Experience Dallas, TX

City of Big Appetites

When you live in Dallas it doesn’t take long to realize that it lives up to its motto, "Live Large, Think Big." Dallas is one of the country’s largest metropolitan areas(1), the cultural center of the Southwest, the No. 1 visitor and leisure destination in Texas(2) and a leading business destination. It has teams from all seven professional sports leagues, the largest urban arts district in the nation, endless shopping options, and more restaurants per capita than any other U.S. city(3) – including several nationally-ranked restaurants and hotels and the largest working Farmer’s Market in the country.(4) It’s no wonder that Dallas was ranked one of the best cities for foodies by Travel and Leisure magazine(5). It’s a true culinary melting pot with American, Indian, Italian, and Middle Eastern influences. Weather is another big reason why residents love living here – the moderate climate is ideal for enjoying the area’s numerous parks, lakes, golf courses and other outdoor recreational activities.
