    San Francisco and the wine country around Napa and Sonoma are good culinary spots.

    Depends what you are looking for? SF is going to be a HUGE culture shock moving from TX. I know I lived in both. I love SF and IMO some of the best restaurants in the Country. WA Seatle at least is a great food town... nashville is also great. NY of course but that is a tough move... Give me more info I can give you ideas are you single married kids are you active ETC? I have been lucky to live in tons of places and i like them all for certain things...

    I agree with cheflayne, but.....San Francisco will be a HUGE CULTURE SHOCK coming from small town Texas.

    I landed in SF in 1980 to go to school coming from a small town, WOW............

    I lived in the city, couldn't get enough of it, lived in and worked around the East Bay for years, but always wanted to be in the city.

    I haven't lived in California for nearly a decade, San Francisco is the only thing I miss.
