Well at least our "disco ball" isn't the highest structure in the city.

Sorry, JJG.....I couldn't resist

Not trying to be offensive. I'm not even from SA or Dallas. Im from Corpus. Im just giving my opinion from an outsider/visitor's prospective.

Both cities are nice in their own ways. As a matter of a fact, both cities are beautiful. But SA has more character than Dallas though in my opinion. But Dallas has more varied culture while SA is heavily hispanic and focuses on that.

And JJG calm down. Lol.

I never even mentioned Houston. I was talking about San Antonio specifically yet you brought up Houston because you are so jealous of the place its not even funny.

Yes, in the right environment & setting tropical foliage does add characteristic to a city. In Houston & San Antonio's case palm trees go great because they're both so near the coast. Palm trees in Dallas look so misplaced its rather humerous seeing them up there on the open range.

No I used Houston as an example because I remember you bragging about that as an advantage for them also. Which makes me realize that you just have an obsession for palm trees..............No.

Palm trees are great places to store cockroaches and rats.

I hate palm trees they are ugly as hell. I wish Corpus had pine trees and forests like Houston and SE TX. Even when you get to Rockport they start having pine trees.

Man, I just love palm trees, but I agree that they belong along the coast and in the desert areas. They really seem out of place in areas like East Texas with lots of regular trees and pine trees.

Maybe in upper East Texas say north of I-20, but in Southeast Texas palm trees are everywhere mixed in with pine trees & other trees.

I'd say once you get about 200 miles or more from the coast, palm trees do start to look a bit ridiculous.

Here in Tyler we have quite a few in shopping centers, restaurants, & residences, but its not "over done" to the point of looking silly. Plus the extremely humid climate & soil around East Texas in general is ideal for palm trees to thrive.

Beaumont/Port Aurthur is just like another Houston with palm trees everywhere you look & even palm farms where they grow them for wholesalers & nurseries around the region.
