It looks as though I might "have to" relocate to Austin. It a really bad time for me because my business is BOOMING, but my husband might be told that he has an option of being laid off or move to Austin. He's from Austin (well, lived there from when he was 8 years old), but has been in Dallas for 10 years. He doesn't understand how much Austin has changed and thinks it's the same 'ol small town, though he voices his frustration of the growth each time we go to visit his family.
I am looking for opinions from people who have lived in both Austin and Dallas and need honest opinions about why you like whichever one better, and Austin being a "slower pace" means nothing to me because I am high energy and a slower pace will frustrate me even more.
Also, if you're living in one of these places but would love to move to the other, why? All opinions are welcome so I can fight to keep my business in Dallas!
