I think you would like it here. Have never lived in GA, but Texas seems to agree with quite a few islanders that have left for the mainland.

Vegas seems big on islanders too, but not my style for living. Too too in my book.

Hey Paka, are you from Hawaii? What school you went grad? Not really looking at Vegas, not our style either.

Median home price in Hawaii is $730,000 and climbing. That is usually for a house built in the 1950's/60's with little if any updates. I doubt San Antonio could touch that. BTW milk costs $7.00/gallon. So I guess expensive is all perspective and No, we do not make all that much more money here either. Two income family is not a choice but a necessity here.

I don't have kids in the schools here, so I'm not much help. There are plenty of threads here on that subject, though.

SA is good for retirement, raising kids, getting a job, and cost of living not expensive. My only down fall for living here is the culture. I need to learn Spanish to function in my job, pay a ticket at court, deal with Fiesta, and learn to eat some type of a Mrxican dish. Don't get me wrong the food is good nut I'm so over it. I have never lived in coldness and rain , but I am More than willing to move where there is more diversity besides Hispanics, and Philippine.

Odd.....I was raised in SA, and still do business there - always in the English language. There is a variety of ethnicities in the SA area, from Polish to German to you pretty much name it. And since I enjoy Mexican food, that's not an issue for me - but I promise you I can find a very wide variety of foods pretty much anywhere in SA. So, SA may not be for you, but at least be more objective.....

The guys who do my landscaping speak no English. We have to speak Spanish. A/C guy speaks very little English, but really knows his craft. We speak in Spanish to him as well.

Home prices depend on what part of town you live in .You might get on Zillow or Trulia and type in San Antonio.There are also some towns around San Antonio as well. My town Schertz has a new library,YMCA, and several parks.We do various festivals. A lot of people come here who are military and the school district is popular with most people around here.They have programs for special education and autism if you need them,not saying you do. There are several movie theatres in the area, lots of shopping etc. It's not far to Schlitterbahn the famous New Braunfels waterpark or any of the state parks and Austin is about 65 miles away or so.

Truth be told, I was never sold on Georgia myself and I would feel comfortable in Texas if I thought about it. Probably because I heard there is an L & L in San Antonio. Makes me feel like it would be more welcoming. But I would still have to gut check it out myself.
Well, Georgia and Texas are hardly worlds apart, so brace yourself.
