Stop by the Sixth Floor Museum

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza chronicles the life, assassination and legacy of President John F. Kennedy. Experience a memorable time in history with thoughtful exhibits and artifacts – a must-see for any Dallas visit and just a quick 15-minute walk from the American Airlines Center. The exhibit, set up as a timeline leading up to the November 1963 events, includes one-of-a-kind historical photographs, films, artifacts and documents that tell the story of JFK’s assassination as well as that of his family life and presidency.


Take a stroll at the Dallas Arboretum

Escape for a moment  from the games to get outside! Explore 66 acres of 11 lush gardens on display at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. This season, you’ll see beautiful spring florals during Dallas Blooms, the largest outdoor floral festival in the Southwest. You’ll fall in love with this year’s Flower Power theme.


Go wild at the Dallas Zoo

Visit the world-class, 106-acre Dallas Zoo – it’s the largest in Texas and features many rare and endangered species. The Giants of the Savanna, an 11-acre safari experience is where you can get up close and personal with giraffes, elephants, lions, cheetahs and many other African species. If you came to Dallas for the games with the whole family, this is a good one that will entertain even the hardest to impress.


Sit in the Oval Office at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum

The Library and Museum, on the beautiful SMU campus, features both permanent and special exhibits, a precise replica of the Oval Office, beams from the World Trade Center twisted from the events of 9/11, a Texas Rose Garden, and several interactive exhibits. The popular Decision Points Theater lets you experience the presidential decision-making process firsthand. The Library and Museum is an only-in-Dallas experience, so you have to take advantage during your Dallas getaway.
