There are thousands of people flocking to the Lone Star State every year, and for good reason. Retirees, students, techies, and entrepreneurs alike are moving to Texas at a fast rate. Texas followed Florida and landed at #2 in the US for population gains from out of state residents in 2014, with 538,572 people moving to Texas from out of state. If you’re considering making the move, let us give you some reasons to move to Texas.

10. Blue Bell Ice Cream


We have the best ice cream in the world, hands down. Come get some.

You won’t feel crowded (unless you move to a downtown of course). If you’re looking for openness, Texas has it.
