They say everything is bigger in Texas, and Dallas proves that to be true. The Galleria Dallas is home to the country's tallest indoor Christmas tree. The largest permanent model train display decorates the Dallas Children's Medical Center. And the 52-foot statue at the Texas State Fair held every year in Dallas called "Big Tex" is the tallest cowboy in Texas—and probably the entire U.S. Dallas has also set a big record for gaining new residents. In the last decade, more than 1 million people moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It makes sense—it's a city with economic growth and a gain in Dallas jobs.
In addition to its larger-than-life reputation, Dallas is also known for its seven professional sports teams. Others see it as a nature center with more than 60 lakes and 50,000 acres of public parkland. Others know it as the capital of American wealth, with some of the wealthiest Americans calling it home. So if you're moving to the area and looking for jobs in Dallas, you might also want to check out neighboring cities as well, including McKinney, Frisco, and Plano.
