Wow.....really??? As if throwing in Galveston, Waco, Beaumont, and plenty of others is going to steal the votes from Dallas and Houston????

Anyways, I voted Waco just because this is poll is going to pretty much be one sided.

Why wasn't Abilene and Tyler included in the list above? They both have decent skylines for cities of their size (both about 100k in population). Anyway, Houston wins the contest IMO.

This should just be a TX skyline appreciation thread, since obviously Dallas and Houston are the only skylines that should be in contention for best in TX, and even then the title clearly goes to Houston.

Austin is developing a decent size skyline, but its still far behind Houston at #1 & Dallas at #2 in Texas.

Fort Worth & San Antonio aren't all that bad either.

Pound per pound, Corpus, Waco, Tyler, Midland, & Lubbock are all quite impressive given their smaller sizes.

El Paso & Amarillo are pretty weak.
