Definitely

Atlanta & Houston are both forested, lush cities with Houston also having a semi-tropical look on the South side of town (really all over the metro) being closer to the ocean.

Dallas is in the middle of a vast prairie with a few nice lakes here & there & a glorified drainage ditch aka the Trinity River next to downtown as a river. They spent billions of dollars building a fancy bridge that goes no where with no water under neath it even. Fort Worth is light years ahead of Dallas in developing its side of the Trinity.

I wouldn't say "light years"...

Like I said in another thread or post, both Trinity River projects are two different projects (for the most part) for two different cities.

You keep repeating this untrue statement. Dallas residents have already broke it down on why the bridges were built.

Every single day that goes by, the more ridiculous this statement sounds.

That "fancy bridge" sparked this development..........

When did Houston become a 'lush city' like Atlanta? You will never find this beauty in Houston's core. https://www.flickr.com/photos/buteos/9901188673

Well Houston is not as lush as Atlanta. But practically no city is. Maybe DC or Pacific Northwest cities. But Houston is a very lush city.
