Lately there’s been so much media buzz surrounding the famous Texas city. Many shows have been taking place in the Lone Star State and placing Dallas in the center of the spotlight, including reality shows like Bravo’s Top Chef and the stylish Most Eligible Dallas with the always fashionable Courtney Kerr. TNT’s continuation of the ’80s hit series Dallas brings the next generation of Ewings, starting Josh Henderson and Jesse Metcalfe to the center of the drama. If the promos are any indication, TNT’s Dallas looks like it will be pretty epic, I know I can’t wait for it to start.
A couple of months ago I had the chance to see the iconic southern metropolis, while visiting my cousin Ana. I can certainly say that the saying “Everything is bigger in Texas” is true, especially the shopping! Fun fact: Dallas has more shopping centers per capita than any other U.S. city. Some of the shopping I had a chance to sample during my stay included the fabulous Galleria Dallas, trendy North Park Center, the historic Highland Park Village, and cute boutiques in Snider Plaza. Also, a trip to Dallas just isn’t complete without a visit to the luxurious Neiman Marcus which was founded right here. Not only does this city have some of the best shopping around, but also some great nightlife in Uptown and some of the nicest people I’ve ever met! Southfork Ranch was the only place I didn’t get around to seeing while in Texas, but I’m sure there will be more trips to the Lone Star State and The Big D in my future. Until then here are some highlights from my first trip down south.
