“Dallas is America. From the diversity in demographics, culture, food, music, and sports, Dallas is a microcosm of everything that makes this country great. You can live your entire life here and never feel like you missed a thing.”
Dallas is a remarkable city. With over 1.3 million people calling it home, Dallas is one of the 10 biggest cities in the United States. It’s always been an important city, a hub of sorts, since the earliest days. Dallas really stated to come to being because of the railroad boom. Texas is a resource-rich area and Dallas is in a perfect location to facilitate access to those resources. Cotton, cattle, oil, and many other goods were available in Texas and wealthy businessmen wanted to ship them out to other parts of the country at a profit. The railroads provided the means to move the goods and before you know it…Dallas was starting to be more than just a small blip on the map.
One of the great things about this city is the culture. Dallas is considered very diverse, according to the 2017 census the demographic makeup is approximately: 28.8% White, 24.7% Black, and 42.4% Latino. That leads to a way of life in this area that you don’t experience in many other places. The food is a perfect example. Dallas is known for some amazing BBQ, a type of food that would have to be considered American, but it also has some of the best Tex-Mex you’ll ever eat, and world class authentic Mexican food. That’s some diversity for your taste buds! And one other little treat that the world can thank Dallas for that will help you wash down all that awesome food…the frozen margarita.
The weather is always great here, but what you do depends on when you come. Love football? Then you’ll definitely want to come during the season. The Dallas Cowboys have one of the most cutting-edge stadiums you’ve ever seen in your life. Built at a cost of over $1 billion, the Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, has said that the stadium is magnificent. It’s the type of engineering marvel that brings in more than just football. Beyonce has performed there, Manny Pacquiao fought there, there was even an NBA All-Star Game and WrestleMania 32…it was just as Jones envisioned, truly an entertainment mecca.
Dallas has it all; restaurants, sports, culture, history, and fun. However, that’s not what makes a city great, the people do. The people of Dallas are special. They have the ability to be warm and welcoming, but still know how to have a good time. There’s a reason this city became so big, so fast, and it’s because people love being here.
