The Easy Way to See the Big D
In Texas, there’s only one way they do things—big—and if you’re looking for the biggest of the big, you have to go to Dallas. The Cotton Bowl is there, with room for more than 92,000 screaming fans. You’ll see Big Tex, the 55 foot tall mascot of the state fair, as well as the huge Calder sculptures at the Dallas Museum of Art.
It’s the biggest city in Texas and it’s only getting bigger. Over the last decade, no American city has grown faster. There’s no end to the things you can do and see in Dallas, but with lots of traffic and highways running in all directions getting around can be an issue. Even the locals refer to Highway 75, one of the main arteries, as the “Central Distressway.” If you’re planning a group trip to this great city, make it easy on everyone, with a charter bus rental from US Coachways. Relax with family and friends while someone else handles all the details.

Enjoy the Unique Neighborhoods in Dallas
Dallas is a city of neighborhoods, each with its own distinct attitude and offerings. Some that you’ll want to check out include:
- Deep Ellum/Central Track—For nearly 150 years, this community east of downtown Dallas has been the place to go for live music, art and great places to eat. It’s now home to more than 60 restaurants, a couple dozen live music venues and many one-of-a-kind shopping experiences, from cheese makers and candle shops to butchers, brewers and pie-makers.
- Oak Cliff—Also known alternatively as “The Cliff,” or OC,” this has long been a home to musicians, from T-Bone Walker to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Michael Martin Murphey and Edie Brickell. It’s also home to the Texas Theatre, where Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested after the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
- Highland Park—This neighborhood, really more of a town within the city of Dallas, was founded in 1906, originally envisioned as a high-class community with upscale homes surrounded by plenty of green space. In 1931, city fathers opened Highland Park Village, the first true shopping mall in America and the prototype for most that followed. It’s now home to boutiques and high-end shopping experiences, with horse-drawn carriage rides and an annual Christmas tree lighting.
Dallas—The Go-To Place for Fans of All Sports
Everybody knows it’s home to America’s Team—the five-time Super Bowl champion Dallas Cowboys. No question about it—this is a football town in a football state. The Cotton Bowl has been the site of some of the most storied games in college and professional football, and home to the Mustangs of Southern Methodist University. But there’s something for fans of every major sport. The Mavericks, who won the NBA title in 2011, play their home games in Victory Park, as to the former Stanley Cup champions the Dallas Stars. Major league baseball’s Texas Rangers thrill fans in nearby Arlington.
Dallas also boasts some of the finest golf courses in the state and across the nation. Stevens Park, dubbed “Little Augusta” by local linksters, boasts a total redesign (2011) that now includes some of the most difficult holes you’ll ever encounter. The Texas Star Golf Course, in the suburb of Euless, has been recognized by Golf Weekly and Golf Digest as one of the top public golf courses in Texas. Tierra Verde, in nearby Arlington, has the unique distinction of having been certified as a bird sanctuary by the national Audubon Society, the first golf course in the world to be so recognized.
The Rich Historical Legacy of Dallas
One of the most visited landmarks in Dallas is the Sixth-Floor Museum in the Dealey Plaza National Historic Landmark District, where President John F. Kennedy fell to a sniper’s bullet. You’ll learn about the political turmoil of the early 60s and can view the sniper’s perch where most experts believe Lee Harvey Oswald fired the fatal shots. There’s also a historical marker in front of the old Dallas police headquarters, identifying the spot where nightclub owner Jack Ruby killed Oswald two days after the president was slain.
To learn more about the historical origins and growth of Dallas, visit the Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park. Built on the site of the city’s first public park, Heritage Village lets you see how people lived and survived here in the 19th century. There’s also the Old Red Museum, in the former county courthouse facility, which offers insight into the history of Dallas and the surrounding communities. Stop by the Dallas County Historical Plaza to view the John Neely Bryan Cabin, a rebuilt model of the home and trading post built in 1841 by Bryan, whom many consider the founder of the city.
Dallas—A Haven for Patrons of the Arts
Whether it’s visual or performing arts that move you, Dallas has much to offer. In the Dallas Arts District, covering some 20 city blocks, you can take in a concert from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra or enjoy live productions at the Wyly Theatre or Moody Performance Hall. The Dallas Museum of Art, with more than 24,000 pieces in its collection, houses paintings by El Greco and French painter Edgar Degas, as well as Rodin’s Sculptor and His Muse.
Dallas—Home to World Class Dining and Shopping
Dallas has a rich legacy as one of the principal stockyards of America. It’s no surprise, then, that Dallas has many outstanding steakhouses and barbeque joints. The steaks are big in Dallas—some weigh in at more than a pound. For barbeque fans, Dallas means beef barbeque and that means brisket. You’ll also find a virtually endless array of great Tex-Mex restaurants, but you can also enjoy fine dining Mexico City style. But the explosive growth in Dallas over the past 10 years has been multicultural, showing up in the dizzying array of food options here. There’s Indian, Polynesian, Hungarian, Armenian, Filipino, Ethiopian, Thai and Moroccan, among many other ethnic cuisines.
For shoppers, the first stop needs to be Highland Park Village, where the concept of the modern mall started. The city also has one of the largest Gallerias in the nation, and the Northpark Center has more than two million square feet of dining and retail. For unique treasures and one-off stores, visit Deep Ellum or the West Village.
