    Moving to Texas

    I was thinking of moving to Texas and was wondering what the pros and cons were for living in Houston Texas( and it's surrounding suburbs?) I know some pros are that there is no income tax and that it's suppose to be friendly to new comers (Houston) but have also heard about the brutal heat in the summer but is it that bad? Also has anyone visited or is a member of the mega church Lakewood headed by Joel Olsteen?

    There's so much to do in/near Houston, Texas. I'm not sure if it's for me though. The traffic would drive me up the wall.

    I'm in San Antonio and I can tell you, It. Is. Hot.

    It's a humid heat, which makes it feel hotter than it is. Houston is a cool town, I think you're smart to be looking into the areas outside of the city.

    Check out Spring, The Woodlands, and Katy.

    I love Texas but I'm a bit partial, I've lived here my whole life!

    The heat and humidity are brutal in the summer. And, if you don't like traffic, don't move there. However, they do have some interesting communities that you don't find everywhere...a thriving Vietnamese community for example, with great shopping and restaurants. There are some fabulous seafood places as well, because of Houston's location close to the ocean.

    Wow, Houston is close to the ocean? What ocean is that lol?! I guess I need to look at a map... but you would think it wouldn't be so hot being close to the ocean. Well, yikes... not looking forward to the brutal heat.

    I was born in Texas, but I'm not currently living there. I still have some relatives over there, so if you move to Texas, you must have in mind the heat over there is extreme, specially during summer - spring! The heat in places like San Antonio is quite humid, and I consider this kind of heat the worst one, because if you're like me... you'll end up sweating a lot. In other cities of Texas, like for example, el paso, the heat is of a more dry nature. That doesn't make it any more bearable tho... I'm living in a place with a very similar weather, and believe me, I'm counting the days til winter finally arrives!

    I'm the same way, that type of weather keeps me locked indoors with AC on! I look forward to fall and winter the most.

    Yes, thank God indeed. I went to school for three years with no air conditioning in Louisiana, and the heat is/was unbearable.

    That sounds appropriate and i guess if you go through niagara falls night view there will be a lot which can be good enough for you to experience.

    Texas is the most famous and largest city of US. It offer a wide range of attractions to explore the beauty of nature views. It is my favorite one travel destination around the world. I explore many fabulous places there and had great time there. I would love to go there again during my east coast tours from nyc with my few family members. It is a great place for visit. What will you say about it?

    Texas is a great place to live in I would like to say go for it and enjoy the immense beauty of this region and stay in a comfortable environment. My aunt Hazel lived there for three years and spend a satisfied time there. Still she want to move back there after her all inclusive niagara falls packages for fun.

    Re: Moving to Texas

    I'm listening first time about Texas because I never had been there even no one from my family traveled this destination. After reading your posts, I think it is a suitable place for picnic. But I need more information about it, I mean its popular attractions and great hotels for accomodatuon. Will anyone like to share with me?
