Dallas jumps in rank on coveted U.S. city list

Sun going down on another great day in Dallas.Feeling lucky to live in Dallas? You should. Our city made big gains this year in a nationwide poll that asked Americans where they would most like to live (excluding their current city and state).

Texas was the fourth-ranked state, up from No. 8 last year. The polling results were compiled by Harris Interactive. Dallas made a huge jump to the fourth-most popular city, behind New York, San Diego, and Seattle.

So, what is it that is making us suddenly popular as a fantasy relocation destination? We’ll have to do a little speculating here as the poll did not ask for specifics about why people wanted to live here.

Our best guesses:

The weather, warm with no snow.

The economic climate, growing and prosperous.

The people, friendly and outgoing.

The job opportunities, with so many large companies.

Good place to raise a family.

Affordable housing.

Diversity of residents with cultures from around the world represented.

Lots of great things to do for recreation and entertainment.

It’s also worth noting that respondents were also asked which city they would least like to live in, and Dallas polled pretty high with a placing of No. 6 (Houston is No. 7).

The No. 1 state where people said they would like to live was Hawaii, followed by California, so it’s clear that sunshine is a perceived benefit to the survey-takers.
