8) Houston, Texas
The second Texas city on the list has welcomed 3% of former-Californians. Affordable housing and positive job growth in Houston could be the reasons. The median home price is $289,000 – much more affordable than the southwest and northwest coastal regions of the country. Additionally, Houston saw a 2.8% increase in job growth from April 2017 – April 2018. This is a new trend for Houston, but it could indicate positive job growth for the future. Houston may not seem like the most exciting place in the world to live, but that’s just not true. What about the Houston Space Center and Museum of Natural Science? Or the ever-popular 10-mile stretch of the Buffalo Bayou waterway that passes though the city. This is Houston’s hub for outdoor recreation and events complete with food trucks, a number of historic sites, a picnic pavilion, and a dog park – to name a few.
