Just like every state in the USA, there’s good and a lotta bad. The goal today is to talk about the worst places you could live in Texas. These are the places that just about everyone here would agree are pretty crummy.

In order to determine which are the worst places in Texas, we just had to look at ‘worst’ things. That means statistics like crime, poverty and bad schools. The type of stuff most Texans tend to avoid.

So, grab some BBQ and throw on your boots as we mosey on through the worst places you can live in the state of Texas.

Killeen We begin our journey along the worst places you can live in Texas in the small city of Killeen, just off of I-35 west of Temple.

Our next stop along our worst Texas tour brings us to Cleveland Texas. This is a much smaller place – the population is only around 7,000 people. Cleveland is along I-69 northeast of Houston.

Okay, so we’re going to take a quick stop in our 8th worst place you can live in Texas, Hutchins. Here in Hutchins, things aren’t very good. This teeny little city of 5,200 people is just outside the Dallas belt line.

But for now, it’s time to move on to our 7th worst place to live in Texas, El Paso. For things to do, there is more than in the other cities we’ve mentioned so far. Of course, there’s a university here, and some mountains to hike in. And you can go to Juarez for a thrill. Does having more 99 cent stores than anywhere else on earth count for something?

Our next stop along our worst place to live in Texas tour stops in Donna. This little city of 15,000 is located Donna, located at the far southeastern tip of the state, between McAllen and Brownsville.

We’re halfway through our tour of the most worstest cities to live in the entire state of Texas and we’re going to stop in number 5, Humble. Like Houston, Humble is a case of the haves and have nots. It has a low economic outlook and significantly high number of convenience and discount stores.

Our fourth worst place to live in the state of Texas is none other than Port Arthur. Here, home prices are the 16th lowest in Texas, and the unemployment rate is in the top 10%.

Hey now. We’re in the top three worst places you can live in Texas, as we come to Robstown. A ton of people are out of work here – more than 8%. Average home price in Texas is $151k. Robstown’s is $50k.

Who’s our runner up as the worst place in Texas? Bellmead is. Do they even have a Whataburger here?

The worst place to live in Texas is Southeast Houston after dark.

    Texas is my second home state! My second daughter is born texan. Getting ready to move back to Midland, TX

  4. Les hale on May 10, 2022 at 1:22 am

    You have humble in South Texas whenever it is in Southeast Texas just north of Houston. And you have El Paso in Northeast Texas whenever it is in far West Texas.

  5. Supernova on May 10, 2022 at 1:23 am

    I lived in Texas most of my life, spent time in most of these cities and I have no arguments here. Killeen is a real dump for sure. Post pandemic, Houston has gotten much worse in my opinion. Texas is a great state but I would recommend living in either Dallas, Austin or San Antonio as a distant third. Any other places in Texas are forgettable.

  6. Zeekiel on May 10, 2022 at 1:26 am

    Don’t listen to him. Do your own research and find out for yourself. Especially El Paso…

  7. groseron on May 10, 2022 at 1:27 am

    I live in Houston but I pretty much agree with the list. Personally, from a more superficial pov, I find Austin and the surrounding areas to be my favorite part of Texas, it’s just too small / not urban enough for my taste to actually live there. If you wanna head out to the country, the Hill Country is just beautiful, I absolutely love going out there whenever I wanna take a break from the city. If we’re talking about deeper issues like culture, society, politics, economy, etc., I’m really not sure where in Texas is better for that tbh. I will say, though, for a NON-Mexican Latino (such as myself), you’d probably like Houston the best (and it also has one of the best local live latin music scenes in the U.S. imho, which is very important to me as a musician). Based both on statistics and personal experience, Houston also tops the list for most diverse city in Texas (and even the U.S.)

    This is very sad as Texans are the most honest and down to earth people. They deserve so much better. It’s a very wealthy State.

  18. Scott Edwards on May 10, 2022 at 1:44 am

    I’m pretty certain El Paso is not in North Texas.

  19. first shadow k on May 10, 2022 at 1:48 am

  31. KingErvin on May 10, 2022 at 1:59 am


  32. daniel nunez on May 10, 2022 at 2:00 am

    basically your saying that the reason that it is bad is because of the illegal and legal immigrants…

  33. Yolo.vr1 on May 10, 2022 at 2:00 am

  34. RMS Titanic on May 10, 2022 at 2:00 am

    If you live here, how many questions are on the STAAR tests?

    hint: it’s 26

  35. Ailyn Albor on May 10, 2022 at 2:02 am

    I live in Port Arthur, but unemployment is only low because people want to be unemployed, there are tons of jobs especially in the refineries which pay very well, many unions to for great benefits and always keep you working. It’s quite diverse, Black, Hispanic and Vietnamese communities for the most part. It is also where quite a bit of famous people came from, like Janice Joplin for example. Personally I’d rather live somewhere nicer but it’s also not awful to live here.

  36. Danny Franco Jr on May 10, 2022 at 2:02 am

    My name is Daniel Franco Jr and I am s good Peace Maker

  37. Lord Firestaff on May 10, 2022 at 2:04 am

    You may need a lesson in geography. You are right about Port Arthur and Houston though.

  38. Edgar Percy on May 10, 2022 at 2:04 am

    El Paso is not in Dallas 😂

  39. Gypsy Fox on May 10, 2022 at 2:06 am

  40. JCruz Flores on May 10, 2022 at 2:07 am


  41. MakesSense ToKickUrHead Jr on May 10, 2022 at 2:08 am

  42. Jaydo on May 10, 2022 at 2:08 am

  43. German Cuevas on May 10, 2022 at 2:08 am

    Was your boyfriend from El Paso?

  44. Reagh Network on May 10, 2022 at 2:09 am

    Love and understanding is the only path forward to happiness

  45. Chris Alexander on May 10, 2022 at 2:10 am

    Dude get a clue this site is full of fake information ‼️‼️ Do your home work next time. .. LoL 😂🤣

  46. Josh Caelum on May 10, 2022 at 2:10 am

    What is this dude even talking about, El Paso is one of the safest cities with the lowest crime rate.

  47. Les hale on May 10, 2022 at 2:10 am

    Okay man I got to say that you have the star locations in the wrong places of the cities in Texas.

  48. Amy Schmidt on May 10, 2022 at 2:13 am

    Been to most of these supposedly bad places. Currently living in El Paso for past 3 years. El Pasoans THINK they are being friendly, but actually they really are quite cold. It’s because there are very many large Hispanic families here, they all know each other, help each other out and basically ignore anyone they don’t know. As far as the ugliness down by Pasadena, Galena Park, whatever, it’s ugly because of what the chemical and petroleum and energy companies did. These large corporations just stripped what they want and leave trash and rot behind. No planning or care goes into building communities or neighborhoods. The corporations make it ugly. Large, self-centered families and religions make these areas cold and unfriendly. If you look around there is still lots to love about Texas, and I’m not about to give up. You just gotta be honest and realistic when you are here!
