So, here's the question, and I mean this in all good sport, no personal insults allowed:

Which city is the BEST and WHY, between Dallas and Houston?

I'll offer the opening volley in what I hope will be a lively Texas-friendly smack-down.

Houston might have heinous humidity, traffic, smog and floods, but I think it beats Dallas hands-down for culture. Seems like far more musicians, artists, and other interesting cultural types come from H-town. Dallas is good for... ummm..... shopping? And, uh... Malls?

Houston has a more cosmopolitan, multicultural vibe to me. OK, so one of the cultures happens to consist of cockroaches the size of economy cars, but heck, if we can train them then maybe we can use them to get around town and save on our energy bills, right?

Houston is a port city, it's near the ocean and it's very GREEN with beautiful big trees. Dallas is landlocked and doesn't even have an attractive waterway like San Antonio and Austin.

Anybody wanna take a shot at this? Which city represents Texas best? ALL IN GOOD FUN! Cuz I don't want this thread deleted or locked....

Well, first off... DFW isn't a city it is a metropolitan area consisting of 2 major cities and 100+ suburbs. Houston is a single major city that doesn't rely on another major city to boost its stats.

I will agree though that Houston and Dallas are the 2 dominant cities in Texas... Houston being by far the most dominant!

When you look at just the 2 cities, Houston outdoes Dallas over and over when it comes to the economy, business transactions, etc. Dallas is a strong business area, but is also extremely dependent on neighboring communities to help feed their economy particularly Fort Worst, I mean Fort Worth!

I am by far the biggest supporter of Houston and actually keep a running list of reasons why Houston is better than Dallas on a word document on my work laptop. Right now I am up to 415 reasons! If you ever need ammunition in an facts argument between Houston and Dallas you know who to contact! =)

Please do, I'd love to see that. And Fort Worth is awesome.

Also, is it just me, or does it seem to anyone else that Houston is the more internationally respected city/metro, but DFW is better respected and viewed as more important to Americans?

Is there a reason someone would be so focussed on another city outside of the one they live in?

I don't know how to read all of these more than 700 pages. Just one by one? That is going to be horrible. It may take one week.

Is there an easy way to read all these 700 pages altogether easily?


Please advise!!!

Most likely. And this no doubt has to do with the fact that Houston is known as an industry leader.

Dallas may just be the All-American golden town, and they are a more organized area than us, but years from now, I see Houston as having the larger global footprint. Just my opinion.
