Nah, I’m right on this one. I lived in San Antonio for 15+ years and have been to Houston countless times. I’m not some Masshole commenting on Houston after going to a SB once, like you probably were assuming. It’s a blah city with zero real intrigue....so you didn't get off the highway, then?
Houston is capital U U-G-L-Y. There's no doubt about it. The total lack of zoning laws - which will also lead to the city's complete destruction by climate change - are to blame.
But yeah - you're flat-out incorrect on this one. The city is incredibly diverse and overflowing with culture. I live in Austin. Here in 2022, Houston is a FAR more interesting place than the state's capital. It's not the 1970s anymore.
As far as its conservatism goes, yeah - it's TEXAS. That said, the city itself is deep blue.
Also, unless you live in New Orleans, Los Angeles or New York, the food is better down here than where you are.
As far as the answer to the poll? It's the Texans, 100%.
EDIT: LOL at "traffic" being a complaint. 'cause that's only an issue in Houston and not in every other major city in the U.S. Clearly.
