Texas: The Land of Opportunity

The Lone Star State racked up some love from the Daily Beast in a survey of so-called "aspirational cities" — urban hubs the website defines as "magnets" of economic and cultural opportunities that lure new, ambitious citizens.

The 21st-century aspirational city, the report explains, tends to draw people from the nation's longstanding hives of activity in California and the Northeast. The South and the lower Midwest appear to have the strongest pull, as workers leave more expensive regions for greener pastures where they can build a career, buy a home and live in relative comfort.
