There are some similarities in terms of culture, but it's hard to compare them directly because Fort Worth is part of the fourth largest metro area in the country and is experiencing all of the benefits of the current economic boom in North Texas. I think Fort Worth compares better with Nashville in a head to head match than it does OKC.

Wait, then we must be talking about something completely different. Nothing is more generic than Houston, Dallas, Atlanta...you put them side by side and most foreigner couldn't tell them apart, other than the fact that they look american

If they actually spent time within the cities themselves, they'd be able to tell them apart. Their suburbs are of course indistinguishable (as is the case with most of suburbia) but that's not true for the cores of the metros.

Oklahoma City on the other hand is exactly that.
I think it says something that even the most generic city in America that most people have heard of, like Oklahoma City, still has upscale hotels and restaurants.

Nowhere in America is totally bland in the truest sense.
