things to do in dallas texas 5 good reasons to visit this Texas city


Culture, parks, architecture and the art of living, the third largest city in Texas has many surprises in store for travelers passing through. Here are some good reasons to linger in the streets of the so-called “Big D”.

Get lost in the Dallas Arts District

The greatest architectural achievements, sometimes unconventional, are concentrated in this district, north of Downtown. All the great designers of the XXe century are represented, such as Renzo Piano with the Nasher Sculpture Center, and Ieoh Ming Pei and his Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. There is also one of the emblematic towers of the city: the Reunion Tower (171 m), built in 1978.

Learn in world-class museums

Sadly famous for having been the scene of the assassination of the President of the United States John Fitzgerald Kennedy in 1963, the city of dallas pays homage to him in a museum: The Sixth Floor Museum. The whole life of 35e President of the United States is traced through period films and photographs. The Dallas Arts District lists a dozen other museums, including the Dallas Museum of Art, which presents more than 20,000 works covering 5,000 years of artistic history.

Stroll through the new arty neighborhoods

Direction the district of Deep Ellum, today a haunt of artists and spots hooked up to party. In full rehabilitation, this former industrial district sees its warehouses transformed into bars, brasseries, concept stores or bicycle repair shops. Many works of street art also dress the walls. A place to discover urgently.
