LA is a great city, but doesnt have the tallest skyline...so i think it's the overall package.
well, i mean LA is LA. LA has everything just not a overwhelming skyline. LA has the beaches, hollywood, and so much more. But i do understand what your saying. DFW and Houston are different cities, and skylines are pretty much the major attractions here. LA isnt known for its skyline, it has hollywood, we dont have anything like that. But Houston has a better skyline and we have beaches, lol i just had to sneak that one in there.

That's just foolish considering the top growth areas are Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Austin, SA, etc.
I think you meant DFW not Dallas, lol, once again sorry had to do it.

I think Houston is nice. My sister flew into Hobby? and she said a lot of chicken fried steak is served there. I don't know much about Houston, other than it's kind of on the Gulf of Mexico and has lots of oil derricks. I don't see that much potential, but it's possible I guess. Houston and Chicago, is it possible? Yes,..just not probable.

Except for the Katrina burst, you can make the same argument for any principle city in America

Um, wrong. Downtown is pretty dull, but they have almost every other amenity that any large city has.

This coming from a person who cheerleads for a city that no one likes. Sorry, but it's true. And since when has Houston ever been overpriced? It's one of the cheapest cities where you get a lot of bang for your buck. It's definitely not overhyped. If anything, it's underrated.

No, actually it isn't. Have you ever even been to Houston? Downtown is generally reserved for the businesses and the club scene. Otherwise, the focus of Houston is the Museum District and Uptown areas.

overpriced? are you sure you've been to Houston because you've said some things that were completely wrong...I know your entitled to your own opinions but it is "almost" a fact that Houston is cheap.

I agree, Houston sports one of the lowest cost of living of the top 25 largest metropolitan areas of the country. In fact, if you plug into a cost of living calculator your income and compare it to a small city in Iowa or Indiana of a/b 150,000, you would find that the cost of living will be slightly cheaper in Houston or Dallas for that matter. I've done those calculations many times.

As for Houston's pulse, I agree, the Museum district and Uptown areas seem to have the focus...I would say the same is true for Dallas...Uptown/VP seems to garner a lot of the focus.
