You can still get a full (if not better) experience of Dallas when you can't afford to pay for all the sights, tours and museums. Be clever about the way you see the city by visiting places like the outdoor beauty of White Rock Lake
or Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens
. You should also visit the Old Red Courthouse
- built in 1892 - for a truly historical outing that'll give you a few interesting stories to tell.
