Dallas is certainly not the Texas of pickup trucks and cowboy boots. You can find world-class museums and restaurants, funky neighborhoods, swanky shopping malls, gritty bars and a vibrant music scene. And the nearly yearround warm weather makes it ideal for getting work done in a cafe patio. If you are a sports fan or ready to hit the town and explore the best in arts, culture and dining, Dallas will surprise you. Start your getaway with the experiences you can only have in Dallas – savor tasty treats from local celebrity chefs, walk through history at the latest presidential library in the country or take in a glorious view from high in the sky. Let the bold, vibrant spirit of Dallas, with a touch of Texas charm, guide the way to your BIG Dallas moment.
