Dallas, one of the fastest growing cities in the US is one that you may seem surprised to find on a to-visit list, but is definitely worth a weekend getaway or even a week-long vacation. An amalgamation of people from around the world and extremely welcoming locals, Dallas gives you a variety of gems to treasure.
From the famous Tex-Mex and barbecue unique to the state, to the upcoming, thriving art scene. From the acres of parks and outdoorsy things to do, to the vibrant night life and live music scene ranging from Jazz and Blues to Country. The city also has a lot of Latino influence, and is home to the Texas State Fair which is a great place to have an authentic Dallas experience.
Needless to say, there’s a huge number of reasons (with a lot of variety in them, too) that you should be putting Dallas on your list of cities you wish to visit. And if you’re a backpacker, you’d be pleased to know it’s an extremely affordable city to enjoy your time in.
But, that said, the hostel biz in the city is supremely underdeveloped, which is strange consider they have a lot of happening areas that could do well with a hostel around! Nonetheless, over the past few years, a couple of hostels have popped up in and around Dallas, and if you’re having trouble looking for them, we’ve listed them right here for you!
