Haha I dont think the chamber of commerce will be using this as a ringing endorsement.http://img.amwx.us/public/style_emoticons/default/whistle.gif (broken link)

If I had no family ties to Texas and could afford the New England cost of living, I would choose to live in Boston. Boston has so much history and character. I love the culture there.
New York and Chicago are just too crowded for me. I've never been to Philadelphia so I can't comment on it. My only other complaint about these northern cities are how cold they get. I hate the cold.


However, with the cards I have been dealt, I choose the city I currently live in, Dallas. It's big but not too crowded, there's plenty to see and do, and I actually don't mind the summers.

The COL in NEw England is higher than Texas but wages are also higher than they are in Texas which helps to offset costs and places are closer together even in more rural areas so you don't have to drive as far.

I chose Houston because of the weather, affordability, and because it is a huge metro with tons to do.
