Dallas is one of the most vibrant and modern cities in Texas, as well as one of the state's best vacation destinations. 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.

If you want some fresh air and a feast to the eyes, you must visit the remarkable Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, which boasts one of the best botanical collections in the entire country. And if you are after some tasty grub and good people watching, then head to Stone Street Gardens, a row of restaurants located on a charming red brick strip surrounded with tons of greenery.

Both the main train station in Dallas, the Eddie Bernice Johnson Union Station, and the main bus station are located in the heart of the city’s downtown historic district just a few blocks away from each other. That makes it super convenient to travel to Dallas from various places in Texas and the rest of the U.S. or Mexico. The stations’ central location also allows for an easy transfer to and from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport that is located pretty far outside the city.

Much more than an afterthought to nearby Dallas, Fort Worth is an exciting destination in its own right. Fort Worth is one of the largest cities in Texas and in the United States overall, because, as we all know, everything is bigger in Texas. With the motto "City of Cowboys and Culture," Fort Worth has activities, sights, and experiences to deliver on both of those fronts.

If you dressed as a cowboy for Halloween as a child (or last year), your first stop should be the Fort Worth Stockyards. Once a livestock market, the Stockyards are now a National Historic District characterized by restaurants, bars, Old-West themed shopping, and live music. Here you can see real Texas Longhorns on a cattle drive twice a day, or attend the Stockyards Championship Rodeo, held every weekend at the Cowtown Coliseum. Can you see why we named Fort Worth one of the best vacation destinations in Texas?

If you're more intrigued by Fort Worth's cultural offerings, you'll be wowed by the breadth of museums to visit. Admire the art at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth or the Kimbell Art Museum (whose architecture is a work of art in itself). Outdoor oases like the Fort Worth Botanic Garden and Fort Worth Water Gardens will bring a breath of fresh air - not to mention a chance to dip your feet in the water to cool off.

Luckily, there's no need to ride a horse into Cowtown. Bus service from several local and national carriers, as well as Amtrak train service, make it easy to get to Fort Worth from cities throughout the U.S. Plus, with proximity to one of the world's busiest airports, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, you can visit Fort Worth from nearly anywhere on the globe.
