Expect big things when you come to Dallas. The hub of the fourth-largest metropolitan area in the U.S. teems with excitement: designer shopping, western heritage, the nation’s largest urban arts district, and unforgettable family-friendly attractions. The city is also home to fourteen exciting entertainment districts, a cutting-edge culinary scene led by celebrity chefs, and teams representing five major professional sports leagues. Fans come from all over to enjoy the world-renowned Dallas Cowboys and NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks.
Dallas is a shoppers’ ultimate paradise! Said to be the birthplace of shopping, it has more retail than any other city in the U.S. Visitors enjoy NorthPark Center, home to world-class sculpture and fashion; and the popular Galleria Dallas, which USA Today calls “One of the Top 10 shopping places to spend it all!” When in downtown, be sure to visit the flagship Neiman Marcus. For incredible selections and value, take advantage of outlet shopping at Allen Premium Outlets, Grand Prairie Premium Outlets and Grapevine Mills — all within easy driving distances of downtown.
Dallas is a sports fans’ dream. Called the “Best Sport City in America,” it’s the only city in the Southwest U.S. where you can find all major American sports leagues. Cheer on the world-renowned Dallas Cowboys in the landmark $1.2 billion Cowboys Stadium. Head to the American Airlines Center to root for the NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks or the NHL’s Dallas Stars. Or visit the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, to catch major league baseball’s Texas Rangers. Is soccer your sport? Dallas has it, too! Catch an FC Dallas game nearby.
Dallas has plenty of fun for everyone, from one of the top 5 zoos in the USA, the Dallas Zoo, to the stunning Perot Museum of Nature and Science, showcasing interactive displays and recently discovered dinosaur bones that can only be seen here! Visit the nation’s largest urban arts district with its magnificent museums or catch a performance at the spectacular halls that compose the AT&T Performing Arts Center. Take a ride in the historical McKinney Avenue Trolley to explore the art galleries, restaurants and bars in Uptown.
History buffs will want to spend time at the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza to learn about the legacy of JFK; or at the George W Bush Presidential Center, to learn more about American history and get their picture taken at the Oval Office. When the sun goes down, a view from the GeO-Deck at Reunion tower is a must, before heading to one of Dallas’ 14 unique entertainment districts to party the night away!
