It has been explained to me and I see it my self that even though San antonio is HUGE it still has a "small town mentality" I like to live in the burbs but small town isnt for me. We have lived here for a quite sometime now and I'm starting to loose hope on the good that san antonio has to offer us...
I'm 35 and married with one child. Almost everyone I know has good things to say about Texas. It can't be worse than the high cost of living here in California and the super high price on the houses and taxes. I already work for the post office so my salary will go far more over there than over here. Plus we got that damn state tax here.

my dh and I were basicly in your same situation, around your same age as well and we personally dont plan on staying in texas. I know the sound of texas seems lovely! I hope you visit and spend some time here before you do. We did alot of research, talking to people, ect, before we moved to TX. Their was still alot of things we didnt discover until we lived here. As all that came about we started to dislike the lifestyle here. TX didnt work for us but it may work for you. . .

Interesting. What did you guys not like about Texas? We have family members over there and they love it. My wife's cousin is 21 and she likes it so far. They moved to San Antonio about 2yrs ago.

Well I got my transfer and I have been here for about a month. I do like it but the heat here is crazy and the playgrounds for the kids at the parks suck. I have been to two malls and only one of them has a tiny old playground. I already found a nice apartment complex called wolfe run for $689, which is way better than the $950 roach infested apartment we used to live in LA.

Thanks for the update and welcome to San Antonio! As with any other place, you'll find good things and bad things. So far for us good things have been more than bad things, and really enjoying the city, but your mileage may vary.

You may want to try some of the restaurants that have indoor or shaded playgrounds. Many don't ask you to buy anything. Two Brothers BBQ is one of my favorites.

About the heat, at least is not Phoenix!

Yeah, it's pretty freaking nippy in Antarctica right now too...

SA may not be much, but it's definitely a billion times better than la la land. That place is disgusting. I was always glad Camp Pendleton would keep it from encroaching on San Diego when I lived there.

How long ago did you move here? San Diego was cool. I went there a couple of times.
Every time the weather bothers me here , I remind myself how expensive life was back in the San Fernando Valley. Now if some people would learn how to drive here and not cut 4 lanes of traffic and come into the freeway at 30mph. Lol.

Thanks, yes every where you go there will be some kind of issue. I'm amazed at the size of the houses here and the pricing.

I left in December of 99 and I see you've already figured out the lovely SA drivers....
trust me, it gets worse. Just when you think you've seen everything, they'll find yet another way to get you. 99% of these people would die on something like th 5 or 405. Literally, they'd be shot dead on the spot.
