Dallas has a lot of enjoyable activities. In fact, you may not be able to schedule it all. However, it's worth checking out these attractions if you have a full day to spend in the city.
FOR A LEARNING OPPORTUNITY:
With interactive exhibits galore, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science has plenty to keep you busy and entertained. Race against an Olympic athlete, explore the Expanding Universe Hall or see what it feels like to experience an earthquake. Use a CityPASS and see all the exciting exhibits in the five-floor museum at a discounted rate. Another engaging activity is the Dallas Zoo, another CityPASS attraction. With two thousand animals to observe, the Dallas Zoo is the largest zoo in Texas. Feed a giraffe, tour the 160-acre zoo, and marvel at the Giants of the Savanna Exhibit.
FOR THE SHOPAHOLIC:
For an only-in-Dallas shopping experience, visit Highland Park Village. This historic landmark is known for its beautiful architecture and features some of the top luxury designer brands. It's an excellent spot for high-end retail relaxation for locals and visitors alike. Alternatively, NorthPark Center houses a collection of more than 200 retail favorites, trendsetting boutiques and exceptional restaurants. The mall provides the ultimate shopping, dining and entertainment experience. In addition to the shopping, NorthPark Center displays an impressive array of internationally acclaimed artwork for shoppers to view and a beautiful courtyard for a little fresh air. If you're looking for unique pieces, ride the Dallas Streetcar to the Bishop Arts District. The district is home to more than 60 one-of-a-kind boutiques, restaurants, art galleries and an excellent spot for unique finds.
FOR A WESTERN-HERITAGE FEEL:
If you're looking for an authentic Texan experience, venture to Texas Horse Park, just minutes from Downtown. Ride horseback through the Great Trinity Forest and take in the beautiful pastoral setting. There are trails for all skill levels and ages to enjoy.
