I am almost positive. It had nothing to do with a type of industry and more a reason to go - meaning they dont feel the need to create a reason to go

Dallas has more in common with Oklahoma & other Midwestern cities, Houston Southern Louisiana with its Cajun, Creole, & French influence. Houston is coastal while Dallas is landlocked.

I have been to all 6. The only ones I prefer to return to again funded by myself would be NY, Chicago and Miami.

Dallas: had work there
Atlanta: born there.
Miami: had grandparents there.
Chicago: had work there.
NYC: live there.

Never been to Houston...because it's far away and I've never had any reason or specific desire to make a trip there?

I haven't been to Atlanta in 31 years. I have plenty of family there, but no desire to visit the state of Georgia. I have never been to Miami, Houston, or Dallas. Never had any reason to visit these places.

To those of you who have never been to New York City, I envy you.

You're going to have the time of your life when you visit that city for the first time!

Well NYC can be a bit pricey, but rest assured they've got EVERYTHING you want in a city, and the vibe and atmosphere is unparalleled.

Some of those that live in NYC sometimes take it for granted, but this is a place like no other.
