  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    As the corner of Texas where modernity and a sometime tragic history bang their heads, Dallas is an odd mish-mash; an exuberant and bordering on brash city self-branded as ‘The Big D’, and home to everything from a presidential assassination to a plethora of wealthy boutiques.

    If you’re a fan of history, you’ll no doubt already have debated the Book Depository vs. Grassy Knoll argument on the Kennedy Assassination. Whatever you’re conclusions, you can get a further insight within the modern day Book Depository, where you’ll find an insightful reminder of a day that changed the course of American history, when one of the most popular President’s of all time left us, soon to be followed by his brother.

    Dallas, though, has long since recovered, and these days the skyscraper-tinged modernism is so elegant that the city’s become one of the nation’s major business centres, a popular choice for everything from conferences to stylish HQs. The Bank of America and Exxon Mobil both call Dallas home, and with a modern skyline set against a backdrop of the latest in commercial fashion and plenty of hikable greenery, it’s easy to see what makes this part of Texas so liveable.

    The Museum of Art plays host to its own Monet originals, the impressive Conspiracy Museum covers everything from Oswald Bailey to Aliens via the moon landing, while the Southfork Ranch – former home of the cult TV series Dallas – brings back curious small screen memories, and is also now host to the gun used in the Kennedy assassination. If you’re a real museum buff, Fair Park hosts half a dozen of them, while there’s also an excellent aquarium and a subtropical Discovery Gardens to enjoy.

    Some argue Dallas is soulless. Given the penchant for clinical modernity, it’s even possible to see where the argument comes from, but sports, history and art lovers all beg to differ. Whatever your conclusions, Dallas sheds Texas in a different light to Houston or Austin, and for that reason alone its well worth a visit.

    • Fort Worth
      If two cities were ever more opposite it would be Fort Worth and Dallas, however together they provide the perfect combination of style and arts to please everyone. Fort Worth, also known as "Cow-Town" to the natives, is Dallas' artsy-er half. Here you will almost always find live music downtown in Sundance Square, and artists from all over the south come to set up a stand and sell their creations. The laid back culture and fairly small downtown area allows you to walk from bar to bar and sometimes you will see more people standing around outside the bars listening to the music in the streets. This is what really gives the charm to the city, and is one of the beneifts to Fort Worth that D town can't provide.

      To really experience some true Texas country, visit the Fort Worth stock yards, just watch out for the "Cow Patties," or sit on the patio at the famous Joe T. Garcia's Mexican restaurant.
      Other notables, Bass performance hall, the modern museum,the water gardens, and the Fort worth zoo that is consistently rated in the top 5 in the US.

      Dallas has many professional sports teams, but Fort Worth has it's own collection of minor league teams.

      Fort Worth is my favorite over Dallas. Dallas has traffic jams that get real bad. They have one 4 mile stretch on interstate where all the interstates combine for a large mess. One of the interstates jams up and it causes all the interstates to lock up. It seems that none of the interstates are continuous where you have to exit to another road then later exit to the same interstate. No thanks to Dallas.
      Fort Worth has less traffic, but smaller traffic to jam up for a while.
      Fort Worth is much more laid back and a better place to live.
