Need advice from anyone who has an opinion or has made a similiar move. We are currently living in California, the Inland Empire, to be exact. My husband and I have been talking about a move for months...but can't seem to agree on where. We have three boys, ages 14, 6 and 2.
Good schools, good community and low crime are very important. A thriving economy would help, although I'm not sure if you will find that anywhere right now. We enjoy the outdoors...hiking, biking, sports. I have a horse and would like to have access to trails for riding. We don't really want to be in a subdivision...we would like to have a little bit of land and open spaces around us.
I don't mind a little snow...in fact that might be nice. Four seasons would be good.
But the most important thing is a place where we can raise our children and call home. Small town...probably better. Someplace where we can make new friends and not feel like outsiders from California.
Does this place exist and if so where is it?????

You wouldn't feel like outsiders in Texas. That is, no one is going to hold the California thing against you. But I'd say if you don't have a reason/desire/wish to move to Texas then consider your options heavily. There's plenty of people headed for Texas only to find it wasn't much like the backyard they left behind so had not much to say other than complaints.

They say Texas is 'like a whole nuther country.' If you don't bring your own pot of gold you're sure not going to find one here. Then again, if you do bring that gold there's no one going to try to take it away from you either.

Take a look at the Texas Travel Guide for some info on just about every big and little living place in the state.
