Texas appears to continue to boom for the job market, for all of you Northeasterners looking for greener pastures.

Come on down! Lots of room here. Lots of opportunity. I moved here twenty five years ago and I love it more with each passing day!

Colorado's economy is booming, too, and if you can afford the higher COL I'd take here over a summer in Texas any day of the year.

To each his own. I love Texas weather - and just like CO, you gotta take the good with the bad. What we put up with in the summer is more than made up for by our wonderfully mild winters. But like I said, to each his own. It's not a competition. It's just a land of opportunity!

Not literally greener, obviously.

I lived in Texas for 10 years and liked it. However, I agree with another poster that Colorado has advantages over Texas and so does my current state, Washington state which has no state income tax, lower property taxes than Texas, good opportunities and less areas that you have to worry about crime.

Did the OP say East Texas? No. TEXAS is brown, even if East Texas isn't brown. It's still not necessarily greener than places in the lush Northeast.

I loved Texas!!!!! I lived in San Antonio back in the 90s because my dad was an Army doctor based in SA. I love Texans they make so much pride in their state, their country and the military. Texan women are gorgeous.. I always had good experiences with Texans people in general but I was always taught to be polite and respectful of everything coming from a military background. I would love to move back to Texas again. States/places I am looking to move to after graduate school are Nashville, TN, Austin, TX, Denver, CO, Phoenix, AZ and Las Vegas, NV hopefully I can get a high paying job in that city. Have a blessed day.

Well, east Texas is HALF of the state of Texas. And the central part of Texas isn't particularly brown either.

My point is that many people have a preconceived notion of Texas - that it's basically flat, brown, and desert like, when huge portions of it aren't like that at all. In fact, the most populated parts of Texas are nothing like that.
