About Dallas Tourism
Situated in the state of Texas, where it has grown to become the third-biggest city, Dallas is famous for many reasons, such as being the place where President JF Kennedy was shot, and also the setting for the popular television soap opera 'Dallas'. A number of its most visited attractions relate to these parts of its history - the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza and the adjacent John F. Kennedy Memorial, and also the Southfork Ranch, home of the much-loved Ewing family.
Dallas Fort Worth Airport (DFW) is close to a number of large suburban areas, namely Bedford, Colleyville, Coppell, Euless, Grapevine and Southlake. Both Irving and Arlington are also close to the airport, although most passengers head to Dallas to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the main sightseeing opportunities. Look out for the American Airlines Center entertainment complex, the Dallas World Aquarium, the huge Bank of America Tower, and Fair Park, where the Texas Centennial Expo was held in 1936.
