Moving to the Dallas/Fort Worth Area
If you move to Dallas, you will be living in the largest of a collection of cities in North Texas commonly referred to as ‘DFW’ or ‘The Metroplex’. Together with Fort Worth, Arlington and others, the area combines to create the fifth largest metropolitan area in the country with a population of 6.9 million spanning over twelve counties.
Dallas has a humid subtropical climate and usually sees temperatures reaching 110 degrees in the summer making it one of the hottest regions in the United States. The heat has never deterred settlers however. The territory on which Dallas now sits has flown under six flags: Spain, France, Mexico, The Republic of Texas, The Confederate States of America and the United States. It is from this history that the popular theme park, Six Flags (located in nearby Arlington), derived its name. In more recent history, American President John F. Kennedy was assassinated during an official visit to Dallas in 1963. A number of local museums and monuments exist to honor his memory and educate visitors wanting to learn more about the horrible tragedy.
Sports in Dallas
Sports fanatics moving to Dallas will not be disappointed. Dallas is also home to a number of professional sports franchises: Major League Baseball’s Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks of the NBA, Dallas Stars of the NHL, MLS’s FC Dallas and the world’s most valuable sports franchise—the Dallas Cowboys. The economy of Dallas is driven by more than sports however. Dallas is also the center of the region’s powerful oil and natural gas industry.
