Understanding Dallas-Fort Worth

Dallas-Fort Worth, or DFW, is a metroplex filled with a number of cities, towns, and municipalities. (Some may refer to the whole metroplex as Dallas, some may refer to us as Fort Worth, and some even use DFW or North Texas.)

In the late 19th century, Fort Worth became an important trading post for cowboys at the end of the Chisholm Trail. Today, it’s a modern city, with international art institutions, plenty of five-star restaurants and multiple options for entertainment. The historic Fort Worth Stockyards are home to rodeos, shopping, and the
National Cowgirl Museum.
