|About these ratings|
If there's one thing the people of Dallas and Fort Worth love, it's football. So a stop by the home of the Dallas Cowboys is necessary for a true glimpse into the area's culture. The Cowboys' former kingdom in Irving was demolished in 2009 to make way for a bigger, better venue. Now you can visit "America's Team" at AT&T Stadium. The largest domed stadium in the country with capacity for 80,000 screaming fans is located in Arlington, Texas, and approximately halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth.
Even if you're not interested in seeing a game, you might still want to take a tour of this venue, which also houses an extensive collection of art. In fact, there's a guided tour specifically devoted to the stadium's artwork. But recent visitors say that avid sports fans should tag along on the VIP tour, which leads attendeads through the private suites, the press box, the locker rooms and even out onto the field.
If you do decide to go to a game, prepare for steep ticket prices. To save a buck or two, purchase your seats well in advance, or opt for Party Pass tickets — though Party Passes are valid for standing room only, they start at $29 a piece. Art tours cost around $24, while VIP tours cost $27.50 for adults and $22.50 for children and seniors; you can also choose to take a self-guided tour for $17.50 for adults and $14.50 for kids and seniors, though you won't have access to as much of the stadium. Tour times vary depending on the season and the game schedule. To get to AT&T Stadium, you're going to need a car: I-30 passes right by. To learn more, visit AT&T Stadium's website.
