Charlotte, Raleigh, and Winston-Salem are pretty dull. But the Blue Ridge and the coasts trump anything in Texas in my opinion. Putting North Carolina aside, I really don't get what is so "pretty" about Texas. I understand the pride in culture and people, but the natural scenery is clearly trumped by Oregon, Washington, Colorado, California, Hawaii, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Arizona, Virginia. Heck I'd even rate Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama above it. It's nicer than most of its neighboring states. But that's not much to brag about.
You got that right! The Blue Ridge Parkway puts Texas to shame.

Well there are portions of Texas that have very few differences from North Carolina. Propably in northeastern Texas. Have you ever been there?

Yep been there done that. I still prefer any place in North Carolina over any place in Texas.

Nah, those places seem pretty dull and boring to me.

Aside from the western portion of NC, what is so "pretty" about North Carolina? Or Eastern South Carolina, or Florida, or Southern Alabama. Or any other state you just named. And I'm sorry, I'll take the Texas Gulf Coast with Corpus down to SPI over the NC Coast any day.

Well, considering the fact that we're talking about the cities' respective states, every post seems to be justified.

Even still, I'm sure there is some place in the eastern half of Texas that has been hidden from you, and would surprisingly be very reminiscient of North Carolina. Texas is like a small America. There's a little bit of pretty much everything here. And I mean that.
