I have knowledge of each area and I will start with Dallas it seems to me that Tyler,Tx seems to have a similar vibe going on with stuck up people like in Dallas and the loop 323 seem to remind me of loop 12 in Dallas.Atlanta and Macon,ga seem to me kinda different in a way with Atl being more of a hiphop scene and Macon more a country music scene and the people are more friendlier in Atlanta then Macon,ga not knocking Macon but just haven't ran into friendlier people.Houston seem to have rubbed off on Lufkin,Tx with Lufkin trying to build there infrastructure the way Houston is and the vibes are about the same its all about landing a job and raising familys and both cities seem to have nice people.
I would like to get the input of others take on this topic!

I can only say that Atlanta and Macon have little to nothing in common.
Sherman burned one, spared the other.

Here we go again with this same poster's insatiable fascination with pairing Atlanta against anything in Texas. We aren't thinking anything about Texas, and I'm almost positive the same can be said with regard to Texans concerned with us.

Just worry about Nacogdoches' offerings, and stop obsessing over a place you've probably never even set foot in. Enough is enough.

The only thing Houston & Lufkin have in common is their geographic location in SE Texas. They're both in the Piney Woods, well, Houston partially is, Lufkin is in the Deep Piney Woods.

Lufkin is a little town of 30,000 people 100 miles north of Houston, a booming metropolis of 6.5 million people.

You can't compare the culture of both places because there is nothing to compare. Lufkin doesn't even have a Pho restaurant for crying out loud!!!

Its Chinese food is terrible too.
