Dallas’ slogan says so much about Texas – “Live Large. Think Big”. These two major cities, separated by 30 miles of suburbs actually have quite different characters.
Fort Worth first became prosperous when the town was a stop on the Chisholm Trail, and continued when the city became a major railhead. The cattle that were herded through town more than a century ago still define the city, and its nickname, "Cowtown," persists to this day. The city and its people are deliberate and mindful of the city’s western legacy, while at the same time sophisticated and with a strong heritage of culture.
In Dallas, by contrast, progress and image are the name of the game. It's hard to imagine the showy Victory Park – Dallas's newest entertainment district – fitting in anywhere in Fort Worth. The city and its people want to be leading trends rather than following the masses, and they have been known to take themselves very seriously indeed.
Whichever you choose, a holiday to Dallas or a holiday to Fort Worth will be a great experience; from urban centres bustling with excitement to charming, historic downtown squares, you’ll discover hidden treasures and fantastic sights at every turn. Explore the world-class museums, incredible shopping, sporting events, live entertainment, amusement parks and a rich and celebrated history.
