The Dallas area is filled with exciting entertainment opportunities. From world class art musuems to championship professional sports teams, there is always something fun to do. Below are some of my favorite places to go.

The pictures we've collected are divided into three sections:

The Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center
Reviewed and toured by critics from around the world, the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center has been acclaimed as a "world-class concert hall" and one of the most acoustically perfect concert halls in the world.
 
Dallas Musuem of Art
Since its founding in 1903, the DMA has worked to build a permanent collection of world scope and importance. With major holdings in ancient American, African, Indonesian, and contemporary art, as well as American decorative arts, the Museum serves as a cultural center for the Dallas/Fort Worth area of North Texas.
 
Kimbell Art Musuem
The Kimbell features 18th-century British portraits and late European Renaissance art, and is host to touring collections throughout the year. The permanent collection includes works by Goya, El Greco, Ribera, Murillo, Canaletto, Tintoretto, Tiepolo, Rubens, Van Dyck, Cuyp, Monet and Cezanne.
 
The Sixth Floor Musuem
The sixth floor of the building - which had remained virtually untouched since Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly perched with a rifle in the southeast corner window in l963 - has been transformed into an educational museum examining the events and historical legacy of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
 
DALLAS/FORT WORTH NIGHT LIFE

 

The West End Marketplace
The West End Market Place is a warehouse district on the northwest corner of downtown. The most recent addition to the West End is the famous Planet Hollywood. The West End is the perfect place for the kids as well as their parents. At night there is a hustle and bustle comparable to the french quarter. Lots of restaurants and bars. When the weather is nice you can expect to see a live band playing a free concert outside.
 
Deep Ellum
Deep Ellum is the renovated warehouse district located just three blocks east of downtown Dallas. This 170 acres is known as the alternative from the "norm." It is the home of fashion-forward, trend-setting style and the birthplace for many new bands.
 
Fort Worth Stockyards
The Fort Worth Stockyards, or "Northside" is a popular haunt for real cowboys. This historic area is host each year to several star-studded rodeos and the Chisolm Trail. Adults and families fill the streets each day in the Stockyards.
