Destination Dallas

Comments Off on Destination Dallas

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world. This fact leads one to logically conclude that Dallas gets thousands of visitors each year. If you’re a traveler who will be visiting Dallas for a few days, there are a host of things to do and see. Let’s explore some of the best activities Dallas, Texas, has to offer. 

JFK and Dallas 

If you know anything about history, you know that “JFK” and “Dallas” go hand in hand. This is because Dallas, Texas, is the site of one of the most infamous assassinations in history—that of President John F. Kennedy. Most are familiar with the events of the 

day that led to the assassination of the 35th President of the United States. If you’re one of the many followers who find themselves engrossed in this part of history (and conspiracy theories surrounding JFK’s death), you can visit the site of the tragedy. 

The sixth floor of the Texas Schoolbook Depository has been turned into a museum where visitors can be immersed in the history and legacy of the President. View a collection of items related to one of the most famous events in U.S. history. After you’ve taken in the museum, make your way outside to explore the rest of Dealey Plaza. Take a walk along the route the motorcade took that fateful day and visit the spot marked with an “x” where President Kennedy met his fate. This is an educational experience for young and old. 

AT&T Stadium Tour 

If you’re a sports fan, you’ll know that the Dallas Cowboys are a big deal in football. There are several different tour options available. You can choose from a self-guided tour, VIP tour, or the Owner’s experience. You’ll visit the most popular areas of the stadium including the locker rooms. The stadium is home to a collection of museum-quality contemporary art pieces that will delight sports fans and art enthusiasts alike. Keep your eyes peeled; you might just run into a Dallas Cowboys player or a member of the “often imitated, never duplicated” Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader team. If you’re lucky, try to visit when a home game is happening. A football game at AT&T Stadium is an experience like no other. 

The Dallas Zoo 

Everything’s bigger in Texas and the Dallas Zoo is no exception. With more than 2,000 animals, the zoo is the largest zoo in Texas. Located just three miles south of downtown Dallas, this spot is convenient to everything. Delight both kids and adults with a Virtual

Reality Gorilla experience or hop aboard the carousel. Chat with one of the zoologists and learn about the inner workings of zoo life and get an idea of what the animals are really like. If you feel like being hands on, schedule a time to feed the giraffes or a Galapagos tortoise. Catch a show featuring various wildlife such as reptiles and birds. This is sure to be a fun-filled day in Dallas. 

One of a Kind 

Dallas, Texas, is a one of a kind city with something for everyone to enjoy and explore. Travel back in time and relive history at one of the many museums, spend a day living like sports royalty at AT&T Stadium, or spend some time with the animals at the zoo. Make sure to bring along your camera—you’ll want to make sure you capture all the memories in the state that’s larger than life.
