North Texas


Downtown Dallas.
Most of Texas' economic prowess resides in Dallas
and the Metroplex, with its information technology and
telecommunications markets.

North Texas is a distinct cultural and geographic area in the U.S. state of Texas. North Texas is generally considered to include the area south of Oklahoma, east of Abilene, Texas, and north of Waco, Texas. North Texas does not include the Panhandle of Texas, despite the fact that it extends farther north.

North Texas is centered upon the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, the largest metropolitan area in Texas. People in the Dallas and Fort Worth areas sometimes use the terms "Metroplex" and "North Texas" interchangeably. However, North Texas actually refers to a much larger area that includes many rural counties.
