Quick Tips for Business Travelers: Dallas

Dallas skyline

Nestled in the heart of the Lone Star State, Dallas is Texas’s third-largest city boasting a rich architecture landscape and busy metropolitan area.

Our team is headed to Converge Live Dallas next week, so we compiled a list of the top things to see and do in Dallas.

Food and Drink:

Pecan Lodge

You can’t head to Dallas without stopping by a Texas BBQ joint. Pecan Lodge has an eclectic menu featuring signature items like their jalapeño sausages and “Hot Mess” entry (jumbo sea salt-crusted sweet potato with barbacoa and chipotle cream).

Tacos Y Mas

Tacos for breakfast? Sign us up. Tacos Y Mas was established in 1997 selling street Tacos in front of a grocery store. Now, they serve their award-winning street tacos in four locations throughout the city.

The Rustic

Interested in live music? Farm-to-table meals? Craft beer? The Rustic has a little bit of everything to accommodate a variety of patrons. Check out their event calendar to see which local and national acts are in town when you are visiting.

Activities:

Kylde Warren Park

Located in the Dallas Arts District, the Kylde Warren Park was built over a reclaimed railway line in 2012. The park has an array of free outdoor activities throughout the year, from yoga to badminton to ice-skating.

Bishop Arts District

If antiquing is your thing, you’ll want to head to Bishop Arts District. This hipster area has more than 60 restaurants, bars, coffee shops and individual boutiques.

Reunion Tower

If you’re looking for a good photo opportunity, head to the observation deck of the Reunion Tower. They have daily light shows and 360-degree panoramic views, making it a great spot to get pictures of the Dallas skyline. 

Wild Bill’s Western Store

In the market for authentic cowboy boots? This iconic store, located in Dallas’ historic West End, has everything you need for a Western adventure. They have even created custom costumes for several celebrities including Bon Jovi and Mick Jagger.
