Anyway, of course Texas. Most variety, more culture

Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, El Paso, Galveston, etc

You might have misinterpreted my post... you don't think any city in FL can compete with El Paso or Galveston???

When did I say that. I'm sure Florida cities outdo El Paso and Galveston, however you can't ignore the fact that Texas is more diverse and offers a more varied landscape. Texas is a mix of West/Southwest/Southern/Midwest/Coastal.

The only thing I can see Florida beating us in is nightlife, beaches, and attractions. It could be a tie when it comes to food.

Yeah, but only in one city. Basically I see Miami slightly above the Texas cities overall, but then Texas has 4 unique cities that beats anything Florida can offer up IMO.

Well it can go anyway with Miami, Dallas, and Houston. So it's not like Miami is like NYC or Chicago, where just that one city alone can influence votes. However, you have your own opinion and I can respect that. Miami does seem to be a more vibrant city than even Texas's largest cities.

Texas and Florida both offer lots of great cities.

Texas has more big and unique cities then Florida. I could live in Texas as long as it were near the gulf. I think Florida's cities have more attractions and entertainment to offer though. Both of these states' cities are very underrated on this forum.

I'd go with the Texas cities. Florida cities are cool by me, though.
