Holidays to Dallas

Holidays in Dallas have the ability to surprise even the most seasoned traveller. Although one of the largest cities in Texas, popularly associated with the Wild West, oil and rugged individualism, Dallas is in fact also a place of great diversity. Dallas is home to a wide variety of cultural attractions, arts, cuisine, festivals, exhibits and events.

For sports fans, Dallas holidays can be particularly rewarding. There are several major professional sporting teams that are associated with Dallas. The Dallas Cowboys, the American football team, is among the top teams in the National Football League. The Dallas Mavericks, the basketball team, play regularly in the hugely popular National Basketball Association post-season playoffs. The Texas Rangers, the baseball team, is very popular in the area, and games in Rangers Ballpark are very well attended.

If you are interested in thrills, holidays to Dallas should include a visit to the Six Flags Over Texas theme park. This large theme park, near Arlington, has something for both children and adults. There are mega roller coasters such as the Titan and the Texas Giant. For the children, there are the Looney Tunes USA shows. The evening parade, called Glow in the Park, combines a light and sound spectacle with music and live entertainment.

Dallas is also a city of culture and the arts. The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is a large museum dedicated to the life and death of President John F. Kennedy. The museum tours are self-guided; you can listen to an audio tape explaining the museum’s major exhibits and attractions. Holidays to Dallas would not be complete without a visit to this museum dealing with the assassination of one of the United States’ most famous and popular presidents.

Galleria Dallas was named one of the ‘Top Ten Places to Spend it All’ by the newspaper USA Today and will satisfy the needs of even the most dedicated shopaholic. Galleria Dallas is home to Thomas Pink, TOUS, BCBGeneration, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Macy’s, Nordstrom and many more famous brands. The shopping centre also has a famous ice rink and an array of restaurants, coffee shops and bars. Galleria Dallas should not be missed.

As the day comes to an end, so another side to Dallas comes to life. Dallas nightlife holds many things in store for the visitors, from traditional blues and jazz bars to wine bars, restaurants and nightclubs. You can relax with your friends or family in any of the fine establishments on Greenville Avenue, home to the city’s finest restaurants and bars.

Alive and exciting during both the day and the night, there is really something for everyone to enjoy on holidays to Dallas.
