Dallas featuring cbd, skyline and a skyscraper

This Texas city lives up to its reputation as a spot where big things happen, from arts to professional sports and a downtown cattle drive.

Come to Dallas to enjoy its diverse arts and music scene, prairie landscapes, family entertainment and historic buildings. Southern hospitality is still alive and well in Dallas, which is not a country town run by oil barons and cattle farmers anymore. Almost 7 million people live in the metroplex that is the Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington metropolitan area. In this sprawling University City technology and communications are big business.

Downtown is the city’s cultural heart with striking architecture, theaters and creative exhibits in the Arts District. Explore the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) and the Nasher Sculpture Center next door or browse the art galleries.

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza documents the assassination of American president John F. Kennedy. Housed in a former book depository in the historic West End district, you can stand on the exact location where the shot was fired that shocked a nation. The Dallas Heritage Village and the Hall of State are other interesting places to learn more about the city’s history.

Located in north-central Texas, Dallas has a subtropical climate with hot summers and mild winters that hardly ever see snowfall. On a sunny day visit the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens with stunning White Rock Lake. Bring the family to the Dallas Zoo or Dallas World Aquarium. The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is a fun educational experience, while attending an open-air concert in Klyde Warren Park is a great way to spend a warm night.

Fans of the 1980s television show Dallas should drive out to Southfork Ranch, about 40 minutes away from the city. This real mansion was the fictional home of J.R. Ewing’s scheming clan on one of the longest running series in television history.

Back in downtown Dallas, admire Reunion Tower's illuminated dome or head to the Majestic Theater to catch a live show. After a busy day of sightseeing, enjoy barbecued steaks in grill restaurants or have a drink in the popular McKinney Ave entertainment precinct.
