It's huge. It's the Big D, home of cowboys, entrepreneurs, and superlatives. The place with the biggest, the boldest, and just plain more of everything - from nightlife and culture to shopping and family fun - needs 2 whole cities to hold it all. Dallas and Fort Worth are now a growing metroplex known as one of the 10 largest metropolitan areas in the nation but one of the least densely populated big cities on Earth.
In addition to petroleum, technology, banking, and transportation are the biggest local industries. Dallas/Fort Worth also has more hotels than New York City, and, as the No. 1 visitor destination in the state, residents know how to treat a guest.
Whether you're visiting for shopping, dining, sports and theatre, Dallas and Fort Worth have much to offer. Four major teams - the Mavericks, the Stars, the Rangers and the Cowboys - call the area home, and opportunities for great golf abound. North Fort Worth's Texas Motor Speedway is not only one of the most modern NASCAR tracks, but also one of the largest sports facilities in the United States.
Take in the Texas nightlife with a show at House of Blues Dallas or the historic Majestic Theatre, then spend the day shopping at Galleria Dallas or with a visit to the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza or Fair Park - whatever your reason for visiting Dallas/Fort Worth, you're sure to be entertained and fully engaged.
