Definitely live in the City of Plano, TX where the new Toyota Headquarter is.
Best schools, best parks, and best of many things!
California does not even come close as far as living expenses, housing prices, and fresh air and less traffic congestion comparing to California. I also moved from California to Plano in 2005.
I am a real estate , insurance, and mortgage broker.
My cel number= (972) 375-3175
