A major inland American city, Dallas is the largest city in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex – a multi-polar regional metropolis. The city and metropolitan area lies amidst vast, high, and varying rolling prairies – with hundreds of large and small lakes, rivers, creeks, waterways and meanders. Dallas, nicknamed the Big D, is often a reference to where 'America's East really ends,' and Fort Worth is where 'America's West really begins.' Freeways and suburban sprawl rule here, but the downtown boasts an impressive skyline that is all the more remarkable at night thanks to some creative lighting. Many of the towers were built up during the 1980s energy boom. This energy boom and the city were made famous with the popular "Dallas" television series that ran from 1978 to 1991.
