Located in the centre of the Lone Star State, Texas, Dallas is one of America’s largest cities and has enough cool happenings for everyone to find their niche. If you’re heading to the city, take advantage of our #innsider knowledge to explore the best Dallas has to offer, but maybe not quite what you’d imagine…

Classical Sounds

Designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect I.M. Pei and situated in the centre of the city’s arts district, the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Centre is not the first place most travel guides would recommend visiting on a trip to Dallas, yet this impressive architectural building is home to one of the world’s leading orchestras, The Dallas Symphony Orchestra. With regular concerts of varying music styles and home to many significant pieces of American art, the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Centre is well worth a visit for any budding culture vultures.

Extremeeee

If kicking back to classical music is not your vibe, then Zero Gravity will be right up your street. The extreme amusement park within the centre of the Dallas is host to some of the most exciting, adrenaline-bursting and terrifying activities the U.S. can offer! If you dare, take a ride on the ‘Skycoaster’ and be shot 110 feet in the air at 60mph. If that doesn’t sound shocking enough, how about a ‘Nothin’ but Net’ which involves a 130 foot drop with no parachutes, ropes or straps, just a safety net awaiting you at the bottom! #Innsiders should see some of these extreme videos showcasing the park’s wild attractions before taking the plunge!

Natural Beauty

Whilst extreme sports is an acquired taste, unwinding amongst some of Dallas’ amazing natural beauty is a must for #innsiders and White Rock Lake Park is the perfect location. Situated in the north eastern section of the city, the lake and park hosts numerous boat trips, kayak rental and walking trails to take in the spectacular views of the water and cityscape. The park is popular with the locals, which is always a good indicator of a destination’s best offerings, so make sure you sample White Rock Lake Park.

Silver Screen

For film fanatics, try out a new hangout spot at Angelika Film Center & Café in Mockingbird Station Mall to see some of the best and most current art-house and indie films. There is an awesome availability of unusual films you can’t catch anywhere else and the café is frequented by some of the city’s coolest cats. #innsiders can also check out the great bars and restaurants right next door to continue the fun!

Cowboys

No visit to Dallas would be complete without taking in a National Football League game at the AT&T Stadium to see the mighty Dallas Cowboys. One of the most successful teams in the NFL, ‘Big D’ offers one of the best sporting atmospheres found in the U.S. and gives a once in a lifetime experience for even the least sporty amongst us! Tickets can be bought directly from the stadium, located in Dallas’ suburb, Arlington, or via the official website www.dallascowboys.com. The regular season takes place September – February, but there is many friendly matches to see from July. Prices can range from $80 – $1,000 per ticket.

If you’re paying Dallas a visit, then head to Park Inn by Radisson Dallas-Love Field, positioned in the heart of the city and just a short bus journey to the airport. With 296 rooms, swimming pool, fitness and gym facilities, meeting rooms and an on-site restaurant, the hotel offers a great base for #innsiders exploring Dallas’ delights.
