TX, the home of Texas Tech University, offers many of the advantages of
big-city living without many of the drawbacks. Residents enjoy a
variety of cultural events, sports events, good schools, nightlife options,
and a remarkably low cost of housing compared to such places as Dallas
and Houston. With a population of about 200,000, it is the largest
metropolis in West Texas. More information can be found through the
