Saturday afternoon drive around downtown Dallas with some great views of the city skyline. Enjoy!
Dallas is a city in the U.S. state of Texas and is largest inland metropolitan area in the U.S. that lacks any navigable link to the sea. With a population of 1.3 million people, the city of Dallas is the main core of the largest metropolitan area in the Southern United States. It is the most populous city in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex, the fourth-largest metropolitan area in the country at 7.5 million people. 

Dallas and nearby Fort Worth were initially developed due to the construction of major railroad lines through the area allowing access to cotton, cattle and later oil in North and East Texas. The construction of the Interstate Highway System reinforced Dallas’s prominence as a transportation hub, with four major interstate highways converging in the city and a fifth interstate loop around it. Dallas then developed as a strong industrial and financial center and a major inland port, due to the convergence of major railroad lines, interstate highways and the construction of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, one of the largest and busiest airports in the world.

A “beta(+)” global city, the economy of Dallas has been considered diverse with dominant sectors including defense, financial services, information technology, telecommunications, and transportation. Dallas is home to 9 Fortune 500 companies within the city limits. The Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex hosts additional Fortune 500 companies, including American Airlines (Fort Worth), ExxonMobil (Irving), and J. C. Penney (Plano). Over 41 colleges and universities are in its metropolitan area which is the most of any metropolitan area in Texas. WalletHub named Dallas the fifth most-diverse city in the U.S. in 2018.
