    Dallas World Aquarium

    29 reviews

    This is a great place to visit in the Texas hot summer months. A beautifully designed place with gorgeous water features and interesting combination of animals.

    Dallas Museum of Art

    13 reviews

    The art doesn't go home, so why should you? What a great catch phrase for Late Night at the DMA. It happens the third Friday of every month from six to midnight. Last month I was joined by two to three hundred families and their friends to throw our blankets on the sculpture-filled courtyard of the museum, listen to some ...

    Voodoo Chile

    2 reviews

    If you're interested in something truly and genuinely unique, then you absolutely must visit this place. It's something like a gift shop, a museum, an art gallery, a time capsule, and a head shop all rolled into one little joint. Owned (operated? curated? birthed?) by a legitimately groovy Japanese guy named Jimi, it is basically a small house that has ...

    Winspear Opera House

    2 reviews

    I was a total goober and took the opera house tour when it was available, and I have to say I was blown away at how high tech the place is. Of course it’s pretty, though not overly ornate, but the fact that the ceiling can be raised and lowered for acoustic quality of smaller versus larger performances is just ...

    The Bishop Arts District

    5 reviews

    This area of Dallas used to be termed the ‘bad neighborhood.’ But don’t believe that anymore. You absolutely must take a look at this thriving artsy district of Dallas. It must be noted that this is one of the most walkable areas of Dallas, so get ready to window shop and stroll. I found Japanese restaurants, Spanish bookstores/wine cafes, bicycle ...

    Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden

    19 reviews

    The 66-acre gem is located on the shores of White Rock Lake, on the land of an estate with 21,000 square feet! A lot of dedication and love was put into making this garden a reality, and it shows. The McCasland Sunken Garden feels like you’ve stepped out the back door of an Italian estate. The Fern Dell has a ...

    This small museum has great collections and a free shuttle at the museum's front door can take you to several locations in the area to grab a bite to eat, go window shopping, visit other museum of go to the movies. A good way to spend an entire day without having a car!

    Deep Ellum

    19 reviews

    Good for nightlife, but also good to roam around during the day. You'll find the best looking vine walls with chipped paint ever! :)

    Dallas Arts District

    11 reviews

    he candy-apple red Winspear Opera House designed by Norman Foster and Rem Koolhaas’s 12-story-tall Wyly Theatre joined I. M. Pei’s Meyerson Symphony Center and Renzo Piano’s Nasher Sculpture Center to create a cultural nexus worthy of Dallas’s bravado. At the Dallas Museum of Art, take a smartphone tour of the permanent collections, which include African headwear, paintings by Texas artists, ...

    The best indoor shopping place in all of Dallas. It has big brand name stores like Omega,Burberry and Carolina Herrera just to name a few. Of course, it also has stores for those that are on a budget like PacSun,Aeropostale and Hollister. There is a clean and not so crowded AMC theater with a bar to grab a drink before ...

    Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art

    2 reviews

    #BeOut Right in the Arts District like the DMA and the Nasher Sculpture Center, this museum is dedicated to the arts and cultures of China, Japan, India, and Southeast Asia, and admission is free! We also suggest checking out the nearby Winspear Opera House – while we (embarrassingly) have trouble staying awake during operas, that doesn’t stop us from admiring ...

    Not sure of the price because I went during a school trip. Not as great as the DMA but, I assume great for art/ sculpture fans.

    Reunion Tower

    14 reviews

    The coolest thing about Reunion Tower is that to get to it, you have to use the downtown Dallas' underground walkways - they're surprisingly extensive. At 561 feet, the tower is the 15th tallest in Texas and now hosts a Wolfgang Puck restaurant at the top called 56 (in reference to the tower's height, naturally).

    Perot Museum of Nature and Science

    15 reviews

    Science! Nature! Architecture! If those three words don't convince you to visit, then maybe these eighty or so words will. This is a great place to bring any size group, especially children. But it's not just a place for kids. There are certain evenings when it's 21 and up only. They have alcohol and encourage the adults to enjoy the ...

    Galleria Dallas

    42 reviews

    This is one big mall. Galleria Dallas offers everything from an ice skating rink to stores as uncommon in most places as Zara. The food court offers all types of food, my favorite being the French bistro at the bottom. It's also connected to several hotels and a parking garage so large it sent chills down my spine.

    The Sixth Floor Museum

    27 reviews

    One of the saddest places I've ever visited. The former Texas Book Depository Building right on Dealey Plaza. President John F. Kennedy was in his motorcade coming around the bend on Dealey Plaza when shots rang out from this building and President Kennedy was killed.

    American Airlines Center

    20 reviews

    The American Airlines center is a really nice sports/concert venue. It's huge! It's also a great place to see a show/event without having to melt in the hot summer heat.

    This is a great place for all ages. There is plenty of space to hike and bike around the trail, as well as enjoy the beauty of this outdoor landmark.
