Houston comes in a close 2nd.
Phoenix comes in 3rd.
Then in no order comes Dallas, San Antonio, Orlando, Atlanta, and many more sunbelt cities.

The answer can easily be found by looking at the area and population of each metro in question.

If we are talking about Metro area, Atlanta hands down.

If we are talking city, Phoenix and Las Vegas.
