A Few Reasons to Visit Dallas

There are subcultures hidden within the US that many people do not know about, and when they learn of them, they seek them out to understand how people who are much like are live. Dallas has a long-standing reputation as the subculture of the cowboy, so that tourists know that if they want a place of excitement, stimulation, and intellectual intrigue, they can come to Dallas. Throughout the generations, the cowboy culture has been crafted to become more amenable to the tourist so people can take in everything the city has to offer. Visitors often choose to stay in one of the five star hotels, many of which offer hot tubs and are in walking distance to some of the city's famed attractions.

Hiking

In a day of industry, cement, and construction, it can be easy to forget that the earth is naturally a quiet and serene place. The human being's natural habitat has never been indoors. That is why people are often stricken with a flash of excitement when they venture onto one of Dallas's many hiking trails, (such as the Katy Trail, or one of the many trails across the Texas Panhandle) to enjoy an afternoon of exercise and taking in the natural pictures that are laid out before them. Hikers in Dallas enjoy long stretches of trails and a long sky as they watch the sun peaking below (or ascending above) the horizon.

Zero Gravity Amusement Park

Sometimes, it is a good thing to take the kids on vacation with you. It gives you an excuse to engage in those exhilarating activities that you have long left behind. The Zero Gravity Amusement Park is a great way to spend an afternoon. When you were a child, you might have been too afraid to go bungee jumping, and this might be something that you have already regretted. You might have always regretted that you have taken a pass on the big roller coaster with the daunting heights. Now, this is something that you and your children can enjoy together. There are few greater parental delights than seeing a child unable to contain his excitement about his day at the amusement park. The day at the Zero Gravity Park is likely to be a day that he is going to remember for years to come.

Dealey Plaza

"My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." These words were uttered by the great US President, John F. Kennedy before he was assassinated in 1963 in Dealey Plaza in downtown Texas. Today, Dealey has become a historical landmark, not to celebrate the death of a great man but to remember his life and to educate the American people about John F. Kennedy. A visit to this site is a reminder that the great state of Texas has had a central and fundamental role in American history.

Weather

Some tourists (particularly those from the north) will think that the Summers in Dallas are just a bit too intimidating. In addition to the packed hotels and beaches, the sun is blazing and the air is a bit too humid. But the Autumn is very comfortable and less humid, and many think it is a great time to visit.

How to Get There

Throughout the city, services like Uber and Lyft are accessible and not too expensive. It also has a developed train and bus system. But the easiest and most convenient method of travel is to rent your own vehicle or a private car service.

Everything's bigger in Texas, including game day

Dallas has so much to offer, they had to divide it up into 9 districts just to keep track of it all. Just saying. To assimilate with the locals, go shopping and ice skating at the Galleria mall, followed by seeing the Dallas Cowboys play football. And even if you didn’t see the game, say you did. With earnest. The annual State Fair of Texas offers up local delicacies like corny dogs, and deep fried anything. Be sure to check out the gorgeous city skyline at night, or take one of the popular wine tasting tours.

With so much to see and do, you’ll never be bored in Dallas

If you want to blend in with the locals, visit the Sixth Floor Museum in downtown Dallas at Dealey Plaza, which commemorates President Kennedy’s 1963 assassination. And speaking of Presidents, check out The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, along with works of art at Nasher Sculpture Center and the Dallas Museum of Art. Visit Dallas World Aquarium, and then take a 12-minute walk over to the famous Dallas Cattle Drive Sculptures at Pioneer Plaza.

Yep, sometimes the weather is bigger in Dallas

The summer season in Dallas can be hot. Like hot as Hades hot. Think upper 90s. During winter, temperatures will dip down into the low 30s, so you'll definitely need your parka. And while you may be used to snow where you’re from, Dallas natives stay home when it snows. Seriously, they do. And everyone complains about the rain. Then it stops. Then they complain about how dry it is. You get the idea. You'll find the lowest prices when booking Dallas vacation rentals during the spring and fall, when temperatures are more moderate.

Dallas, where the big city offers big nature

Yep, everything’s bigger in Texas, even the cities. Dallas ranks in the top 10 largest in the country with a population of 1.3 million residents. But among all these people are cool opportunities to view nature and wildlife including at the Dallas Zoo and the 66-acre Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens. Check out the birds at Rogers Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, or visit Cedar Ridge Preserve, where mammals and reptiles are king. Nearby Cedar Hill State Park is home to armadillos, raccoons and coyotes. Or you can learn about real giants at Dinosaur Valley State Park, about 81 miles southwest.
