It doesn’t get any more Texas than Dallas. “The Big D,” as many call it, is a crossroads of Old West history, critical 20th-century events, and an economic hub as it provides the headquarters for many of America’s hugest corporations.
Its many parks, cultural destinations, shopping districts, and art scene make it an attraction for visitors of all stripes.
The third-largest city in the state is also the ninth biggest in the United States. With almost 1.5 million resident within the city limits – and an astounding 7.5 million in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area – the seat of Dallas County is a vibrant and exciting place to be. Among its many open spaces, neighborhoods, and points of interests are the trendy Deep Ellum district, Downtown, the Arts District, Dealey Plaza, Klyde Warren Park, White Rock Lake Park, the Katy Trail, and Richardson (which has its own Chinatown). Nearby communities of note include Plano, Arlington, and Fort Worth.
