She loves being active and stays busy exercising, gardening, thrift shopping or planning her family’s next vacation.

Hosts asked Brooke what’s the one secret about Dallas and Fort Worth she would like to share:  “The one secret that I’m willing to share is no secret – everything’s bigger in Texas! It’s especially true when it comes to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex with a rapidly growing population of 7.7 million people spread across 9,286 square miles (larger than the states of Connecticut, Delaware and Rhode Island combined). With so much land and diversity, there are secret gems everywhere. Including the Historic Stockyards in Ft. Worth, where there is always Texas hospitality and a dozen remarkable districts full of culture and fun. Some say the secret to eating at the best BBQ restaurant is to get there early before the smoked brisket sells out. What about the secrets of the Dallas Cowboys?  Have you seen the inside of the AT&T Stadium, much less The Star in Frisco where they practice?

Those and more secrets will be revealed and solved when y’all visit Brooke in Dallas. Stay tuned as we’ll be following up with the diverse offerings from across this great destination.
