Dallas is doing big things and Houston,Atlanta,Chicago and etc.......need to get out of town more why Dallas is metro 7million strong and coming for Chicago spot.

Dallas is the biggest metro in the South, yet out of the 4 major Southern metros(Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Miami), it gets by far the lowest visitors numbers both domestically and internationally lol.

That may be true but more people choose to live here. Not being a touristy place is also a positive thing. As someone said in another thread, Dallas is a very practical city and I completely agree!

Hell, the fair park area looks like a small, poor country town. Look at Pleasant Grove....nothing "city" about it. Same goes for coming into dallas from the west on i30.
Have you ever heard of urban blite?

Mainly, because companies don't want to invest in the Southern areas of Dallas. Once the racial turnover started the investment stopped. Mayor Rawlings is doing a great job trying to get investment into Southern Dallas, that's where the potential growth is.

Large portions of I-45 cannot be developed because of the Great Trinity Forest and the Trinity River Floodplain. Bruh, Ledbetter/Loop12 is NOT rural.

There's another 1.4 million people North of Fort Lauderdale up in Palm Beach County. Then there's another 1.8million residents living in Dade County South of Miami Gardens. Miami Gardens is an exburb on the Northern tip of Dade County, it's not even in Miamis city-limits and it's nowhere close to the population centers of Downtown Miami and Miami Beach. The area from Miami Gardens to Fort Lauderdale that you visited only accounts for maybe half the metro area at most. Pretty much the equivalent of visiting downtown Sandy Springs and Marrietta without even entering the city limits of Atlanta.
