Destination Dallas

February, 2013 by

Looking for a fun weekend getaway in Texas? Consider staying at a bed and breakfast near Dallas. Dallas is one of the nation’s most exciting and vibrant cities, but drive just 30 miles in almost any direction and you can find small towns with all the charm you would expect in down-home Texas. Staying at a bed and breakfast near Dallas can maximize the charm and still put you in close vicinity to the city.

There are lots of things to see and do in Dallas. The new Dallas Arts District is an innovation in the world of the fine arts. The area contains the Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, Wylie Opera House, Dallas Theater Center, Crow Collection of Asian Art, Myerson Symphony Center, and Dallas Black Dance Theater, all within the space of a few blocks. In the last year alone, three new venues have appeared. The Dallas Performing Arts Center hosts the best in Broadway tours as well as high caliber local performances. The brand new Perot Museum is an interactive science museum aimed at children, but full of fascinating information for adults as well. Klyde Warren Park recently opened as a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the city. It frequently hosts performing arts events as well as the city’s famous gourmet food trucks.

Nearby, is the infamous Dealey Plaza and Sixth Floor Museum, commemorating the assassination of JFK. Though a saddening reminder of a tragic time, the museum is nonetheless one of the most popular sites for visitors to the city. To cheer yourself up afterwards, head a few blocks over to Main Street where you can see the flagship Neiman Marcus, the flagship for luxury shopping in Dallas. If that sounds a little too ritzy, just go further down on Main Street to Deep Ellum, a hip area full of colorful murals, bars, unique local restaurants, and the Undermain Theater, hailed as “one of the best small theaters in America.”

Choosing a bed and breakfast Dallas area also puts you at a good distance from the many things to do outside the city as well. You could visit Southfork Ranch where the original series of Dallas was filmed. Arlington is home to both the Texas Rangers and the Dallas Cowboys, so if you’re a sports fan you can try to catch a game. Even if it’s not football season, the newly built Cowboys’ Stadium offers tours year round. With all the things to see in the area, you may need to expand your weekend trip into a week. Good thing you have beautiful accommodations at a bed and breakfast near Dallas.


Beaumont Ranch is a bed and breakfast near Dallas that is located on a fully functional 800 acre cattle ranch.
