Big, bold, and brassy, Dallas shines with the charm and glitz that you'd expect from a Texas city. You won't be out of place in your cowboy hat and boots as you chow on barbecue ribs or if you spiff up in formal wear to attend an opening at the Museum of Art. There are so many tacos to eat, horses to pet, and saloons to mosey into, that car rentals in Dallas are the only way to get around this expansive city.
Driving In and Around Dallas
Flights to Dallas touch down about 20 miles from the city center, so rental cars in Dallas can make the trip from the airport to downtown in about half an hour. You can also drive to Forth Worth, "The City of Cowboys and Culture." Stop by the Stockyards National Historic District for a taste of the Old West complete with a weekly championship rodeo, a twice-daily cattle drive, and two-stepping at the world's largest honky tonk. Then visit the Cultural District to take in masterpieces at the Kimbell Art Museum and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. For a trip back to the 19th century, head to Plano and the Heritage Farmstead, which still contains all of its original buildings. Aside from wandering a fully restored 12-room farmhouse, you can also enjoy farm animals and antique farm equipment. Come in September to marvel at the multi-colored airships that rise during the Annual Balloon Festival.
