In every state, there are both good and bad places to live, and that certainly applies to the State of Texas. The factors that determine whether an area is considered desirable or undesirable include crime rates, education, economic issues, and a lack of things for people to do in their area. Or, you could be judging the city by how pretty or ugly it is, I GUESS...

Not all cities in the world are created equal in terms of visual appeal. While there are many beautiful places to explore, there are also many cities that are so horrible they will leave a hole in your heart that will never fully heal. A report has named a Texas city one of the ugliest in America...


In a report from, they take a look at cities that are more than just eyesores. They could be the result of poor design decisions or a lack of upkeep.

From the story from, this has to be one of the funniest lines...

If you live in one of these places, sorry to break the bad news... But if you don't, keep them in mind the next time you're planning a cross-country road trip or accepting out-of-town job opportunities; you don't want to be stuck anywhere near these spots!

So what is the UGLIEST CITY in Texas? According to the report from, El Paso, Texas is the ugliest city in Texas. Here's what they had to say about the city...

Sometimes you don't have words for just how ugly a place is, which was the issue this Reddit user ran into when they tried to describe the looks of El Paso, Texas--"El Paso, Texas, depresses the hell out of me." It may sound like a vague accusation, but anyone who's been there knows what they're talking about.


The city is definitely not the most beautiful place we've ever seen, with its main problem being way too many browns and other neutral earth tones. You're already building a city in Texas--it's already earthy enough without throwing in a ton of brown brick buildings into the mix
