Austin, some hills, the panhandle, some canyons, the rest is flat except for the fire ant mounds.

Is TX the best state of the USA? - Uhmmm, let me think, "NO". Didn't take too long either.

Wrong again, but I love how ignorant people are to Texas.

I lived in Dallas/Houston/San Marcos and now I'm in Austin and I'm sorry but Texas is pretty much a pancake! The hill country has some terrain.

Did you ever venture out to Mountain Creek Lake in Dallas? How about Cedar Hill or Duncanville or DeSoto? On the Fort Worth side, ever been to Benbrook?

Yes, north of I-30, DFW is pretty flat, but South of I-30, it isn't.

The Hill Country has a lot of terrain. West Texas has mountains. The Panhandle near Amarillo has some nice canyons (Palo Duro Canyon most notable). Near Houston is where the Big Thicket Forest starts, and on north into East Texas, the trees stay, but there are also some nice hills in the area.

Hills around dallas,Waco,Killeen,North of Houston,etc. Thanks for at least admitting you've never been to Texas or know anything about it so people wouldn't take your serious.

I lived in Dallas. Seemed pretty flat to me. Texas's charm seriously escapes me. Unless your from there or are making big bucks there, what's the point? So many states have so much more to offer.

I lived in Arlington, and will say it is not all flat. North Dallas is flat, but like I said, South of I-30, DFW really isn't all that flat.

Sure have I lived in Seagoville (Down on Shadywood Lane behind the Church of Christ which faces the main drag). Had some friends who lived in Duncanville. Been to DeSoto a few times as well. Don't recall going to Benbrook or Cedar Hill because those names don't ring a bell at all. DFW area is flat compared to other areas of the country. Hell it is flat compared to other areas of Texas for that matter. Never said Texas doesn't have some great areas in it, because it does. Met a LOT of nice people there that I was glad to call my friends. Doesn't change the fact though that DFW area is flat, not Eastern Colorado, or Western KS flat, but still flat. Sure it has a few hills, but nothing to really stand out though. There are a few nice hills and valleys on the way between Abilene and Fort Worth though.
