Dallas

— 2 nights

Big D

One of the country's most popular shopping destinations, Dallas and its sprawling suburbs include more shopping centers per capita than any other urban center in America.
Venture out of the city with trips to Fort Worth (Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District & Kimbell Art Museum) and North Richland Hills (NRH2O Family Water Park & North Richland Hills Centre). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Top O'Hill Terrace, soothe aching muscles at Lifestylez Nails Spa, take in panoramic vistas at Reunion Tower, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at The Dallas World Aquarium.
