Miami and New Orleans would have been a more interesting comparison.

Atlanta. It is green, has more significant forest cover than the others, and better variety and collection of architecture (varying styles) than the others.

I gotta go with Phoenix. The landscaping and environment is so unique to the States, and is supremely clean. The steep mountains that ring the city are eye candy, especially when outlying ranges like the Mazatzal and Superstitions have some snow on their peaks.

Id say its between Phoenix and Atlanta. Dallas and Houston have beauty in their own ways, but its not as overt as the others.

Atlanta cause all those trees and hills. But I LOVE desert landscape too.

Houston and Dallas are just in fairly typographically boring locations.

I picked Atlanta.

TBH Dallas might be more competitive if it were pitted against the likes of Wichita, Kansas, and Lincoln, Nebraska.

Dallas doesn't have the tree cover of Atlanta or Houston, nor does it have topography like Phoenix or Atlanta.

When it comes to how it's built-out, Dallas has a lot of spiffy new stuff, but the city's record when it comes to preserving its history is spotty at best. Outside of Deep Ellum and Bishop Arts, historical buildings seem to have a 50/50 shot of being renovated or bulldozed. Several turn of the century buildings on Elm Street in downtown were razed and replaced by a bunch of bland, soulless dreck.
