Shopping Fun - Destination...Dallas!
If you love to shop, and you're anywhere near the Dallas-Fort Worth area, you are in for a great treat. The DFW metroplex offers dozens of malls and shopping centers to choose from, each completely different from the others. Out of all those choices, a few special places stand out that we must share with you.
If you're in Dallas, you absolutely must go to the Galleria. One of the fanciest malls in the country, it is by far DFW's flagship. The Galleria attracts the rich and famous, including some celebrity names you're sure to know. If glitz isn't your thing, but you still love a unique shopping experience, shop at Town East Mall and Stonebriar Centre, two of Dallas' fantastic shopping destinations. Both have their own charm and reasons why you'll love the experience.
Nearby, in Fort Worth, are more retail centers that are "must sees" for visitors and shoppers alike. Southlake Town Square is not a traditional enclosed- mall, but fantastic none-the-less. It is reminiscent of the town centers of yesteryear. Two more traditional malls in Fort Worth are Grapevine Mills and The Parks at Arlington. They each have their own distinct flares. Grapevine Mills seems to have every type of merchandise in the world available somewhere within its walls, while The Parks is just plain big.
There are tons of things to see and do in the DFW area, but if you're a shopping fan, this may be Mecca.
The Pearl of the South
If you're in Dallas and need something to do, flip a coin. Make sure that coin has at least six sides, because the possibilities are endless in the 'Big D'. It's not a choice between one or two things to do or see, it's a choice of hundreds. Pick your passion, and head out to find it.
Regardless of your passion as a resident or tourist, the city can meet your needs. Looking for a great dining experience? Dallas has some of the most renowned restaurants in the world at one end of the spectrum, to a host of local one-of-a-kind establishments that boast the best in barbeque and Tex-Mex. You won't be left wanting more.
If you love architecture, just look up and around. The Dallas area has been through a reformation recently, resulting in some of the best modern architecture in the United States, and perhaps even the world. For fans of the cultural arts, Dallas has amazing museums and art centers, as well as a renowned symphony orchestra and opera house. If you enjoy outdoor activities, but need to stay close to town, head out almost anywhere in the city. There's a huge array of activities for any fan of fitness.
Don't think about something to do, go do it. Enjoy everything that Dallas has to offer. Better yet, pick something you've never seen or done before and go enjoy that. It may turn out to be the greatest thing you've ever done.
