Los Angeles is far from perfect, but Phoenix is a dump.

I have friends in Phoenix who love it but they basically live in their swimming pool during the summers. So my thinking is you would have to have a place with a pool. Housing is way more affordable, so takes that stress off. But you have to be able to deal with the heat. I couldn't.

Vegas? Why anyone would move there is beyond me. Might as well just go to Phoenix then, you get a better city with better lifestyle yet similar weather

Austin? Younger people seem to be enamored with it. I hear it's a great place for a foodie. I'm sure it is. Texas has some great BBQ and Tex Mex and whatever else. It has a green and humid landscape. Some people hate the humidity. But it's the south. You'll be dealing with homesickness for a year or so and miss the mountains and the easy escape to the cold. But of all three, it would definitely be an experience. A big change in life.

If you are color-race conscious, I would not recommend Texas, other than perhaps some podunk West texas town or Fort Worth.

Don't go to Austin, San Antonio, or Houston, your attitude won't be welcome.

I'm actually thinking of going from TX to SoCal

Used to happen all the time. Why I have to laugh now when Texans complain about the CA to Texas migration lol

I vividly remember during some oil bust in Texas maybe 15 years ago all the texas realtors and appraisers flooding into CA for work

Sorry, but those places are full and traffic is getting worse in those places.

everywhere is getting crowded, at least major cities

My thinking is that people will be seeking out small towns and rural areas as time goes by. The only sanity left.

I'm sure those 3 cities are nice,but none of them offers what L.A or California has.

Texas, for the average person to generate wealth/savings, is better than CA from every article I've read and person I spoke with.

Low COL, good job market, more bang for your buck = more money in your pocket.

If I could pickup the people of Houston and transplant them in OC, I'd be happy. Good people, good state. Not too crazy left or right politically. Hard working folks that treat others with respect, second in diversity only to Manhattan (look it up).

Once you've worked you a55 off and made a bit of money, you may want to take it easy for a bit and get back to the fundamentals of being a human. Quality of life.

If SoCal cannot afford this to me, I don't really care for it. I'm not drawn by glitz and glamour, I could care less. If I see a celebrity, I may not even shake his/her hand, unless I respect them as an artist. The draw was for year round good weather, scenery, nature. My eyes and mind feel refreshed near water. There are plenty of options for children, a major international airport is within 1 hour. These are things that are important to me. Florida's got the hurricanes I'd like to avoid, and the heat and humidity. No thanks, got that already.
