It's one anchor city (Houston/Atlanta) paired with multi-nodal cities (Dallas-Fort Worth/Miami-Fort Lauderdale) and all are roughly about the same size or so. They're definitely in the same ball park, same region, nearly the same weather wise (with different variations of course), and totally different cities but unique upon themselves.

So which tag team group do you prefer more? Houston & Miami-Fort Lauderdale or Atlanta & Dallas-Fort Worth? Basically if you were offered one of these sets of cities and had to pick a group which one of these two would it be and why?

Criteria:
- Economy
- Education
- Safety
- Food/Dining
- Recreational activities
- Parks
- Scenery/Surrounding
- Nightlife
- Shopping
- Location (Sea or inland?)
- Skyline
- Public Transit
- City scape
- Anything else you can think up

So which would it be? Miami-Fort Lauderdale & Houston OR Dallas-Fort Worth & Atlanta?

Houston and Miami, they both feel significantly more cosmopolitan than their counterparts, plus they are both near large bodies of water.

I don't care if Miami-Fort Lauderdale & Houston are in Hurricane prone areas, having the coast is so worth it all. I love it! And I love being near it, being near a large body of water is a serenity in a world of its own, in my opinion.

That isn't to say Houston & Miami-Fort Lauderdale are better than Dallas-Fort Worth & Atlanta, but everyone has preferences, and for me, I do prefer being near the coast.

Houston & Miami-Fort Lauderdale has way more to offer with it's amenities, economies, and tourism(considering that they would be a combined industry).
