Dallas is an oasis of civilization, art, and shopping in the middle of the Texas prairie. You can spend your days meandering through art galleries, shopping at major stores like Nieman Marcus and chic boutiques, and eating in world-class restaurants. Why not cap the day off with a show by Shakespeare Dallas.
Even though itís a cosmopolitan city, Dallas is still a Texan city so put on your cowboy boots, eat some barbecue and get ready to do some line dancing. Many of the fine restaurants serve up a great Texas steak and some tangy, smoky barbecue. And the nightlife includes a number of places where you can experience authentic honky tonk music.Spectator Sports
Five-time Super Bowl Champs the Dallas Cowboys are just one of the great spectator sports teams in Dallas. In addition to the hometown favorite NFL team (and their famous cheerleaders), thereís baseball, basketball, hockey, and even rodeo to watch.
The Texas Rangers, which were once owned by former President George W. Bush, are the hometown baseball team. Their stadium is retro-style, reminiscent of the golden age of baseball when stadiums felt intimate, like a large ballpark for your summer family.
Dallas also supports pro basketball team the Mavericks and pro hockey team the Stars. But for something a little less than mainstream, consider checking out the rodeo. The Mesquite Championship Rodeo is one of the best in Texas featuring calf roping, bull riding, and chuck wagon races.Arts and Culture
