Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Texas

The 1960s was a time of turmoil in many U.S. cities, and Dallas had its share. The lowest point in Dallas history came on Nov. 22, 1963, when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on a downtown street. The event cast the city in an awful light, as people throughout the world asked, "What kind of place is Dallas?"

Dallas is the ninth largest city in the US, with over 1.2 million people in the city. It is new city yet with its share of history. The city of Dallas encompasses 384 square miles of rolling prairie, with native pecan, cottonwood and oak trees located along the Trinity River and the numerous creeks that feed it. It boasts the largest of wholesale market in the world, and ofcourse there are the Dallas cowboys and their cheerleaders. Dallas claims to be the No. 1 visitor destination in Texas.

In 1961, the original Six Flags Over Texas was opened to the public in Arlington, and now draws over three million visitors a year and remains the biggest family theme park in the central states and the southwest. In 1895, Arlington College was established, eventually becoming a military academy and ultimately part of the University of Texas system, now the University of Texas at Arlington.

Fort Worth is filled with a unique mix of attractions for visitors — from cowboys to culture, from sports to shopping. Together with Dallas, the Dallas-Fort Worth area has more than 5 million people. More than 150 years of history have shaped Cowtown and by itself it is now the 18th largest city.
