When you think of the word "exciting," what comes to mind? Eating at a new restaurant? Exploring the outdoors? Catching a live show? College Station?
Yep, you heard us. According to a new list from Gogobot,College Station is the most exciting city in Texas, ranking ahead of Austin — and everywhere else. To determine the rankings, Gogobot used the number of bars, restaurants, hotels, and outdoor spaces per capita to create a composite score for each city.
With a huge student population to satiate, College Station is home to a surprising number of entertainment options per capita. According to Gogobot, College Station "ranked fifth or better in all the categories we surveyed."
Austin, No. 2 on the list, ranked No. 1 for bar and restaurants per capita. "Known for being 'weird,' Austin is also a place to sample dynamite beer and delicious food," says Gogobot. "Sixth Street is truly a sight to behold on a Friday night. South Congress is the cooler hipster 'hood, and the outdoor amazingness at Lake Travis and Barton Springs is hard to top."
Doesn't that sound more exciting to you?
Austin, the only big city to crack the top five, is followed by Waco, No. 3; Amarillo, No. 4; and Abilene, No. 5. The exciting cities list is rounded out with Houston, No. 6; Denton, No. 7; Beaumont, No. 8; Dallas, No. 9; and San Antonio, No. 10.

We just got back from a grueling house-hunting trip to Austin... I am happy to report, thanks to Michelle Burns, Realtor, Best Agents in Texas, that we are now, officially, doing our part to keep Austin weird! The homeowner in Round Rock accepted our offer - and our 4 screwy pets - so it is off to the Capital of TX next week! Now you all have someone to visit when you come through the only city in America where Willie Nelson could conceivably run things one day... Gotta love it!"
