Unless I'm mistaken Dallas is actually the 2nd largest city in the state of Texas. Houston being the largest I believe. The last time I heard the figures quoted I believe Dallas was the 8th largest city in the US.

However, with Dallas (roughly 1,000,000 population) and Fort Worth (again roughly 1,000,000) only being separated by about 30 miles, of which all is just more smaller cities like Arlington (400,000+), Irving (200,000-300,000+), Grand Prairie (400,000+), Hurst, Euless, Bedford (comprising likely another 1,000,000 - 2,000,000 or so) and when the other outlying suburbs on either of the outer sides of Dallas (just one of which is Garland with over 500,000, making it the largest suburban city in the entire US) and Fort Worth are added in there are likely another 4,000,000 - 5,000,000 in these cities making up cumulatively what's known locally as the Metroplex or DFW.

With Dallas and Fort Worth and their suburbs population and land mass lumped together it's an area stretching out from east to west over 100 miles of all urban development and housing taking a minimum of 2 hrs to traverse on the interstate highways with a total population of somewhere around 10,000,000 people total.

So .... yes Virginia, things are BIG in Texas :>winking
