Things to do In Dallas

  • Visit the Sixth Floor Museum–  It’s full of history and well worth a visit, especially if you purchase a Dallas CityPass, as the museum is one of the sights that is included.
  • Dealey Plaza- Located just outside of The Sixth Floor Museum, Dealey Plaza is the location of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.  Consider taking the JFK Assassination and Museum Tour for a first-hand experience from a local guide.  This is a must for history buffs.
  • Walk the beautiful gardens of the Dallas Arboretum.  Choose admission to the Arboretum or the George W. Bush Library as part of your Dallas CityPass.

  • While at the Arboretum, partake in afternoon tea at the historic DeGoyler House.
  • Get hands on with exhibits at The Perot Museum.   Your Dallas CityPass includes admission to The Perot and is a great way to save money if you are visiting several attractions in Dallas.
  • You will find way more than books at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum.  Inside you will find a full-size replica of the Oval Office, the original White House Situation Room, and the “Nation Under Attack” exhibit displaying items from the September 11th terroristic attacks. You can choose the George W. Bush Library or The Dallas Arboretum as part of your Dallas CityPass. 
  • The Dallas Museum of Art.   I told you everything is bigger in Texas, and this museum lives up to that motto.  With over 159,000 square feet of exhibit space, the Dallas Museum of Art is one of the largest museums in the United States.
  • Learn the history and culture of Dallas at The Old Red Museum.
  • Take a step back into a historical village at the Dallas Heritage Village.

  4. I used to visit Dallas all the time as I had a good friend there, but I only ever saw her house and Costco! OK, we did go to SouthFork once. Obviously, I need to go back and do some stuff on this list!

  7. I live in DFW right now and I can’t believe that I’ve actually done most of these (this is what happens when you are a bored college student) over the past year. I did not know that you could tour the Mary Kay building though (I’ve passed by it a bunch of times and never even considered the possibility of entering it)! That sounds absolutely awesome! 🙂

    • I know, Anshula! They have a museum inside! There is so much great stuff to do in our area. I could have made it 1,001 things if I had time. LOL.

  8. Great job on the list. I grew in Dallas and visit frequently so I am going to use this list to plan future trips.

    Some of my favorites on the list are the Sixth Floor Museum, DMA, and Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth.

  10. I didn’t know they had Dallas wine tours! I’d love that. Where is a great place to get BBQ?

    Reply
    • Yes, Maggie. We really have some great Texas wineries in this area. And there are so many good places to get BBQ. In Dallas, Mike Anderson’s BBQ is really good and in Fort Worth, I personally love the Woodshed. BBQ is very competitive in this areas, so if you start asking around, you’ll get tons of different favorites. Rudy’s Country Store is also pretty popular. I know it’s a chain restaurant but it’s still good. LOL!

  11. National Cowgirl Museum, never heard of that, I should give a try. Maybe to dress like a cowgirl or it’s too much)) Anyway, thanks for tips!

    Reply
    • You can definitely dress like a cowgirl anywhere in Fort Worth, you won’t be the only one. LOL!

  12. I’ve never been to Texas but this list is insane! I will def be trying to use city pass when I visit different places, they are such a good deal. I love the big ferris wheels! Im surprised we dont have one in NY

    Reply
    • Thank you! I’m surprised that NY doesn’t have a big ferris wheel as well, they seem to be very popular!
