Welcome to Dallas and Fort Worth
Although Dallas and Fort Worth are together known as the metroplex, they’re kind of like peas and carrots. They go together beautifully, but they have two very separate, special and distinct identities – and that’s what makes thousands of relocating families and individuals move here every year.
Consider that from July 2008 to July 2009, nearly 150,000 new residents chose to move to the area – and for good reason. Both Dallas and Fort Worth offer plenty of recreational opportunities that speak to the area’s overall quality of life, including more than 200 golf courses, hundreds of area parks, fun entertainment venues like the Fort Worth Stockyards and Six Flags, and renowned cultural amenities like the Morton Meyerson Symphony Center, the Kimbell Art Museum, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, and much more.
Exploring a new city and finding a place to live is one of the most exciting experiences of anyone who’s relocating to another area of the country. And if that area is the DFW metroplex, you can be sure you’ll find lots of affordable housing options in neighborhoods of all kinds.
With 12 counties, more than 200 cities and a population of more than 6 million, there’s no doubt that’s a lot of area to cover. Each county and city has its own unique lifestyle, identity and culture, and that can be a dizzying prospect for those new to town.
No matter where you're moving-or whether or not you have children-education is an important aspect for anyone considering relocation. Studies have shown that multiple educational options and quality school districts rank among the most important factors for relocating individuals and families.
A state-of-the-art ballpark in Arlington, multiple museums in walking distance of downtown and performing arts venues for all art lovers are just a few reasons why leisurely visiting Dallas/Fort Worth may not be possible for the serious fun seekers. If you’re going to experience all that Dallas has to offer, it’s best not to do it in leisure-mode. Rather, get on your walking shoes and get busy! Dallas has more than 115 public art works and has the largest urban arts district in America. With nine museums, Dallas offers vast opportunities to soak in artifacts from all over the world.
