Dallas is one of the biggest cities in Texas, but is not just a place where lots of Texans live – it is also a city that is popular with vacationers. To some, the city might still be synonymous with the old TV show, but the reality of present-day Dallas is quite different. Although, in truth, you will still see lots of glitter, big hair, and make-up – that is one thing that has not really changed much! To get a look at the city up close and personal without breaking the bank, be sure to check out the cheap hotels in Dallas for your trip.
There is quite a bit of money in this city, so the cheap hotels in Dallas may not be as plentiful as you would expect in a city of this size – but they do exist. But unfortunately, even if you can find a budget bed in downtown Dallas you may still end up needing a rental car to get around and see the sights in the city. Yes, there are buses and trams which cross-cross the city, but they are primarily designed for the locals to get to and from work – not for tourists to get to and from the area attractions.
There are a few nice museums in Dallas which may be worth a visit, including the city’s Museum of Art and the so-called Sixth Floor Museum which is in the building from which Lee Harvey Oswald is said to have fired the shot which killed President John F. Kennedy, but many visitors never set foot in the city’s museums. There are enough famous sports teams in Dallas that you could make an entire trip focused on sports! There is also some good golfing to be done in the area, and a couple of amusement parks which are fun for the whole family.
