For those looking to travel to the area for the first time, or those looking to relocate here, allow us to welcome you with open arms to the city that offers an abundance of friendliness, fanciful sights, food and fun.
The city does well with blending culture, history and modern amenities with romanticism. In a few hours’ time you can take in a museum, find a cozy nook in an eclectic bookstore sipping your favorite beverage, and ice skate year-round at one of the nation’s most impressive malls, the Galleria Dallas, and see world-class modern architecture as you travel from sight to sight.
Did we mention this was just in a few hours’ time? Dallas offers many exciting attractions within just miles of each other. Upon my first visit I was delighted to see that I could experience so much of what the city had to offer in a short amount of time, thus adding value to my vacation.
For those looking to relocate, Dallas is a place to especially enjoy the spring season. There is just something about the greening lawns, budding trees and a street lined in sweet-scented colorful blooms that makes a city feel like home.
Leisurely, romantic strolls and nature walks help connect you to the heart of where you are visiting or living. I suggest spending an afternoon at the gorgeous Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden where you can soak in literature in the property’s romantic poetry garden, or walk the nature path through the woods surrounding White Rock Lake.
For dinner, Sambuca Uptown Supper Club will make you swoon with their decadent fare and live jazz music, as will the many locally owned eateries and coffee shops scattered around town. Visitors and residents can find a wide array of dining options from Italian and Indian, to classic American or Asian-Fusion, as there truly is something for every palate.
As the sun begins to set on your day, head along the waters of the Mandalay Canal in Irving to take a gondola ride through the waters of Lake Carolyn. As you do, sit back, relax and breathe in the diversity of a day well spent.
