Houston is Looking Pretty Good Here:  The Largest of the 12 cities where you can “live like royalty” on $60,000 – and it is great for lots of other reasons

 

Pack your bags, there are a dozen cities in America where you can live large on a average salary.  Houston is the biggest of the pack.  AND – it is a city with a terrific resume.

I’ll make my confession now:  Houston is sprawling, lacking in zoning laws to protect precious historical landmarks, rampant with ugly billboards and freeways that loom like cement spaghetti in the sky – and yet, and yet – it is an amazing, diverse, rich, welcoming, smart, innovative, authentic, unpretentious, surprisingly sophisticated, heritage-laden, open place to live. I love it.
