Big hair, scandal, and flashy spending are lingering impressions of this Texan city left over from the 1980s TV show. In reality, Dallas does offer loads of shopping and you can certainly see the upper crust at play uptown and on McKinney Ave. Delving a bit deeper than the stereotypes, you’ll find opportunities to take in a rodeo, golf, ride the roller coasters at Six Flags Texas, take in a Dallas Cowboys football game, or arrive in autumn to explore the Texas State Fair, second largest in the nation. The supposedly haunted park White Rock Lake is also just outside of town and lovely for walking in, assuming you’re not flustered by the possibility of a supernatural encounter. Deep Ellum (for hipsters) and downtown (for whoever) is where the ... Read more
best nightlife is found.
Dallas’ summers are oppressively muggy and not ideal for doing sightseeing outdoors. Winters are cold and it does snow a few days a year, but if you are coming from a part of the world that has a “real” winter, the daytime highs in the 50s (10°-15°C) will appear pretty tolerable. The most celebrated seasons in this town, and the ones with the most visitors, are spring and fall, when the weather is pleasant. Football season from late August through December also gives the city an extra air of excitement -- and a whiff of beer breath.

One would point out that getting a point-of-sale (POS) system will be a waste of time and cash. In fact, moving to some quality POS has definitely a lot of advantages.

Food allergies may lead to various problems in a person. These complications should be addressed before they turn severe. These allergies usually take place mostly in a span of a few hours immediately after somebody eats a food in which initiates an allergic response. A lot of people are unaware that they're experiencing a food allergy unless they encounter allergy food symptoms. These types of allergy food symptoms are generally plenty and can irritate many people.

Dallas is a great city for foodies and historians alike. The Arts District is the largest in the country and is so amazing!

Dallas is a big city but it doesn't feel cosmopolitan nor does it feel alive. Maybe because the city is so big and everything is so sprawled out?

Austin, Texas

A great place to have grown up, and a very metropolitan city. The suburbs extend for days, and the downtown corridor is rapidly changing with more people moving closer in.

I lived here for 7 months and wish I had stuck it out a bit more. It is a big city! Things are also far apart so you will do a lot of driving. Traffic on the freeway around traffic hour can be bumper to bumper. Stay at a hotel close to the Grapevine area where there is that big indoor Outlet Mall or in the downtown area so you don't feel like you are so faraway from everything. The people here are really nice and will open doors for the ladies.

Dallas is an amazingly young and rapidly growing city. Just like everything in Texas, Dallas feels huge and unique. It is hard to find a "bad" part of Dallas, as most of the city and surrounds sports an "oil money" vibe. There are numerous areas around the city that are great for going out to eat or drink.

After a few years of somehow dodging the snobby top 10, Big D reminds readers what old-school attitude is about: this is a city where right-of-way is determined by blue-book value, and the stereotypically well-coiffed locals struck readers as the opposite of quirky. Staying at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, or shopping at NorthPark’s Neiman-Marcus have long been hallmarks of good Dallas living. The new generation of Ewings might also be found at downtown boutique hotel The Joule, which just got three new penthouse suites, a tasteful Taschen library that does a weekly champagne afternoon tea, and Texas’s first imported-from-Europe ESPA spa. Readers gave Dallas credit for backing up its attitude with world-class museums and theaters, including the Rem Koolhaas-designed Wyly Theatre.

Everything is bigger in Texas, and hotter. Great sports town, good BBQ, and American history places of interest.
