What are the best small Texas towns?

I currently live in Austin and work for a state agency. I'd like to move quickly up the ladder and the best way to do that is to be willing to take a position in the agency in a smaller town. What towns are most livable and why?
I'm only looking to keep this position for 3-5 years, so rental prices are important, sale prices aren't. I have a dog, so some semblance of hiking activity would be awesome. I was thinking west Texas would be good for this, but other than Marfa are there any good towns? Places with cool landmarks / sunsets / etc would be great.
Politically, I'm pretty liberal but I don't really care about living in a sea of red. I'd prefer DIY-libertarian spirit to suburb-Baptist conservatism, though.
