I agree that California has more to offer but it usually costs more as well. DFW doesn't offer as much scenery or entertainment. As they say, you get what you pay for. People moving here are usually looking for jobs, affordable housing and schools.

I hear Oakland is top rated - much higher than Collin County....

^^^This. I'm just back from a trip to Portland OR, which is the polar opposite of DFW in almost every way imaginable. In some ways that's great, in others notsomuch. I love it there, but that's me, and there are things about it which are frustrating to me anyway.

Everybody prioritizes items differently. My wife hates snow and cold, so that makes DFW more attractive in that regard. I love Oregon's scenic beauty, which is something DFW generally lacks. I like driving faster than 55 on the roads, so don't get me started on Portland drivers. I prefer eclectic shops and restaurants to chains...point to Portland. And so on.

Every place is different, and "top places to live" vary depending on what you value. Once you get beyond some basics (generally low crime, say), it's a very individual choice.
