Dallas will live up to all your expectations, it’s big, you will see cowboys, and they do a mean steak here at the center of cattle country. Then, when you least expect it, you will be surprised by a stunning public art installation or a world-class fine dining experience. Dallas defies easy categorization. That’s what makes it a great place to visit; from the edgy design district to the LGBT community around the Oak Lawn neighborhood, the town never ceases to surprise.
For a town so devoted to the car, it is not doing bad for parks; the stunning Klyde Warren Park is built over a freeway and links Downtown with Uptown. Some great parks and trails ring the city, including one that skirts White Rock Lake. This lake saw the tragic drowning of a young woman who haunts the lake area. She appears, sopping wet along Gaston Avenue, asking drivers for a ride home, only to disappear mid-ride, leaving only a wet patch in the car!
