Showing the 1972 (gotta love that year!!) Datsun 240Z in the Dallas Autorama once again! Another first place in our class!!

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.

Seasonal Highlights

Enjoy the annual Dallas Blooms festival, held at the Dallas Arboretum, a fabulous public garden.

During the second week of May, experience the Byron Nelson Classic, a PGA TOUR event held annually at the Resort.

The State Fair of Texas is an annual festival celebrating Texas heritage. Held during the first three weeks of October, the fair is located at the historic Fair Park near downtown Dallas.

Dallas hosts an abundance of professional sporting events, including the following:

Dallas Cowboys Football - August to January
Dallas Mavericks Baseball - November to June
Dallas Stars Hockey - October to May
Texas Rangers Baseball - April to September
NASCAR Racing at Texas Motor Speedway
Horseracing and Parimutual Betting at Lone Star Park
Forth Worth Rodeo, the second largest professional rodeo in Texas - February
