A 'burb just northeast of Fort Worth, TX. One little city after another. We're all shoulder to shoulder around here, can't throw a stone without hitting someone, but not at all like Buffalo or NJ. Hence, I refer to the location as the DFW Metromess.
45 minutes south to historically and culturally rich Boston, Ma, or 2 hours south to relaxing Cape Cod. 1 hour east to sandy ocean beaches, or northeast to rocky coast of Maine. 1 1/2 hours north or 2 hours west to the verdant mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont.
