The Hello Dallas!
The home of the Dallas Cowboys (Arlington host them), Texas Rangers, (Arlington host them) , Dallas Mavericks, and the Dallas Stars.
This a dangerous topic for me. I could write 2000+ word article on Dallas and post 100s of pics of Dallas. Here are a few Here's a short version about Dallas with a few pictures I've shot of Dallas over the last 4 or 5 years. All the pictures are shared via flickr since they are to large to upload here.
I've lived in the Dallas area for most of my life. Our family moved to California in the 80s and my parents made it only 4 years before they sold their house and moved us back to Dallas.
Dallas is full of history, cultural and full places to visit and things to do. We have our famous skyline and our landmarks that everyone that lived in Dallas for a long has grown to love it. We our famous Red Pegasus that once flew over Dallas for decades that was replaced with newer not so famous Red Pegasus and the original was lost for years and found and refurbished. She now flies again in front of the Omni Hotel in Downtown.
We have museums, the Dallas Symphony, Art Museums, Natural History buildings, several art districts, and of course the State Fair of Texas is hosted here and so is the Cotton Bowl. If you want to see more head over to the Fort Worth Stock Yards.
On the edge of Downtown Dallas is Deep Ellum and is part of the arts district. During the day you can explore the art installations and wall murals, explore the hosted festivals, or visit one brew pubs or take in a concert at one of the local clubs. During the 1920s the area was an African American Community full of Doctors, Lawyers, Teachers, and Businessmen. Over time the area became a run down manufacturing and warehousing district that slowly became a bar scene then to what it is today.
Dallas has it full share of celebrities (good and bad) calling Dallas their home over the years (check out this list of current celebrites - https://www.dmagazine.com/publications/d-magazine/2003/march/the-top-100-dallas-celebrities-ranked/.) Bonnie and Clyde grew up in Dallas. Before Clyde became famous he worked an old warehouse in the West End of Downtown Dallas now referred to the West End Market Place. Sadly that building closed its doors over a decade ago but the owners still maintain the building. Just across the Trinity River off Singleton Blvd sit the family home and service station that Clyde Barker lived and worked as boy.
Our wonderful city has grown so much over the years that you can't tell where one city ends and another starts. Everyone says their from Dallas even if they are one of the smaller surrounding cities.
We also love bringing new companies to our city. Just down the road Toyota and State Farm have large campuses setup and are continuously hiring new people. If you are looking to make a change, Dallas is a great place to work and live.
