Bright lights, big personalities, shiny cars… in many ways, Dallas is the belle of the Texas ball. From JR Ewing and the TV show Dallas to the Dallas Cowboys and their cheerleaders, this city has made a deep imprint on American popular culture. An upscale ethos makes for an amazing dining scene. The museums are not only excellent, but unique; history buffs should not miss the memorials to former president John F. Kennedy. And one of the most impressive additions to Dallas’ cultural landscape in recent years is the 68-acre Arts District, now one of the largest in the country.

From green spaces in the heart of the city to vibrant experiences across walkable neighborhoods, BIG Things Happen Here. Five major professional sports teams and a sprawling arts district encourage nights full of adrenaline and entertainment. With more than 20 entertainment areas, a multitude of options in shopping and dining ensures even the most diverse groups will leave pleasantly surprised and satisfied.

Dallas is the 4th fastest growing city in the U.S. and 7 of the top 15 cities are in Texas. As Texas grows, your potential drive audience continues to grow across all vertical market segments… and thus your event attendance grows. Two major airports provide direct flights from 170 airports every day of the year. Dallas is a stress-free 3-hour flight from almost anywhere in the country. With more than 13,000 Downtown Dallas area hotel rooms and 35 new hotel projects in the works, Dallas has accommodations and price points for every preference and budget.

Spring and autumn are transitional seasons with moderate and pleasant weather. Vibrant wildflowers bloom in the spring, which is absolutely beautiful to see as you stroll throughout Texas. Springtime weather can be quite volatile, but temperatures themselves are mild. The weather in Dallas is also generally pleasant from late September to early December and on many winter days. Autumn can bring more storms and tornado threats, but usually fewer and less severe than in the spring.
