A Coloradan Judging a Texan City
This was my meeting point for me and my friend Phil, a Dutch guy I had met in New Orleans, the plan was to meet up and travel together west, not party, not go shopping or touring so Dallas was the choice so we wouldn't get sidetracked from our journey. Nothing outstanding from an average American city. There's a really cool country bar named Cowboy's Red River, two-stepping and good country music, an American experience in one of the states that marks the border of the American West.
Insider Tip:If staying at Wild Wild West Hostel, it is convenient to have a car, as a round trip in a taxi can be in the neighborhood of $50 (USD) as in Irving, TX, there's really nothing to peek a backpacker's interest. Though not much to see in Dallas or Fort Worth, having your own transportation will give you the mobility and range you'll need to make your stay more enjoyable and not get bored.
