Dallas is the eighth largest city in the USA and the heart of Texas. The Big D might be famous around the world for its barbecue ribs and rodeos but the city has quickly become one of the hottest spots in America, a place that successfully combines tradition and modern culture.
If you are in the Dallas Metroplex area, you'll be spoiled for choice. Visit the famous Mesquite Championship Rodeo or go watch one of the local teams defend their titles. The Dallas Mavericks are the current NBA champions, the Texas Rangers are the current MLB American League Champions and the Dallas Cowboys are considered an American institution and are one of the winningest teams in the NFL. But Dallas isn't just one of the best American sports cities. Shopping is a delight in Dallas. The metroplex area possesses the most shopping malls per person in the United States and fine boutiques and great restaurants are always at your fingertips.
The extensive range of Dallas hotels is another highlight in the Big D. From American classics, such as the Adolphus Hotel (named an official Dallas Landmark) and the Rosewood Mansion on Turle Creek, to modern hotels, such as the newly opened Omni Hotel, the city's hotels have become one more reason to visit Dallas.
