They say that everything is bigger and better in Texas and that couldn't be more true than in Downtown Dallas, where you can find some of the biggest and best attractions in the country.
First up is the Dallas Arts District– spanning 68 acres on the northern edge of Downtown Dallas. Here, you'll find the Dallas Museum of Art, one of the nation's top art museums, the Nasher Sculpture Center, home to one of the world's finest contemporary sculpture collections, and the Meyerson Symphony Center, one of the world's finest orchestra halls. Also located in the district is the Crow Collection of Asian Art, featuring one of the most exquisite jade collections in the United States.
Situated across from the district is the award-winning Klyde Warren Park, a 5-acre oasis perched atop a sunken freeway.
At the opposite end of the park is the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, an architectural gem featuring five floors of mind-blowing exhibit halls.
In the Historic West End, you'll find the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza chronicling the assassination and legacy of President John F. Kennedy.
And a visit to Dallas isn't complete without a trip up to Reunion Tower's GeO-Deck for a birds-eye view of the skyline that USA Today 10Best named the best in the world.
