Compare Car rental in Dallas
Cheekily referred to as "The Big D", Dallas is a mammoth metroplex built on oil money in northern Texas. Home of the legendary Dallas Cowboys, the city has also given birth to other notable personalities including George W. and Laura Bush, Norah Jones, and Meat Loaf. Dallas is also known for its relentless entrepreneurial spirit, as the home base of several franchises including Texas de Brazil, Bob’s Steak and Chophouse. Dallas is technically a part of a ginormous Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex encompassing 13 counties, commonly called DFW.
This big ‘n’ bold city is a fun place to spend a few days, and is a good place to start off a Texas road trip. You can book your Dallas car rental in advance with Enjoy Travel, with prices starting at just $35.11 USD per day.
Guide to Dallas
The summers get pretty dang hot so hydrate with a vengeance. The warmest month is July, with an average daily temperature of 85.3°F (29.6°C). However, the rest of the year is extremely pleasant and perfect for outdoor activities.
Since Dallas is so huge, exploring particular neighborhoods might be a better idea during short trips. If you want to be close to nature, head Uptown for parks, urban green spaces, and the 237-mile Katy Trail. Lakewood, as the name suggests, offers you the opportunity to paddleboat and then crack open a cold beer by the shores of White Rock Lake. Deep Ellum features rustic architecture combined with excellent restaurants and bars. And for a fun night out, Oak Lawn is your best bet.
What to do in Dallas
Start your day with a brisk walk at the Klyde Warren Park in the heart of downtown before going on a museum crawl. Dallas' museums are top-notch, be it the kid-friendly Perot Science Museum or more adult-appropriate Sixth Floor Museum. If you're most inclined towards art, then head over to the Dallas Museum of Art for fun and interactive exhibits or amble around the Bishop Arts District which has amazing public art as well as an array of independent boutiques.
Sports & music in Dallas
If you're a sports fan, then you have access to tickets to see legendary teams play, such as the Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Stars, and the Texas Rangers from nearby Arlington. As dusk falls, check out some of the city's best live music venues in Deep Ellum such as The Bomb Factory.
Eating out in Dallas
Dallas' food scene is famous for its steakhouses and TexMex. Head over to Smokey John's Bar-B-Que for some classic Texan grilled meat with a side of mac-n-cheese or collard greens. For your fix of Tex-Mex, Veracruz Tacos will have you slurping their salsa. And for an unusual-yet-upscale dining experience, head over to Fearing's Restaurant located inside the Ritz Carlton hotel to try their East Texas smoked rattlesnake and corn fritters with venom sauce.

Public transportation in Dallas
The DART rail connects the airport (Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport) with some of the major districts. Inside the city, the Dallas Streetcar connects Oak Cliff and Bishop Arts to Dallas Union Station in Downtown.
Driving in Dallas
Most Dallas residents drive as the public transit still lags behind in connecting the various parts of this huge city effectively. Dallas is a car city! Therefore, renting a car would be the most convenient way of getting around. However, despite the many highways crisscrossing across the metroplex, traffic can get intense. Avoid the rush hours (6.30-9am and 4-6.30pm) if you can.
