As proof that Dallasites aren’t all about the carnivore life, this downtown market has been peddling farm-fresh veggies, dairy, and more since 1941. What started as a small horse-and-wagon wholesale market is now a 26,000-square-foot hall...

Philip Johnson's simple concrete memorial to the late president is controversial in the very face of that simplicity, but I found it to be a fitting, moving tribute. The open tomb, known as a cenotaph, is an ode to JFK's free spirit. Nothing wrong...

When President John F. Kennedy was shot in Dallas in November 1963, the world was introduced to the Texas School Book Depository building, which became the primary crime scene for the assassination. It was from a sixth-floor window in this brick...

With my Pilot Point "family," ventured to downtown Dallas on a Sunday afternoon. It was here on this stretch of Elm Street at 12:30pm on November 22, 1963 that 35th President of the United States, John F, Kennedy, was assassinated while in his...

Everything really is bigger, and fried, at the Fair Grounds. The Texas State Fair is not to be missed in Dallas from September through October. Be sure to wave to Big Tex, ride the Texas Star ferris wheel and try something fried. Also make sure to...

Granada opened as a movie theater in the 1940s, and later became a concert hall—my favorite live music venue, in fact. Check out their lineup, as big names, as well as local acts, are always on stage here—fun times to be had!
3921 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Dallas, TX 75210, USA
Around late September through October. Definitely come hungry (without regard to your waistline). Try a turkey leg, corn dog, cotton candy and/or every fried food imaginable and be prepared to spend lots of money. This is worth it though...at...
Deep Ellum, Dallas, TX, USA
One of Dallas’s earliest neighborhoods, this formerly industrial area just east of downtown has a long history as an entertainment hub, from its days as a hotbed of blues and jazz clubs in the 1920s, to the 1980s, when local bands like the...
1428 Young St, Dallas, TX 75202, USA
Amongst the buildings and cityscape, rests a group of gentle, metal, giants frozen in time. When you're driving through Dallas, you don't expect to catch a glimpse of about fifty massive cow statues, but that's exactly what you'll find. Located...

We headed out to Deep Ellum Brewing Co for their Saturday tour. Deep Ellum was the first microbrewery in Dallas when they opened in 2011. Of course the local craft beer scene has expanded since then. For a small fee you get a glass and a...

In the mood for an outdoor yoga session, concert, or movie, a scenic run, or just some time with nature in the midst of the urban sprawl? Head to this 5.2-acre green space, which hangs like a deck over the recessed Woodall Rodgers Freeway, between...
Dallas, TX, USA
In my drive over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge I was taken back by the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge's beauty which only seem to get more mesmerizing each time I drove over it. Dallas is not a pedestrian city so I'm not sure you can walk over it but...
2001 Flora St, Dallas, TX 75201, USA
It seems wrong to call this Renzo Piano–designed complex a museum—it’s more like a “sculpture safari,” on which you get to experience the pieces in their intended habitat. Opened in 2003, the Nasher Sculpture Center...
2713 Commerce St, Dallas, TX 75226, USA
I'm so glad Deep Ellum in Dallas is coming back. There was a while there I mourned the loss of this edgier, no frills part of Dallas. Try Uncle Uber's for what I consider a good feel place of a truly unique part of "Big D"...and delicious...
300 Reunion Blvd E, Dallas, TX 75207, USA
Though Dallas’s downtown skyline has evolved over the last decades, as more gleaming, angular towers have been added to the mix, you’ll still always know you’re looking at the Big D thanks to one iconic structure. Dubbed The...

If you're a fan of the European experience when it comes to your morning coffee, look no further than Davis Street Espresso in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas. Closed Sundays and open Monday through Friday from 6 am to 2pm and Saturday from 7...

Ronald Kirk Pedestrian Bridge, Dallas, TX 75207, USA
The Downtown Dallas skyline is beautiful, and there's no better way to see it than from the Continental Ave Pedestrian Bridge. On the pedestrian bridge you can stroll along the walkway, sample food from street vendors. Or if you're in the mood for...

Want a fun and unique day/night in Dallas? After a wonderful brunch/lunch next door at Smoke, rent a room at the "old school" Belmont Hotel and laze the day away overlooking the Dallas skyline from the pool. Uber to FT33 for a fantastic dinner....

The Old Monk is a popular Dallas pub with an excellent beer list and an eclectic pub grub menu. Old Monk also hosts numerous tap takeover events throughout the year, and I hear their Oktoberfest bash is a big one. The steamed mussels are a...

In 2013, Jason Boso, the founder of the popular Twisted Root burger joints, felt the city was lacking a bar where he could feel equally comfortable taking his dad for a beer, hanging out with his buddies at night, and treating his wife to...

what's better than perfectly fried chicken in an outdoor setting underneath the texas sky? probably not much. until you throw in a great bar, live music, fire pits, and a pretty killer design. this is exactly the mix achieved in dallas at the...
