Prepare yourselves. This one’s probably harm, guys.
But one Forbes author, that is exploring for a book by residing 30 various U.S. places for 30 days each, is convinced you’re best off in San Antonio. Yes, that San Antonio.
It gets worse. The reasoning behind Scott Beyer’s standing hits Austin in certain painful and sensitive spots. Beyer states that a “good week-end celebration doesn’t equate to clear-headed management on Monday early morning, ” which the city keeps a stubborn “slower-growth mentality” in its political dealings. The Forbes piece also calls Austin “a great monoculture if you’re a white college-educated 20 or 30-something hipster, ” and claims it's “by far the whitest big Tx town.”
And what does Beyer see in San Antonio? Mainly, so it’s well-liked by other Tx metropolitan areas. The article claims the other large cities in the state “flay one another if you are pretentious, vapid, over-consumptive, or some combo for the three, ” but not San Antonio. He also claims San Antonio’s slowly financial development has allowed it to “maintain its old-world allure.”
Although an outsider, we hope Beyer understands that the competitive nature between big Texas towns and cities is likened to a sibling rivalry: there are specific issues can state about Dallas (although “the anti-Austin” is pretty spot-on) that you wouldn’t value some body from Missouri saying about Dallas, since it is, after all, part of Texas. And also at the end of the afternoon, no matter what Texas city you call residence, all of us have to point in the same gorgeous condition whenever finding it on a map.
