Explore Dallas Culture & Entertainment


Dallas Ft Worth

The best thing about the Dallas-Forth Worth area is that you get two cities for the price of one. Each has its own personality and events, but both are quintessentially Texas. Dallas is the flashier of the two, with tons of restaurants and shopping, as well as being the heart and soul of the area's business community. Fort Worth is true to its roots, a down-home city that embraces its cowboy culture. But it's not all rodeos and cattle shows. Fort Worth has a great historical district and a vibrant arts scene that few can deny. Whichever way you're leaning, from cowboy cosmopolitan to cowboy charm, you won't be at a loss for things to do in Dallas and Fort Worth. Let's saddle up and ride. Hyatt will show you the way.
