Top Attractions for…

Dallas may be known for its party scene, mouthwatering BBQ, and diehard sports fandom, but dig a little deeper and you’ll find a diverse array of interests to pique any crowd. We’ve sorted out some of the top draws based on different pastimes and personalities.

Arts & Culture Buffs

With the largest urban arts district in the nation, the Dallas Arts District should be your first stop. From contemporary masterpieces at the Nasher Sculpture Center to breathtaking performances at the Winspear Opera House, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Don’t miss the Dallas Museum of Art, with its impressive global collection spanning 5,000 years, or the iconic geometric interior of I.M. Pei’s Meyerson Symphony Center.

History Enthusiasts

Get schooled on Dallas’ roots at the Sixth Floor Museum, chronicling the life and legacy of John F. Kennedy. The museum is located in the former Texas School Book Depository, where Lee Harvey Oswald’s sniper perch overlooked the President’s fateful motorcade route. Then explore Dallas Heritage Village – a meticulous recreation of a 19th-century pioneer town with authentic buildings, artifacts, and characters bringing the past to life.

Science & Nature Lovers

Plunge into a world of discovery at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, a cutting-edge museum packed with 11 exhibit halls including a massive dinosaur hall, an indoor nature preserve, and the Moody Family Children’s Museum. At the Dallas World Aquarium, you’ll be awestruck navigating a lush rainforest setting with exotic birds flying freely, a kaleidoscope of reef life, and a brave souls can even test their nerves on the aquarium’s Xplor! Xtreme Zone zip line.

Sports Fanatics

Sports run deep in Dallas and there’s no better way to experience it than by catching a game. The iconic AT&T Stadium in Arlington, home of the Dallas Cowboys, hosts pro football games as well as massive concerts and events like the College Football Playoff championship. Baseball fans will love taking in a Texas Rangers game at Globe Life Park. And for some indoor action, check out the Dallas Mavericks (NBA) and Dallas Stars (NHL).

Outdoor Adventurers

Beyond the neon lights of Downtown lies the surprising amount of outdoor adventure awaiting in Dallas. Grab your hiking boots and hit the trails at Cedar Ridge Nature Preserve or kayak through the wetlands of the Great Trinity Forest. Klyde Warren Park is an urban green space featuring a dog park, children’s park, games, and fun community events. For a breath of fresh air with million-dollar views, hike to the peaks of Reunion Tower or head to the newly renovated Katy Trail.

Foodies & Night Owls

Dallas has an incredible food scene that could keep your taste buds occupied for a lifetime. From award-winning BBQ joints like Pecan Lodge and Hutchins BBQ to the celebrated Mexican fare of restaurants like Javier’s and Miriam’s, Dallas delivers hard-hitting flavors worthy of its rep. Wash it all down at one of the city’s countless craft breweries like Deep Ellum Brewing Co. Then keep the night going with live music at House of Blues, slinky clubs in Uptown and Downtown, and plenty of entertainment districts waiting to be explored.

How to Get Around Dallas

With the vast distances between neighborhoods and attractions, getting around Dallas can be a daunting task for visitors. The good news is that you have plenty of options to fit your needs and budget. Public transportation via DART buses and light rail is affordable but can involve some hassle making connections. Rideshares like Uber and Lyft provide more convenience but costs can add up quickly. For an effortless way to see all that Dallas has to offer without the headaches and hidden costs, go with a private charter bus from Party Buses Dallas.

Public Transportation

Dallas’ public transit system, DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit), consists of light rail, commuter rail, and buses that can connect you between many of the city’s top areas and attractions like Downtown, Uptown, Deep Ellum, Fair Park, and the Arts District. It’s affordable, with one-way passes at $3 or a day pass for $6. However, you’ll need to consult maps, transfer between lines, and in some cases still end up taking a rideshare for that last mile to your final destination. It can get confusing navigating an unfamiliar transit system, so public transit is best for shorter point-to-point trips or if you don’t mind the occasional transfer and potential delays.

Taxis and Rideshares

Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft offer more convenience with pickup right at your doorstep and the ability to be dropped off right where you need to be. However, those individual trips can start racking up costs quickly, especially surge pricing during peak hours or events with heavy demand. Taxis can be a more affordable option for shorter rides but can also get expensive quickly over a full day or night out on the town. Plus there’s the hassle of splitting fare costs for larger groups, not to mention the reduced comfort over extended distances in a compact vehicle. It’s perfect for a night out on the town solo or with a friend but taxis and rideshares lose their luster for bigger groups looking to keep their party together.
