This is a good Thread. I want to relocate and Texas was on my list. I just need to visit and see if I can live there.

I'm a student living in DC, so I'm not too sure if my opinion is valid, but as previous posters mentioned - D.C. is expensive!
I love the transit system, though.

I vote for Houston

Pros: cheap cost of living, great weather (you can wear shorts year-round), real estate is dirt cheap, city is spread out and one of the fastest growing in the country, great night life, very diverse culturally, economy has been stable (oil & gas and medical/healthcare industries are big), texas is a right-to-work state and also has no state income tax.

Cons: humidity can be a mutha (great for skin though); light rail is not citywide yet, so you'll definitely need a car.

I am not from Texas but spent time there IMO Houston is a better city for black professionals than Dallas.Both are beautiful though but I love the East coast so I could never live there.

I live in San Antonio, TX and it's regularly voted  one of the best cities to live in. Texas has an amazing economy and lower cost if living rates.
 
It's a big, slow, country city. Nothing like Dallas, Houston, NY, LA or Chicago.
 
 
I 2nd this. I live in Dallas right now, but I would choose San Antonio over Dallas any day. My first choice in Texas would be Austin, then San Antonio, Houston, Dallas...

Thanks! I dont have kids so maybe Houston will be a better fit.

If u have children I would say live in San Antonio and make the less than an hour drive to Austin to hang out. Dallas is decent but I feel like a little old lady living here. Thank goodness I'm moving soon! Good luck OP!

Houston, TX was the first place I moved to after leaving my hometown of Seattle, Washington. I moved there because I used to go there to kick it with my home girl and was sold on the nightlife and all of the black folks down thur...but ummm...after 4 months living there I couldn't take it anymore. Living there and visiting are two different things. I didn't like the fact that you have to drive everywhere because the mass transit sucks and it was overall really spread out kind of like Los Angeles...just wasn't my cup of tea. I hopped on a train to NYC and never looked back other than to visit my home girl and even then I've only been once since I left. Northern NJ is the area I recommend if you want to live in near NYC, but don't want to be in the city. Bergen county is an amazing location. I absolutely loved living in NJ, it was like the best of both worlds..I could work and have a good time in NY and go home to peace and quiet. The cost of living in Northern NJ is pretty pricey, but the jobs in NY pay pretty well. I had a car, but I only needed to drive it on the weekends.
Whenever I return to the states I have considered living in Charlotte, Dallas, San Diego, Arizona or Northern NJ again. I've been to San Diego it is a gorgeous city and has good weather all year round..not too hot and doesn't get too cold. I only went to Dallas for a day and didn't really get to see Dallas, but I know a lot of people who moved there and they like it..but they do have families, not sure how it is for a single woman. I've never been to NC or Arizona, but I've heard good things.
Good luck! Relocating is fun:)

any advice? suggestions? help a sistah out!

OP I LOVE THIS THREAD!Hug I've been doing this on my own and research is hard from a one sided view Thumbs Down


I glad people find this thread helpful . Hopefully some of the Tennesse ladies can help you out!


Chattanooga is boring and there is nothing in Knoxville outside of UTKnox.

I lived in Nashville for almost 7 years. Its the best of both worlds cause of it's central location to so many other cities, low cost of living and its a melting pot bc of all the schools in the area.

I moved because I wanted a "faster" city but it was cool when I lived there.
