Deplane at Dallas Love Field and get right into exploring the city! You’ll be just six miles northwest of downtown Dallas—a quick car ride or DART trip. Dallas Area Rapid Transit has buses, light rail, and commuter rail lines throughout Dallas-Fort Worth and surrounding suburbs, so you could spend your entire visit traveling by public transit, if you’d prefer.
While you’re taking in the sights and sounds of Dallas, consider taking in some great cooking! Dallas is known for barbeque, of course, but don’t forget to try some Tex-Mex! Unlike the authentic Mexican food you can find around the city, Tex-Mex—born in the region—features familiar favorites like nachos and fajitas, and is marked by the use of shredded cheese, flour tortillas, and crunchy taco shells. Challenge yourself to a taste test, and see if you prefer Tex-Mex fare or authentic Mexican dishes—Dallas is chock-full of both neighborhood joints and Michelin-starred eateries featuring both styles.
Hungry for more than food? Dallas is home to several engaging museums and landmarks. Start in the Arts District section of downtown Dallas—the largest arts district in the U.S.—and visit the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, and the Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art. Head east to Deep Ellum and retrace the footsteps of jazz and blues performers of the 1920s and ‘30s and check out the large graffiti murals from artists of this century.
