Dallas is one of the most vibrant and modern cities in Texas. While it is one of the foremost business, telecommunications and transportation hubs in the United States, Dallas is also one of the most exciting cities when it comes to culture and nightlife opportunities.

When you are planning a trip to Dallas, make sure you leave time in your schedule to check out some of the city’s world-famous museums. Some must-visits include The Sixth Floor Museum (that commemorates the assassination of John F. Kennedy), the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.
