Follow American Airlines as we go off the beaten path to discover more things to do in Dallas. Head out to Arlington to catch a baseball or football game, ride a roller coaster at family-friendly Six Flags amusement park, and wait for night to fall to hit Deep Ellum, Dallas’ famous live music district. American is with you every step of the way. Ride a roller-coaster at Six Flags Over Texas, one of the best amusement parks in Texas.
Soar 25 stories high on Titan, then plummet down at 85 mph for the ride of your life. Or try the classic wooden Judge Roy Scream coaster, the 24-story Mr. Freeze, or the double-loops of Shock Wave. Cool off with a dunk in the water on AQUAMAN Splashdown. Hit the galleries, clubs and restaurants of Deep Ellum, Dallas’s funky nightlife district.
Deep Ellum’s roots as a hot spot go back a hundred years, when Leadbelly and Blind Lemon Jefferson were playing blues music here. Check out live music clubs Trees and Dada, grab one of Dallas’ best burgers at The Angry Dog, and hit the art galleries that are interspersed throughout the district. Take the DART to White Rock Lake and stroll through the Dallas Arboretum.
Dallas’ mass transit system runs straight from downtown to this 1200-acre lake, where boaters, fishermen, and hikers can enjoy a quiet afternoon. For a nice workout, walk halfway around the lake to the gardens of the Arboretum, where you can see the Dallas skyline across the lake. Window-shop at two small and elegant outdoor malls, Snider Plaza and Preston Center.
Here’s your chance to visit unique fashion stores you won’t see in a mega-mall, such as Allie-Coosh and Betty Reiter. And when it’s time to chow down, hit Bubba’s in Snider Plaza for down-home fried chicken or Taco Diner in Preston Center for succulent fish tacos. Visit Cowboys Stadium or Rangers Ballpark in Arlington to see the Cowboys or Rangers play a home game.
