Big D’s reputation might be synonymous with oilmen and cowboy hats, but this city is full of surprises and offers an array of attractions for visitors to enjoy.
Insider’s tip: The Dallas Arboretum is a great venue for special events like evening concerts, and a place to enjoy nature in the city.
Fun things to do:
Nasher Sculpture Center, one of the few institutions in the world devoted to the exhibition, study, and preservation of modern sculpture. Also has an outdoor museum in the middle of the city featuring 20th century sculptures.
- History buffs will enjoy The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, which chronicles the assassination and legacy of President John F. Kennedy.
Mesquite Championship Rodeo, an authentic Texas rodeo that runs from April through September.
Our favorite restaurants: Javier’s, for elegant and delicious Mexican cuisine, or, for authentic Texas flavor, Sammy's Bar-B-Q, a bit of a hole-in-the-wall, but the best barbecue in Dallas.
