The city of Tyler was named one of "The Most Exciting Places in Texas" by Movoto, a real estate research site. The East Texas oasis checked in at number eight.

The article based their findings on several key factors:

  • Nightlife per capita (bars, clubs, comedy, etc.)
  • Live music venues per capita 
  • Active life options per capita (parks, etc.)
  • Fast Food restaurants per capita (the fewer the better)
  • Percentage of restaurants that are not fast food (the higher the better)
  • Percentage of young residents ages 18 to 34 (the higher the better) 

Data was collected from the 100 most populated places in Texas via several resources: Areavibes, the 2010 US Census and Yelp. The information was then ranked in different categories from 1 to 100 and then averaged out to one score-- the lower the better.

Below are the final top 10 rankings:

  1. Galveston
  2. Austin
  3. Houston
  4. Conroe
  5. Dallas
  6. San Marcos
  7. McAllen
  8. Tyler
  9. New Braunfels
  10. Bryan
