A family friend had told me about Texas before, how is Houston?

Going by what you say you might like DC. It has good history, decent paced, and I am sure that you should be able to find decent housing in the Metro Area. I have only ever been in the US for a few months in total so I guess more detailed accounts can be given by NP10, Fusion, or SS.

Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
I have heard that in America banned bookmakers.
Do not need to go there.
Otherwise, you can not receive additional income from cricket.
In Soviet Russia, multi makes you.
Im a US citizen, I have a home there and I am very happy with my life and the opportunities given to me in America - but I found it a difficult place to live at times. I can maybe attribute that to the two things I look for the most (competitive amateur adult sports and a social pub culture) are not done particularly well in the US. It isnt bad or hard to live there but I have found other places more accessible on a social level. Of the places I have lived in the US then I would recommend Northern Virginia - young, professional, close to DC and the countryside. Actually, I fully endorse Northern Virgina/Metro DC area. I have had great times living there.
To be balanced though, as James T. Farrell said "America is so vast that almost everything said about it is likely to be true, and the opposite is probably equally true." America is its own world and there is much as much to love as there is for outsiders to point at and sneer. You will always be able to find people who share your passions and interests no matter what they are - I did though it was harder to do so than some other places elsewhere.
Just a cultural observation, primarily about the middle-class, they tend to be more reserved and less open than Australians, Brits, Kiwis etc. It isnt a bad thing but it takes time for them to let their guard down and you have to build relationships.
I know a number of Australians in the US. They all have very good lifestyles - America can give you that in spades. Im not convinced they would all say they were happy though. Whether that says more about them or America? I dont know

As soon as you said "eclectic", I immediately thought of Austin. The only problem is that it's surrounded by the rest of Texas. Which you may actually like. Austin is a bit of an anomaly in Texas - the rest of Texas calls it the "The People's Republic of Austin"
