How to Spend 2 Days in Dallas

How to Spend 2 Days in Dallas

With two days to spend in the Big D, you’ll have enough time to see the city’s highlights, learn about the infamous JFK assassination, and tour Texas icons such as the Dallas Cowboys Stadium and Southfork Ranch. You’ll even have some leisure time to explore on your own. Here are some tips for planning the ultimate 48 hours in Dallas.

Day 1: City Sights

Morning: Kick off your trip by getting an overview of what Dallas has to offer on a city sightseeing tour. Zip around downtown and the Arts District on a guided Segway tour, or opt for a small-group bus tour to cover more ground in less time. If you’d prefer to explore on your own, pick up a multiattraction city pass or challenge yourself with a self-guided scavenger hunt through the city.

Afternoon: After lunch, dive deeper into what interests you by visiting one of Dallas’ excellent museums. Several are concentrated in the downtown Dallas Arts District, including the Dallas Museum of Art and Nasher Sculpture Center. To learn more about an infamous day in Dallas history, take a guided tour of the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, the location where JFK was shot.

Night: Now that you’ve worked up an appetite with all that sightseeing, treat yourself to a food-centric night on the town. Each neighborhood has its own distinct flavor, so pick one for a food tour—West Village for its casual eateries, upscale and pedestrian-friendly Uptown, eclectic Bishop Arts, or eccentric Deep Ellum.

Day 2: Texas Icons

Morning: There’s nothing quite like hearing the roar of the crowd at a Dallas Cowboys game, but if you can’t make it to one, opt for the next best thing—a tour of their state-of-the-art stadium. Go behind the scenes to see the press box, locker rooms, private suites, and interview rooms, and snap a selfie on the field.

Afternoon: Now that you’ve experienced a Dallas sports icon, spend the afternoon immersed in a pop culture legend at Southfork Ranch. This estate doubled as the Ewing Mansion in the popular TV series Dallas. See Jock Ewing’s original Lincoln Continental, as well as the live Texas longhorns and American quarter horses that live on the estate.

Night: As the sun goes down, wrap up your time in Dallas at the top of Reunion Tower for 360-degree views of the urban skyline from the indoor/outdoor GeO-Deck. Explore the city through interactive touchscreens as you take in the views from 470 feet (143 meters) in the air.
