They grow everything bigger in Texas, even the cities.

Three of the nation's five fastest-growing cities -- and seven of the top 15 -- are located in the Lone Star State, new data from the Census Bureau shows. The Texas cities of San Marcos, Frisco and Cedar Park were No. 1, 2 and 4 in percentage population growth between 2012 and 2013, each growing by at least 5 percent in that time span.

Utah had two of the top five: South Jordan, at No. 3, and Lehi, at No. 5.

This is the second year in a row that San Marcos, centrally located between Austin and San Antonio on Interstate 35, has topped the list of fastest-growing cities with a population of more than 50,000. Its population grew by 8 percent between July 2012 and 2013 to 54,076 people.
