Dallas, the city, is completely unlike the famed television show. Most first-time visitors think it will be full of longhorns and oil rigs, but in reality, Dallas is a true metropolitan city; many natives don’t even have the trademark Texan drawl. The city’s massive highway systems, box stores, and mini mansions can be overwhelming, but on closer look, Dallas is a city that’s all about supporting the local whether that be restaurants, bars, breweries, musicians, or artists.

Food

Drinks

Shopping

I prefer more low-key, specialty shops, like bookstore/café Wild Detectives. With a constant selection of events like zine fests, readings and film screenings, Wild Detectives is a cornerstone in the creative community with a serious selection of books you wouldn’t be able find in a big box bookstore.

Cultural Attractions
