Kinda hard to compare states..Some people are going to compare Orlando to Dallas and others will be thinking of Miami and Austin.

Lol I've never compared those particular cities-

Honestly Orlando & Miami......are 2 places that are filled w/ tourists-
& that totally turns me off....I have no interest in either place, actually.
If I was going to move to Florida, I'd have to research where the best job opportunities are,
the least amount of tourists, & I wouldn't want to be in a college area (no kids acting stupid, lol)


I would love Dallas, though.....or Austin

My comparison would pretty much be based on those cites cuz those are the cities I've been to in those states. (And El Paso, which was surprisingly livable. But I kinda forget about it when I think of TX.)

Have at it. I just hope you don't break down in Florida on a Sunday morning. Good luck with that.

Well I just moved back from Florida to CT for a job opportunity for my hubby and to my closer to our family. So, I guess if I was starting over - Texas, as Florida wouldn't be starting over unless if I moved to a different area.

I have heard good things though about Austin, so I would probably want to move out there if I had to move to Texas.

Jacksonville is a real contender, for Florida but I'm not sure where in Texas yet....Austin?
My issue w/ that is it's super popular- which turns me off....
Any mid size cities in Texas that aren't super hyped up- but still very cool?
Sorry to break it to you but Jacksonville might as well be a "Southern" gas swamped southern Georgia "city!
It's politics & culture reek of the South and not Florida!

What? How is Miami comparable to Austin? The only Texas city that is comparable to Miami in global stature, finance, sea port is Houston!
