Totally at odds with the clichés of the well-known television series, there's a lot more to Dallas than oil, Stetsons and Larry Hagman. Dallas is an ultra-modern city with a population of over 1.2million that covers an area of some 343 square kilometres, plenty of space to fit in a wealth of attractions that include fascinating historical sights, galleries and museums, amusement parks, world-class shops and restaurants as well as an abundance of parks, lakes and gardens.
Visit the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, better known as the Texas School Book Depository, the scene of the assassination of President John F Kennedy in 1963. This interesting museum takes a detailed look at the life, death and legacy of America's most famous President and is well worth a visit.
For visitors interested in culture and the arts, dance, live music and theatre can be found at venues throughout the city and there are regular exhibitions, performances and festivals throughout the year. The Dallas Art District is a superb 68-acre arts centre featuring museums, restaurants and concert halls, including the Winspear Opera House and a state-of-the-art performing arts centre, all which is helping to push Dallas to the forefront of the American arts scene.
