I know a lot of people from outside of Texas don't realize this but southeast Texas is HUMID. Imagine Florida's humidity with higher temps - HOUSTON.

I know Houston doesn't get as hot as other parts of the state but if you add in the humidity the heat indexes are the same and a lot of times higher than most parts of Texas.

With that being said, if you don't like humidity, Austin would be the perfect place for you. I had no problem living there and dreaded the countdown until I had to move back Houston. Just go outside and run, hike, or walk everyday in the heat. Take it slow and in time you will adjust.
