"Big D", as Dallas has been nicknamed for half a century, fulfills the reputation that everything is bigger in Texas. As half of the metroplex that stretches west towards Forth Worth, Dallas is a hotbed of culture, history, and athletics. With vast art collections, unique museums, and massive stadiums, Dallas can have something for every traveler to explore.
Spanning sixty-eight acres, Dallas boasts one of the largest urban art districts in the United States where you can explore the Dallas Museum of Art and the Nasher Sculpture Center, or see a performance at the AT&T Performing Arts Center. For history buffs, visit the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealy Plaza, which documents President John F. Kennedy’s life, death, and legacy. At Old City Park, the Dallas Heritage Village offers a rich, living history experience, providing something for the whole family. Don’t forget an outing to the Dallas Zoo, Dallas World Aquarium, or the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, which is packed with exciting exhibits on dinosaurs, fossils, birds, and more.
No trip to Dallas is complete without seeing one of its many sporting arenas, most notably the massive AT&T Stadium, home to the Dallas Cowboys. With a capacity for 80,000 fans on game days, it’s the largest domed stadium in the country. If you’re not interested in seeing a game, tours of the venue are still available to see its art collection, private suites, press box, locker rooms, and the field.
