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.
Family-friendly places like Grapevine Historic Main Street District and Pioneer Plaza will thrill your kids. Step off the beaten path and head to Dallas Zoo and Nasher Sculpture Center. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Dallas: Black Watch Sailing Charters (in Grapevine) and Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary (in McKinney). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, make a trip to Giant Eyeball, steep yourself in history at Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park, and wander the streets of NorthPark Center.

For maps, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Dallas road trip planning tool.

Santa Maria is a city near the Southern California coast in Santa Barbara County. Family-friendly places like Piedras Blancas and Stepladder Ranch & Creamery will thrill your kids.

There's much more to do: admire the majestic nature at Montana de Oro State Park, explore the activities along Morro Bay National Estuary, have fun and explore at Santa Maria Valley Discovery Museum, and experience rural life at Avila Valley Barn.
