Considering how much area Houston is spread over, it's not congested at all compared to other cities....

Haha I exaggerated, but still those freeways are packed.

On a side note, interesting fact: Houston is the only place in the country where service road/frontage roads are called "feeders"

It's The Highline. An old elevated Freight Car line that was turned into a park recently. And that's not even a particularly interesting photo of it.

There is a murder every god damn day, but the city is cool because there are great restaurants and attractions.

But that's what makes it fun. Knowing at any moment you could walk around the wrong corner and have yourself a situation. Nothing like gettinh shot at to get some adrenaline pumping. Plus, if you're squeezin yourself, you could have an old fashioned western shootout. Yolo

Damn Texas owns that list...

that being said, it isn't the greatest list ever...Fort Worth made the list and that place isn't really "cool" at all

Dallas IS very cool though...

Um, why are you listening to Forbes magazine to find out what is cool?

Also this list has Forth Worth, TX above Austin, TX? How many people do you know who would prefer Forth Worth to Austin? How many of them do you think are cool?

DC is awesome. My friends moved close to the zoo / park. That area is all very chill. Actually reminds me a lot of Park Slope but more rural (which is a nice thing).

Yeah west red-line is super white/gay. More fun on Midtown green-line, but also more dangerous.

5. Galveston


and honestly, I'd rather be in places like San Marcos, Corpus Christi, Denton, and even Arlington before I would go to Mosquitoville.
