Been to all of them….lived in two of them and parents are from another on the list. Most familiar with Miami and least familiar with Dallas (although I have been there 4 times). I am, however, VERY familiar with DFW.

I chose Chicago. The only reason I would have to go is for Family. Otherwise, i don't know much about the city, and what there is to do there.

Dallas and Houston

The opportunity never presented itself and I've never really had much interest in manufacturing reasons to go. I've never been anywhere in Texas but if I did I'd probably target Austin.

I would run into Southern expats all the time up there. There are more in NYC than you might think.
completely agree...

I have never been to Houston. Not Chicago either, but I voted Houston because I have at least driven by Chicago a few times on the interstate. Just never had any reason to I guess. I mostly travel for work. The only cities that I have gone to for vacation (in the US) are: Las Vegas, San Francisco, San Diego, New Orleans, DC, Atlanta, NYC, Portland, and Raleigh.

Totally agree. Dunno how some people bash or praise places so strongly when they have never set foot there

No reason cities like Houston and Dallas never get any love and thats because a third of the country hasn't been to these cities.So I know what it have to do with the cowboys/indians and that it is country and they ride on horses which isn't appealing for city folk life lmao.
America get out more!!!!!!!!!!
Thats the reason why alot of people are bashing southern cities but have never been to them not going to say any names.
