One fully appreciates the ‘Everything is bigger in Texas’ motto
after experiencing DFW, particularly for its grand shopping
and magnificent selection of cuisines. According to the Texas
Restaurant Association, more than 6,000 restaurants are
serving up dishes in Dallas.
In fact, it offers more restaurants per person than New York City.
Whether it’s TexMex, southwestern-style, barbecue, cowboy
cuisine, French or Asian fusion, DFW offers you a variety you
won’t forget and the perfect accompanying beverage to boot.
The only service DFW dishes up better than food is its retail
industry, giving shoppers an endless list of high-end, vintage,
contemporary and every-thing-in-between shopping venues.
DFW is a shopping Mecca. The Metroplex boasts more shopping
centers per capita than any other U.S. city. Not only is Dallas
home to the internationally recognized specialty store Neiman
Marcus and retail giant JC Penney, but it is also the site of Amer-
ica’s oldest shopping center, Highland Park Village, developed
in 1931. Another fun fact offered by the Dallas Convention and
Visitors Bureau: North Park Center was the first covered shop-
ping mall in the country and today features the largest-grossing
Dillard’s and Neiman Marcus stores in the nation.
The following is a list of some of the must-see shopping destinations in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, listed by city. Now get out
there and discover why the Metroplex is truly a shopper’s paradise.
