The updated edition of this Marmac Guide includes Dallas’s surrounding cities of Fort Worth, Plano, Garland, Irving, and Richardson. With more shopping centers per capita than any other major U.S. city, Dallas hosts more than 13 million visitors annually. Whether they are shopping, sightseeing, going to sporting events, or attending one of the city’s three thousand conventions, most of these guests enjoy their time in what is still one of the friendliest states in the country.
Providing valuable information for tourists and students, this handy reference includes information about special events from traditional holiday celebrations to local festivals, cattle drives, parades, marathons, and rodeos. It not only gives valuable contact information, but it also provides descriptions of local establishments and tips for using the spotty transportation system. New residents will appreciate the introduction to Dallas living including a geographical profile, a people profile, and facts about the education, political, and healthcare systems. Making the most of time spent in the Big D is easy with the included maps of Metropolitan Dallas and Downtown Dallas, and a self-guided Downtown Walking Tour.
