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 6000 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. A few fun facts offered by the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau is enough to get shoppers revved up to explore: Highland Park Village Shopping Center developed in 1931 holds the distinction of being the first shopping center in America. North Park Center was the first covered shopping mall in the country. Today it features the largest-grossing Dillard’s and Neiman Marcus stores in the nation.

So get out and see why DFW may be the King of Big in Texas. As for dining and shopping there’s no place that offers variety like the DFW Metroplex.
