The Hollywood-to-Houston population pipeline is overflowing, a new study suggests.

Harris County ranks as the No. 1 destination for people relocating to Texas from California, according to a StorageCafé data analysis . The No. 1 place of origin? Los Angeles County, home to Hollywood.

Among California counties, Harris County attracted the most new arrivals from Los Angeles County in 2019 (3,263), followed by San Diego County (840), and Riverside County (698).

Why are Californians swapping the West Coast for the Gulf Coast? A prime reason appears to be housing costs. The analysis shows the median price difference in 2020 between a home in Los Angeles County and a home in Harris County was $482,010. And even though they're paying less for a home in Harris County, L.A. transplants are gaining a median 577 square feet in additional space.

I am a full blood Texan . Born and raised here. I have been everywhere but none are as great as Texas. The reason is most of us and our Elect have always given the best for our Lone Star state. We don' t mind anyone coming in as long as you keep the Respect we have true bloods have for all things Texas. Don't bring the garbage in here that you left behind there. You will ruin the Only safe haven left.


we have a great state for a reason.....good economy, resources, employment, roads, schools, please keep in mind it's great because of our laws and successful government. please leave the liberal failed ideas on the west coast. thank you.
