Itís often still in the high 80s/low 90s in the fall and late spring. The non-diversity of terrain is also a major downside. Very far from the coast or mountains. Is there another location that I would like better (ie the good things about Texas, but not the downsides)? Where to other Texans like to move to when they want a change? I can tolerate 3 months southern summers, I just donít want them extending into other seasons.
After 26 years of Houston's long and oppressive summers, we moved to Philadelphia in 2011. Never looked back.

I am not originally from Texas but I moved here about twenty five years ago. I love Texas overall, but I do miss crisp fall days. We get about six of them in late November or maybe December - LOL. Here in northeast Texas, we do get fall colors but very late in the year and it's pleasant but not the riot of fall colors that I've enjoyed in the midAtlantic region or Ohio over the course of my life.

So we just try to go on vacation to one of those areas or the northeast some time in the fall each year. This past October we went to Maine, for instance.

That way we get the best of both worlds - we get to live in Texas (a state we love) but we get to get a taste of other seasons on vacation.

The heat doesn't bother me unless it's still hot in late October - which can be the case sometimes. But I love the mild winters and there's no season more beautiful than spring in Texas, and even early summer, in my opinion. The only time I start getting antsy about the weather here is when it should be fall but it's still summer.

I love that video. Love the 4 seasons in the Mid-Atlantic to Northeast. Looks like Houston could still get low 80s this week.

This. ^

Colo Dept of Revenue published a list of licenses surrendered from transplants one year. The vast majority were from Texas and California. But Texans have been moving to Colorado for about 75 years now, so the Californians are a bit late to the party.

Yeah, this time of year every place all over the world is "supposed" to be crisp and cool with lots of fall color.

People can be so simple.

It is in the northeast, other than a few anomalies.

You should visit. Southwest flies directly to many northeast locales from Houston and Dallas.

I don't live in Houston or Dallas, so I don't know why I would care about that.

My favorite time to visit that area of the country is in fact autumn, but summer time in NYC is a lot of fun too.
