Hello everyone this is my first post on this forum.

I'm from LA and would like a comparison of the major Texan cities. I know very little about Texas overall and would like a basic breakdown of the personality of each city.

Thanks.

Most laid-back to least of those listed on the forum, imo (some may disagree):

Tie: Corpus Christi/El Paso
San Antonio
Ft. Worth
Austin
Houston
Dallas

San Antonio and Ft. Worth may be interchangeable.

Lefteri: Could you be a little more specific? That's a terribly general request.

I can really only say for El Paso - it's laid back, the best weather of any city in Texas, semi-desert and there's a mountain right in the middle of the town. Because the mountain and some other factors, El Paso can be more like 5 different towns, each having it's own different feel. Near the military base, it feels like a military town, but in other places, it's clearly a border city.

I second this. All the cities are so different, it's hard to find where to start to describe them. What are you looking for in a city?

Well for example, LA is known is California as the dangerous/materialistic/glamorous/fake city.
San Francisco is known as the eco/liberal/charming/gay city.
San Jose is the safe/tech-superpower city.
San Diego is known as the safe/beautiful/good-weather/white people city.

I'm really only looking for generalities on the cities here, even if some are a little exaggerated. I simply wish to see what each city's personality is overall like.

Thank you!

When I go to Houston, it feels like I left Texas and I'm back in Southern California.

Take it back. Your going to anger some X Californians. They don't like having their cities shamefully being compared to Texas cities.

Austin is the icing on the cake that is Texas. The rest is nice too.

Houston is the humid uncontrolled sprawling cheap friendly mess city
Dallas is the hot stuffy socialite friendly source of Texas stereotypes city
San Antonio is the Mexican Texas mecca attitude-free blue collar city
Austin is the burnt orange music hill country beauty tech government city
Fort Worth is the shedding its past up and coming nice place to live city
