Big Things Happen Here

Big things happen in Dallas...Here are 10 fun facts about our 2019 host city:

  • Dallas is the largest landlocked metropolitan area in the U.S. You won't find any rivers or bodies of water here!

  • The Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport covers almost 27 square miles--you might want to wear your comfiest shoes if you're flying through DFW!
