Dallas

Dallas is one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States. From 2010 to 2016, Dallas recorded the highest net domestic migration in the country, in excess of 300,000. Overall, the Dallas–Fort Worth metro area had the second largest population increase among metro areas in the U.S., which recorded a population of 7,233,323 as of July 1, 2016, an increase of 807,000 people since the 2010 census.[12] Located in North Texas, Dallas is the main core of the largest metropolitan area in the South and the largest inland metropolitan area in the United States that lacks any navigable link to the sea.[13]

Dallas, a modern metropolis, is the commercial and cultural hub of the region. Downtown’s Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza commemorates the site of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963. In the Arts District, the Dallas Museum of Art and the Crow Collection of Asian Art cover thousands of years of art. The sleek Nasher Sculpture Center showcases contemporary sculpture. The George W. Bush Presidential Library is located on the SMU campus near downtown Dallas.

Dallas is supported by two airports, DFW International and Love Field, making it very accessible from anywhere in the US and internationally. The economy of Dallas is considered diverse, with dominant sectors including defense, financial services, information technology, telecommunications, and transportation. Dallas serves as the headquarters for 9 Fortune 500 companies within the city limits. The Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex hosts additional Fortune 500 companies including ExxonMobil (Irving), J.C. Penney (Plano), and American Airlines (Fort Worth). All these factors continue to make the Dallas housing market one of the strongest in the country. Couple this with good public schools, a strong job market, affordable housing and it is no surprise as to why so many companies chose to relocate to the Dallas area.
