@littlemisst08:  Aww too bad! I lived in the panhandle all my life until about 2 years ago, then I moved to Austin. I also went to Tech. I miss it!!

Is Austin an option? It’s my favorite part of America, so green & friendly! (and I love Shady Grove!)

@MrsKnox:  Perhaps growing up around the hill country had that effect on me!

Hope Kingsbury dominates everyone in the Big 12. I went to A&M ๐Ÿ˜‰

@Lily_of_the_valley:  We go to Austin every couple months, it’s only a 2 or 2.5 hour drive from Houston. Not sure how far it is from Dallas, but it’s not really that bad especially considering how spread out everything else in Texas is!

I’ve been living in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for about three and a half years.  For the first year I lived in Dallas proper and enjoyed the city life/proximity to things like good eats and good drinks.  For the past year and a half, I’ve been living in Grapevine (near the north end of DFW airport) with my fiance and I love it so much, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.

I’d say there is a large amount of health conscious people people living in this area.  Grapevine/Southlake/Flower Mound and some other nearby towns border a large manmade, but very nice lake with well maitnained parks, boating and fishing opportunities, kayaking spots, running trails, and more rugged mountain bike/trail runnin’ trails. I’ve taken regular advantage of some of these things and they’re really nice.  There are public tennis/basketball courts, and some of the parks even have basic signage and equipment to help you do cardio exercises at certain locations. These local activity spots are bustling with people every weekend but never feel overcongested or offputting.  I went to Chicago last summer for the first time in my life and it certainly feels more trendy than DFW, but if you’re looking for something different and just a fun change, I’m betting experiencing texas culture for three years would suit you guys well ๐Ÿ™‚

Summer is so hot – i can’t get over how hot it is, but fall and winter are a nice change, and sometimes we get a little snow ๐Ÿ™‚
