It was my 1st time visiting Dallas so I wasn't sure what to expect. I've heard many people talk about "Southern hospitality" and, boy, they weren't kidding. From the lady at the rental car counter to the security guard at the AT&T stadium, I felt genuinely welcomed to Texas. My 1st stop? Of course, The Dallas Cowboys Stadium. I have seen the stadium many times on TV but this
stadium is simply something else. Walking on the field, seeing the giant big screen, all those luxury boxes and accommodations, and feeling the atmosphere, everything seemed to scream "Texas Pride." Now my next stop, Fort Worth.
Considering it was 2pm when I arrived in downtown Fort Worth, it was relatively quiet. It was quite peaceful while I walked and browsed the city. Near the Sun-dance Square, I had a good look at some of those old buildings and got some sense of what it may have looked back in the old days.
Dallas Art museum was my 1st stop in the next morning of day 2. They have a big collection of fine arts (including Picasso & Monet) and breathtaking sculptures. To top it all, the admission was free! If you ever get hungry while enjoying the art, there is a restaurant called "Meso Maya" (5 minute walk from the museum), I highly recommend it. The salsa & margaritas... I am salivating.
After a hearty meal and few margaritas, it was time for a little exercise. I casually walked my way to the Sixth Floor Museum and in the process, I had a good view of downtown Dallas and the skyscrapers.
