I definitely agree with that.

Agreed. Aside from New Yorkers and teenagers, most people don't think New York is the be-all, end-all place to live. It is no doubt a great town, but it's hardly the place most of us would want to live.

I started a thread about the differences and similiarities between Dallas and Houston awhile back

I have been to Dallas but never to Houston. Care to share the differences?

Should i move to dallas or houston?

It looks to me as if the thread you started has five pages of people doing just that. I doubt I'd be able to add anything substantial to what's already been written.

I think it's best you visit Houston if you want to know the differences. There are many to list and I think that thread has exhausted them.

Well from the answers that I got... it seems to me they are more similiar than different

The only recognizable differences that I notice is that the threads posters think people in Dallas are snottier and that Houston doesnt have zoning

Houston and Dallas are very much alike, but Houston has milder winters, is greener, and closer to the coast/beach. For some people, this is a dealbreaker for Dallas I suppose.

Houston's economy/housing sector is doing better than Miami and Phoenix right now, so that may explain it. Also, IMO Houston offers a lot more culturally than Phoenix, and perhaps some people would rather not live in the desert.

Really? I just read through all five pages and got more than that from it. Here's the gist of what I read:

Houston is organic, vibrant and cosmopolitan. Dallas is manufactured, plastic and very "Texas."

Don't get me wrong, I like both cities, but you have to admit those two brief descriptions are very different. Now here are their similarities: size, located in Texas, amiable people, similar economies.

I voted Phoenix as a top choice out of those cities. But Las Vegas and Miami are close behind. I wouldn't mind living in Los Angeles or Houston either.
