Four attractions to see in Dallas

Updated on July 23, 2016

When visiting Dallas, here are four of the city's must see attractions to be sure to check out.

Perot Museum of Nature and Science

First check out the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, a hands-on science museum featuring 11 permanent exhibit halls that feature a range of exhibits from prehistoric fossils to futuristic technologies along with a 3D theater. Be sure to grab lunch in The Café, a Wolfgang Puck establishment that offers fare appealing to both adults and children. If possible, stop by the cafe before noon in order to beat the crowds.

Sixth Floor Museum

Then check out the nearby Sixth Floor Museum. Stroll through hundreds of historical films, radio and television broadcasts, photographs and artifacts that tell the story of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. See up close the sniper's perch and the area where the rifle was located which are preserved as they were on November 22, 1963. As entry to the museum is ticketed in 30-minute intervals, allow ample time to visit this historic treasure. Weekends and mornings tend to be the most crowded. Those with small children who do not wish to take them to this exhibit can go to the 106-acre Dallas Zoo instead.

George W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum

Also, the George W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum enables one to review the highlights of the Bush administration while also getting one's photograph taken at a replica of the Oval Office. Those looking for a more outdoor adventure can check out the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden instead.
