Dallas is a cultural crossroads that prides itself upon its cosmopolitan appeal. The city’s slogan, Live Large, Think Big, encompasses a broad world that embraces this larger than life motto. The ninth largest city in the U.S., Dallas is a virtual Mecca for the arts, with a thriving museum scene, diversity of music, regional theatre scene, and a reputation as a top film production center.
Dallas has more restaurants per capita than New York City, and offers a wide variety of cuisine and cooking styles to fit every taste. Dallas is also a shopper’s paradise, with major malls and shopping centers that bring the best of the world’s markets to the metroplex. It’s also a sports fan’s paradise, with the Dallas Stars, Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Cowboys, FC Dallas and Texas Rangers games nearly every night of the week during their respective seasons.
The wide variety of housing and architectural styles also makes Dallas very attractive to newcomers, as well as the DART transit system and the high-rise developments that have emerged near rail stations for convenience. www.dallaschamber.org
