Remember everything is bigger in Texas
Visitors to Dallas will love this sophisticated southern city's cuisine, culture, and sports. Peek in at the exhibitions at the Dallas Museum of Art, catch a game at the American Airlines Center, or see a show at the old school Granada Theater. Just make sure you don't skip dinner. Have some ribs and brisket, or go Tex-Mex, and dig into tacos and enchiladas.
Dallas serves as the location of some unique past events, and there's no better place to explore this than the Sixth Floor Museum. This is the site where Lee Harvey Oswald's gunshots changed the course of American history forever.
If you've had enough of the big city, immerse yourself in one of Dallas's many lush parks and instantly forget that you're surrounded by tall buildings. The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens is a popular choice for a day with the family, and Klyde Warren Park is perfect for those seeking a little elevation.
Driving is a breeze in the city and should be your preferred mode of transit. You'll find paid street parking and parking garages alongside nearly any Dallas destination. If you'd rather park and ride, leave the car at a DART station and ride the Dallas Area Rapid Transit to some of the downtown hotspots.
