This is like comparing Plano to San Diego.

I don't think I need to add anything else. Austin by a mile, except for the weather.

Ehhh.....
This is an absurd comparison - basically comparing a neighborhood to a city. Then again, if "gyms" is part of somebody's relocation criteria, I'm guessing they can't be too serious about the "jobs" or "affordability" thing. There's a reason that the average house price in Irvine is over $750,000 and is barely $300,000 in Austin, and it isn't Southern California's booming, efficient economy......

I hate to be "that guy", but more than likely, it's just more Texas hate that we typically see on City-Data. Even Austin doesn't get the same kind of respect as ANY town in California.

Let's be honest, NO suburban town should be that much favored (if favored at all) over a major city.

And Garland and Spring are short drives from Dallas and Houston, respectively.

They're still suburbs.
