Best Places in Texas to Live
The rankings take into account aspects such as the quality of local schools, employment statistics, housing trends, crime rates, and access to services.
But we have our list, based on this hard data and also taking into account what the locals themselves have to say.
And here's our list of the 8 best places to live in Texas:
Woodlands has been named the sixth best place to live in Texas.
The small town of 105,000 people has enough upscale restaurants, stores, concerts, and other activities to make it a destination in its own right. It's also one of the most picturesque places you'll ever live, with lush greenery and woodlands characterizing the landscape.
Plano has one of the lowest crime rates in Texas, and some of the lowest taxes in the region. It prides itself on being a "great place to do business."
This is an incredibly diverse city in tx, Plano, with a whopping 80 languages spoken in its highly rated schools. New residents are sure to warm up quickly to their new surroundings, given the camaraderie the community strives to foster.
Euless considers itself a medium-sized city in tx with a small-town spirit.
Located between Dallas and Fort Worth, it is one of the best places to live in Texas. Like many other parts of the state these days, Euless is quite diverse, with a lot of Hispanics and Asians.
Outdoor enthusiasts will be happy to know that Euless has an 18-hole championship golf course. There's also a water park where kids can lose themselves, not to mention 300 acres of parkland.
The unemployment rate is only 4.1%, and a bonus in a state where long distances are the norm is that Dallas is only 30 minutes away.
This is a well-run suburb where more than half of all adults have a bachelor's degree. A typical household brings in over $80,000 a year, most of which goes into savings (we want to believe), given that the cost of living is lower than in most cities.
Goods and services are purchased at prices indicated by the national average.
5. Round Rock
For one thing, Round Rock is near all of Austin's entertainment and culture, and Dallas is also less than three hours away. The unemployment rate is extremely low, and everyone you run into seems like an engineer.
Most Round Rock residents own their own homes.
There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities - jogging paths, endless parks, plenty of opportunities for sports and recreation, not to mention lots of other special events.
We don't often see big cities on lists of best places to live in Texas, relying only on their suburbs for bragging rights. Austin is a city made up mostly of young people.
Houston has made a name for itself as a space shuttle launch center (and possibly oil refineries).
Perhaps what's even more striking about Houston is that you expect it to be undoubtedly expensive, but wages in this city are higher than anywhere else in the country...
Health care in Houston is important in every sense of the word, as the city has a medical center that is bigger than downtown Dallas Texas.
Dive into the burgeoning cultural and dining scene, and Houston easily places a winning position as one of America's best cities.
If you're looking to move to Dallas, one of the first places you need to start looking is Denton. Denton is a county, though its main city also bears the same name.
Although residents sometimes refer to it as "Little D," it is more than that. It is one of the most diverse, culturally vibrant, and progressive-minded communities in Texas.
Most residents are either tech entrepreneurs or creative industries.
