Arturo Alvarez Demalde Reviews Dallas, Texas
A view of the Dallas skyline from Trinity River Greenbelt Park reveals several buildings that exceed 700 feet, but it is the mix of modern and postmodern design that makes the city of Dallas quite appealing from an aesthetic perspective. Though the contemporary architecture tends to stand out most from a distance, it is the smaller, Gothic Revival and neoclassical buildings that help create a unique sense of character within the large urban locale. While the architectural elements are certainly appealing, the city itself has much more to offer beyond just its impressive structures, including the Reunion Tower, City Hall and the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.
Like many cities in Texas, history can be found in abundance throughout Dallas. The city was first established as a center for trade and commerce due to its proximity to the railroads and its thriving oil and cotton industries, and of course, Dallas was the location in which President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald in 1963. Other historic sites can be found throughout the city, and many visitors explore these locations Arturo Alvarez-Demalde says, “the West End Historic District and the Dallas Arts District are two of my favorite places”. Those who are looking to experience some traditional Texas cuisine have a tremendous array of options at their disposal in these districts, and indeed throughout the whole of the city of Dallas.
The Dallas World Aquarium is a particularly impressive attraction that draws visitors from around the world. With a zoo also on its premises, the Dallas World Aquarium frequently features exhibits that are entirely unique, including the Mundo Maya, an exhibit featuring plants and animals central to Mayan folklore. The exhibit includes red-eared slider turtles, Jack Dempsey and jaguar cichlids, Axolotls, spectacled owls, Central American agoutis, wattled jacanas, Jabiru storks and black and white hawk eagles. This particular exhibit also features a 400,000-gallon Cenote that houses sharks, rays and turtles indigenous to the Yucatan Peninsula.
Dallas is also home to "America’s Team," the Dallas Cowboys of the NFL. The team’s home arena, AT&T Stadium, is one of the largest and most technologically advanced in all of sports, and it is in fact the largest domed structure in the world. The team offers guided tours to those interested in seeing the stadium up close, including the collection of contemporary art the stadium houses. The city is also home to the Dallas Stars of the NHL, the Dallas Mavericks of the NBA, and the Texas Rangers of MLB, and its status as a sports-loving community was confirmed by The Sporting News, as the publication recently named Dallas as the best sports city in the entire United States.
As one of the largest cities in the US and the fourth-largest in Texas, Dallas is an excellent destination for travelers looking for an urban center that includes a host of unique attractions and events relating to many diverse interests. Dallas is certainly a city that has something for everyone, making it an incredibly popular city among visitors and residents alike.
In his parting words, Arturo Alvarez Demalde said the following, “Without a doubt I love the city. Dallas is great, the people are wonderful, the infrastructure is top-notch, there are plentiful jobs, but also a great job base. I would love to live here one day!”
