Dallas-Fort Worth Named Third-Best Tourist Destination in US

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 12, 2014

New developments are popping up throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area at a rate faster than most can keep up with, and this is playing a role in the Metroplexs desirability for tourists. Prudential Texas reports, citing Resonance Consultancys Top 50 U.S. Destinations 2014 report, Dallas-Fort Worth came in No. 3 for the best travel destinations.

The Dallas-Fort Worth area gained recognition for the expansion of its Arts District as well as various new attractions such as the Klyde Warren Park, Perot Museum of Nature and Science, and the George W. Bush Presidential Center at Southern Methodist University. The city also got some nods after Conan OBrien brought his late night television show to the Majestic Theatre last spring.

Its a true sentiment that Dallas-Fort Worth is gaining steam as a tried-and-true bustling metropolitan area. Growing as a tourist destination, especially as one ranked just behind New York and Los Angeles, proves that this Texas hub has so much to offer both travelers and home owners, VP of Market at Prudential Texas Properties DD Flynn, says. The more there is to do for travelers, the more opportunities locals have for job opportunities and recreation.

One of the newest attractions to the Dallas-Fort Worth area is the $ 100 million, 5.4-acre Klyde Warren Park. This urban park stretches above the freeway, connecting three districts to one another that were previously nearly impossible to commute between in any other way than a vehicle.

In 2008, the city set a vision for development and growth through various channels throughout the metropolitan region, and while the recession set officials back with certain aspects, success has been very apparent throughout the city. VisitDallas even introduced a tagline Big Things Happen Here, which grew attention from the Dallas Stars and Southwest Airlines, among others.

With development at a whirlwind, its only suiting that the Dallas housing market is following suit.
