Fair Park

Featuring the world's largest collection of art deco exhibit buildings, art and sculpture, it's a spectacular place to simply walk the grounds or get a new perspective while peddling a swan boat on the park's lagoon. On nearby Exposition and Parry avenues, across from the light rail station, a cluster of bars and restaurants bring nights to life for a little post-park adventure.  

Arts and Culture

The Music Hall at Fair Park

Enjoy a Broadway musical or simply admire the Spanish Baroque and Moorish architecture of the newly renovated Music Hall.

Swan Boats

Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday (weather permitting) and daily during the State Fair, visitors can peddle around the Leonhardt Lagoon on a larger-than-life swan.

The Cotton Bowl Stadium

Since 1932, this recently renovated, 92,100-seat venue has played host to some of the biggest football rivalries in Texas, as well as music acts from around the world.
