    Dallas hits most of those — probably more tech jobs in Austin but Plano/north Dallas schools are absolute powerhouses if that is your top priority. Weather will be hot, but India is probably somewhat similar. Look at Plano, Frisco, McKinney, Allen.

    Schools, food = Dallas
    Safety depends on your location in Dallas
    Low cost of living is tricky, the cheaper the place the similar kind of crowd to be expected
    Not many things to do there

    Austin has decent schools, lots of jobs, happening place and is getting expensive by the day. Relatively safer because smaller than Dallas, majority of the crowd is college students or workers.

    Houston similar to Dallas. But weather is a bit much to handle.

    My pick would be Austin any day.

    PS: Indian guy who has lived in all three of these cities

      Yeah it’s not the prettiest area or the most happening, but if OP’s priority is family and good schools, it easily beats out the other Texas metros

    I will definitely look at demographics for each city if you want some cultural stability. I think Dallas/Plano is good for all the things you mentioned..
