I think it's safe to say that Texas could pass as a "southern version" of California. In many ways no, but in many ways yes. Both are the two largest states geographically, and by population in the contiguous United States.


What I thought was neat was to point out what would be what in Texas and California; I thought my comparisons matched well.

Los Angeles = Houston: Both are the largest by population

San Francisco = Dallas: Both seem to be #2 cities in their state(I guess debatable) and both seem very similar, because both seem to be in rivalry with the larger city in their respectable state

Oakland = Fort Worth: Both get overshadowed by the bigger important sister city next to them

San Diego = San Antonio: lol they just seem very similar

Sacramento = Austin: Both Capitols and "Weird" if you will


Just my outlook on things, I know it all might not be facts. Just my opinions, thought it was fun.

No. Its not safe to say.

Texas and Southern California each have their own unique styles and cultures.
Texas is also much slower paced (although I have never been to Houston, so I can't really speak about that city)

Heavens, no. Texas is absolutely nothing like California. I mean some things are the same-- horrific urban planning, terrible infrastructure and godawful subdivisions-- but that's about where it ends.

They're both big, and they're both states, but there isn't much more to it than that.

I think many Texan women are pretty attractive.

Its just the way they dress that makes them look weird (especially that look with the jeans hiked up to their waste and then cinched tight with a wide belt - it makes the most attractive women look like a fat-arse tard)

When did Dallas become 2nd tier to Houston. Every weather map I have looked at usually has Dallas on it before Houston. Just a further note DFW is the 4th largest metro area in the country over 6.5 million residents. Only on City-data.

No, Texas is Texas.

Just like Florida is Florida, New York is New York and Massachusetts is Massachusetts. None of them are a version of anything.
