Waco has been busy!

Doesn't Houston have multiple "downtowns?"

All of these cities have reasonably good plans. At least, there's vision to help older, more run-down areas improve greatly. And I've seen the benefits of the revitalizations that have already taken place, so that's enough incentive to get the juices pumping.

I'd have to give first place to Austin, second to Fort Worth, and third to Waco. Now don't laugh at Waco, y'all; they've got a golden opportunity to play off of that Brazos River and that new Baylor stadium is a great kick-starter (uh, no pun intended).
