For real..

Dallas and Houston are closer and even then they're still far away. At best Austin is more comparable to Portland and Denver (both of which I'd pick a million times over Austin.)

this is very true. There's nothing like really loving where you live. Those of us that have lived in places that we did not enjoy in the past know this!

I'm from a small metro in east TN. It's okay - there are good outdoors activities nearby, people are friendly, and no traffic congestion. Amenities are lacking as far as things to do not outside, dating scene is bad, it's relatively isolated.

I had to choose the moving immediately, but I don't hate Louisville. I like it here. There obviously pros and cons. I just know for a fact it is NOT where I want to live forever and plan on leaving as soon as I can. But I'm happy for the time being while I'm here.

I'll defend a little...


Austin is a great city and very pretty but there's no way it's prettier than San Fran, Savannah, or Charleston. San Fran is the prettiest city in the country.

I'd pick Houston and Dallas.

Houston is severely underrated. Yes it's huge so what happens outside the inner loop gets lumped in with Houston. But if you focus on the inner loop (which has a population similar to Sacremento and pop density similar to Boston) you will see the true beauty of the city. It's also not as ugly as people make it seem to be. It's a world class city (Austin can't lay claim to that) and has a low cost of living.

So I wouldn't say Dallas and Houston are far away from Boston, San Fran and Seattle. Both Dallas and Houston are Beta + cities (Yes San Fran, Boston are Alpha - but thats only one level higher and both will be Alpha - by 2020). Seattle isn't even close. Austin isn't even ranked. Dallas and Houston's Metro population and GDP are higher than the other metros and it isn't even close.

I spend the majority of my time in LA even though I'm in Scottsdale quite often. I have a love-hate relationship with LA. I kinda like living here because there is so much to do, it truly is a world class city, and it's a great place to start a career. You can't beat the pacific ocean. The mountains surrounding the city are beautiful, the restaurants are the best in the world, the nightlife is great, and the museums are even better. Having said that, I find LA to be overbearing. I HATE the traffic (any reference to the 405 makes me cringe lol), the monotonous weather(although it's been raining recently), how run down a large chunk of the city is, the architecture(dingbat apartments are the worst), and I hate how spread out everything is. Don't get me wrong, I think it is one of America's greatest cities, BUT I think it's a far greater city to visit than it is to live in. If an option opens up for me in DC or another city of my liking then I'm leaving this megacity as fast as I can haha.

Yeah what 812accucheck said! Austin beats every city hands down. You guys don't have near the population that we have, or the transportation either. NYC, Chicago are laughable compared to Austin transit! And food.... man where to begin. Whataburger bro.... it tops everything including New Orleans.

I live in beautiful Charleston, S.C. absolutely love it. Can't think of any other place I would rather live.
