    Wow. Can’t get much further apart than that. Hmm, dunno on that one. I love urban blight and oppressive heat and humidity. Can’t think of how San Diego could beat that!

    San Diego! If you like crime and heat and flat…then Houston.

    It depends on how much you like humidity and bugs.

    SD’s by the ocean and I’m guessing has a much wider variety of restaurants (i.e. ethnic ones). I’d go with SD.

    As a former San Diego resident I have to say that San Diego is better. It is one of very two places in the US that has a Mediterrean Climate. It is nice all year round and has plenty of things to do in your free time. It is close to LA without being in the smog bowl that we have up here as well as a 5-6 hour drive to Vegas or a short hop to Mexico or the Colorado River. The only down fall is that housing is more expensive than Houston but it is worth it for the climate.

    I think the best place to relocate is San Diego. The weather is moderate year round, laid back lifestyle and its on the beach. Right across the border too is Mexico. On the other hand, Houston has those terrible lightening storms and lots of humidity.

    San Diego is going to be expensive.

    Both of my brothers lived in SD and liked it, but they complained it was pretty expensive. I’ve lived in Houston since 1983 and love it here, especially for the diversity (and I’m guessing we have MORE variety in ethnic restaurants than SD–one of my favorites is Belgian). Yes, SD has the ocean, but Galveston is 45 minutes from my front door and Atlanta is an hour away by plane. But if you can’t stand humidity, go with SD. If you want affordable housing, go with Houston.

    San Diego is beautiful. All the nice things they say about it are true.

    That being said, Houston has some flaws. We are flat, we are ugly. We are hot. We have so many bugs that they have formed their own insurgency and will occasionally ambush a Orkin truck.

    We do have one thing that California does not. A working economy.

    Nobody moves to Houston for the beautiful beaches, the awesome sunsets or the laid back lifestyle… but we are the 3rd Largest city in America. If Harris County was a state it would be right smack in the middle populaton wise… we have more people than 25 of the states. People must be coming here for SOME reason…

    The reason is, Houston has JOBS. Good Jobs. Lots of them. Those stinky chemical plants and refineries, they pay REAL WELL. So do companies like EXXON/MOBIL, Anadarko Petroleum, BP, Continental Airlines, Lockheed-Martin, all the aerospace companies, and lets not forget the medical center
    ( ) with M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Baylor Medical Center, St. Luke’s Hosptial, University of Texas Medical Branch, the Port of Houston, and what used to be called Compaq (till HP bought it).

    Yeah, Galveston is one of the most pathetic beaches I have ever seen, and yeah when you go down to Galveston you can even see the off shore oil rigs in the distance (if you look hard enough). But those rigs pay REALLY well, and more than one Texan child has gone to Disney World on trips financed by Daddy working on those rigs, or flying people out to the rigs, or designing the rigs, etc.

    So yeah, if you want to lounge around on the beach, hang out a trendy coffee shop, and sell T-Shirts to toursits, go to San Diego. Yeah, you’ll be broke, have high taxes and high prices and have a heck of a time finding a job, but you will be broke in a very nice climate and have a great tan.

    You want to get hired, go to church, build a career, work hard, get rich, and be able to afford a big house, ( ) a mess o’ kids, a dog, maybe even make enough $ $ $ that you can stay home and be a full time Mom while hubby works, and still have a decent lifestyle… come to Houston.

    We are the most family freindly city I have ever seen. The Church aspect is a big part of it. We have Lakewood

    which I believe is the largest single congregation in the world, and and we have Second Baptist
    a church that is so big they hold their Christmas services in Minutemaid Park Baseball Stadium, but in Houston they are #2…

    and Fellowship of the Woodlands if you live in the northern suburbs I really like it there. Have a lot of respect for Kerry Shook.

    In any case here its not the geeky kids that go to youth group at church… the wierd ones are the ones that DON’T go to youth group. I had chances to move to Florida or Washington D.C. but I stayed here becuase I think it is a good place to raise kids.

    And we aren’t nearly as culturally dead as the folks in Yankee land would have you think.

    Heck, even the public schools work here…. well I’ll be honest, MOST of them do. There are a few that are HORRID. Depends on where you live. We are renting a house in a really good school district, and my kids school is great.
    You REALLY want to be in a magnet school. We are zoned for a mangnet school and LOVE it.

    Good luck.

    houston…the cost of living is much cheaper. the weather is great…very sunny and humid.

  12. William K says:

    Hmmm, San Diego does have a wonderful climate, but having illegal aliens sleeping in my backyard does not sound at all like fun.

    Houston has a wonderful climate, six months out of the year (the other six months you could fry eggs on the sidewalk). We have a lot of traffic. We have humidity. We have a do-nothing mayor. But, we have jobs out the wazoo and affordable housing.

    I love visiting San Diego, but I prefer to return home to Houston.
