I really like the Fort Worth area (south of I-20). The homes are nice and the people are nice. I moved down ther from Gary, IN. I ran into some discrimination in the north Dallas area (at my job) that didn't sit well, but the Fort Worth area is really nice. I am currently seeking a different job in the area. The commute to Dallas can be 1-2 hours depending on traffic, the TRE and Dart are great, but the TRE in Fort Worth only runs till about 11pm and doesn't run on Sunday's.

Default Have you looked into Grand Prairie???

Grand Prairie has a small town atmosphere and is right in between Dallas and Fort Worth, both of each have plenty of job opportunities. There are also plenty of affordable homes, especially north of I-20. Also, the population there is very diverse. Hope this helps!!!

twosunkiss, I think you'l find what you're looking for in the Dallas/Forth Worth metroplex (if you still want out of LA). There is much to like and diversity won't be an issue in most places here. I'd suggest a trip out first to check it out for yourselves, however. That's a big time major move and alot to consider.
Best of luck to you.
