Dallas is undeniably sophisticated, and a perfect getaway for couples looking for destination dining, haute shopping and incredible arts and architecture. Stay at Hotel ZaZa a 153-room hotel with 18 concept suites; the best to book is the Out of Africa room for its exotic animal busts and tribal masks. You can also get cozy at The Joule a former bank with fresh interiors by Adam Tihany, and a $22 million art collection. Stop by the Mansion On Turtle Creek’s handsome bar—leather-walled and lined with old tomes—to sip an Old Fashioned or take your drink outside and grab a seat by one of the outdoor fireplaces. Or make reservations at the Mansion Restaurant where top dishes include the tortilla soup, a menu staple since the dining room opened over 30 years ago.
