Grand Prairie is a suburb of both Dallas and Fort Worth and has a population of about 154,000. The city has a long history with aviation manufacturing and technology but has also been a great residential area as well.
Like most cities in Texas a car is mandatory for getting around Grand Prairie. Although it may not be easy to get around the city on foot, driving is a cinch. The city hosts 3 interstates that can take you pretty much anywhere that you could want to go.
