Lets not flatter ourselves. Even the New York Times gave it a mediocre rating.

Of course, Houston has Galveston!

Seriously theres a lot of great history in that city, and a lot of nice architecture. Past the murky water, its a great place.

While it might not be on the scale of Ft. Worth, both offer different atmospheres and environment to their respective anchor in their MSA.

It would be my pleasure, but it makes one wonder, are you trying to belittle Tyler by comparing a small city of 110k to a major city of 1.2 million? If so, you have indeed stooped to a new low on this forum.

Just opened back in August
Downtown Tyler Arts Coalition

Recently moved into the historic Downtown Tyler Liberty Theatre that is currently under renovation
East Texas Symphony Orchestra (ETSO) Tyler, Texas

Hosts some of the very same top name performances that come through Dallas & Houston.

Have you ever been to northpark, grapevine mills or galleria dallas? Of course dallas has good shopping (Hevean compared to ama) Dallas has their own tv show (Its called "Dallas" BTW. Dont know of a "Houston" Show)

Back to skylines, while I have not been to H-town, I like dallas better because Houston is boxy(er) and dallas is like what a city should look like at night. In the day, its more architectually varried and less "copyandpasta" (except for the transco building. [So thats where Boa's twin went to ] )

I remember when I last took I20 out of dtd, I was like OMGOMG LOOK AT DAT!! and for what ever reason it left a huge impression on me and is what got me started in skylines.

When Im on 287 and I see DTD, I know im in the Emerald City.
Ps I typed this on a WII so dond expect pics.

I see what you're doing here, but you're really overrating the Dallas Arts District. It's just a big collection of museums, theaters, and public art. Houston has that, but separates them into two different districts: Theater District in Downtown and the Museum District. Combine those two and it is much larger than the Arts District. Dallas' Arts District is nice and will definitely help out Downtown Dallas in the future though.
