I'm very familier with both cities. Houston's northside greenery (ie. The Woodlands) is what really sets it apart from Dallas. City proper, Dallas and Houston appear almost identical as far as foliage.

Houston



Dallas

First off, I'm not your boy; I'm a grown man. Secondly, why are you going so far off topic by bringing up air quality comparisons?

So far off topic? Trees help to reduce pollution. Am I right or am I wrong?

Those two pics above are indeed strikingly similar in terms of foliage within each city.

Much of Texas is so much alike and I think these photos kind of show that. Great photos, by the way. Do you think it's safe to call Dallas and Houston the Twin Cities? I'm just kidding but if you hadn't labeled which is which, I'd never have guessed correctly.

To answer the OP's original question, "No, Dallas isn't ugly."

Hello Cha Ching.

I used to live in Chicago and visited Wisconsin frequently. They have some very pretty places up there.

Im a native of the City of Los Angeles, but am getting ready to move to Dallas in 2 weeks. We visited extensively and haveing spent lots of time in Southeastern Wisconsin, I might be able to offer a few points.

As far as the cities are concerned both have places that are really pretty and those that arent. There are alot of trees and parks in Dallas just as much so as the Chicago area though not as much as Houston or the deep South. The arts are very well represented in the area (especially Fort Worth). The one thing that my wife and I feel in love with about the area is the diversity of culture. Dallas is cosmopolitan and has every possible big city ammenity. Fort Worth is charming and is full of Southwestern culture. You will not find another area where two very different cities reside side by side (Minneapolis/St. Paul might be different, but not as much as Dallas and Fort Worth). Dallas has lots of areas with trees that are beautiful for walking through and exploring. Dallas also has beautiful prarie land. It has alot of things that are beautiful and also that are ugly, but the beautiful is easy to find.

Dallas is much bigger than Milwaukee and more international, though not to the degree of Chicago.
The one thing that I would say that you need to prepare yourself for is the heat. 100 degree heat for days at a time is very very normal in Dallas during the summer. However the winters are very mild.
