As one of the biggest cities in the U.S., Dallas boasts a thriving economy and diverse population of more than 1.3 million people.1 “The Big D” is also a popular tourist destination, but you don’t have to be an out-of-towner to enjoy the city’s attractions. Here are 10 places Dallas residents can go this summer to rediscover the city.

Dallas Museum of Art

This museum is one of the 10 largest in the country, with a collection of more than 24,000 works representing a wide range of world cultures.2 The DMA offers free general admission, making it a popular spot for families looking to introduce children to artwork. The museum has concerts, gallery talks, summer art camps and tours that engage people of all ages and backgrounds.

Reunion Tower

Offering the best views of the city, Reunion Tower is the place to see Dallas while beating the summer heat. The tower’s observation deck is the main attraction, but you can make a day of it by enjoying a meal at one of Reunion Tower’s two revolving restaurants and staying late to see the city lights.3 Kids won’t want to miss the weekday activities happening this summer, such as science experiments and zoo animal encounters.

Dealey Plaza

When many people think of Dallas, they think of President Kennedy’s assassination. This tragedy is an important part of the city’s history, and it’s memorialized at Dealey Plaza. You can tour the Sixth Floor Museum, which has historical exhibits related to the assassination.

Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden

Just minutes from downtown, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is a 66-acre urban oasis that’s open year-round and regularly features new plants.4 Stroll through the 19 gardens, snap some photos or take part in seasonal activities, such as cooking demonstrations, family fun nights and science tours.

LEGOLAND® Discovery Center

Not just for kids, LEGOLAND Discovery Center is known as the “ultimate indoor playground.” The center features three rides, 10 play areas and a 4-D movie theater.5 For an even more educational experience, take a factory tour to see how Legos are made.

George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum

No matter your political views, visiting a presidential library is an incredible learning opportunity. The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum has thousands of artifacts from the former president’s administration. You can pretend to be the president in the replica Oval Office or honor the lives lost in the 9/11 terror attacks at the “Nation Under Attack” exhibit.6

Six Flags Over Texas

Thrill seekers won’t want to pass up this chance to get their adrenaline soaring. Ride the classic Titan rollercoaster or test your bravery on the 400-foot-tall Texas SkyScreamer.7 There are also tamer attractions for kids and those lacking a strong stomach.

Dallas World Aquarium

The Dallas Zoo opened in 1888 and has grown exponentially since. It now features more than 2,000 animals spread across 106 acres.8 The zoo is home to the only multi-species exhibit in the U.S. that mixes elephants and other animals in the same habitat, as well as one of the first programs in the country that lets children earn points for bringing in natural items.
