Proof that everything is bigger in Texas

A city that prides itself on colossal scale, Dallas is an excellent destination to ‘shop until you drop’. It’s a historically rich city too, with the beautiful Union Station sitting resplendently at the core of Dallas’ rail network. To appreciate the history of this town, The Sixth Floor Museum displays informative exhibits about late US President John F Kennedy. Make sure you take some time to see the natural side of Dallas too, with the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens flourishing in the warm seasons.
