11 outstanding Dallas-Fort Worth attractions
Art, history, and the natural world are showcased as these must-see Experts' Choice attractions in DFW.
You could be forgiven for first thinking of the coasts when you think of world-class art collections, but if you stopped there, you'd be missing out. The most populous inland metro area in the U.S. boats some excellent art collections: the Michelin Guide calls Dallas's Kimbell Art Museum "one of the finest small public art museums in the world" and the building itself is perhaps architect Louis Kahn's crowning achievement. At the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Fort Worth offers visitors a shining collection of American art particularly notable for its Western and photographic pieces.
Art's not all there is in DFW, though, by a long shot. The Sixth Floor Museum and the Forth Worth Stockyards, for example, provided lenses for very different aspects of the area's storied past. The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens as well as the Forth Woo Zoo put visitors in touch with both local flora and fauna and wildlife from further afield. Whatever your interests, you're sure to find something in this sprawling metro area.
