    Austin is only 80 miles south, Dallas is 150 miles north, Lake Travis during the summer, and cheap flights to Vegas.

    Downside is you get to see a lot of Iraq and Afghanistan.

    From that area, you will be fine. Central texas is a great startoff to going somewhere.

    Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, etc.

    Not a Texan, but after living there I don't understand how people can not like Texas. Good weather, great variety of food, and an abundance of different activities to fit nearly everyone's hobbies or interest.

    Same could be said of a lot of places. I just don't like the whole "OMFG texas" attitude, I don't like rednecks, I don't like mexican food, I don't like country music, I don't like the people, etc.

    I just did not enjoy the years I spent there. Weather is nice, thats about it.

    And I really have no idea where people come under the assumption that people in the south are friendlier. They aren't.
