Which city would you pick if you were offered job making fairly decent $$$$? $82,000/yr. Factors that would weigh in on the decision would be cost of living, active singles social scene, quality of life.

So do you mean you have to live in Plano too? I would choose to work in Plano if I could live in a nice part of Dallas.

Not exactly batting with superlatives, but I would probably say Plano. At least you can hop on a plane an be somewhere quickly, and at $82K/yr, you are not exactly making "live large" cash anywhere outside of the rustbelt.

Charlotte for me....offers enough of what I want in a city and is in close proximity to beaches, mountains, and larger cities like Atlanta and DC.

You should rephrase this thread as Dallas vs Charlotte vs Phoenix. I was going to say WTH is Plano, then I looked it up and realized it was a suburb of Dallas.

With that being said, Phoenix > Dallas > Charlotte

Depends on what you like to do outside of work. If you're outdoorsy it's Phoenix/Charlotte > Plano.

Plano is a city of almost 300k and is in a different county than Dallas and headquarters many national and international companies.
Saying it is merely a suburb of Dallas demonstrates your lack of knowledge of the area.
However, you bring up the excellent point (however accidentally) that the state policies and nearby amenities/surrounding cities/areas should be considered.

With that in mind, zero income tax, the best airport of the three, the more international fare, better shopping, better cultural options, and in my opinion, better weather (this, of course, is personal) makes the Dallas area the winner.

As for outdoors, my neighbors/friends and I are outdoors 24/7/365.

Plano itself is always in some magazine as the best place for wealth building, healthy lifestyle, kids, schools, safety/crime...but you will pay for it $$$..
