In Texas, where everything is big, there’s one place that’s bigger than them all—Dallas. From the Cotton Bowl, one of the country’s largest stadiums to Big Tex, the 55 foot tall mascot of the State Fair of Texas, from the Dallas World Aquarium to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, from the 20 oz. Porterhouse steak at the Trail Dust to the Calders at the Dallas Museum of Art, they do it big in Big D. It’s a big city, too, and even more so, if you include the Fort Worth area (all a part of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex). If you’re planning a trip to DFW with a large or small group of friends of family, you don’t want the hassle of trying to navigate the traffic, find your way around or secure a place to park. There’s a better way to simply enjoy Dallas…in the comfort and luxury of a charter bus from Western Motorcoach.
Dallas on a Charter Bus—Travel Made Easy!!
Since 2010, no city in the United States has seen more population growth than Dallas. There’s a lot to draw you to this great city in East Texas.
- Arts and Culture—You could spend your entire trip in the Dallas Arts District, nearly 20 blocks large. The Dallas Museum of Art has more than 24,000 works of art, including paintings by Degas and El Greco and Rodin’s Sculptor and his Muse. The world-renowned Dallas Symphony Orchestra is just down the street from the art museum or you can catch a performance at the Dallas Black Dance Theatre.
- Historical Attractions—The most visited place by travelers to Dallas—the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, takes you back in time to November, 1963, giving you insights into the political climate at the time and showing you the sniper’s perch where law enforcement officers believe Lee Harvey Oswald shot President John F. Kennedy. There’s also the Old Red Museum, housed in the former Dallas County Courthouse building, which offers visitors a comprehensive history of Dallas and the surrounding communities. The life-sized Dallas Cattle Drive Sculptures pay homage to the city’s storied history in the livestock industry. You don’t want to miss the Cathedral Santuario de Guadalupe, the largest and oldest Catholic church in the city.
- Professional Sports—You can’t really think about Dallas without thinking about America’s team—the Dallas Cowboys. That’s right—Dallas is a football town, home to the Cotton Bowl as well. The TCU Horned Frogs also play to 50,000 fans in nearby Fort Worth. But Dallas offers something for fans of all the major sports. The Dallas Mavericks, NBA champions in 2011, play in the Victory Park neighborhood in Big D. Former Stanley Cup champions the Dallas Stars also play at the American Airlines Center in Victory Park. The Texas Rangers, who competed in the 2011 World Series, have their home games at Globe Life Park in nearby Arlington.
- Golf—Dallas is about more than spectator sports, though…bring your clubs to play some of the finest public golf courses anywhere. Stevens Park, known by locals as “Little Augusta,” was completely redesigned in 2011, has some of the most challenging holes you’ll ever play. Tierra Verde, in Arlington, is considered by many to be one of the top public courses in the Southwest—it’s also the first public golf course in the world to be designated a certified sanctuary by the Audubon Society. The Texas Star Golf Course, in Euless, is the crown jewel of public golf courses in the city and across the state of Texas, recognized by Golf Digest and Golf Weekly.
- Restaurants and shopping—When it comes to great food in Dallas, if you can imagine it, you can probably find it. Yes, there are many, many great steakhouses, Tex-Mex cantinas and BBQ joints here (beef BBQ rules in Dallas). But you’ll also find Turkish (Lezzet Café or Café Ismir) and Afghani (Nora Restaurant) cuisine, Ethiopian (Desta), Irish (Trinity Hall Irish Pub), Korean (Chosen Kalbi) and Peruvian (Nazca Kitchen) food here. For fabulous nightlife, don’t miss Deep Ellum. You can also shop until you literally drop in Dallas—it’s the home of Neiman Marcus and has shopping experiences for everyone—great antiques, chic boutiques, malls and funky neighborhood emporiums.
- Something you can’t do anywhere else—If you were a fan of the prime time soap named after Big D, you can actually tour the famous Southfork Ranch!
Why There’s No Better Way to See Dallas than by Charter Bus
With approximately 6.5 million residents, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is the 4th-largest metropolitan area in the nation. The city also has four major highways running through it.

- You’ll be able to stretch your legs—Charter buses have more room from seat to seat than any other mode of transportation, so you’ll never feel squeezed into your seat. The seats are plush and roomy, and so are the aisles, so you’ll have no problem moving around. Another bonus—you can move about the bus at your leisure—we’ll never put on the “stay seated” light.
- A charter bus won’t break your bank—There’s no more affordable way to get from here to there. With the money you save, you can bring back some treasured souvenirs of your time in D-town.
- Charter buses are good for the planet—When you travel together on a charter bus, you dramatically reduce the number of vehicles on the road, and that helps the earth.
