Again we are a great state to live in, and when it comes to businesses moving into Texas, a ton of California businesses relocated to Texas.

Texas is a great state to live in, so great people are flocking to move here.

For anyone that lives in Texas, it’s known that Texas is the greatest state in the U.S.  We love our state, we love our cities, and we love being Texan.

When it comes to living here, we also know we have a very unique way of life.  It’s a great mixture of culture and businesses.  From ranching to factories, tech to farming, fishing to rodeo, Texas has got it all.

We love our state, and it seems more and more people are moving into our state.  Why would people want to move here?  It’s a great place to run a business.

According to a new study by Hire A Helper, Texas is the 2nd most moved to state.

  • 17% of Americans that moved went to a different state, the highest percentage since 2015
  • In absolute terms, Florida (5.8%), Texas (4.8%), and California (3.2%) saw the greatest share of all moves that took place in 2021
  • New Jersey (-54%) and California (-49%) had the highest ratio of people leaving versus moving in
  • The Great Resignation also revealed itself in the study as 19% of Americans who moved in 2021 blame the pandemic for making them reassess their priorities and quit their job.

Again we are a great state to live in, and when it comes to businesses moving into Texas, a ton of California businesses relocated to Texas. Businesses such as Oracle and Hewlett-Packard. Heck, Elon Musk has even built a factory here.

It seems the lower cost of living and tax rates have made Texas look great for businesses.

I agree, Texas is a great place to live, I just hope that as more people move into the state, we keep the things that make Texas great!

10 Things You Learn When You Move to Texas

Here are 10 things you will learn about Texas if you move here from another state.Whataburger Is Superior

Whataburger Is Superior

You cannot be considered a true Texan if you don’t love Whataburger. Texans will fight tooth and nail to prove it’s the best burger joint compared to any other establishment.

Everyone Owns a Truck

Most every family in Texas has at least one vehicle that is a truck. Many people own trucks because they need them for work, but there are also plenty of people that buy them just because they think they’re cool and like having a truck. Both reasons are valid. It’s simply crazy how many trucks there are in Texas. They are also most commonly white, black or red.Football is a Big Deal

Football is a Big Deal

Football is huge in Texas. It doesn’t matter what level of the sport, if it’s high school, college or professional, it’s all hyped up. There are high school stadiums that are the size of some college stadiums in others states. It’s absolutely wild to non-Texans.Don’t Wear Cowboy Boots and Skinny Jeans

Don’t Wear Cowboy Boots and Skinny Jeans

No matter how fashionable you may think it looks, you shouldn’t wear your jeans tucked into your boots. A true Texan wears their boot-cut jeans or, for women, a dress with their boots. The only places I have seen skinny jeans and boots accepted are are at country-western bars and college football games.Ma’am and Sir are a Must

Ma’am and Sir are a Must

This isn’t only a Texas thing; it’s more of a southern thing in general. It doesn’t matter the person’s age (although you usually say it to someone older), you use it to show respect. From my experience, in non-southern states it can be taken as a sarcastic remark, like you’re calling a person old.Texans Are Die-Hards for Their Universities

Texans Are Die-Hards for Their Universities

Texans will go to hell and back to support their alma mater. Along with that, they’ll put down any other Texas university no matter the reason. Whether you love Texas Tech, Texas A&M, UT or another college, you’ll be tied to them forever.It’s Normal to See Cows by the Road

It’s Normal to See Cows by the Road

Every Texan knows the pure joy of seeing a heard of cows grazing along the side of a country road. Many people, including myself, can’t hold back exclaiming “cows!” no matter how many times you drive past them.Crosses Are a Classic Home Decoration

Crosses Are a Classic Home Decoration

Most every Texas home you step foot in will have some form of cross decorations. Whether it’s a wall of crosses or a cross over the entryway of the home, they’re a staple in many houses.Buc-ee’s Is a God-Send

Buc-ee’s Is a God-Send

Everyone in Texas seems to adore Buc-ee’s. You’ll even hear stories about people taking road trips just to visit them if there isn’t one nearby. Everyone goes crazy if they have a location built in their area, and you’ll never hear the end of how great the company is.Texans Love Texas

Texans Love Texas

Last, but certainly not least, is the fact that Texans are extremely proud of their state. It truly is a great state to live in, and Texans make sure to let others know it.
