to me Houston is like planet Earth. We have the gulf breeze and and mild winters. Our downtown skyline looks very neat and earthly, no weird buildings or structures. I don't why people call Houston Swampy, humid, and hot.

Whenever i go to Dallas-Fort Worth or San Antonio they seem like the Earth's alien planet neighbors Venus and mars

fermingon: Have you been to Venus or Mars? Houston is nice enough in winter, but summer there is like drowning in warm water. Some people like the humidity, but I don't. You're lucky to get a 'Gulf breeze'.

Its a deteriorating hell hole and the only thing progressive going on down here is that the mall is being "updated" and a new restaurant is being built next to Red Lobster.

I would love to get out of here and move to Houston.

Yup. Same here. Except I'm leaning more towards the DFW area.

Come to think of it, Houston is probably more like Venus, cloudy and scorching hot!

I honestly cant say anything about DFW. I have only been to the airport. But I have heard that it is more expensive to live in than Houston, and that there are a lot of stuck-up "flashy" people there.

If this is true, I wouldn't be interested in DFW.

I love Houston, because it feels like TX, but at the same time, it feels so different and international. It feels very dense, urban, and new so to say.

I have lived in CC my whole life, and nothing has changed. There have always been proposals, and hopes, but nothing or nobody ever follows through. CC reminds me of Michigan, no economy.

Anyways, I just need to find a better paying job and make some more money, and then I am out of this town.

Houston not swampy and hot?!

Look, when I visit a desert area I come home and realize my hometown of Dallas feels unbearably humid. But when I'm in Houston, Dallas feels positively bone dry. Speaking of an alien look, within 10 minutes of driving into Houston, my hair frizzes like I stuck my finger in a light socket. All earthlings will want to return to their home planets after just one glance.

It's all based on comparing one place to another, but I think if you asked anyone who lives in a low, stable humidity area if Houston was generally considered hot & humid, you'd have a very hard time convincing them it wasn't a super sticky place.

Dallas = Mars? LOL. Warm weather lovers who were in Dallas during this last winter would likely agree it was far too Mars-like. I personally loved it tho!

There is also alot of nice, down to earth, and friendly people here too. Your projecting the image of Uptown Dallas on to the entire metro area which is completely wrong.

To the OP, you really dont know why people call Houston swampy and hot? Are you serious. Its called the Bayou City for Gods sake. Bayous and swamps arent exactly the same thing, but theyre darn close. The only geographic difference is that Bayous are attached to a larger body of water. As for not knowing why people think Houston is humid and hot, that doesnt deserve a response.

gabetx: Some parts of Dallas are like that, but certainly not all, and Fort Worth is quite different from Dallas.
