From the landmark neon Pegasus erected in 1934 atop the “Magnolia Oil” building (Mobil Oil) to the Broadway musical song “Big D, little a, double L, A-S”, exuberance may be the most defining word to describe Dallas, Texas.

Guest Life Houston Relocation Sky's the new limit for urban living in Texas, and beyond

This is the largest state in the contiguous USA, stretching more than 700 miles from east to west and north to south, and space often seems infinite. Here, living large — and spread out — hasn't been just a choice but almost a birthright. What changed? Gas prices soared. Traffic congestion choked highways. Air quality worsened and so did pressure from environmental regulators. Light-rail lines came online. And demographics shifted: As baby boomers became empty nesters, their desire for convenience and fun suddenly merged with those of young professionals. Both groups are flocking to urban settings.

The following are links to sites I have found that have very useful or entertaining information about the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
