If you are thinking of going to America then you should definitely consider going to the Lone Star State, with a visit to Dallas being a must.
Despite Houston and San Antonio being larger cities in a population sense, Dallas compensates for it with an abundance of culture.
If you are planning on visiting Dallas, here are just some of the places you should check out.
The Dallas Cowboys are often called “America’s Team”, and their stadium is certainly befitting of that title. With a capacity of 105,000, the stadium is monstrous. The stadium is an architectural triumph, it has the world’s largest column-free interior and the fourth-largest HD video screen in the world.

All in all, this stadium is quite simply jaw-dropping. If you are lucky enough to catch a game, prepare for your eardrums to burst due to the vociferous support. Fans have had even more to cheer about this season, with the Cowboys winning games.
The Sixth Floor Museum
It was Dallas where one of the greatest American Presidents was killed. John F. Kennedy represented the “American Dream” but was gunned down in 1963 whilst his motorcade drove through the city.

Although his death remains somewhat mysterious to this day, it is widely believed that the sniper was located on the sixth floor of the Dealey Plaza Book Depository. Nowadays, this floor now serves as a museum devoted solely to the assassination of JFK. Will you be able to unearth what really happened to JFK on November 22, 1963?
Klyde Warren Park
Klyde Warren Park is the perfect place to unwind in the afternoon. With free entertainment and amenities dotted around the park, it is a fun way to relax and soak up some of that legendary Texan sun.

It must also be noted that the food trucks located within the park serve some of the best grub in the area.
Nasher Sculpture Center
With both a museum and a sculpture garden, the Nasher Sculpture Center makes for a lovely excursion. Pieces range from the standard to the extraordinary; the current piece from British sculpture Thomas Heatherwick is insane! It is all but guaranteed that you won’t leave the center disappointed.
