When in Dallas, between a “howdy” on the dancefloors in Oak Loan or Uptown and a barbecue in one of the amazing places all over the city, make sure not to miss the biggest arts district in the whole nation, the Dallas arts district.
The top rankers, in my opinion are the Dallas Museum of Art and the Nasher Sculpture Center. The first has a remarkable permanent exhibition and very interesting temporary collections during the year (I saw the Pop Art one and it was amazing). The Nasher has great pieces two and, since sculpture is my true love, I think it’s the most gorgeous museum in Dallas.
Once you make a trip to the district, enjoy a walk in Klyde Warren Park. If you wish, you can even sit down at the colorful tables and eat some tasty-crazy-good truck food!
If you are in town during Aurora don’t even dare to miss it or you will regret it.
Aurora Art Festival is a huge event that takes place in the Dallas Art District, it combines museums open till late night, art in the streets of the biggest art district in the country, that becomes only pedestrian area for one night, colorful lights, and most interesting, art loving people all around.
You can either go to Nesher Museum, and DMA for an enchanted night visit, or you can walk around the district to find the most incredible interactive art installation exclusively for Aurora.
I had so much fun, and it was a unique experience that will be hard to forget.
Finally, since we are just a few blocks away from Dealey Plaza, why not visit the JFK Museum?
It is very well-structured and the audio guide is great! You will jump back in history and go through those hard moments, but I think that it is a great experience if you enjoy American history and are familiar with the events or just want to know a little more about JFK.
