The third largest city in Texas, Dallas does not fit many of the more typical Texan stereotypes (Western, laid-back, casual). It also does not live up to some of its more notorious stereotypes (pretentious, unfriendly, sterile). Like many things, the truth lies somewhere in between, and Dallas is a wonderfully diverse place, with a great deal to offer. From the ultra-modern and posh Uptown, to the old-world elegance of Turtle Creek, to the largely-suburban North Dallas, it's virtually impossible to categorize. Though largely metropolitan, the crime rate is fairly low, except for in the seedier areas of the city.
