The Texas city of Dallas may be famous for the TV show of the same name, but there is much more to explore in this modern city. The John F. Kennedy Museum showcases the life of the President who was assassinated in Dallas, whilst culture buffs will enjoy gazing at stunning works by Matisse, Brancusi and Rodin at the Nasher Sculpture Centre and the galleries of the Bishop Arts District. Music fans will also be able to take in a wide selection of bands in the Deep Ellum area.
Shoppers can browse the wares at the original home of world-famous department store Neiman Marcus and even try and track down a pair of Texan-style cowboy boots as a souvenir to take home from one of the designer shops located in downtown Dallas.
A little further afield, the Zero Gravity Thrill Rides Amusement Park promises exciting thrills, whilst nearby Denton has a thriving college music scene. Close to Dallas, Fort Worth also offers an arts scene to rival that of its larger neighbour with steakhouses, rodeos and country music venues offering an authentic slice of the American south.
