The Big ‘D’, America’s ninth-largest city, Dallas, is a place we all feel we know. This is partly
due to the eponymous TV series, partly to its place in American history as the site of JF
Kennedy’s assassination, and partly because it embraces much of how we popularly see
America: skyscrapers, shopping and cowboys. You'll also find great food and great football - it's home to the Cowboys team and their cheerleaders. Our guide to the best places to stay In Dallas lets you plan your stay so, whatever you fancy doing, you will find a hotel that suits.
The city combines a glittering, glassy, skyscraper architecture - best seen from the Reunion
Tower’s GeO-Deck observation platform in the Central Business District - with less showy
places such as the ultra-hip Deep Ellum neighbourhood with its rootsy music, craft beers and
Latin-American food scene. Dining out in Dallas is one of the city’s big draws whether you
want barbecued spare ribs, spicy Mexican, pizzas, steaks, old-fashioned burgers, smart
French or to dine in an upscale oyster bar.
One of the city’s most evocative museums is the Sixth Floor Museum, a memorial to
President John F Kennedy's assassination. Many of the galleries and museums are in the
huge 68-acre Arts District. The Dallas Museum of Art has works by Edward Hopper, Rodin
and Winston Churchill. Visit on Thursday night and you’ll find live jazz in the atrium. For
modern art, head to the Nasher Sculpture Center with works by Calder, de Kooning and
Miró. Its sculpture garden is one of the best in the country. The Arts District is also where
you’ll find some of the city’s best ballet, music, opera, dance, cabaret.
Want to let your hair down? Head to River Ranch at Texas Horse Park and go on a horse
trail ride led by real Texan cowboys. And when it comes to shopping, Dallas doesn't disappoint with more malls per capita than anywhere else in the US. So, decide what should be on your tick-list and use our choice of the best places to stay in Dallas to plan your stay.
