Anything you want

It has long been said that whatever you can get elsewhere in the world, you can find it in Dallas. Well I have not been able to prove that in it's entirety, but from what I have seen so far, it's probably true. TEX-Mex and BBQ are probably the "flavors" you can find everywhere. The other thing there is no shortage of in Dallas is bragging rights. You name it, they can brag about it. Football, baseball, hockey, rodeo, fur coats, limousines, houses, celebrities, income per capitol, big hair, diamonds, and art.

Ideally located in North Texas, it's a 2 hour drive to Austin, Oklahoma, the Hill Country, or historical East Texas. Lots to do and see if you know what to look for or who to ask.

I spent a long weekend in Dallas for a Cowboys game. While the stadium and the crowd were amazing, I found the city to be...well...a cultural wasteland. I'm sure there are some great things to see and do in Dallas, but I didn't find them on my visit. The people were fun - I got high-fived everywhere I went in my Dallas Cowboys hoodie, but when I asked our driver what else there was do do in Dallas, he gave a sly smile and replied, "Shopping malls! As many as you like!"

Like a previous review said, the streets are crazy! There are just some systems that don't work too well, and Dallas' roadways is one of them! But, pavement aside, Dallas is a lovely city. I went there several years ago for a convention. I liked the city, and the people were some of the nicest I've met.

Get a great map or take a taxi (WARNING! EXPENSIVE!) Dallas is a big city that's hard to get around ... bad public transportation and crazy streets that change names. That being said, everybody in Dallas was lovely and friendly and willing to help a lost soul....kept asking for recommendations for places to go and from local pubs with live music to high-dollar restaurants, everything was delightful! If you love Tex-Mex, you'll be in heaven!

I live in Oklahoma City, so Dallas is just about three hours away. I enjoy taking trips to Dallas because it's just like Oklahoma City(laid back and everyone is friendly), but has a lot more to do. There's a variety of different restaurants to choose from and several malls. Dallas is a great place to go to with friends, family, or your significant other. Also, there are plenty of nightclubs.
