With its retractable, power roof and larger-than-life HD monitors suspended over the field, one must-do activity is to visit Cowboys Stadium. Even those who aren’t necessarily sports fanatics will appreciate the architecture, creativity and detail that was put into the powerhouse landmark. Of course, the best way to experience “Jerry World” would be to watch the Dallas Cowboys in a gridiron battle, but a number of concerts take place there as well.
On most days, Cowboys Stadium is open to the public for walking tours. Self-guided tours are $17.50 for adults, $14.50 for children and allow access the Cowboys and Cowboys Cheerleaders locker rooms, the Miller Lite Club and the post-game interview room. VIP guided tours are about $10 more, and offer an in-depth experience that includes checking out a private suite, the print media press box, the Cotton Bowl office vestibule, and the Dr Pepper Star Bar or the Ford Motor Company Fountain. By far, the highlight of both tours is the opportunity to venture onto the playing field to toss around the pigskin and take a photo on the famed blue star.
An interesting fact is that the stadium is filled with striking artwork. Both a guided tour and audio tour are available to take in the complete Dallas Cowboys Stadium experience.
If you haven’t been to Dallas and you're thinking about what the one must-do activity is, allow me to inform you. The most important thing to see involves one of the greatest tragedies in American history: the assassination of President Kennedy. Most people who are Dallas natives can easily tell you that the assassination site is the place to go — especially if you’re a history buff.
The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is where you can step back in time and learn about one of the most important events of our nation’s past. Say “Dallas,” and many people’s first thought is still “President Kennedy.” The Sixth Floor is a permanent exhibit featuring films, photographs and artifacts that explore President Kennedy's life and legacy.
