As bad as the events of November 22nd, 1963 were, Dallas will forever be remembered in history as the place where the late President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in front of a large crowd of spectators.

Also known as “The Big D,” Dallas definitely has a lot to offer. With its array of spectacular museums and various cultural activities to keep you and the family busy, exploring the city for one whole day may not be enough.

Below are some of the awesome activities you can do as soon as you arrive.

Relive History at Dealey Plaza
Though we’ve seen a handful of documentaries and TV shows about the Kennedy assassination, nothing beats the real thing, so to speak.

From the exact spot on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository where Kennedy was shot to the actual spot where the fatal second bullet struck the late president, the cityscape at Dealey Plaza has remained almost unchanged.

The site has also been declared as a National Historic Landmark, making it a must-see for anyone who’s visiting Dallas.

Take a Stroll around the Nasher Sculpture Center
Whether you’re a big art fan or not, walking the beautiful grounds of the Nasher Sculpture Center is definitely worth your time.

Designed by the great Italian architect Renzo Piano, this one-of-a-kind museum features more than 300 works of art created by some of history’s most gifted hands like Matisse, Rodin, and Picasso.

More than being an Instagrammable establishment, visiting the Nasher is a great way to learn more about art.

Experience a Dallas Scavenger Hunt
Why explore the city of Dallas the “usual” way when you can do it with a little more spice?

Companies like CityHUNT specialize in customizing scavenger hunts according to your family or team’s needs. By incorporating a variety of games and challenges to your traditional scavenger hunt, touring Dallas becomes more fun and exciting.

If a Dallas scavenger hunt sounds like a great idea, you can book online before your arrival to give the company time to plan your hunt.

Get a Taste of the Best Food Around the World at Trinity Groves
Traveling to Dallas (or anywhere else for that matter) will never be complete without great food. Luckily for you, Dallas has Trinity Groves to help you soothe those taste buds.

Whether you like Asian, Italian, or Mexican, or if you’re into seafood or barbecue, you’ll find everything you need in this cozy restaurant hub.

Apart from its host of restos, the venue also features retail shops as well as event places that are guaranteed to give you and your family a great time.

Capture Incredible Moments via the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge
Nowadays, every place we visit needs to have something that’s considered “Instagrammable,” and if you happen to be in Dallas, Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge is the place to go.

The bridge’s steel arches are a sight to behold; a must-have addition to your Instagram feed. More than the bridge itself, this famous tourist spot also allows you to capture the beauty of the magnificent Dallas skyline.

Named after heiress and philanthropist Margaret Hunt Hill, the bridge spans the Trinity River and was opened in 2012.
