A small city located roughly halfway between Dallas and Austin on I-35 in the middle of the "Texas Triangle" between [[UsefulNotes/DFWMetroplex Dallas]], UsefulNotes/{{Houston}}, and Austin/San Antonio, this town has had...a rough history, to say the least. In 1916, a black man named Jesse Washington was accused of raping and murdering a white woman, tried and convicted in a [[KangarooCourt trial that lasted all of one hour]], and was subsequently ''hung, castrated, and burned alive for two hours'' in front of the Town Hall. People took pictures and sold pieces of his charred corpse as souvenirs during and immediately after his death; the public images outraged most of the United States. In 1953, Waco was destroyed by the eleventh-deadliest tornado in US history (with a death toll of 114[[note]]tied with the tornado that hit another Texas town, Goliad, in 1902[[/note]]), which stalled its economic growth while cities of similar size like Austin boomed. Forty years later, it was doomed to have its name forever associated with the name of David Koresh and the Branch Davidians, a group of disfellowshipped members of disfellowshipped members of the Seventh-Day Adventists (long story) who got into an armed standoff with the ATF and FBI at their compound right outside the city at Mount Carmel[[note]]The compound and the Branch Davidians still exist to this day, however finding it is rather hard, as there aren't clear markings/signs around the city to locate it, it's difficult to identify thanks to a series of fires destroying some of the remaining compound buildings in the late 90's, and for obvious reasons, the surviving Davidians aren't fond of outsiders poking around the area.[[/note]], making the word "Waco" a rallying cry for {{Right Wing Militia Fanatic}}s for years; the raid was actually noted as being the reason why Oklahoma City bomber Timothy [=McVeigh=] would plot his attack (which was not coincidentally, carried out on the second anniversary of the siege) on the Murrah Building. [[TheWoobie Poor town.]] Also, regardless of one's views on the man, UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush's "ranch", the "Western White House", is located a couple dozen miles outside the city. On the positive side, Creator/SteveMartin's from here, and Baylor University has claimed the title of being the oldest continuously operating university in the state of Texas (established in 1845). The HGTV series ''Series/FixerUpper'' is based here as well.

There are a number of festivals and events for just about anything in Austin year-round. Kite Festival? Check. Hot Sauce Festival? Yep. Bat Fest? Oh yeah. You name it, and Austin is very likely to celebrate it.

Austin is also notable for it's rapid growth. Since 1940, it's population has been increasing by roughly 40% every decade, and it has grown from a fairly modest government/college town to one of the largest Cities in the United States; the 11th largest as of 2013.

Also the home of Schlitterbahn, a world-famous water park that consistently gets rated as the Number One water park in the world, alongside its sister park Schlitterbahn Beach in South Padre Island.



Another small city, located almost a hundred miles north-west of the DFWMetroplex. Home to "The World's Smallest Skyscraper," (the result of a technicality/loophole on the blueprints for the building) and the Hotter'N Hell Hundred, a world-famous 100-mile bicycling race taking place in the middle of the summer, when temperatures sit at above 100 degrees fahrenheit ''daily''. Wichita Falls is also the childhood home of Mia Hamm, arguably the greatest woman to ever play the sport of soccer, and definitely the greatest to play for the United States women, the music band BowlingForSoup, and Phil [=McGraw=] (aka DoctorPhil). Wichita Falls is home to Midwestern State University (UT's liberal arts branch), an extension of a college from a neighboring city (Vernon College), and one of three air force bases that all aspiring pilots are required to attend. Sometimes included with the Metroplex, despite not technically being included according to the feds and being so far away.

Wichita Falls is home to Midwestern State University (UT's ("Texas' liberal arts branch), university"), an extension of a college from a neighboring city (Vernon College), and one of three air force bases in Texas (this being Sheppard, the others being Lackland in San Antonio, and Dyess in Abilene) that all aspiring pilots are required to attend.

Known as the Oasis of West Texas (it has three rivers and three lakes), and once known as the Mohair Capitol of the World, San Angelo is a mid-sized city in the west-central portion of the state, and lies almost exactly halfway between Interstates 20 and 10.[[note]]San Angeloans frequently claim that they are the largest city in Texas not on the Interstate Highway System, although Brownsville may actually hold the title.[[/note]] San Angelo came into national promenence a few years ago during the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YFZ_Ranch#April_2008_raid 2008 YFZ Ranch raid]], as many of the associated criminal trials took place in San Angelo. Currently undergoing a smaller oil boom than the one in Odessa-Midland. San Angelo has a university and an Air Force base, a burgeoning art and live music scene (Los Lonely Boys are from San Angelo), and is somewhat cynically known by locals as a town of bad driving and meth labs.

The capital of Texas. Home of the University of Texas (or texas university to the Aggies[[note]]who refuse to even capitalize it[[/note]]), which is the state's largest in terms of enrollment, as well as a traditional powerhouse in all of the Big Three sports (American football, basketball, baseball). Austin is famous for being a notorious pocket of liberalism and counterculture in what is otherwise one of the most conservative states in the country; Creator/PattonOswalt referred to it as "a bubble of sanity", while the rest of the state (including Austin itself) calls it the People's Republic of Austin with either derision or SelfDeprecation. It's well known for all kinds of colorful characters, some of whom will run for mayor (look up the name Leslie Cochran if you're feeling brave). Oh, and traffic. In terms of "most-congested traffic", Austin ranks [[http://www.bizjournals.com/austin/blog/morning_call/2014/06/austin-traffic-ranks-among-worst-in-america-report.html 16th in the United States, and 25th in the Western Hemisphere]]. If there's such a thing as a city-wide BerserkButton, traffic can definitely be considered one for Austin.

Organic supermarket chain Whole Foods Market is based here, as are a host of high-tech companies such as Dell, making it something of Texas's Silicon Valley -- Austin and the surrounding area are sometimes referred to as "Silicon Hills". Heck ''Creator/RetroStudios'' (known for the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' and ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns'' series) is based in this city. A related claim to fame is Austin's ''massive'' live music scene and multiple music festivals, including but not limited to Austin City Limits, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Chaos in Tejas, and most importantly, South By Southwest (or more simply, SXSW; locals typically refer to it as "South By"), which can cause several parts of the city to shut down or become next to impossible to navigate for days on end thanks to the pedestrian and auto traffic - it ranks as "most important" due to the amount of money it brings into the city; unless you're attending free shows or hitting up the back of the line hoping to get into shows where people with badges/wristbands have priority, you're going to be shelling out hundreds of dollars for the badge alone - and if you can't find a couch to crash on, good luck - almost all area hotels sell out ''months'' in advance, and places just outside of city limits jack up the prices...a lot. All of these factors come together to make the city known as the "Live Music Capital of the World", however some more cynical/longtime residents would disagree with this, blaming several venue shutdowns - and other issues with the city, really - on [[{{Hipster}} "California transplants"]]; this despite the fact that it's still definitely possible to walk around several blocks downtown and find at least four bands/artists of four different genres playing in four different clubs at the same time.

It's SelfDeprecation.

This actually sums up Austin quite well; it's a city of contradictions and quirks. A progressive city with conservative roots, a hub for cutting edge research with a thriving art and culture scene, a thriving local economy operating side by side with international coorperations.

For starters, it's
well known for [[CityOfWeirdos all kinds of colorful characters, some characters]]. For instance, the late Leslie Cochran, who had become something of whom will a beloved city mascot toward the end of his life.

A related claim to fame is Austin's ''massive'' live music scene and multiple music festivals, including but not limited to Austin City Limits, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Chaos in Tejas, and most importantly, South By Southwest (or more simply, SXSW; locals typically refer to it as "South By"), which can cause each of several parts of the city to shut down or become next to impossible to navigate for days on end thanks to the pedestrian and auto traffic - it ranks as "most important" due to the amount of money it brings into the city; unless you're attending free shows or hitting up the back of the line hoping to get into shows where people with badges/wristbands have priority, you're going to be shelling out hundreds of dollars for the badge alone - and if you can't find a couch to crash on, good luck - almost all area hotels sell out ''months'' in advance, and places just outside of city limits jack up the prices...a lot.

mayoral campaigns.



Added DiffLines:

This leads to another notable part of the city: traffic. In terms of "most-congested traffic", Austin ranks [[http://www.bizjournals.com/austin/blog/morning_call/2014/06/austin-traffic-ranks-among-worst-in-america-report.html 16th in the United States, and 25th in the Western Hemisphere]]. If there's such a thing as a city-wide BerserkButton, traffic can definitely be considered one for Austin. Biking has become popular not merely for health reasons, but because it is sometimes faster to bike somewhere than to ''drive'' there.

There are a number of festivals and events for just about anything in Austin year-round. Kite Festival? Check. Hot Sauce Festival? Yep. Bat Fest? Oh yeah. You name it, and Austin is very likely to celebrate it.

The city is also home to many musicians, actors/actresses, and political figures, both mainstream and underground, and the two frequently intermingle.

A related claim to fame is that the city is known as the "Live Music Capital of the World". Describing Austin's live music scene as "massive" would be an understatement: it's possible to walk around several blocks downtown on any given night, and find at least four bands/artists of four different genres playing in four different clubs at the same time- on weekend evenings, its hard to find a restraunt, pub, bar, or club that doesn't have some sort of live performance going on. As previously mentioned, Austin is a place where the mainstream and underground mix, and the music scene is no exception. A number of bars have become especially known as places for huge name acts to get back to their roots- it isn't unheard of for groups like {{Music/Coldplay}}, Music/ZZTop, or Music/TheRollingStones to drop into a sixth street bar for a one night performance with little to no fanfare.

This is further augmented by multiple annual music festivals, including but not limited to Austin City Limits, Fun Fun Fun Fest, and Chaos in Tejas. The biggest of all, however, is South By Southwest (or more simply, SXSW; locals typically refer to it as "South By"). This massive annual music festival shuts down several parts of the city for the duration, and parts of the rest become next to impossible to navigate for days on end thanks to the pedestrian and auto traffic. City officials and local businesses are more than happy to put up with this, however, thanks to the amount of money it brings into the city: unless you're attending free shows or hitting up the back of the line hoping to get into shows where people with badges/wristbands have priority, you're going to be shelling out hundreds of dollars for the badge alone. If you can't find a couch to crash on, good luck - almost all area hotels sell out ''months'' in advance, and places just outside of city limits jack up the prices...a lot.

Austin also has a thriving business side. Organic supermarket chain Whole Foods Market may be one of the quintissential emblems of Austin: what started here as that grocery store where you could get the "hippy" vegetables like kale has become an international cooperation without quite ever changing its basic premise. A host of high-tech companies such as Dell, 3M, and Google have sites in Austin, making it something of Texas's Silicon Valley -- Austin and the surrounding area are sometimes referred to as "Silicon Hills".

Combined with Austin's rich creativity-friendly culture, this has led to it becoming especially known as a hotspot for VideoGame developers: ''Creator/RetroStudios'' (known for the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' and ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns'' series) is based in this city. A number of other AAA game developers have Austin branches, as well, including such names BioWare, ElectronicArts, and BlizzardEntertainment.

In all, Austin has a level of [[WeirdnessMagnet offbeat]] [[QuirkyTown quirkiness]] [[CulturalRebel not commonly associated]] with Texas, and the residents are known to proudly Keep Austin Weird.
