Texas has room to spread cities, essentially forever, so while one would think there'd already be high speed rail to San Antonio, an hour away, or subway in any of the cities, Texas builds freeways while the cities and developers shun parking. We are able to buy a nice home with some property, something we couldn't buy in the Bay Area despite my wife and I making 20 to 30 percent more than average families on the Peninsula. I always made decent money and lived comfortably in the East Bay. Price played a huge part, I wanted to be able to live comfortably in a city and housing costs in the Bay Area made that impossible, especially at my age.We get to live in a very family-oriented town within 15 miles of downtown ATX. I've mostly lived paycheck-to-paycheck in Austin, but now I own my own business and that should change soon. We are homeowners after being lifelong renters, which is exciting. Growing up in the Bay Area, I watched a lot of the personality of the area disappear as tech took over.The inventor of paraffin (kerosene) and industrial magnate James "Paraffin" Young had a house at Kelly, and was buried in the old Inverkip churchyard.David Livingstone was a friend of Young and a replica of a hut the explorer occupied near Victoria Falls was built in the grounds of Kelly as a memorial to Livingstone. A memorial on the shore road recalls 'The Gaiter Club', whose members included Anthony Trollope, Lord Kelvin, Lord Palmerston and the Earl of Shaftesbury. Burnet's episcopal Inverclyde Church, which stood on the shore road of Undercliff Road and was demolished in 1970.
There are a lot of other really nice cities (like Austin) that are starting to be able to compete with the Bay Area in both atmosphere and job opportunities.
I originally left for school and I wanted to go somewhere where I was a little out of my comfort zone.
When I had the opportunity to go back to the Bay Area I decided not to because I want to be able to buy a house at some point and I'm not sure if that will ever really be feasible for me in the Bay. One of the main reasons that I chose to move to Austin is because it is the San Francisco of Texas.
But my husband had a better salary in San Francisco and great benefits. I am a graduate of SFUSD, SF State and UC Berkeley. I rep the Warriors, Raiders, even though my heart belongs to the Pittsburgh Steelers. I miss Muni, BART, flaming hot days in September, foggy damp mornings, the fog horn, the siren on Tuesdays at noon. It felt like the arts and culture of the area died out, which made it an unappealing place to live. I'm able to afford living in the center of the city and Seattle is full of great food and places to explore.
The pay in Austin hasn't caught up with the rising cost of living, so we are making less money, but living more cheaply. As I age, my income level will not allow me to age in the place that shaped and molded who I am and my world view. I was also able to take advantage of employment opportunities that weren't available to me in the Bay Area. The people of Boise are staunch conservatives with no education and completely judgmental.
