I am about to move to Galveston Texas. Really pretty place lots of sea life. I know people say not crystal clear but hey I canít afford crystal clear water. My wife is going to school to do marine biology. They say the slightly murky water is great for the marine life to breed in the golf lots of dolphins and green sea turtles. We love it there and the cost of living is not too bad. Canít get to pricey if you want college students to rent. Lol. So I would have to say Texas and on the beach for me.
