Everything’s bigger in Dallas – the buildings, the hats, the sports, the barbecue. Even its Downtown Arts District is the country’s largest, with 68 acres of museums and venues from the world’s top architects. Don’t miss the Nasher Sculpture Center, designed by Renzo Piano.
Also Downtown is Dealey Plaza, site of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Visit the Sixth Floor Museum to honor his life and legacy. For a happier image of Dallas, head to Southfork Ranch, where the TV hit "Dallas" was filmed. The country fun continues at Gilley’s, of “Urban Cowboy” fame, where you can line dance and ride the mechanical bull.
Legendary for barbecue and Tex-Mex, Dallas also dishes out haute cuisine and ethnic favorites. Upscale Uptown features top restaurants and chic nightspots, while nearby Oak Lawn provides the same for the LGBT community. Indie Bishops Art District is home to boutiques, locavore restaurants and two restored art deco theaters. Nighthawks haunt Deep Ellum for dive bars and live music. Whatever you do in Dallas, it will be epic.
