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.
