Would you rather live in North Houston or Inland Empire (around ontario/rancho)?

Inland Empire because of the scenery--the mountains are sweet.

I would choose Houston probably. I love Southern California, but the Inland Empire is not my idea of the Southern California lifestyle. It is the place people settle on living, but usually would prefer to live in Los Angeles, Orange, or San Diego Counties. The Inland Empire is cheaper than the rest of So Cal for a reason. Not much in the form of stuff to do out there (other than ski in nearby mountains) either and it lacks a real identity that LA, OC, and SD have.

Just an opinion

Inland Empire. Like rural, old IE. Not the suburban crap. But the IE of orange groves, cattle ranches, and alfalfa farms. The IE of Mystic Lake with farms bordered by sunflowers and eucalyptus trees. That IE. The IE that will be paved with idyllic sounding communities like Sunnymead Ranch or Sycamore Creek. The IE of quaint downtowns (Redlands, Claremont, Riverside). The IE of when I was 7 years old (the IE of 16 years ago). When Moreno Valley and Temecula were seperated by farmlands and mountains and not connected by housing tracts. Yeah...I only saw the tail end of the IE...but I miss shooting my BB gun by old ranches. I miss being near the city and not in it. My two cents.

Don't you mean The Woodlands? "North Houston" doesn't mean much in real terms. I chose the IE even though I've never visited because like I told you in another thread TW is for families so there's absolutely nothing for someone of your age to do there, and you'd have to do an awful lot of commuting along I-45 to get to where the good stuff is in Houston, and I wouldn't wish that hell on my worst enemy. Well, yes, I would... My thinking is, if you're going to have to be stuck in either undesirable place, at least be stuck closer to where you can get to more fun stuff that makes it worthwhile living there on the rare occasion you can get out. Now if you'd said say, Sugar Land, I would maybe have a different opinion, but do you realize how far TW is from Houston proper, taking into account traffic, accidents, gas $, etc.??

Because its close to LA, The Inland Empire.(No offense to the IE)

Otherwise, Houston has better pay and a far lower cost of living.
