With the fourth largest metropolitan area in the United States, Dallas is proof that everything’s bigger in Texas. The city grew from a center of farming, oil and cotton production into the economic center of the entire Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington Metropolitan area, which has a total population of over 7 million people.
But there’s more to Dallas than big oil and big business. Dallas is also known for its fine cuisine: everything from Tex-Mex to authentic Mexican and classic Texas barbecue. There’s also a thriving arts district in the north end of Downtown, and many museums and parks to enjoy. Metropolitan Shuttle makes it easy to rent a bus in Dallas and see the sights in air-conditioned luxury.
Perot Museum of Nature and Science
Named for Margot and Ross Perot, this 180,000 foot facility features eleven exhibit halls and six labs for educating visitors about natural history and science. The museum is a perfect destination for a school bus rental and a day’s outing. On the lower level is the Moody Family Children’s Museum, in which kids can climb through a playground comprised of miniature Dallas landmarks and watch the terrarium animals get fed; a sports exhibit where museum goers can race against virtual projections of famous athletes and even a 3D cheetah; and even a learning lab from Texas Instruments where visitors can create music and build robots.
Dallas World Aquarium
At the West End Historic District of downtown Dallas, you’ll find the Dallas World Aquarium, a facility dedicated to conserving many threatened and endangered animals. First opened in 1992, the aquarium features an artificial reproduction of the Orinoco rainforest, complete with an aviary. Visitors can see such animals as the scarlet ibis, toucans, three toed sloths, electric eels, poison dart frogs, and Orinoco crocodiles. The sea life lives in the lower level of the aquarium where museum goers can take in sea anemones, jellyfish, and fish from all over the planet, including Japan, Indonesia, Fiji, and Indonesia. Secure a party bus rental in Dallas and make a day’s adventure of the World Aquarium.
The 15th tallest building in Dallas, the Reunion observation tower is one of the most iconic structures in the city. From 561 feet up, visitors can enjoy a spectacular view of the city and enjoy a meal at Five Sixty, Wolfgang Puck’s dining establishment on the restaurant level. There’s also an interactive digital experience where visitors can learn about Dallas and look through high-def cameras. For those interested in the history of the Kennedy assassination, the Reunion Tower is only a thousand feet from Dealey Plaza. Your group can charter a bus in Dallas and see the entire area in ease and comfort.
Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens
On the southeastern shore of White Rock Lake is the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, which features 66 acres of incredible views for nature lovers of any kind. There are nineteen named gardens inside the Arboretum, from the Margaret Elisabeth Jonsson Color Garden (with 2,0000 varieties of azaleas) to the Nancy Rutchik Red Maple Mill (with eighty varieties of Japanese maple trees arranged over two acres), and many more. Each named garden has its own specific theme, array of colors, and variety of plant life, making repeat visits to the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens a must. There’s also a Children’s Adventure Garden, which offers activities and educational programs to help teach life and earth sciences to young visitors.
