Portland also has much more favorable weather compared to Houston. Summers and winters alike are both mild.

Former Californian here....

I love the Pacific NW. It is beautiful there! My father is from Portland and so I would go up there quite a bit. I also went to college in Seattle and lived there for 4 years. There are job related reasons I ended up in California, but I would love to move back to the Pacific NW.

I have a less than zero desire to move to anywhere in TX though. Flat, hot, humid and not my cup of tea. So take my recommendation with that in mind!

Dawn

It's called preference. If somebody prefers a different lifestyle than what you like, there is no need to bash him/her nor the city they are thinking about choosing. And seriously, what makes Houston that bad besides the flat land and the humidity?

But still his comment is not 100% true. There are areas in Texas that are hilly to mountainous like San Antonio and Austin.

True, but to be honest, who actually ever notices how flat Houston is. No one ever says how flat New York City is. Then again, New York never takes the slack for any of its flaws just because it is what it is. But because Houston isn't as popular, and because it's in Texas, so many people want to point out everything that's wrong with it and assume there's nothing great about it. Not you, Spade. Just people in general.

I live in Austin for a few more weeks. Its mostely flat, there are some hills. We are not talking about Austin though, we are talking about Houston. Maybe you guys should do what Im thinking about and take a look at Colorado.

Where is Austin flat? In the least sense? That's the Hill Country. There are so many steep roads that I almost lose myself.
