Dallas: Sophisticated, Stylish, Artsy, Wealthy, Segregated, Clickish, Clean, Orderly Looking, Great Nightlife, Great Shopping.

Houston: Diverse, Laid Back, Did I Say Diverse, Rough Around The Edges, Chaotic Looking, Bursting With Energy, Intimidating, Great Dining, Not Dallas.

Aren't these two words contradictions of each other?

Let this be an important learning lesson.

Sacramentans are Proud, but not Arrogant.

You can be proud and humble, but not arrogant and humble.

Proud has both a positive and negative connotation, in this case it's positive.

Arrogant is always negative.

Disagree with the parts in bold. My take on those two cities...

Dallas: orderly, image-conscious, shopper's dream town, very different city from North to South, hot, proud, flashy

Houston: vast, multi-faceted, chaotic, fast-paced, humid, gritty, in a constant state of metamorphosis, strong disconnect between inner city and suburbs, disjointed

Dallas has a very good nightlife what are you talking about?

Its equal to or better than Houston's in some case.

For example, Houston doesn't have the Electronic Dance Music scene Dallas has...Dallas' is legendary (in Texas anyways). I would say the gay nightlife is a little bit better too. Every gay person I have come across say gays in Dallas are far more pretentious than gays in Houston, fitting the stereotypical Dallasite image.

Add Fort Worth in the mix & Houston's nightlife simply can't match The Metroplex as much as I hate to admit it. There's simply more of everything from line dancing to strip clubs to gay clubs to lounges to after hours & everything in between.

Don't even get me started on Austin. Its nightlife is great, but very confined, & not very diverse. Its mostly bars & live music versus clubs.

That's pretty subjective. Not everyone likes or is into EDM. The same argument could be made for Houston's hip-hop/Rap scene, which is much better than Dallas'. Call it a tie, I guess.

Not sure what this means. Are you saying "pretentious" makes for a better gay nightlife scene? Both cities have large LGBT populations and communities. Dallas has Oak Lawn, Houston has Montrose. There are nuanced differences, I'm sure... but as far as nightlife goes, I doubt Dallas slays Houston.

Dallas and Ft. Worth obviously are part of the same metro, but they are two very different cities that still function pretty independently of each other. I don't lump their nightlife scenes together. Two very different scenes that rarely interact.
