Where exactly is Fort Worth going to go?

That's a ridiculous post by brajoh81. Fort Worth and Dallas have long been rivals, but nowadays it's good-natured as far as I know. I much prefer Fort Worth, but I work in Dallas as a professional musician quite often. I'll grant you that Amon Carter wasn't so good-natured about it, but that was a long time ago.

Sorry to burst your bubble. Both Houston and San Antonio are larger than Dallas. Having lived in both Dallas and Houston, I'd also have to say that Houston has more world class cultural attractions - arts, museums, etc. With all the universities that call Houston home, it is also a more youthful, intellectual, and openminded city. Dallas doesn't seem to be as forward thinking - at least when it comes to the city and county leaders.....

Dallas vs Houston Dallas and Fort Worth have already stopped complaining about things unlike people from Houston who keep starting most of these threads

And FYI Dallas has one of the USAs most biggest art and music districts so sure Houston also has a lot of museums but sorry to break it to ya Dallas is way better than Houston economically, and Dallas has more fame, and DFW metroplex has more Sports TEXAS Rangers, Dallas cowboys (one of the most successful franchises), Dallas Mavricks, Dallas Stars, and FW has the TEXA motor speedway. Another thing I that The Dallas Fort Worth Metro has 3/50 top USA cities (Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington) and it still has more when it's top 100 cities in USA (McKinney, Plano, Grand Prarie, Irving, etc.)

And if I'm right DFW has more billionaires than Houston and its actually in the top 5 of the worlds billionaire cities, and they have more professional sport teams and TEXAS motor speedway, and Dallas is leading Texas economically, and Fort Worth is having rapid growth (one of the fastest growing cities in USA) and Irving is a small city beside Dallas and the Gov visited the city because there economic growth is booming

D/FW has more billionaires (albeit not by much) Houston has more millionaires.

So far Dallas has more fame by media than Houston they brought back "Dallas", Dallas is in more commercials, Dallas also has attracted "Extra" where tet gossip about celebs I'm guessing, they've added DFW but they show it on weekends and feufoma yes Dallas is leading Texas in Economic growth Moderator cut: rude DFW has also been ranked one of the best cities in the USA to start business. Metro Matt we also have the 17th richest person on Earth.
