Football cheerleaders. Long-running television shows. Oil derricks and cacti. Such subjects spring to mind when thinking about Dallas, Texas, one of the largest cities in a legendarily big state. But quirky regional charms aren't the only reasons to see if there are any vacancies in downtown Dallas hotels. The city boasts stupendous shopping, wonderful dining, and a blossoming cultural scene.
Once your Dallas flight has landed, be sure to orient yourself: The Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex is massive, and downtown Dallas is a dense, urban city center with plenty to see and do. Although you might not expect it, you can find substantial green space around hotels in downtown Dallas. Klyde Warren Park has a children's area, places to play croquet and ping pong, and a putting green, while Main Street Garden Park combines a grassy swathe with cafes, toddler play areas, and free Wi-Fi. Engage in a little art appreciation on the Public Art Walk Dallas, a 3.3-mile, self-guided tour of downtown's art and architecture that starts at 2001 Flora Street. You can also relive some infamous history at the Sixth Floor Museum and peer out of the very window through which Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK. Yearning to shop? Dallas has more malls per capita than any other place in the United States, and a 15-minute drive north will get you to Highland Park, a ritzy district with fantastic boutiques that's dubbed the Beverly Hills of Texas. And if you're hungry, Dallas has got you covered. Your hotel near downtown Dallas is more likely than not a stone's throw from sushi, French cuisine, Mexican food, and pub grub. Cruise Elm Street, Main Street, and Commerce Street for the best selection.
