The fourth-largest metropolitan area in the U.S., there's much more to Dallas than big hair and J.R. Ewing-styled oil barons. Visitors to the Big D are often surprised to learn that it is home to more restaurants per capita than New York City, including a battalion of celebrity-chef establishments. It is also a magnet for international arts connoisseurs, with the largest urban Arts District in the U.S. And this is the city that has elevated shopping to an art, where shopaholics get dressed up to go to its plethora of boutiques and high-end stores like Barney's and Neiman-Marcus.
But in Dallas, the passion for sports also runs deep. The city hosts teams from five major professional sports leagues - including the Cowboys, one of the most recognizable and successful franchises in the world, playing at the new Cowboys Stadium - along with the NBA's Mavericks, the MLB's Rangers, the NHL's Stars and Major League Soccer's FC Dallas. Fans extend the love to Dallas' plethora of amateur and collegiate teams.
Tourists will find that the city is home to a surprising array of eclectic and luxury hotels. To make the most of your visit, check the online Dallas Observer, a handy source of information on music, bars, nightlife and events in Dallas. Another good source is the Sunday entertainment section in the city's daily newspaper, The Dallas Morning News.
