Winters get SURPRINGSLY cold. Beach is nowhere near an option. 6 hours to the nearest beach. . Homeless. Jeez it's getting out of control. Very liberal mindset. Far away from the east coast. Covid lockdowns. Seems like EVERYONE is moving to ATX. Not many (if any) restaurants on the water. . Very very very very high rental rates for the nice areas of town. I'm sure you can find something but walking is a such a nice thing to be able to do and it might be hard to come by in ATX. All of your friends will want to visit and stay with you. From food to drinks, it's pretty damn pricey in ATX. Expensive. Could also be a pro, but it becomes a little exhausting.
