Dallas Quick Guide
Dallas embraces its Old West roots with brashness and bravado. Built by cattle kings, this popular Texas metropolis once boomed with oil barons and now finds itself pioneering the frontiers of high tech.
Popular TV shows like "Dallas," which chronicled the life and times of the first family of Southfork, and the more recent reality show "Sheer Dallas," have given this first class city a Texas-sized dose of glitter and glamour as well.
Dallas's economy is driven by agriculture, distribution, electronics and technology, finance, insurance, manufacturing, petroleum and service industries.
The Dallas City Hall is located at 1500 Marilla St. and is the headquarters for many city departments and offices. Residents can also access the city's 311 telephone system for help with establishing certain utility services, obtaining permits and more.
