allas and Fort Worth together may be known as the Metroplex, but they’re like peas
and carrots. They go together beautifully, but each has a very distinct identity. It’s each
city’s unique appeal that attracts thousands of relocating families and individuals to the
area every year.
Consider that the U.S. Census Bureau estimated the 2013 Dallas population at 1,257,676, a gain of
5% since 2010, while neighboring Fort Worth also grew to a total population of 777,992, an increase
of 6.8% in the same time frame. With low cost of living, affordable housing, a temperate climate, top
companies, employment opportunities, a renowned restaurant scene, and two airports that together offer
more than 2,000 flights daily, it’s easy to see why the Dallas/Fort Worth area is a great place to put
down roots – in whichever Metroplex city you choose to make your home.
With ten major metro areas and thirteen counties, the DFW Metroplex covers a vast geographical area,
the largest metro in the South. Major metros include Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Plano, Irving, Garland,
