Introducing Dallas

The ‘Big D’ doesn’t get a look in when it comes to the ‘best of’ city stakes, but Dallas is more than cowboys, cheerleaders, oil barons, BBQ, and the place where JFK was shot. Over recent years, the city has been betting the ranch to become a world-class city brimming with cosmopolitan verve. The oil rich capital of The Lone Star State boasts some of the best museums in the country, a dining scene that is as innovative as it is upscale, and a fertile, underground fashion and music scene that is keeping the East Coast’s trendsetters on their toes. The once down-at-heel Cedar Springs neighborhood has rebounded with a creative vigor that is revealed in an eclectic array of nightclubs, boutiques, galleries, and casual restaurants. For the tourist box tickers out there, Dallas supplies a pleasing laundry list of attractions. Historians will gravitate towards the memorials to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, while culture vultures flock to the monumental 68-acre Arts District, home to the superb Dallas Center for the Performing Arts. The collection of 20th-century Spanish art at the Meadows Museum of Art is sublime, featuring works by Velazquez, Goya, Ribera, Murillo, Zurbaran, Picasso, Dali, and Miró. But, as clichés would have it, sport and shopping are the twin religions in Texas; the Dallas Cowboys with their ultra high-tech new stadium are the state’s premier attraction, and, according to Dallas’ Tourist Board, there are more stores per capita in Dallas than in any other U.S. city.
