Dallas has the best arts district in the USA. Award winning architects have spread their cutting edge designs across 19 contiguous blocks and 68 acres. These Pritzker Architecture Prize recipients helped to create a true arts destination where the buildings are as important as the arts contained within. Anchor venues include Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, Myerson Symphony Center, Winspear Opera House, High School for Performing Arts, One Arts Plaza, City Peformance Hall, Wyly Theatre, and Crow Collection of Asian Art. Once you are in the district it is a short walk between the venues, or you can take a ride on the "Art Cart" for a more streamlined experience.
Adjacent to this fabulous arts district is the new Klyde Warren Park. Opening in late 2012, the park will cover a sunken highway and offer more than 5 acres of public parks, dining and entertainment spaces.
Together, the Dallas Arts District and new Klyde Warren Park offer a true destination in Dallas that is a must see on your list.
