Dallas is the more stereotypical Texas and American city. Houston just feels more cosmopolitan and worldly to me.

Houston is more worldly and gritty, Dallas is more cosmopolitan and refined.

If you are going to say Lake Conroe is in Houston then you are going to have to add seven or eight more lakes to Dallas.

Not a fan of either but Houston is a better overall city than Dallas. Dallas feels small compared to Houston.

dallas feels more country. it feels very texas (NEGATIVE). Houston seems more modern and liberal.

Dallas is more ritzy, but it's not more cosmopolitan.

I... don't... see that.

I just don't.

How is Dallas the more sterotypical Texas city? What, is it because they've got a few cows under a bridge?

Go ahead. I'd put Lake Conroe alone up against every lake in DFW any day. To me, in order for a lake to be beautiful, it actually has to have TREES around it. lol

I think what they meant is that Houston has never been that much a part of the "Texas cowboy" culture. Atleast not as much as Dallas. Culturally, Houston leans a little more to Louisiana.

Dallas also looks more like the rest of Texas: short trees, wide open prairie. Houston (and East Texas), on the other hand, looks more like a city in the southeast.
