There is areas in texas with a few large cities like bell county,Brownsville area,Midland and Odessa and a few more but I think if if BUDA,KYLE,SAN MARCOS,AND NEW BRAUNFELS join together and connect to the Austin and San Antonio that would be a large metro area.

Probably not as nice as the image I have in my head though.
I agree, the city doesn't even have a decent seafood restaurant and it is on the sea. That should tell you a lot about the mentality of the cities

I was under the impression that Austin was growing north, not south. Was I mistaken?

Corpus Christi politicians & residents refuse to embrace growth of any kind. Any new development or idea that comes up results in years of debate & $$$ spent on 'studies'. Nobody there is willing to act on anything.
