Dallas is a city located primarily in Dallas County, Texas (of which it is also the county seat), though sections of the city are also located in nearby Collin, Denton, Kaufman and Rockwall counties. Home to over 1.3 million residents, Dallas is currently the third-largest city in Texas by total population and, together with Fort Worth, makes up the Dallas-Forth Worth Metropolitan Statistical Area, an urban area home to over 6.8 million residents – almost 25% of the entire population of Texas. 

Dallas as a city was founded in 1841 and was formally incorporated as a city in 1856. It was named as the county seat of Dallas County upon the county’s formation in 1846, which helped to spur growth. Railroads brought yet more people, and Dallas began to turn into a bustling business and commercial center within the Texas frontier. By the turn of the 20th century Dallas had become an economic and industrial powerhouse in interior Texas, and over the years the city has continued to grow and prosper. Today, Dallas is a major economic and financial powerhouse – it is home to several Fortune 500 Companies and several more are located in the Dallas-Forth Worth metropolitan area, which is also know as the Dallas-Forth Worth Metroplex.

Spring and autumn are chock full of nice weather and transportation services are generally at their most average during these months. However, the weather in the spring can be quite severe and can change in a matter minutes. The city sits in a humid subtropical climate, which means that lots of warm, dry winds flow through the city. Strong cold fronts from the north cause nightly lows to drop lower than 10 degrees at times during the winter months, though snow is seen only 3 days out of the year (on average).
