Prairies and Lakes
The Prairies and Lakes Region is located in the north central part of Texas. It is home to the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States. This region also has a beautiful countryside with ranches, "bed and breakfasts", and many recreational lakes. Whether you're looking for the excitement of a big town (shopping, dining, nightlife), or for a more leisurely time in the rural areas, you'll find it here in the Prairies and Lakes Region.
The area is simple to get around, especially in the Metroplex. A large network of freeways and loops exists throughout Dallas/Fort Worth.
DART is the public transportation system in Dallas, operating an extensive bus and rail network. For stays in the downtow/uptown Dallas area, the rail network can be a very inexpensive and efficient way to travel.
Nearby Fort Worth operates "The T". Primarily a bus system, The T does operate a train which travels between downtown Fort Worth and Dallas, interchanging with DART rail upon reaching Dallas.
