I don't know if this makes it appealing but the cost of living is lower than the U.S. average.  Also, the unemployment rate is lower then the national average. Another plus the delicious BBQ!

Texas is nice to visit however I don't think i would want to live there. Some parts of Texas is really nice. You should visit, you may like it.

I would LOVE to move from California to Texas when I retire... the taxes in California are insane & the quality of life is lowest of all 50 states, the pace of life here is FAST -- something I've noticed that is absent in other states, except maybe in New York City.   Texas has reasonable priced homes, taxes are low to none... I believe they don't have state income tax, or property tax. You get tons of land if you want.... I would like to live by the ocean there, perhaps around Houston or Galveston. There is a big exodus of people leaving California to other states due to taxes, probably why other states are becoming so liberal, even the conservatives in California are mostly socially liberal / fiscal conservatives.

The humidity though..... ugh.

I have traveled through various parts of Texas.  Wasn't impressed enough to want to live there.
Have a wonderful day!

I've never been to Texas, but I imagine it's too hot there in the summer for me. I hate the heat and humidity. It makes me feel like I'm suffocating.

I am spoiled with gorgeous weather for over three hundred and twenty days a year  living in Colorado. I have to go to conferences every once in a while. Three separate conferences were in Texas (Houston and San Antonio) and I was absolutely miserable dashing from air conditioned area to a car to another air conditioned area the whole time. Someone suggested walking to a grand courtyard with an excellent restaurant. We started in that direction but, after walking no more than ten feet in that direction, turned around.There was absolutely no thought of sleeping with the windows open. I feel the same way About Minnesota, Wisconsin, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Alabama and the Carolinas. I do not like feeling sticky or sweating my buns off.

no state tax and low unemployment is very appealing

I love Texas!  Not born here but have lived here for close to 50 years.  There are parts of Texas I would not want to live in though;  west Texas for one as the wind seems to always blow there and it's so dry.  We camp there sometimes but wouldn't want to live there.  Austin, DFW and some of the other larger cities are too liberal for my liking so wouldn't want to live near those either.  Where we live is a lot like my home state; minus the mountains.

For me, Texas is a nice place to visit but I don't think I would want to live there.
