If you're a Texan you know that you live in the best state in the nation (I know alot of Californians and people from other states hate to see that. Oh well ). Of course, the best state has to have the best cities, but which is the best of the best. Is it Houston? Dallas? Austin? San Antonio? El Paso? Or is it America's most overshadowed city (Ft. Worth)? It could be none of these. Who knows (I do. It's Ft. Worth).

The poll was valid until you included Lubbock and Arlington in the list. Lubbock is tumbleweed central, and Arlington's only claim to fame is it's between Dallas and Fort Worth.

No offense...but who voted for El Paso? That city is a waste from what I'm seeing on these forums. Arlington is Arlington, what else can you say about it?

That was me. I don't really think El Paso is the best city in Texas, I just voted for it because I used to have a really negative impression of El Paso, but reading these forums I have come to realize that a lot of what I believed about the city was wrong. For example, a co-worker of mine was from El Paso and said that the city was full of crime and that razor-wire fences were a status symbol there. But El Paso is actually a relatively safe city by large city standards. Also El Paso is often neglected by the rest of Texas, so I was just showing EP some love.

I have to say San Antonio and Houston. Of course it depends on what you mean by best.
