No matter whether you are visiting Dallas for the first time or you have been many times before, there is no denying that there are so many things to see and do in this part of the United States. While Austin has gained a ton of popularity (stay weird, y'all), there's still a ton to do in good old Dallas. With that in mind, read on to discover some of the best places to visit while there.

The Sixth Floor Museum

The Sixth Floor Museum is a unique place that was once known as the Texas School Book Depository. It chronicles the death of JFK from an impartial point of view. It looks at his presidential history and documents events from every angle possible. If you are one of the 63% of Americans that still believe that President Kennedy’s assassination was part of a larger conspiracy, then this is definitely a museum that you won’t want to leave. Be sure to hang out in the area outside, too. There are generally people willing to give more individualized tours, and it experience is so surreal.

Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse

You cannot visit Texas without going to a steakhouse and Y.O. Ranch is considered the best steakhouse in Dallas by a lot of people. There's great atmosphere and steaks to die for. In fact, it's been described as one of the nation’s finest steakhouses by Food Network’s Jim O’Connor. Not only will you enjoy tucking into the delicious meat that is on offer but there is also a delicious array of cocktails, with the new special drink every month.

AT&T Stadium

The Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium is considered one of the most impressive stadiums in America. It's won a number of different awards thanks to the innovative design, which holds upwards of 85,000 fans. If you’re lucky enough to be in town while a Cowboys game on, this is definitely an experience to enjoy no matter whether you are an avid American football fan or not. (PS. There's a Panda Express right across the road, which is so yummy.)

The Katy Trail

When on vacation, it's always nice to take some time to unwind and relax, and the Katy Trail certainly gives you the ability to do so. It's popular with runners, in-line skaters, dog walkers, and cyclists alike. You can follow the path of the old Missouri Kansas Texas Road and take in all of the beautiful sights along the way.

Wild Bill’s Western store

Last but not least, you can’t have a Texan experience with about embracing the Wild Wild West in some capacity. The iconic Wild Bill’s Western store gives you the ability to do so. This store has leathered up everyone from Mick Jagger to Bon Jovi. When you arrive and see the life-size Longhorn cow, you'll immediately feel like you’re in Texas. If that's not enough, you'll even be served ice cold Texas beer while you shop.

As you can see, there is a lot to love about Dallas. If you’re planning on visiting this part of the world you should definitely try out some of the different activities mentioned above.
