ok yall heres the deal. me and the wife are thinkin bout moving to TX sometime next year. niether of us have lived there before so we dont know where to start lookin.
We are looking for an area that is not in the big city but close enough to drive in for an afternoon or whatever. the big thing is we hate the cramped areas where you are always on top of your neighbor.
Also, low on the incompitant people meter too!!!!!!!!!

Any suggestions welcome

College Station you have Houston and Waco right down the road and good schools. Pluss there are some really nice neighborhoods here. Its like liveing in a small town with the benifits of a big town.

or

Any where around the San Antonio area is beautifull.

It may also help knowing what you like to do for fun as well as what you want to do for work.

i live in cypress which is NW Houston. Great side of town and i am 20 minutes from downtown Houston. The country and city come together where i am. My other favorite place is the east Texas towns of lufkin and Nac.

If you don't mind the wind & bland scenery, Amarillo is really nice. Economy's good, cost of living is low, & people are great. Bell helicopter is expanding; health care & school system also have good employment opportunities. Housing is reasonable.

We are both pretty easy goin people. Love to have fun but at the same tiime maxin and relaxing too. One of our biggest pet peeves is the "thugs" to put it nice.
Im gonna be in the law enforcement (state then federal hopefully) field and my wife's in the biology field (although the still isnt sure what exactly she wants to do). Of course we want a nice area since we are planning on tryin to start a family soon, but i dont want an area crawling with kids.

.....Thanks for all the replies already guys. any ideas are welcome since yall know the area and i dont

boerne sounds like THE spot for you,

next inline would be new braunfels, bulverde, spring branch

all out of the "big" city with no more than a 15-20 minute drive to san antonio.

Another vote for that hill country, been in most parts of Texas and lived in Rio medina nothing beats the hill country.

I've been all over texas and the hill country would be the only place I would consider living. I'm working in west texas now, near lubbock and absolutely hate it! Wind blows all the time, dust storms are regular, it sucks

It really depends on what ya looking for and needing...

Hill Country is nice, but Jobs are hard to find...(depending on what yall do or if ya need jobs)

Anything North of Dallas all the way to Oklahoma border is good, still plenty of land out here ;)

Again, just depends on what ya need...
