How to Spend 1 Day in Dallas

How to Spend 1 Day in Dallas

The Big D is a Texas icon, thanks to its football, eponymous television series, country music, and upscale ethos. There’s plenty to see and do in this Lone Star city, and even if you only have one day, you still have time for a uniquely Texas experience. Here’s how to make the most of your limited time in Dallas.

Morning: City Highlights

Take the morning to get your bearings with a sightseeing tour of Dallas. Learn about the city’s history as you cruise through downtown and the Arts District by Segway, or opt for a small-group coach tour to visit sites such as Pioneer Plaza, Dallas City Hall, and Dealey Plaza. If you’d rather explore at your own pace, pick up a multiattraction city pass to visit some of the most popular attractions—the Perot Museum, Reunion Tower GeO-Deck, Dallas Zoo, and the George W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum among them—at your leisure. 

Afternoon: An Afternoon with JFK

In the afternoon, take a step back in time to learn more about one of the most historically significant events to ever take place in Dallas, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Sift through stories and conspiracy theories with a local guide as you visit the Grassy Knoll, Kennedy Memorial, and the former home of Lee Harvey Oswald. Don’t leave Dallas without a visit to the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza and its collection chronicling the life and death of JFK.

Night: A Taste of Texas

Dallas is proud of its food scene, so loosen that belt and treat your tastebuds to the flavors of Texas this evening. Options abound. Head to a local barbecue joint for some slow-smoked brisket, sample the city’s best tacos and margaritas on a food tour, or explore the culinary scene of a particular neighborhood, such as Deep Ellum, West Village, or Uptown. After you’ve had your fill, finish your day with a night out on the town. Hop aboard a multipassenger party bike for a pub crawl.
