Beyond the yee-haws and cowboy hats, Dallas is prettier than anyone may think. It is known as the destination to experience some lovely scenery, the spirit of athleticism, and great food! Per capita, Dallas has the most restaurants in the US! Plus, the people in Dallas are not only good-looking, but they are simply a friendly bunch. Who doesn’t like good company right? In Dallas, there is never a dull moment and we have 4 best reasons why we say that.
1. You get a dose of fresh perspective at the Oasis-like Beck Park. Beck Park is located in the heart of downtown Dallas near the Dallas Museum of Art and Nasher Sculpture Center. It was built with Henry C. Beck, Jr. in mind, founder of Beck Construction. The park features one of the most exquisite concrete work. Each outdoor room offers its visitors a unique experience. Because of the live oaks overlooking the rooms, it’s always a good place to get refreshed. It is reflective of having quality open space in an urban environment. It’s like having pocket garden in the midst of the busy district.
2. The Music Scene makes the city come to life in Adair’s Saloon. American singer and songwriter Jimmy Baldwin once said that “Adair’s is a true Texas honky-tonk.” With so much history and famous visits by the Dixie Chicks and Don Henley, you cannot say you’ve been to Dallas without coming here. Since its opening in the year 1963, Adair’s Saloon is made up of memories of great times by the patrons themselves.
3. Get your Steak on with the best of Dallas Steakhouses. The first place to try is the see-and-be-seen spot called Nick & Sam’s Steak and Fish House. Famous celebrities and locals alike love to dine here. They have so many different cuts of steak and with their 5-star service, everything just tastes better. Their best dishes includes the bone-in prime aged sirloin and their lobster mac ‘n’ cheese. Other great steakhouses in the neighborhood include Pappas Bros. Steakhouse with their 28-day dry-aged in-house steaks; Al Biernat’s for a more romantic ambience with a lavish selection of wines; the unconventional Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse that features its signature buffalo filet mignon, rattlesnake chili pie and espresso-crusted elk tenderloin; Knife at The Highland Dallas that allows you to order larger cuts of steak for everyone to share and sample different menu items; and Dunston’s Steakhouse that is more affordable and more authentic in charm. Their bacon-wrapped filet mignon and their New York strip are bestsellers.
4. You meet some pretty awesome people in the Dallas neighborhoods. From shopping, music, art and crafted cocktails, all you have to do is pick a neighborhood and go exploring. Dallas has everything for everyone. If you would like to enjoy drinks, sports or shopping, Uptown is the neighborhood for you. It is home to Victory Park of the Dallas Mavericks. Be sure to include some shopping in your itinerary and head over to the West Village. If you want to go on an afternoon stroll, dine at top-tier restaurants and enjoy shopping in high-end stores, visit Highland Park located north of downtown. Another neighborhood to experience is Bishop Arts District. Here, everyone is free to roam. Be sure to visit The Wild Detectives bookstore; they let you order a beer with your book. For great bars, art and music venues, Deep Ellum is a must-visit. It’s the best place if you love live music. Finally, get cultured at the Design District.
