For example: "free from local, provincial, or national ideas, prejudices, or attachments; at home all over the world."

I haven't spent any time thinking of what my definition would be. But obviously it's not a one liner.
Urbane has nothing to do with cosmopolitan, Dallas wins this easily.

Urbane is a synonym for cosmopolitan, but usually as it applies to persons.

I love Seattle, but Dallas comes off as more culturally diverse and such.

Seattle is not right on the ocean like San Francisco is. Seattle does NOT have chilly summers.

We normally have gorgeous summers in the mid to upper 70s. Very sunny from July through September. You will rarely see rain. A good 10 degrees warmer than San Francisco in the summer. And we are so far north the sun angle gives us incredibly long days.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Seattle summers are the best in the country in terms of climate.
Seattle summers are sublime.

Yeah. Iím not going to say one is more cosmopolitan that the other but Dallas is unquestionably more ethnically diverse.

Seattle is the kind of place that makes you want to start going to church and be a stand-up citizen, but not because of anyone's lead.


Ya dig?


It's the kind of place that makes you question why you ever cared about anyone but yourself, and makes you realize any culture you were looking to find was an empty, drugged out, oversexed, version of what you thought you would find. It makes you dislike your generation, your politics, even your clothing styles.


Texas isn't perfect but it doesn't have people moving to Texas specifically because they think they're better than the people from where they came from. Imagine that "too cool for you" but without anything legitimately cool about them other than sex and drugs. It's the less than glamorous, empty, cold, homeless sleeping under the nearby tree, soggy paradise you shouldn't ever aspire to move to.

Wow, that's a lot of presumption about why people move somewhere! There's more to your story.
