If you're a part of the influx of homebuyers moving to the Lone Star State, it's probably pretty overwhelming to search and decide on the best places to live in Texas (with how large the state is, and all).

Living in the busy, tourist-filled major cities might not sound appealing, and there are so many suburbs and towns that you may have no idea where to start looking.

No fear! We curated this list of the best places to live in Texas for young adults using ranking and review website Niche and my local expertise as the lifelong Texan who wrote this article.

We analyzed the cost of living, house prices, job opportunities, family-first neighborhoods, safety and the overall vibe to come up with these recommendations.
