Things To Do In...DallasThursday, March 29, 2007 | 10:20 AM
Since Texas Stadium is technically in Irving, and Irving is technically between Dallas and Fort Worth, you can choose between two very different cities. Check out some of the top "Things To Do" in Dallas. And a special thanks to Racer X readers Lance and Mitch Youts.
The Wrangler at Oak Hill ATV MX National
Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza
Pingree adds this:
Downtown, 50-story Reunion Tower affords a bird’s-eye view of the modern cityscape, while the nostalgic McKinney Avenue Trolley gives riders an old-fashioned lift uptown. And in the Downtown Arts District, originals by Monet and Matisse are on display at the Dallas Museum of Art.
Of course, if your wife or girlfriend is a gold-digging tramp then your trip to Dallas will include a stop at Neiman Marcus. The spendy department store is based in Dallas and there’s a pretty good chance you’ll run into one of the Dallas Cowboys wives there.
Or you can lose a limb in Dallas… at Speed Zone! This place is insane.
Go head-to-head against your friends in 300-horsepower dragsters. You’ll fire from the line, shifting and accelerating your way from 0-70 MPH in 3.5 heart-pounding seconds!
All the thrills of racing an NHRA Top Fuel Dragster, plus head-to-head competition. That’s right, six heart-stopping, propane-fueled, 300 horsepower racing machines that go 0-70 in less than 3.5 seconds and pull 2.5 G-forces. The trick is to be on the accelerator when the third yellow light goes out. If you wait to see the green light, you’re toast.
There’s also slick track and Formula one-style courses to choose from. Check them out at Speedzone.
Dallas Mavericks vs. New York Knicks
Last week some of the guys—DV12, Fubar, Big Dave Brozik—saw the Heat place the Pacers; this week offers a chance to see the NBA’s best team in the Mavs. But tickets are tough to get in that town!
