Haha...Kate.....I guess my opinion might possibly be a little off because all I have lived in have been "bible belt" towns. Never on purpose though. Plano, Arlington, and some other parts of Dallas are more accepting of different lifestyles and free thinkers.....kind of like Austin. But again that is just my expierance.



Side note: I have always wanted montessouri schools.

I would never call Plano "liberal"...but maybe that's just me. ;)



I live in Garland, which is a VERY right-wing part of town (if you can call it that). It's an older part of the metroplex with older homes and more established neighborhoods. Bonus? Usually cheaper homes, too. Plano can be nice but I've found that the people drive like assholes, the houses are too expensive for what you get, and the HOAs are insane. :P



Frisco is REALLY hoity-toity, and Alan is okay. Kinda far north, though. Richardson is a nice area, and the north Dallas area like Addison and Carollton, too.



I've never heard that people from CA aren't welcomed here...usually Yanks are kinda giggled at, but that's about it. Tornados...eh. Seems like Montague and Cook counties get the brunt of it, but the DFW area can get some good storms. I don't know anything about home schooling in Texas because I send my kids to Montessori school...so if you want a recommendation for good Montessori schools in the area I can do that for you. :)



Good luck on your house hunting!

Well plano is an awesome place to live but it is a very liberal place. You said you are christian so you will probably have no problem homeschooling and finding a good group for you seeing as it is damn near impossible to find a non religious based homeschool group or curriculum here. It took me months to find one to use because of that. Most people don't really care where you are from.
