Dallas Texas is home of the Cowboys (actually Irving), the Rangers (actually Arlington), the Dallas Stars (they're in Dallas), the Dallas Mavericks, the Dallas Burn (now in Frisco) and the Dallas Desperados and six million other more important people.



Dallas was built primarily on commerce, white-collar endeavors and convention business, and has a reputation as being "less Texan" than Houston or San Antonio. If you want to see a cowboy hat, you'll have to venture into a Hispanic part of town or head to a honky-tonk (the Top Rail is recommended; it's tourist-friendly yet still authentic). Fort Worth is 30 miles away and a much better bet for "cowboy culture," albeit mostly in the form of tourist traps. Dallas is a bastion of conspicuous consumption with very little in the way of natural attractions, so it's advised that you have a credit card or plenty of cash handy to make the most of your visit. On the plus side, dining and entertainment can be had at reasonable prices compared to many large cities.

With no geographical features to limit its growth, Dallas has accrued suburban sprawl that is among the worst in North America. While some suburban locales may hold appeal for tourists -- particularly the scores of restaurants and clubs that line Belt Line Road in Addison -- these areas are, as elsewhere, bland and undistinguished. The "real Dallas" experience is to be had in the large area roughly described by the Dallas North Tollway to the west; White Rock Lake to the East; I-30 to the south; and Mockingbird Lane (or Northwest Highway, tops) to the north. (The Oak Cliff district, just southwest of downtown, is diverse ethnically, rich in seat-of-the-pants culture, and one of Dallas' more atmospheric districts, but it is also decidedly down at the heels and there are few hotels that cater to a legitimate clientele.)

Within that area, it is perfectly possible to get around on public transit, but as in any Sunbelt boomtown (think Atlanta), you're best off with a car at your disposal.
