Holidays in Dallas
Dallas holidays are an introduction to the best of Texas. Within Dallas, highlights include The John F Kennedy Museum, located near where the president was assassinated, and the Nasher Sculpture centre, containing works by Rodin, Matisse and Brancusi.
Still home to the original Neiman Marcus luxury department store, Downtown Dallas is a shopping hub for anything from designer fashion to handmade cowboy boots. Beyond Downtown’s skyscrapers are more intimate neighbourhoods, including live music and café centre Deep Ellum and the 1930s warehouse galleries of the Bishop Arts District. Nearby, Dallas’ sister city of Fort Worth rivals it for art museums and as a gateway to the American West, attracting visitors to the steak restaurants, country music venues and rodeos of its historic stockyards. The Dallas suburbs house the hair-raising Zero Gravity Thrill Rides Amusement Park and the Dallas soap opera’s Southfork Ranch, while the neighbouring college town of Denton has one of America’s best live music scenes.
