List of cities in Texas
Texas is a state located in the Southern United States. There are 962 cities in the sections below. The United States Census Bureau estimates the population of Texas was 28,701,845 on July 1, 2018, a 14.14 percent increase since the 2010 United States Census.
In Texas, cities are either "general law" or "home rule" cities. Cities governed under general law have only specific powers granted by state law. A city with a population exceeding 5,000 may seek home rule status by voter approval (and will maintain said status even if the population later falls below 5,000); said status allows more flexibility in local governance (those cities have powers not otherwise prohibited by the Texas Constitution or state law).
