Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex

This is the famous South Fork Ranch from the TV Show, Dallas.  It is located near Plano, Texas.  I visited it back in the 1990s when we lived in Plano, TX.

I went back to the DFW Metroplex in June of 2013 for meetings.  Here is a show of downtown Dallas from the Executive Lounge at the Hilton Anatole Hotel.  Reunion Tower is visible on the right.  I love the Dallas skyline!

The two greaetst sports venues in the country are in Arlington, TX.  The Rangers Ballpark in Arlington and Cowboys Stadium are shown in this picture.  I was going to a Rangers game when I took this picture.

Arlington is also home to Six Flags Over Texas.  The Titan and Texas Giant were awesome rollercoasters!

The Fort Worth Stock Yards are a fun place to walk around.  They have live cattle auctions out here.  It has a very old west kind of feel to it.

I am riding a steer at the Fort Worth Stockyards in my Texas Rangers gear!  I am thinking about joining the PBR Circuit :) JK

Billy Bobs at the Fort Worth Stockyards is known as the world's largest honky tonk.  It is an awesome place!

The George W. Bush Presidential Center & Library is located at SMU.  I think it is definately worth a visit when one comes to Dallas.

The World Headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys is at the Star in Frisco, Texas.  The Ford Center is amazing to check out!

Make sure to check out a Braum's in the DFW area for some great dairy products!

The Dallas Galleria in Addison is an amazing four story mall with an ice skating rink!  I recommend staying at the Westin which is seen above the glass.

    Out of all the places that I have lived, the DFW Metroplex remains my favorite!  The Great State of Texas is an awesome place to live.  The people are really friendly, and there is no state income tax either!  The women are just unbelievable gorgeous too!  The homes are huge too!  I went back to visit the DFW area in 2013 when I had meetings there for work.  I stayed around for a few days after to go see my Texas Rangers play the Cincinatti Reds and also tour some of the areas that we did not visit when I was a little kid.  The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex includes Dallas, Fort Worth, and surrounding cities like Arlington, Plano, Richardson, Coppell, Irving, Duncanville, Addison, Farmer's Branch, University Park, Highland Park, and others!
