Welcome to our Spotlight Series where we will be sharing something FAB about cities in our great D.FW…starting from A-Z.
14th Stop: Garland
Garland is part of the 4th largest region in the nation, the DFW Metroplex, which continues to attract new business and corporate expansions despite the current challenges in the world economy. Not only does Garland offer a diverse and stable economy for businesses and residents to relocate and succeed, but the city has also taken steps to provide excellent opportunities for its residents to enjoy living and working here.
Global products are made here. As a manufacturing hub, jobs in fabrication and manufacturing are the foundation, but healthcare, technology and wireless communication round out the city’s economic diversity. One of the most iconic manufacturers, Resistol has made cowboy hats in Garland since 1938, visitors can visit the outlet store and take home an iconic Texas souvenir.
Entertainment happens here. Shopping, dining, events and the arts provide a sampling of Garland’s unique multi-cultural environment. Explore the facets of the community by attending an event or sampling a new restaurant. Take in one of many performances from musicals to concerts or attend a movie in the historic Plaza Theatre. With 2,800 acres of parks, athletic fields, two water parks, two nature preserves and 63 holes of golf everyone should find something to enjoy outdoors.
History happened here. Native Americans first appreciated the land, followed by pioneers who laid the foundation of the community. Learn about the historic highway that passed down Main Street, visit the museum in an old Santa Fe Depot and explore the historic downtown area.
Texas Made Here tells the Garland story. History, global products, memories and possibilities are all made here.
