Unexpected Brilliance in Dallas

Dallas Skyline
Dallas is known to be a big city with a big heart, filled to the brim with football fans, boot wearing cowboys and plenty of oil fields.  Although this may be true, to think this Texas city is just a cliche would greatly underestimate its true potential.  Dallas is also the site for some stunning architectural wonders, great restaurants and diners and some fabulous shopping.  Visit Dallas and experience a city that will delight and inspire.
Historic Neiman Marcus
As you glance at the Dallas skyline, it will be hard to miss the Reunion Tower.  The amazing structure was built in 1978 and today still stands tall.  Head to the top and view the entire city from the observation deck or grab a bite to eat at the rotating restaurant at the tower's peak.  The Reunion Tower has quickly become synonymous with Dallas, but there are so many other fabulous architectural landmarks situated here.  The flagship store for Neiman Marcus was opened in Dallas in 1907.  This luxury department store has reached historic landmark status because of its impressive past.  This striking building and the upscale merchandise sold inside promises customers a profound shopping experience.  Go from luxurious to large when discussing the next landmark in Dallas, the Big Tex statue.  This 52 foot cowboy calls the state fair grounds home and towers over the site.  Some may find this metal man a bit gaudy, but he has become quite famous and now claims to be one of the most popular landmarks in all of Dallas. 

As everyone knows, everything is bigger in Texas.  This may be especially true when discussing the restaurant scene in this urban oasis.  Dallas has a higher density of restaurants than New York City, making it a real food-lover's paradise.  Pre-conceived ideas of this Texas town may bring on the cravings of steakhouses and BBQ joints, but don't sell this city short.  Dallas also likes to showoff its trendy side.  Contemporary restaurants and gifted chefs have taken to Texas and created blends of cultural flavors from all around the world.  American, Asian, Italian and Mexican styles have been found on the local menus and tempt diners to try something truly fantastic.   Find amazing food choices throughout the city from the high-end boutique style restaurants to the quaint local grills and cafes.  Even greasy spoon diners offer up selections that will make your mouth water.  Foodies unite in delicious Dallas.
The city of Dallas is known for its affluence.  Oil tycoons, cattle farmers, bankers and businessmen have flocked here and made their fortunes.  With wealth comes shopping and Dallas does not disappoint.  This boisterous city features fashionable destinations for shopping all over the metro area.  Shop in the trendy Galleria or Northpark Center where the environment and the shops all impress.  Fetch the perfect pair of shoes while experiencing a historical vibe at Neiman Marcus built in 1907 or Highland Park Village built in 1931.  Highland Park Village was even the first outdoor mall in the nation.  Stroll through the West Village and take in the sites of the outdoor restaurants and classy boutiques, all showcasing an uptown feel.  If you are in search of the latest and greatest trends, look no further then the Dallas shopping scene.
