Dallas - Fort Worth

Best Things to Do in Dallas - Fort Worth

If you only have a day or two, you will have to choose whether you want the Dallas or the Fort Worth experience: The sheer distance (and traffic) between the top things to do will force you to be selective. However, taking three days to a week to explore both will expose you to the metroplex's true nature. Families will enjoy a day at the Dallas World Aquarium or a traditional honky-tonk like Billy Bob's Texas; art lovers will love the Dallas Arts District; and sports fans will visit the Cowboys Stadium for a game. To cap off a great visit, head to the Deep Ellum district for a night out.
