All The Excuses You Need To Visit Dallas
A place where food, nightlife and excitement can rival that of some bigger, more expensive cities.
So you need a vacation and you want to have fun — without draining your life savings. Lucky for you, a 2015 study showed the reasonably priced Dallas-Fort Worth area is the booziest metropolitan.

And bonus! That game falls during the State Fair of Texas, so you can meet Big Tex. He's the massive 55-foot statue that's been the symbol of the festival since 1952.
Just make sure you have empty stomach when you go. Personal suggestion? Deep-fried Sriracha balls because who knew condiments could be fried?
And if after devouring every deep-fried food imaginable you want to work it off, check out the actual Katy Trail, a 3-mile trail running through the heart of the city.
