One of the best times to visit Dallas-Fort Worth is September. The scorching summer heat is slowly subsiding and the legendary State Fair of Texas begins. Autumn means football in the Lone Star state, and the beloved Dallas Cowboys are back on the gridiron. Known jointly as the Metroplex, Dallas and Fort Worth have their own identities. The Big D has a diverse, international, and cosmopolitan vibe, while Cowtown offers a traditional Texas feel, mixed with a world-class cultural scene. By exploring both Dallas and Fort Worth, visitors experience the best of both worlds.


Texas is known for its Tex-Mex, and starting the day with a breakfast taco is a must. They are found almost everywhere, but the ones sold in taquerías are the best.

Experience authentic cowboy culture. Twice daily, real cowboys move a herd of longhorns through the centre of Fort Worth’s Stock Yards, a UNESCO historical district.

After achieving state-wide acclaim, Cooper’s has brought its legendary barbecue restaurant to Fort Worth, in the Stock Yards. Make sure to try the beef brisket with plenty of their exceptional sauce.

Everything is bigger in Texas, and the AT&T Stadium is a fine example of the state’s mantra. This enormous, state-of-the-art stadium must be seen. Choose from guided or self-guided tours.

The chain of events leading up to JFK’s assassination as he drove through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas is chronicled through videos, photos, and relics at the Sixth Floor Museum.

Shop ’til you drop at the original Neiman Marcus in downtown Dallas. This leader in luxury goods began over a century ago and now has locations throughout the USA.

Get a great view of Dallas at Reunion Tower GeO-Deck. A digital display teaches visitors about the city and its attractions. Stop in Five Sixty, a Wolfgang Puck restaurant, for a pre-dinner cocktail.

Enjoy the quintessential Texan steakhouse dining experience at Pappas Bros. – one of the best in the Metroplex. The prime beef at this fine restaurant makes it a meat-loving epicurean’s dream.

Go to Greenville Avenue for Dallas’s eclectic nightlife. Upper Greenville is upscale, while Lower Greenville has a bohemian vibe. Catch some live music at the Granada Theater.
