There are so many different places to go and things to see and do in the gigantic state of Texas that it is hard to narrow down a few dozen items for a two-week vacation! But if the Dallas area is on your itinerary, and you have avid football fans in your car, you may find it well worth your while to include the Dallas Cowboy Stadium in your day trip plans.
This is a huge, rich, lavish and magnificent arena that you may want to see just for the facility itself (though of course, the game is important, too). It was inaugurated in 2009, and hosts all kinds of sporting events, as well as the Dallas Cowboys. You can catch basketball games here, boxing, and even a rodeo, depending on when you plan your arrival. What’s more, the arena often also hosts grandstanding concert events from popular and well known bands, which may be all the more reason to check out the calendar and plan your trip well.
Of course, vacations in Texas should include a wide array of events and activities for the entire family, but if Dad (or Mom) and the kids prefer football to boxing or music, you should plan your trip to take in a home practice or game for the Dallas Cowboys, or even check out a cheerleader exhibition. Since opening in 2009, the Dallas Cowboys Stadium has hosted some of the premium events in football, including the 2011 Super Bowl. Other major sporting events have taken place there, as well, such as the Big-12 Conference, the Cotton Bowl, and for basketball lovers, the NBA All-Star Game.
The amenities of the Cowboys Stadium surpass those of most similar arenas, and it is well worth checking out as you plan vacations in Texas. Dallas and the surrounding area, featuring local towns such as Grand Prairie, offer a host of other exciting opportunities for outdoor fun and adventure, from camping and hiking to lakes and boats, museums, theme parks, festivals, science, art, and more.
If you are planning one of the best vacations in Texas you could ever possibly imagine, coming to the Dallas area should definitely be on your itinerary. There is guaranteed to be something here for absolutely everyone in your family.
