Dallas

Made to be the land of really big everything; Dallas, Texas is a hugely popular southern tourist destination complete with world-class shopping, dining options and attractions. Though big hair, hats and hospitality is still the name of the game, the city has become a fast-growing hotspot for nightlife and the arts. With 24 area businesses (Exxon Mobil, JC Penny) named as Fortune 500 companies, Dallas is a growing regional hub for business and commerce. Whether visiting a rough and tumble rodeo or sitting down to a southern-style heaping meal of BBQ brisket, Dallas knows big fun.

What Dallas may lack in natural beauty, it makes up for with entertaining and educational sights and attractions. The Dallas Museum of Art showcases a world tour of fine and decorative arts. With Dallas forever being remembered as the place of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, American history buffs might want to check out the Sixth Floor Museum. Housed in the old schoolbook depository, where Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly shot and killed President Kennedy, visitors can tour the now renovated museum, learn the facts about the case and even peer out of that infamous sixth-story window out on to Dealey Plaza’s grassy knoll. For an adult’s night out, grab a cocktail and check out the Dallas House of Blues.

The city has several districts to choose from when seeking out a hotel. The Hotel Belmont is a unique mid-priced artsy-retro stay in the Oakcliff area of town. With unbeatable views of the Dallas skyline and internationally-inspired tile work, this funky hotel is worth a try. For a more sweeping, Texas-style hotel, check out the Mansion on Turtle Creek. A stay in this luxury villa will feel like old world Texas with modern amenities and accommodations. For a high end treat-yourself kind of stay; try the Stoneleigh Hotel and Spa with its opulent accents and uptown city views.
