About Dallas

The USA’s ninth-largest city, Dallas is a burgeoning metropolis, synonymous with Texas’ legendary cowboy culture as much as its food and music. Having captured the public imagination through the classic soap opera of the same name, Dallas is a big, bold city — and a fascinating destination for business travellers, fun-loving groups or couples dreaming of chic city breaks. Accommodation options include everything from romantic mansions to pet friendly pads, luxury hotels with lavish suites and swish skyscrapers with swimming pools and all the mod-cons, fit for a whole host of tastes and budgets. Many of the best places to stay in Dallas fuse heritage architecture with cool, contemporary interiors, reflecting the vibe of a lively, modern city steeped in history.

Culture aficionados will adore the Dallas Museum of Art and the Perot Museum of Art and Science, whilst those eager to delve into Dallas’ past can look to Pioneer Park, or to Dealey Plaza & the Grassy Knoll, site of the city’s first settlement. Dallas remains linked with the 1963 assassination of President John F Kennedy for so many people — and Sixth Floor Museum, in the Texas School Book Depository, offers the chance to unravel that story.

Take a moment of reflection in Thanks-Giving Square, tour the beautiful 66-acre Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens on the shores of White Rock Lake, or take the little ones to Klyde Warren Park if you’d like to enjoy some time outdoors. Dallas’ many varied neighbourhoods are also well worth exploring on foot. Head to Deep Ellum for music, craft beers and Latin American food, or join the hipsters in the Bishop Arts District and Lower Greenville. You’ll find top-notch bars and eateries within easy reach of the best places to stay in Dallas, too.
