DALLAS / FORT WORTH
WE LOVE DFW
The third largest city in Texas, Dallas, has a population of 1.3 million. The city’s well-known football team, the Cowboys, are joined by 2011 NBA champion Mavericks and National Hockey League Stars. Music also plays a big part in the city, from country at Gilley’s to the blues in the Deep Ellum neighborhood. Known for world-class shopping and big hair, Dallas is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
Dallas’s skyline has nineteen buildings classified as skyscrapers, over 150 meters in height. Despite not having a tallest building that reaches 300 meters, Dallas does have a signature building in Bank of America Plaza which is lit up in neon but falls outside the top two hundred tallest buildings in the world.
Fort Worth is the fifth largest city in Texas with a population of 854,000. This Tarrant County city comprises three districts: cultural, stockyard and Sundance square. Cultural district highlights include the Modern Art Museum, Museum of Science and History, and Bass Performance Hall. You will find Billy Bob’s Texas, the world’s largest honkey tonk, and a cattle drive down Exchange Street in the Stockyard district. Sundance Square offers upscale dining, eclectic shops and performance art.
