So many people who inhabit the Dallas area aren't native Texans. But, as the saying
goes, they got here as fast as they could.
Although the reasons for Big D's attraction are many, lush landscapes, wonderful year-round
weather and an embarrassment of "things to do" no doubt top the list.
Dallas vacations can begin and end without ever leaving the city. Just a stone's throw
from the reflecting, glass-encased skyscrapers you'll find daytime distractions such
as museums, zoos, shops, parks and lakes. Your day can then continue long after the
sun sets, if you wish, thanks to a large collection incredibly romantic restaurants
and hotspots where locals go to see and be seen.
Meanwhile, lake recreation and small-town charm reside just a few miles in either
direction of the Metroplex. Granbury, about 30 miles southwest of Fort Worth, offers
an ideal combination of small-town Texas history and big-lake Texas fun. The Bridgeport
and Tyler areas also provide opportunities to relax and rediscover lakeside living.
City or country, Endless Vacation Rentals makes it easy to kick back and relax at
the end of every exciting day, thanks to accommodations that include full kitchens,
living rooms, and patios or balconies to take in the Texas-sized views.

Mega outlets (Grapevine, Allen). If outlet shopping appeals to you, the
Dallas area won't disappoint. Consider walking the massive Grapevine Mills indoor
mall (Abercrombie & Fitch, GameWorks, Rainforest Café) or the outdoor Allen Premium
Outlets (Ann Klein, Calvin Klein, Nautica).
Mega malls (Dallas, Garland, Frisco). From the Galleria and Willow Bend in far north
Dallas to Stonebriar in Frisco, Dallas shoppers love their malls. But perhaps the

Marcus, Barneys New York and Nordstrom (and an impressive collection of artwork and
sculpture) share almost 2 million square feet of retail space.
