Dallas is the eighth-largest city in the United States, yet it has more restaurants and more shops per capita than New York. It combines the traditional flavour of the Southwest with the sophisticated, contemporary corporate and cultural amenities of one of the country's key business centres.
Local culture and customs
-Dallas is a sophisticated city where you will see designer clothes alongside casual clothing, much like the rest of the country.
-When Texans say "Barbecue" they mean grilled meat with a spicy sauce slowly cooked on an outdoor grill.
-A night out for authentic Tex-Mex cuisine is a favourite pastime, especially when accompanied by a frozen Margarita – a tequila-based cocktail.
-Dallas Cowboy football games at Texas Stadium are an all-day social affair, beginning with brunch and often concluding late in the evening with dinner.
-Locals enjoy a variety of year-round outdoor activities, from sports events to water sports, running, hiking and golf – taking advantage of the area's naturally temperate climate.
Enjoy the annual Dallas Blooms festival, held at the Dallas Arboretum, a fabulous public garden.
