The sea of cookie cutter suburban hell set in the middle of North Central Texas. Also called The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex or DFW by locals. All the Metroplex cities are the same. If you were beamed into Arlington, Grapevine or Farmers Branch or Garland or Plano, you wouldn't be able to tell which one you were in. How are you supposed to distinguish among various outlets of Mattress Giants, look alike subdivisions and thousands of redundant strip malls?
I'm moving to Dallas-Fort Worth next month.

The largest metropolis of Texas. As of 2007, the fastest growing metro area in the country and home to almost 6 million residents. The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is almost nothing but a sea of similar looking cookie cutter housing developments that continue unabated for miles and miles across the plains of north-central Texas. All the Metroplex cities are almost the same; Garland looks like Plano looks like Carrolton looks like Irving looks like Mesquite. The DFW Metroplex has more shopping malls than anywhere else in the U.S. The massive DFW Airport lies between Dallas and Fort Worth and is the 4th busiest airport in the U.S. as well as being the main hub for American Airlines. Despite being in the same metro area, Dallas and Forth Worth are vastly different. Fort Worth is way more “western” and friendly while Dallas is more haughty and “yuppie” or urban-professional. The Dallas-Fort Worth area was traditionally driven by big oil but is now reliant on high-tech industries, wholesale/retail trade and financial services. There are more millionaire oil magnates in the DFW area than anywhere else in the U.S. People in Dallas-Fort Worth generally drive either SUVs or pickup trucks. The woman are hot for the most part. Most of the people adhere to the religion of Dallas Cowboys football on Sundays.
Dallas-Fort Worth is a good place to live depending on where you are from. It's a surburban mix of Midwestern and southwestern culture rolled into one.
