United States Atlas > Travel Photos | Dallas Skyline

 
Dallas is flashy in its wealth, with modern skyscrapers filling the skyline.  The city succeeded in winning a Federal Reserve bank in 1911, securing its place as a financial center.  The discovery of oil near the city in 1931 attracted significant business to the area, helping Dallas to weather the Great Depression.  Major corporations from Texas Instruments to Pizza Hut are headquartered here as well.  Texans clearly love sports; the NFL Dallas Cowboys, MLS Dallas Burn, NBA Dallas Mavericks, NHL Dallas Stars, and MLB Texas Rangers all play in the over-6-million-resident metropolitan area of Dallas-Fort Worth.  The family-friendly Mesquite Championship Rodeo celebrates the western cowboy culture of the region.
