Houston, TX. Home of the first domed stadium (Astrodome), the Texas Medical Center, NASA (actually in Clear Lake), ENRON, and a football team that's never been to a Super Bowl.

Surprise is too new to be known for anything but I'm originally from Phoenix. The famous people that came out of Phoenix are:

Barry Morris Goldwater (1909 - 1998) Was a five-term United States Senator from Arizona (1953-1965, 1969-1987) and the Republican Party's nominee for President in the 1964 election. He was also a Major General in the U.S. Air Force Reserve. He was known as "Mr. Conservative". Born in Phoenix, AZ

Dierks Bentley (1975 - ) Is an American country music artist who has been signed to Capitol Records Nashville since 2003. That year, he released his self-titled debut album. Both it and its follow-up, 2005's Modern Day Drifter, are certified platinum in the United States. A third album, 2006's Long Trip Alone, is certified gold. It was followed in mid 2008 by a greatest hits package. His fourth album, Feel That Fire was released in February 2009. Born in Phoenix, AZ

Lynda Carter (1951 - ) Is an American actress and singer. Born in Phoenix, AZ

Joan Ganz Cooney (1929 - ) Producer of Sesame Street. Born in Phoenix, AZ

Matthew Joseph Dallas (1982 - ) Is an American actor, best known for his titular character on the ABC Family series, Kyle XY. Born in Phoenix, AZ

Frank Luke (1897 - 1918) Nickname "Arizona Balloon Buster" Was an American fighter ace, ranking second among U.S. Army Air Service pilots to Captain Eddie Rickenbacker in number of aerial victories during World War I (Rickenbacker was credited with 26 aerial victories, while Luke's official score was 18). Frank Luke was the first airman to receive the Medal of Honor. Born in Phoenix, AZ

Stephanie Lynn "Stevie" Nicks (1948 - ) Is an American singer-songwriter, best known for her work with Fleetwood Mac and an extensive solo career, which collectively have produced over forty Top 50 hits and sold nearly 120 million albums. She has been noted for her ethereal visual style and symbolic lyrics. Born in Phoenix, AZ
