So my family is moving to Dallas and I'm curious as to what to expect in terms of lifestyle, culture, views on homosexuality and just the overall "vibe" of the city. I heard it can be pretty fake/flashy and a lot of people like to "keep up with the Jones'." Is that true?

I know its hard to generalize a city as large as Dallas so if this is a bad question I apologize in advance.

Also, I'm coming from NY. I know my profile says Honolulu (I was there on vacation when I made this account lol) so maybe a comparison with the NYC metropolitan area could be helpful too.

Thanks guys!
