However, as much as I would like to think that the flow of Americans to Texas nowadays is for a taste of authentic Texas, my guess, God bless them, is that most are moving for authentic jobs.

I went with San Antonio. Seems like if one city above all others in the state embodies the state's history, it's San Antonio.

Fort Worth. It's amazing that it's so close to Dallas, yet the cities have almost completely opposite personalities.

Not a Texan and I've never even been but from my own conceptions and some responses on this thread I'd have to say Dallas/Fort Worth.

Either Dallas or Fort Worth.

Can't be both...

I associate Texas with Dallas and maybe Austin. Look into the others;

Houston: Famous for “Houston, we have a problem”. The only problem with Houston is that most people think that Houston is in Florida and is the name of the city where Kennedy Space Center is located.

San Antonio: Most young people would think that San Antonio is a GTA-title and old people would think that San Antonio is a city in Mexico or Southern California.

El Paso: I think of the brand “Old El Paso” and Mexico. I think most people associate El Paso with those two rather than El Paso, Texas.

Arlington: I think of Arlington County in West Virginia rather than Arlington,Texas.

Corpus Christi: A scary name but do most people associate it with Texas? I do not think so.

Fort Worth: Could be a city anywhere in United States and so do people think.

Plano: I think of the Plano Cultures in Canada but most people would just say it is a suburb to Denver.

Laredo: The name sounds so Spanish that it could be Spanish. Apparently, it is a town in Spain.

Most people think of George W. Bush, Harsh criminal code, Western Movies, Republicans, Oil-tycoons, low taxes, the lonestar flag, ranches, pick-ups, high-ways, The Alamo, horses, cattle, oil-rigs, tex-mex, Texas barbecue and cowboys when they think of Texas. The only Texican-city people would know about is Dallas (because of the TV-show) and some people with some deeper knowledge would think of Austin because it sounds naturally to say Texas after.
