Explore the skyscraping city of Dallas and its more low-key, but no less intriguing city of Fort Worth.
Dallas is the city most people call to mind when they think of Texas, despite it being neither the capital, not the largest city. Located in the north of the state, its downtown area is awash with sparkling skyscrapers, home to commercial and financial heavyweights alike, while quaint neighbourhoods such as Deep Ellum and the Bishop Arts District offer a vibrant live music scene and superb shopping. Don't miss the iconic Reunion Tower, the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, and the Dallas Arts District. For a true taste of Texas, enjoy lunch like a local at Klyde Warren Park’s daily food trucks and join fans as they celebrate the achievements of the city's five professional sports teams.
>Often referred to as the place 'where the West begins', Fort Worth is 30 minutes outside of Dallas. The City of Cowboys and Culture welcomes visitors from around the world to experience the great American West and the rich arts and culinary treasures associated with it. Offering the world’s only twice-daily cattle drive, a year-round rodeo, the world’s largest honky-tonk and an array of museums (don't miss the Kimbell Art Museum, home to the only Michelangelo in the Americas), there is no shortage of culture to sample. The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame is well worth a visit, while Sundance Square, the heart of downtown Fort Worth, is home to 35 blocks of walkable shopping, dining and lively entertainment. For those with a taste for real ale, the Fort Worth Ale Trail will guide you through the city’s nine breweries. The Stockyards Adventure Pass is an enjoyable experience for all ages, as you take you on a journey through the city’s wild west past.
