Activities in Dallas
Glass skyscrapers, typical American street cruisers, lots of cowboy hats and the clank of spurs in the sun-drenched street canyons, Dallas couldn’t be more Texan. Not only can fans of the eponymous television series from the 1970s immerse themselves right away in the fascinating atmosphere of the city in the economic frontier between cotton plantations, oil fields and the vast prairies of West Texas.
Even younger people cannot let go of the metropolis founded on the cosmopolitan roots of German, Swiss, French and English immigrants in the field of tension between wild-west flair and modernity. Dallas is a picture-book American metropolis that literally embodies the rolling “R” and is also a place of great history. Whether it’s a JFK tour at Dealey Plaza, a culinary trip in the rustic Texan kitchen at Uptown Dallas, or strolling around the Dallas Arts District, here, real cowboys and those who want to be, feel at home here. If that’s not Texan enough for you, head to the George W. Bush Presidential Centre to follow in the footsteps of the former US president, take a trip to the oil fields or visit the Dallas Cowboys, the most popular US football team.
