There are so many things to see and do in California. My twin sister, Cindy Daniel and I grew up in Northern California and later moved to Orange County. The beaches, the thrift stores, Fisherman’s Wharf you name it- California has it!

Fort Worth may not have the beaches and sunsets, but what it does have is friendly folks everywhere you go, culture, Tex- Mex food, movies and horseback riding along with a few really great thrift stores.

Asked to compare the two and choose one? I can’t, I love California but I also love Fort Worth.

Main Street has been blocked with a brand new venue that is currently decorated for Christmas and I’m planning to take the little Pawners, Maryssa and Makenna Mahaney on over there en route to a wedding next Saturday.

I’m just as happy getting off the plane at LAX as I am at DFW and for good reason, I love to return to California but most of my family lives in Fort Worth!

While Texas had Six Flags, California has Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Magic Mountain (and, the beach!)

Texas has a few beaches in Galveston and Padre Island of course, but nothing that can compare with the Pacific Coast Hwy.

It’s truly a toss up since each state offers so many different options but, sharing your time between the two is for us- the best of both worlds!

Whether we are in Texas or California, we enjoy the people, the atmosphere and the wonders offered by both places.

Fort Worth, TX we love you! Beverly Hills, Orange County, Santa Monica, Carmel and San Clemente- we love you too!
