So How Big Is Texas Really?

Texas is the largest state in the continental United States. (Of course Texans will also say that Texas is bigger than Alaska if you melted all their snow!welcometotexas250)

Texas covers 268,000 square miles which is 7.4% of the nation! If you added up New England, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio AND Illinois… Texas is still Bigger!  The airport at Dallas (DFW airport) is bigger than Manhattan!

Of the top 10 most populated cities, Texas has 3!  Houston, Dallas and San Antonio.

Wonder which state has the largest population growth rate of any state in the US?  TEXAS of course!  Texas is growing by over 1,000 people a day.

Wonder which state has the #1 fastest growing metro area in the nation? TEXAS of course!  The Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex wins.

In the Texaplex (triangle connecting Houston, Dallas and San Antonio) we have the majority of the population. In fact over 70% of the state’s population lives within 200 miles of Austin (the capital of Texas). That means that 4 out of 5 of the 24 million Texas live in the Texaplex!

And, Texas is growing very fast.  Forecasts tell us that the Texaplex will add another 12 million people by 2030. That is like taking the current Texas population and adding another Houston metropolitan area, Austin metropolitan area and Dallas/Fort Worth metropolitan area and San Antonio metropolitan area all inside the Texaplex.

So if you could live anywhere in the United Stated (and you CAN!), where would be the BEST place to live?  College Station, TEXAS of course! College Station is in the middle of ALL THIS GROWTH!
