California to Texas Movers
More people from California are moving to Texas than to any other state and for good reason. Texas is a gorgeous state with an incredibly large amount of entertainment and attractions. A very unique state, there seems to be a different feel for every city and area that you go into. The Lone Star State has a place for everyone.
Not only is Texas a state full of interesting sites and locations, but it’s also more friendly for your wallet. Texas is one of the states with no personal income tax, while California has a 13.3% income tax rate. The median home price of $195,000 in Texas is much more favorable compared to the median home price of $552,800 in California. Overall, Texas is a much cheaper state to live in than California.
Texas is a fascinating state to live in, full of entertainment, culture and a rich history. If you want to start your move then give us a call at (408) 240-0244 or fill out a free quote form.
A look at some of the best cities in Texas
We all know that Texas is a big state but it can be shocking to realize just how big. One thing that comes from this state’s size is the large number of cities that are worth moving to or just visiting while you’re in the state. Here are some of the best cities in the Lone Star State:
Austin: The capital of the state is known as the “Live Music Capital of the World” and it earned that name with its music scene. There are numerous music festivals all year round including SXSW and JMBLY. If live music isn’t your thing, there are trendy shops, renowned museums, and fascinating galleries all throughout Austin, Texas.
Houston: If you have an interest in space travel then Houston is where you’ll want to be. Space Center Houston is a fascinating place for anyone, even those who don’t know much about space travel. Houston is also home to a wide variety of museums ranging from The Museum of Natural Science, to The Museum of Fine Arts and even to The Museum of Funeral History.
Dallas: Home to six different sports teams, this is the city for sports fans. That includes the Cowboys, Mavericks, Stars, Wings, FC Dallas, and the Texas Rangers. It will be easy to find a game to attend any time of the year.
If you’re not interested in sports, you can go to any area in the town for entertainment. In uptown, you can find trendy restaurants and boutique shops. Downtown you can find a number of museums. In the Arts District, you can explore wonderful sights and live events.
San Antonio: Whether you want to visit the Alamo, hear music at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, or go skydiving indoors at iSky, there is no shortage of entertaining attractions to enjoy while living in San Antonio.
Planning a Move to Texas
The most obvious difference between California and Texas is of course the density. The population density of California is 252 people per square mile, while the population density of Texas is less than half of that with 110 people per square mile. The density means that it would be nearly impossible to rely solely on public transportation outside of major cities. It may be time to get a car if you’re moving from California to Texas.
When looking your wardrobe, be sure to keep in mind that Texas has much more variation in their weather. California may keep a similar temperature no matter what season it may be, but Texas is home to a blistering summer. Luckily, it still won’t get that cold, as Texas temperatures should remain above freezing through winter.
With the importance of this move, it may be smart to do more research on the moving companies you may be working with, check out the federal mover database to see information including where they’re located, safety information, and complaint history.
