I'm a 23 year old female currently living in philly. My best friend and i are considering moving to dallas or houstin this fall for possible school opportunities. We both are college grads and are looking to rent an apartment or townhome in a fun, young area that doesn't have to much of a cooped up city feel. We have a dog and definatly enjoy the outdoors but still want to have easy access to bars, restraunts, movies theaters, sports parks etc. Any advise on which city is the better living area or any areas in the citys that sound like what we are looking for would be much appreciated. I've never been to either city and am at a loss as to were would be the best place to live or even to start looking! thanks

I'd move to Dallas unless you like REALLY hot and humid weather.

Dallas. But I'd make sure to post the same question on the Cleveland forum before you move. You'll definitely want to hear what they have to say.

Try houston, cost of livivng is cheaper than dallas, houston isn't really feeling the recession as bad as the rest of the country and the city is growing. Dallas is a country city, if that makes sense houston is a city made for everyone and every walk of life, downtown houston is getting better its getting a cross between new orleans and 6th street. To move to stl? Pffft!!! Dallas and houston makes stl look like welfare case and cleveland, texas is a hot spot right now. But please no stl!! Nor cleveland lol wow

Houston is nice, you must like HOT sticky humid Summer's worst than Dallas.
Dallas has a lot of things to offer young people, focus on uptown, lakewood area to live. Even Addison for what you asking for as to bars, night life and such. If you focus on uptown you have most everything in walking distance.

My biggest advise is to come and visit both places first. And also don't narrow down to Dallas or Houston...why not Austin, San Antonio....where are you planning on going to school???

Move to Miami.

Seriously though pick whatever city you find the highest paying job in. Your not moving without having a job first are you?
