Dallas is devoted to art and artists. Dallas boasts the largest urban arts district in the United States, has more than 115 public pieces of art on display and is home to the fourth largest concentration of luxury furnishing showrooms, art and antique galleries in the burgeoning Dallas Design District. Visit the Renzo Piano designed Nasher Sculpture Center, housing one of the foremost collections of 20th century contemporary sculpture in the world, just down the street from the I.M. Pei-designed Meyerson Symphony Center housing 2012 Musical America Conductor of the Year Jaap van Zweden and his Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
Dallas is committed to living local. The Bishop Arts District, Dallas’ most sought-after destination for homegrown restaurants, bars, shops and galleries, has been featured in publications across the world including a feature story in the New York Times. No matter where you look, Dallasites are creating their own art, film, fashion and music and the city is devoted to insuring their success.
Dallas is a mecca of food and fashion. The gastronome can indulge in the traditions crafted by the fathers of Southwestern cuisine such as Dean Fearing and Stephan Pyles or enjoy Texas favorites such as Tex-Mex and Barbecue. If you’ve come to shop, you’ll soon understand why Dallas is known as the birthplace of shopping, with the country’s first outdoor planned shopping center (Highland Park Village), the first indoor climate-controlled mall (NorthPark Center), the first Neiman Marcus department store and the famous Galleria Dallas.
Dallas is serious about sports and recreation. Dallas is the only city in the southwest home to five professional sports teams including the 2011 NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks, 2010 and 2011 ALCS champion Texas Rangers and “America’s Team” the Dallas Cowboys. We take our personal fitness seriously too with a 3.5 mile run/bike trail in the heart of downtown, a lake in the heart of our city and over 250 golf courses to choose from. Dallas knows nightlife. Dallas has an incredible array of unique options available throughout each of the 14 vibrant neighborhoods in and around downtown. Whether you want to relax with friends or watch the sun come up in the morning, it really is true that the city comes alive after five.
A city is not defined by its buildings, its business or even its attractions. A city is defined by its people and the culture they create. With 14 unique neighborhoods in and around downtown, visitors to Dallas have the opportunity to experience a myriad of distinct cultures, lifestyles and entertainment.
