The old saying goes that everything's bigger in Texas, and Dallas, the state’s largest city is certainly a testament to that. The Arts District is among the largest in the United States, with so much to see and do, from opera and theatre to live music and an incredible collection art.
Also well worth a visit is Victory Park, a major events centre for the city, where big names in entertainment routinely play in its world-class arena.
Dallas hosts the Texas State Fair annually, the largest event of its kind in the country. The State Fair includes an annual food creation competition, with previous winners running from the ingenious (‘Deep-Fried Breakfast-for-dinner”) to the downright odd (“deep fried beer”). Only in America!
It is also home to some sobering history, including Dealey Plaza, the site of President John F. Kennedy’s death in 1963. At that site, the Sixth Floor Museum chronicles the events that changed the nation, and is a must-see for history buffs.
