it, scenery is key

I have visited Phoenix, as a matter of fact we are going back at the end of next month, also visited TN ( Knoxville, Gatlinburg area) never Nashville, also never visited Houston OR Dallas.\

Both my wife and I work in the healthcare field (Pharmacy) but neither of us are limited to.

I have read some comparisons but I would like to get a fresh opinion on all of these.

Please if you have something to say, say it WITHOUT bias to one city.

Thank you everyone, and if I need to add anything else please let me know!

Phoenix seems like the best city for you and it's not close tbh. Houston would be an alternative since you are into Marine Biology.
