Welcome to DFW

Welcome to DFW
There’s a lot of reasons to move to North Texas: Jobs, college…ok, just two reasons. But those have made the Dallas-Fort Worth region one of the fastest growing in the nation. The good news for transplants is that there’s a lot going on to ease any boredom or homesickness. There are also an array of burning public issues bubbling over here that span the political spectrum. Making sense of a new place is never easy, but we got you covered. The Dallas Observer has covered DFW in its own undaunted fashion since 1980, and continues to do so on the website and weekly newspaper. This page is dedicated to those who just arrived, or those who’ve been here a while and never bothered to explore the area just outside their door. But to keep up with news as it happens, check in with the Observer. And welcome to DFW—you’re glad you’re here. We swear.
