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.

"Michelle began working with us while we were still in RI, 12 months before we arrived in TX. Once we were here, she presented a raft of good properties we toured and researched, including a home in Georgetown we ended up buying. Michelle was unfailingly responsive, thorough, and helpful. She was even better during the p&s and closing phases, with wise counsel, grasp of subtleties that would have escaped us, and a strong protectiveness of our interests. She's a superb realtor, more a friend by the end, and we would recommend her highly to anyone searching for a home in central TX."
