I have lived in Austin (for about 3 years) and visited California on numerous occasions. I would by far, suggest Austin, Texas. Austin is one of my
favorite places on earth. The weather is amazing, the people are great and the scenery is beautiful. If you like nightlife, Austin has 6th Street,
which is similar to Bourbon Street in New Orleans. The street is lined with bars and clubs and every night (I think it's every night), they block the
street off, kind of like a huge block party, only larger (about 10 blocks, if I remember right). Also, they always find reasons to throw a
celebration, such as Eeyore's Birthday or SXSW. Austin is also known as the "live music capital of the world". If you like the outdoors, Austin is
sprinkled with parks that are absolutely amazing and with the pristine weather, almost all year around, the outdoor activities are boundless. I have
been all around the world and still Austin, TX remains as one of my favorite places. Hopefully one day, I can move back. Just my 2 cents.
p.s. - everyone who I've talked with that has either visited or lived in Austin, just raves about the city.
