    It does not surprise me that someone from Dallas (assuming Dallas proper) had never been to Ft. Worth. As someone from Arlington - midway between the two, I can say that I've been to both and I'd rather spend time in Dallas. Still Dallas has numerous faults of its own and I have no intention of remaining longer than I have to.

    Also as a former Ag-town resident, it's very hard to call it a suburb. 325000+ people, 50th largest city in the US... Still, Arlington sucks, just not as much as Houston.

    DFW has gotten much better in the last few years since the new terminals opened.


    I am rather indifferent about Austin, but apparently I am the only one.


    :p

    It's a great city if you like music, film and food all served with a decidedly unique bent.

    It's a very liberal place despite being the capital of a Conservative state...I've heard it referred to as "a blueberry in the middle of a bowl of tomato soup".

    The most ubiquitous slogan/bumpersticker is "Keep Austin Weird", pretty much sums it up.

    I arrived in Austin in the late '80s, and left in the late '90s. It was barely hanging on to the qualities that differentiated it from other Texas cities by the time I left, and it is unrecognizable now. It's not weird, and they haven't kept up with the infrastructure to support the population explosion. I would likely choose Houston or Dallas over Austin if I had to move back to Texas. At least they know they're big cities.

    San Antonio is my favorite city in Texas. The best blend of Texan, American, and Mexican culture. I've not lived there for a while now, but I understand that over the last 5-6 years it's seen some very heavy high cultural development north and south of downtown.

    Austin is fun to visit, but at this point I don't think I'd want to live there.

    There are a lot of fantastic things about Dallas, but it has always struck me as lacking the cultural diversity of some of the other Texas cities.

    I have a love hate relationship with Houston.


    Ultimately, I'm very family oriented, and all things equal (so, Olmos Park in San Antonio, Rice Village in Houston, and Highland Park in Dallas), I can't think of a better city in Texas to raise children than San Antonio.

    I'll have to cross-post this to the beer thread, as well, I guess. Mass, stroll through the cherry blossoms, antiquing, vintage shopping, and beers with my wife, today. The shirt was not the strongest choice; I went with purple because it's the first Sunday we've made it to mass during Lent. Next week I'll go with pink for Palm Sunday. I was going to wear a dark purple tie, as well, but couldn't find it this morning. Not sure it would have worked with the navy anyway. This was taken at the end of the day, and my pants seem t have slid down at the waist, so they're actually a bit shorter than they look in the photo. Half an inch or so, maybe.

    People have different preferences, of course. I think one of the best things about this forum is when we acknowledge a person's preference and discuss the best way to execute it. So the focus is on execution. Given a certain set of preferences, Texas is probably the best place in the world (especially if you want to live in the United States and not deal with a super shit economy). Given a certain set of preferences, I'd say the Bay Area also can't be beat. Same goes for the Pacific Northwest. But if you want to live in New York, you'd probably be happier in London. If you want to live in Florida, go move to the Mediterranean or some Caribbean island. If you want to live in Baltimore, I don't know, maybe try a landfill? [​IMG]

    My city preferences, if I could live anywhere (only going to places I've been to)

    London
    San Antonio (I really love Mexican-American culture, and everywhere else in the US is way too white)
    Hong Kong
    Berlin
    San Francisco
    Munich
    D.C.
    Busan
