I'm gonna miss the charm of suburban Philadephia, especially the rolling hills, tall trees and little farms all over. They don't have any of those in Houston. Here's what I won't miss... the Schuylkill Expressway, that south Philly accent, months of freezing weather, and the prices. I was pleasantly surprised to see that when Forbes ranked the best counties in the country to raise a family, Montgomery county, PA where I live ranked 9th and Chester county (I'm right on the border between the two) ranked 10th. Fantastic schools, good shopping, short commutes and not-too-outrageous home prices went into the ranking. Great education is one thing Philly excels at, for sure.
