“Live wide, think big!” is the motto of the city of Dallas, which extends for 900 square kilometers and its population, including the suburbs, is composed of about 6 million. The Big D, as it is affectionately nicknamed, is the ninth largest city in the United States. Dallas was founded in 1841 by John Neely Bryan, a lawyer from Tennessee. Already at the end of the 19th century, the Texas city was dedicated to agriculture, livestock, railways and trade. Like most major American cities, Dallas is cosmopolitan and modern. It remains, to this day, the most visited city in Texas and the undisputed capital of oil.
