Top 10 Best Places To Live In Texas

The Lone Star State, home of the Live Music
Capital of the World, where everything is bigger, where near everything is better. Deep in the heart of Texas are prairies, forests,
rugged hills, desert land, a coastline and grasslands that give residents
multiple venues to enjoy life. Here’re the 10 best places to live in Texas
in 2017. 1. Austin. Austin is one of the fastest-growing metro
areas in the country. That may be great news for the local economy,
but a tough pill to swallow for people shopping for a home. About 50 people move to Austin every day,
drawn to the Texas capital’s music, outdoor spaces and cultural institutions. Named the “Live Music Capital of the World,”
Austin has a plethora of music venues and local bands to entertain endless crowds. However, musicians should think about finances
before moving, as many say it’s difficult to make a living in music in Austin. Austin’s traffic problem can be addressed
with flexible work schedules, due diligence when choosing a neighborhood and,
for those wanting to get in some exercise while commuting, using public transportation,
walking and biking. Residents like to escape the urban bustle
with a hike, bicycle ride, jog, kayak or canoe ride in one of more than 250 parks. 2. Dallas – Fort Worth. Offering both big-city excitement and quiet,
suburban living, the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area offers an
interesting mix of Texas pride and cosmopolitan offerings. Those who live in Dallas and Fort Worth tend
to be young professionals, while the surrounding suburbs are largely
filled with young families who want both a close-knit community
and easy access to the cities. Finding the right real estate agent or realtor
is key when it comes to buying or selling a home in Dallas-Fort Worth. Most nights, live music echoes out of bars
and theaters across the metroplex. Kid-friendly activities include the indoor
water park at Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington and zoos
in both Dallas and Fort Worth. Come summertime, the weather in this part
of Texas can feel unbearable, with temperatures averaging in the mid-90s. But during the rest of the year, a mild climate
yields an enjoyable atmosphere for attending sporting events,
enjoying neighborhood parks or walking around town. 3. Houston. The Houston attracts people with an entrepreneurial
spirit, and those who want to work at some of the country’s largest companies. Not only is Houston the hub of the oil and
gas industries, but it’s also a major center of manufacturing and health care. Despite falling oil prices, Houston’s housing
market is performing exceptionally well. The city’s healthy economy continues to attract
new residents in search of jobs in the energy industry,
causing an increased demand for housing. Houston typically has hot summers with highs
reaching the mid-90s. Winters are much milder with temperatures
averaging from the low to mid-60s, making time spent outside much more enjoyable. The Continental Club and Warehouse Live are
just a couple of places that music buffs can jam out to live music. And located about 30 minutes north of downtown,
Lake Houston is the favorite choice for fishing, boating,
swimming or kayaking along the lake’s tree-lined creeks and tributaries. 4. San Antonio. San Antonio is as comfortable as an old pair
of jeans. It offers big-city amenities and world-renowned
attractions coupled with a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. Most famously known as the home of the Alamo,
the spirit of the region expands beyond its tourist labels,
offering a community rich in Spanish and Old West heritage. San Antonio features a cost of living that’s
slightly lower than the national average. Additionally, San Antonio residents pay slightly
less for everyday expenses, such as food and health care,
than those who live in other metro areas. San Antonio sees approximately 300 days of
sunshine per year. The warmest months in July and August see
an average high temperature of 95. With such amenable weather year-round, residents
often take day trips to local Hill Country destinations,
passing the time at weekend fairs in Wimberley, winery tours in Fredericksburg and tubing
on the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels. 5. El Paso. Today, El Paso attracts a wide variety of
residents with its array of recreational and cultural offerings. The cost of living in El Paso is lower than
the national average, while the cost of housing is well below that
of other major metropolitan areas, including Houston and Austin, Texas. El Paso experiences all four seasons, but
there’s a reason it’s called the Sun City: The region sees a little less than 300 days
of sunshine each year. Summers in El Paso usually hit the high 90s,
and at times can reach triple digits, but the desert heat is dry and not humid. El Paso is a great place to live for those
who like the outdoors. The metro area’s proximity to the Rio Grande
provides opportunities to whitewater raft, canoe and fish,
while Franklin Mountains State Park and Hueco Tanks State Park are great hiking and rock
climbing spots. 6. McAllen. Despite its reputation as a mere border town,
McAllen, Texas, is a very vibrant metro area and a major center for retail,
international trade, tourism and manufacturing. A high quality of life,
an abundance of medical facilities and young, bicultural communities are additional draws. McAllen is one of the least expensive metro
areas to live in the nation. Residents spend less than the national average
on home purchases and monthly rents, as well as everyday expenses like food,
transportation and heath care. McAllen experiences year-round sunshine, and
residents enjoy the 80-degree winters. On the flip side, the summers are scorching,
with temperatures reaching into the 100s in July and August. High humidity is also prevalent throughout
the year, and like all metro areas in the state, rain is rare. Located 70 miles from the Gulf of Mexico,
McAllen attracts those who enjoy the water. Weekend pastimes range from pedal boating
or kayaking in the metro area’s Town Lake at Fireman’s Park to taking day trips to the
beach. But there are other ways in McAllen to enjoy
the outdoors. Since the Rio Grande Valley is a major bird
migration corridor, bird-watching is a popular activity too. 7. The Woodlands. The Woodlands is a master-planned community
and census-designated place in the U.S. state of Texas,
one of the most well planned out townships in the nation. The Woodlands offers great schools, great
shopping and entertainment, the cost of living is affordable,
and you get so much for your money living here! There’s plenty of outdoor and indoor activities
for all ages. Great trails to hike and some of the best
eateries you would ever find in all of Texas. The Woodlands is upscale,family friendly and
safe place to live and raise a family. 8. Plano. Plano has one of the highest high school graduations
rates in the country. Residents here strongly support the education
systems and go out of their way to protect and nurture children. The city provides opportunities to explore
nature, such as hiking at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve. Families enjoy strolling through downtown
Plano, taking a look inside unique shops and quaint restaurants. Plano’s highly diverse population helps
children grow up with exposure to other cultures and walks of life. It’s a great town which is very diverse and
multicultural. A lot of potential for growth, whether it
is business or studies. Very clean and beautiful. A lot of places to go for entertainment, food
or just to relax. Nice parks are scattered all across the city. Plano is in the humid subtropical climate
zone. On average, the coolest month is January and
the warmest is July. 9. Richardson. Richardson is a very friendly community with
active residents. Great and quiet city easily accessible by
all transportation car, train or bus . You can take easy walks in beautiful public
parks,restaurant or shopping center. There are so many opportunities to engage
in the diverse culture of the area. Richardson provides its residents with biking
lanes and running trails as well as many parks. It has a temperate climate with mild winters
and warm summers. 10. Round Rock. Round Rock, with a population of around 100,000,
is located 15 miles north of Austin in the Central Texas hill country. Close to Austin, but far enough away to enjoy
the suburban life. The area offers lots of family friendly activities
with children of all ages, shopping and restaurants to keep you busy,
and there are many beautiful towns to visit nearby that offer great swimming holes. Round Rock is the one of the fastest growing
cities in the nation, and one of the best-managed cities in Texas. It is a very safe community.

  2. I luve in Texas and 1. Austin is hot and music isnt th same anymore. The libs took over too. 2. Dallas sux unless you are which case you could do better somewhere else. 3. Houston is a steam bath. 4. San Ant. Is all concrete and blazing sun. And unless you're mexixan… 6. McAllen is really really hot. And nothing t do!. There are better places in Texas to live.

  3. I Love H-Town… Houston, TX in Fall, Winters and Spring. But Summer Times… It's Red Hot – Real Hot, 99o.

  4. The real truth from a native Texas. Yes, Texas use to be a great place to live 40 yrs ago. Now it is overcrowded, traffic jams, high cost of living, millions of illegal immigrates, and liberals taking control of major cities. Think California in ten years, then you will understand why I would caution moving to Texas. In fact, I and my grown children would like to immigrate out of Texas, but due to business and that all family lives there, can not leave.

  5. after i annilate texas im going to turn it into my personal lake of fire, i want a hot tub for my afterlife lol. aurevio traitors!

  6. Sadly most of the major cities in Texas are liberal cesspools. Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, and Austin being the worst. Plano and Richardson are okay and video didn't mention that they're neighboring cities. Plano is also the most armed city in the country per capita.

  7. Around the world. Plano. Richardson makes. Dallas. D f e. .
    What happened to AMARLLO. TEXAS you mess up ?

  8. Corpus has 2 colleges the several beaches one of the world largest port and refineries and i say last 20 year corpus has doubled it size and tripled its buisness jobs and population

  9. Apache people and the Comanche people and the Kiawa people and others are always true to the mother land they call Texas, so with that known just as they exterminated from the face of the Earth so also will the state of Texas with the size meteor as the size of Texas I am called GOMDA and when I leave this world all will end Texas with a meteor

  10. I have lived in Texas the majority of my life and lived in some of the cities mentioned in the video. Austin is great for young professionals, but the traffic is a nightmare. Interstate 35 which is the main highway, is always under construction. If anyone can afford to live downtown and get to work easily, it would be fine. El Paso is another place we have lived and it is so big and spread out and not easy to get around in anymore. About the only way to go from the east side to the west side is 1-10 and is not fun to travel on.
    No one mentioned San Antonio, which is growing but the housing is more reasonable and you can always find a city street to travel most anywhere and avoid the freeways.

  11. Austin! Property taxes go up every year by 10% making it one of the most expensive cities to live in! DFW is horrible!

  12. My dad works for hfd but the bad thing about Houston is the mayor no paying firefighters good,tony buzbee please save us.

  13. I plan to move to San Antonia, TX one day. I love the "conservative" atmosphere that seem to be there. I have a cousin that live there, so yeah I'm planning!!

  14. I live in Lubbock and I have to say even if it is in the flat panhandle of Texas it has great things to do and it is probably better to live in than San Antonio or Houston

  15. Dear people not from Texas, please stop moving to Austin. We are over populated and homelessness is a crisis, oh and you're raising our rent.

  16. Austin is democratically run. They are trying to make Austin like a little Hollywood and there’s a lot of homelessness here in Austin. Don’t listen to this video.

  17. Corpus Christi was nice at some point the bay and Cole park are my favorite places and of course the beach but lately that city has gone to shit it's a beautiful city but things there are just getting worse crime ,deaths, shootings

  18. Mid nineties! Try close to one hundred almost everyday in the Summer.? Mid nineties is considered a cold front here in San Antonio.?
