Dallas is the third-largest city in Texas, after Houston and San Antonio. With 6.1 million people, it is the fourth-largest metropolitan area in the United States.
Autumn marks a sweet spot for Dallas tourism, with temperatures dropping into the 70s and 80s. There are various outdoor events to make the most of the pleasant weather, including the famous Autumn at the Arboretum, which features 100,000 pumpkins, gourds, and squash throughout the Dallas Arboretum. The famous State Fair of Texas will take place between September 19 and October 22. It draws millions of locals and visitors with its food, live music, and fun Texan activities like rooster crowing contests and pig races.
The Arts District in the northern section of Downtown is home to several exciting arts venues. Popular venues in the district include the Dallas Museum of Art, the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, The Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, and Dallas Contemporary.
Dallas offers an extensive range of food. Different neighborhoods have their own culinary identities and attractions, such as Bishop Arts, Deep Ellum, and Seasons. Dallas offers Italian, Laotian, Cajun, and other cuisines with a Texan twist, but you can also bet on getting some of the country's best barbecue, chili, and burgers.
