The Sixth Floor Museum chronicles the life and assassination of JFK from a historical, social, and cultural perspective. Poke through more than 90,000 artifacts and stand in front of the exact window from which Lee Harvey Oswald fired his rifle. Afterwards, head to the Grassy Knoll to see the “X” in the middle of the street where JFK was fatally shot before making your way to the John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza a few blocks away.
We're spoilt for choice when it comes to the best things to do in Dallas, also known as the Big D...with good reason. The ballooning metropolis is filled with an abundance of well, everything. When it comes to sports, tickets to a Dallas Cowboys game at the AT&T Stadium is a must, though the Dallas Mavs (basketball) and Dallas Stars (ice hockey) are too worthy of cheer over a cheesy Frito Pie. The arts scene isn't too shabby either. In fact, Dallas has an entire Arts District downtown, packed with fine art museums, performing arts venues and outdoor sculpture pieces. Arriving on an empty stomach? You've come to the right place. Dallas' restaurant scene encompasses everything from uptown glamor (think: afternoon teas, sexy rooftop bars and elevated Southern kitchens) to sauce-all-over-your-face barbecue and Tex-Mex. Disclaimer: the portions are always bigger than you think, so order accordingly.
Whatever your tastes, there's really something for everyone. So roll on over to our feast of the best things to do in Dallas right now.
