Big D

One of the country's most popular shopping destinations, Dallas and its sprawling suburbs include more shopping centers per capita than any other urban center in America.
Venture out of the city with trips to North Richland Hills Centre (in North Richland Hills), Randol Mill Park (in Arlington) and Fort Worth (Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Kimbell Art Museum, &more). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Top O'Hill Terrace, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cistercian Abbey, see the interesting displays at The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, and head outdoors with North Texas Lake Charters.
