Houston is mucccccchhhhhh better than dallas. All day anyday.
I've lived in both Dallas and Houston.
More job opportunities, restaurants/food, entertainment/nightlife, diversity in houston.
I love cypress! (a suburb right outside of houston) But it is a little on the expensive side....
The only difference in the weather is that it is extremely humid in houston...but other than that the weather is almost the same as dallas.
The traffic is also MUCH much worse in houston though, and people drive like bats straight out of hell on I-610
But houston is still much better than dallas...all day, anyday
