Where should I live and work?

I'm currently in Property Management, but my passion is cars. I previously had over 5 years experience in Fixed Operations. My fiance is an accountant and almost has her CPA. Can we find jobs?

We'd like to be some place that the people are down to earth and aren't stuck up. Somewhere that offers decent paying jobs (40-60k) and affordable housing (200k range). Not an over abundance of traffic. As for climate, we'd prefer dry heat (so that probably rules Houston out).

With this in mind, would anyone mind recommending any areas? I've heard Austin is nice. I've also heard Houston/Sugar Land is as well. San Antonio - not so much.

Other places we're considering are Tennessee, North Carolina, Alabama, Kentucky and California. Really, anywhere.

I know of no where in California you can do that. The salary is right, but the housing is off by about 300k.

Dallas / Ft Worth is a great place to live with an abundance of opportunity :D besides, then we can be neighbors. Dallas is a little more up tempo and fast paced, while Ft Worth is a little slower pace and to be honest, my favorite.

I have to agree with Dallas/Fort Worth. I live in a small town about 20 minutes east of Dallas. Stay out of Mesquite tho. Getting bad. My small town has no crime that I see at least, really good schools, easy commute to Dallas for jobs, not as hot as Austin or San Antonio and not as dirty Houston. No snow or tonardos like in Amarillo. Houses are realy cheap as well. You can get a 4 bed room two and a half or three bath house for about $150,000 maybe less with about 2200- 2800 sq ft.

Buncha Houston haters on here!!!
I live in far northwest Houston in the Cypress area and it is nice here. Katy, Sugarland, Kingwood and the Woodlands are all very nice places to live.
Austin is nice to visit but waaaaay to liberal and really just a big college town.
San Antonio is a no go. It has cool things to see and do though.
D/FW, I think, is a lot like Houston. Just not as humid.
As for the traffic. It all depends on where you live and work. Any big city is going to have bad traffic. All places I named are the far points (out there) of Houston and are not "in Houston" They are all about 20 - 35 miles from it.
Katy, Woodlands, Kingwood, Sugarland...you can live and work. In Cypress you may need to drive a little.

Houston area has 3 drag strips and 2 Auto X tracks, that I know of. Summers are hot and great for boating, winters are mild.
Houston's economy is usually last to get hit and first to bounce back.

depends on what lakes you go to......There is always 30 minutes out of the metroplex lake Granbury Great lake for boating/fishing and etc.

but yes with the lack of water watch out for stumps
