That's just one of many things planned that are about to get a jump start, yeah!

I know Dallas is preoccupied with it's Trinity River Project, so alls well ends well.

And they are essentially the same city, I just like Kemah, so that's what influences my decision.

I agree; they aren't drastically difference as far as architecture and layout, but the atmosphere, people, and culture is relatively different. Dallas is more of traditional Texas whereas Houston is a cross between Texas and the gulf coast influence.

Yeah, it is crazy to claim they are drastically different. The differences are too insignificant. And they need to hurry that Earthquest thing up sheesh

Houston does not suck Moderator cut: orphaned, the only problem with houston is our public transit and by 2014 that problem will be solved, we get a little better nightlife and there will be very little wrong with houston other than the weather which is only bad 4 months of the year

Default Potential Move to Houston in 2011

I've been to Houston twice and absolutely loved it! Granted, I haven't been everywhere, but Humble, Tomball and The Woodlands looks promising.

I live in Pittsburgh and trust me, you all don't know cold, frigid weather with no sun, 27+ inches of snow, wind chill making it feel like 20 below zero!

Yes, we have road salt, cinders and plows, which is great during the day. However, when night arrives and temperatures plunge, all the melted snow/ice refreezes and we have black ice! No fun driving at 5 am to work worry about if you are driving on an icy pavement or just wet roadwayl

Looking for job at either major banks in Houston. Would like to live near the I-45 North area (north of IAH). Not crazy about the humidity but I survived 4 days in May 2010 when the temps were 97 degrees! We only get that humid in July/August!

I found everyone so friendly. Everyone says Pittsburgh is friendly; I don't think so! If you can drive here, you can drive anywhere. That's true ... no problems getting around Houston. Maybe I passed my destination a time or two, but I wasn't totally lost or panicked; helped to have my portable GPS unit with me.

Houston is clean, roads are in superb shape! No potholes and plenty of room to move on the roadways. People don't ride your butt and blow the horn or shoot you the bird! Yes, all cities have their problems and bad
people; no place is perfect. Here's to a successful relocation and being happier in Houston than I ever was here.

You sure you visited Houston? I've never once heard "superb" and "roads" in the sentence... unless it was "The Alley Theater play was superb, but the roads totally %$(^$* my suspension and alignment trying to get there."
