The ‘Wow’ Factor
Searching for a location to call home that will WOW your family? Of course you are! With new neighborhoods sprouting up everywhere, high ranking schools, sports and cultural venues, our cutting edge culinary scene, and our thriving arts and entertainment, there’s no shortage of exceptional experiences in Big D. Whether you’re considering Dallas, with its more than $20 billion in current and future development, or the famously walkable and charming city of Fort Worth,there’s never been a better time or place to impress your family.
Dallas and Fort Worth are both unique cities serving up a completely different slice of North Texas. Although they are only about 30 miles apart, with fabulous suburbs in between, these two North Texas cities offer their own distinct viewpoint on arts, culture and lifestyles. Cowtown’s “Wows” come in the form of the world’s only twice daily cattle drive, the world’s largest honky-tonk, world-class art museums, and out of this world NASCAR racing at Texas Motor Speedway. Bull-riding, boots, and cowboys is what Fort Worth is best known for, but there’s so much more to experience that you will fall in love with.
If your relocation trip is only for a day or two, you might want to choose whether you want the Dallas or the Fort Worth experience: The sheer distance between the two cities and the many activities to choose from will force you to be selective. However, several of the best Dallas tours offer day trips to Fort Worth, which could be a good option if you're short on time. Taking three days to a week to explore both sides of D/FW will expose you to the Metroplex's true nature that all the locals enjoy.
