American Adventure- Dallas, TX

Dallas, a modern and clean metropolis in north Texas. This large American city is a commercial and cultural hub of the big state of Texas. With a population of around 1.5 million people, Texas is a great place to find cultural variety and southern charm.

Below you will find a quick re-cap of my stay in Dallas.

My Experience

During my short trip there, I was able to experience some great locations with some amazing people. Dallas has continued to surprise me with it’s great weather and southern hospitality. Growing up between Atlanta and Alabama, I felt right at home in this great city.
Recommendations:
The city is HUGE, so getting around can be difficult. If you do not have a car, I would recommend taking Uber and DART (public train) around the city.

Places To Go

Due to it’s interesting history, the city has a wide variety of great places to explore.

1. If you are in downtown, check out the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza. This place commemorates the site of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963

2. In the Arts District, try the Dallas Museum of Art (admission is free to everyone!) and the Crow Collection of Asian Art cover thousands of years of art.
3. Want something a little more unusual? Take a look at the sleek Nasher Sculpture Center showcases contemporary sculpture.
4. If you’re looking for a great place to chill, try Klyde Warren Park. This beautiful park is located on top of the highway and has amazing views of the skyline.

Places to eat

In addition to it’s unique locations, Dallas also has some amazing food options. If you’re looking for some great places to eat, I would recommend the following:

Fast Food: In-N-Out Burger, Whataburger, and Torchy’s Tacos
Texan Food: The Pecan Lodge, The Rustic, The Alligator Cafe
Unique Places for Foodies: Zaguan and Sablon

Night Life

Night life in Dallas isn’t for the major party crowds. Due to Dallas’ insanely clean city, the “party” scene is more tailored for the Young and Bold professionals, so most places don’t stay open past 1 AM. If you do want to find a nice place to go during the weekday, try the places below:

Happiest Hour- beautiful skyline views of the city
Veritas Wine Room- for those who enjoy a great glass of vino
Arboretum- a unique place with charm

Final Thoughts

After having two great experiences in Dallas, I noticed that the city really offers more than the normal Texan stereotypes of big hats, cowboy boots, and large hair. Dallas is a beautiful city was large and unique buildings and amazing artwork. Don’t believe me, see for yourself!

Pack your bags, and say “Yeehaw”!
