Things to do in Dallas
Dallas is known for...
With its ideal location in the center of the U.S., as well as Texan tax breaks, Dallas is one of the leading corporate destinations in the country. There are 24 Fortune 500 companies in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, among them ExxonMobil, AT&T, Fluor, and Commercial Metals. The Dallas Convention Center is one of the mostly expansive and highly-trafficked facilities of its kind in the world because of the city's popularity as a business destination.
And other foods. But mostly, steak. No where in Texas is the Lone Star State's historic link to cattle ranches more deliciously evident than in Dallas. In fact, some of the country's most highly-ranked and regarded steakhouses can be found here, the most prominent of which may well be Bob's Steak and Chop House, which was ranked first by the USDA Prime Steakhouses chart in 2011. Choose between old-school traditional steakhouses, or modern, chic versions.
If you're in need of some serious retail therapy, Dallas should be your number one destination. Home to more shopping centers and districts per capita than any city in the United States, Dallas offers an unparalleled shopping landscape. The NorthPark Center and Galleria Dallas are the two titans among the city's many malls and districts, though Highland Park Village is gargantuan by any other standard, and offers a certain charm as the world's second planned shopping center and a registered historical landmark.
Dallas is enshrined in the elite pantheon of US cities that are home to four teams from each major sports (the NFL's Dallas Cowboys, the MLB's Texas Rangers, the NBA's Dallas Mavericks, and the NHL's Dallas Stars.) Dallas is also the only city in America to have hosted the Super Bowl, the World Series, and the NBA Finals all within the same year. A trip to Cowboys stadium in nearby Arlington is a must-do for any traveler in Dallas.
It may come as a surprise that a beacon of culture and high culture can be found so near the heart of what some might call "cowboy country," but Dallas claims that accolade. Visit the Arts District in the northern sector of Dallas's downtown where you'll find the Dallas Museum of Art, the Mortan H. Meyerson Symphony Center, and the impressive Nasher Sculpture Center. There's also the nearby AT&T Dallas Center for the Performing Arts, home to the Dee and Charles Wyly Theater and the Winspear Opera House.
