The Wild West meets cosmopolitan in Texas’s second city. Forget about cowboys and pick-up trucks, in Dallas it’s all about life’s upscale pleasures. Dallas has more shopping malls per capita than any other US city, an excellent range of restaurants, and dozens of impressive art galleries and museums. If the classy nightlife and culture get a bit too much, you can indulge in a bit of good old fashioned fun at the state fair, rodeo, or Six Flags amusement park.
