Texas - Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex (Chapter)
This is the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex chapter from Lonely Planet's Texas guidebook.
Dallas and Fort Worth have starkly different facades, but beyond appearances share a love of high (and low) culture and good old-fashioned Texas fun. So get ready to bust up plenty of preconceived notions of the proverbial city slicker and country cousin.
- get bull-riding and two-steppin' at the biggest honky-tonk on earth, the Stockyards' Billy Bob's Texas
- giddy-up to the National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame
- relive the tragic day of JFK's fateful assassination, at the Sixth Floor Museum
- restaurants & accommodations
Coverage includes: History, Itineraries, Dangers & Annoyances, Sights, Activities, Tours, Festivals & Events, Sleeping, Eating, Drinking, Entertainment, Shopping, Getting There, Away & Around, Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington and Waco.
