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.
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
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
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 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
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”!
