Top 10 Best Cities In Texas

The Top Ten

1 Dallas

Went there as a child and the only thing I remember is that people there were rude and unfriendly. I'm 64 now and that is what stuck in my mind to this day.

I love Dallas, it is a totally safe and kid friendly city.

Dallas is a great place no matter what people say.

Great City

2 Houston

I live in Cleveland, TX which is about 40 miles north of Houston. Very nice scenery, and lots of nice people. New highways to get around better.

great museums: Menil, Fine Arts, bayou bend, ArtCar, contemporary craft... great food and events. including the Rodeo

Houston is the best City in Texas, the fastest growing, the most diverse, traffic is a mess but only in the rush out periods. Lots of jobs. I like it here.

This seems to be a population list (sort of)

3 Austin

Austin has been my home for my entire life and I just think the scenery is absolutely amazing, especially with all the hills in the area. There are so many things to do I can't fit it all in. The only thing I don't like about Austin is that I think it's too warm.

Waterloo Records. that's all I have to say. Has the hugest Selection of Bob Dylan I've ever seen. Austin has character. Dallas and Houston are so bland and industrial.

I LOVE Austin!
i live in Austin and its the best place I EVER lived in
and I've moved A LOT
its fun and has great weather
you SHOULD move here!

Austin is a great place and so many land marks here!

4 San Antonio

The place is so spaced out, and the attractions, and everything is just so great.

the greatest city ever. close to all the great sites

Living there is great, you just gotta take the heat in the summer. - westofohio

I was born in San Antonio and I love it but if you are going to be moving to San Antonio I definitely recommend shavano park as a naberhood to move into especially if you have a family or your starting a family they have great schools and great restaurants

5 Corpus Christi

The city with the most beautiful name " Body of Christ". Been here all my life. Love it but hate that we have summer almost all year and I love cold weather. don't have very cold winters. I find for the most part people are friendly.

Best attractions such a safe city. I've enjoy living in Corpus Christ, so many different things to do here.

The city looks run down once you get away from the beach.

6 Fort Worth
7 El Paso

I love this place even though I have never been there yet because I want to live here when I go to college and be free from all the severe storms and tornadoes in North Texas.

People are friendly and the city is very secure

Beautiful mountains and sunset. lots of culture and mexican food!

El Paso is underrated but I digress

8 Galveston

I go to this place every summer. They have this wonderful restaurant called Miller's.

9 The Woodlands

Taxes to high, too much traffic, crime bleeding in from Houston, Spring

Too many racist rednecks with money. It's like a combination of an old run-down Ku Klux Klan town and some rich enclave in Beverly Hills. Let's not forget about the white suburban kids who fail to get arrested for drugs but the police will still, at random, stop a black guy in suspicion of possessing drugs. That's good old Texas Justice for ya.

On another note, how many megachurches do you need?

10 Tyler

It's growing so fast, but still has that hometown feel!

The Contenders

11 Waco

Waco has a lot of history

12 Amarillo
13 Conroe

Conroe is in Montgomery County, a county that voted for segregationist George Wallace in 1968, even if Texas didn't at that time. That tells you something, and if you're Black or Asian, don't bother stopping in Montgomery County, Texas, and if you happen to pass by it, drive at speed limit. You don't want to deal with the police, or it's strongly racist denizens.

14 Arlington
15 Grapevine

Awesome little town, lots of trees, next to a scenic lake... Still close enough to Dallas to work

Lake is badass, live parties when I was in high school there

Three Words: Great Wolf Lodge - O0812528

There is more to do in the Grapevine City limits than most of America's cities over 300,000 people...

16 Mineral Wells
17 Del Rio

Very peaceful self serving community lacking big city problems. Friendly bi-cultural people in an environment ripe with day trips for the weekend.

18 Lewisville
19 Beaumont
20 Brownsville
21 Irving
22 Laredo

The city with the most douchebags.

23 Blossom
24 Lubbock

I live here, and even though it's not that safe here I still love it. Where Texas Tech is.

25 Midland

This is where USA gets a lot of there oil from.

26 Vidor
27 San Marcos
28 Wichita Falls

This may be a 'small city' to most but, it has plenty to offer and there's al ot within a few hours travel to Dallas/Fort worth, Abilene, OKC, Lawton, Anadarko,, etc. You will enjoy the amenities and living expenses compared to most Texas cities. This will depend on if you are a North Texas soul, Central, South, East West, etc. The other area I would recommend is the Great San Antonio Area [San Marcos, Round rock, San Marcos, Gonzalez, Marion, McQueeny, Schertz, Cibolo, Selma, Universal City, Poteet, pretty much anything on loop 1604 including Castroville.)

29 Abilene
30 Richardson

This is the city I am from.

31 Plano

Plano was ranked the number 1 safest city not only in Texas, but in the whole United States 4 years ago! - Fuziion

Safest city of all of North Texas.

32 Leander

I live in this city. Surprised an underrated city with a Wikipedia page short like your typical "random page" is here. - TeamRocket747

33 Grand Prairie
34 Praha
35 Coppell
36 Kirby
37 Victoria

Nestled 2 hours from everywhere. A solid city in south Texas that is often over looked

38 San Angelo

Amazing place... Not racist.

39 Copperas Cove

Nice little town, full of people who are related to the military, very low crime, and lots of recreation.

Apparently the worst city in Texas

40 Aledo
41 Eastland
42 Killeen
43 McAllen
