Texas is home to many rivalries but perhaps one of the biggest is Dallas versus Houston. A mere 240 miles separate these cities but their cultural, economic and social differences set Dallas and Houston a million miles apart. There are millions of reasons Dallas is better than Houston, so we have decided to compile a list of the top 15. Be sure to share your opinion with us in the comments below!

1. Sports

Five professional sports teams call Dallas home: The Dallas Cowboys football team; Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League; Dallas Mavericks basketball team; FC Dallas soccer and the Texas Rangers baseball team.

These athletes bring home the biggest prizes too, including Super Bowl, NBA, Stanley Cup and American Baseball League championships. Dallas also has NASCAR and Indy racing and is home to more than 200 golf courses. Houston only has 165 golf courses.
