Texas is the second largest American state. It's huge. The great thing about that is it's big enough to find a place that fits your sensibility.
Austin is our capitol, meant for techies, political hopefuls, SXSW hipsters, bands, academics...wait, Austin is pretty much for everyone. Dallas is for the young folks, the $30,000 millionaires and Rick Ross.
San Antonio and El Paso are Mexico Lite. Houston is your oil town and home of the DIY rap tradition.
Denton is almost like a quaint little Austin, though don't tell a Dentonite that because they will yell in your face.
Ft. Worth is where cowboys are still authentic and cool, and where people really like art. College Station is your tried and true hick town.
There's a city for everyone in Texas.
