Overview

Dallas: the glitz and glamor of the South. Equal parts humble and endearingly ostentatious, you can’t really argue with the Dallas attitude—and we’ll make sure your Dallas trip plan is packed to the rafters with it. After all, no matter where your home is, you can bet your boots it ain’t bigger than Dallas. Here, you’ll see tailored suits and cowboy boots and beautiful, open city parks tucked in the shadows of stunning skyscrapers. It’s a city in flux: combining the humble roots of a Wild West town with the stainless and glass shine of a major city, it's always moving, bustling, whirring, but it’s also a place that loves to take it slow and savor the finer details.

There’s something in Dallas for everyone: while shoppers will rejoice at the myriad of malls and boutiques (including Dallas's own Abi Ferrin flagship), history buffs can comb through the pages of time at the JFK Museum, the Samurai Collection (the only of its kind outside of Japan), the Old Red Museum, and the Holocaust Museum. Likewise, art connoisseurs will have plenty to choose from: the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, and the Meadows Museum all offer some of the finest pieces from antiquity all the way up to the most cutting edge of art movements. Foodies, too, can rejoice; from the legendary fine dining institution Stampede 66 to the slightly unexpected (although thoroughly delicious) Neapolitan pizzeria Cane Rosso, and from delicious seafood at Rex's to Abacus' seasonal fine dining, every palate, even the most sophisticated, will have a vast selection of delights to choose from.

From dim-lit blues bars to bright and shiny family-friendly spots, The Big D is all about giving you options; if you came to Dallas looking for a vacation, you’ll have an abundance of activities to choose from, and if you found yourself here on a business trip, exploring this amazing city may make you want to come back and check on your client. But wherever you hail from and whatever the reason for your trip is, a stay in Dallas is sure to be what you make of it: there’s adrenaline for the adventurous, decadence for the decadent, hideaways for the homebodies, and an abundance of culture for anyone to explore. Come check out this modern Wild West metropolis and see what treasures await. No matter what you find, it will be an experience you couldn’t have anywhere else but The Big D.
