I am planning FARRRR in advance for a conference I will be attending at the start of October. I am a native New Yawker who has never been to Dallas...in fact I have never been to Texas!
I will be staying at the Hilton Anatole on Stemmons Freeway and I will be there without a car for 4 nights. I will, however, have an entire afternoon/evening free so if there is mass transit or an easy cab ride, I can do that.
What I am looking for is anything I should not miss during my first trip to your state---I am not picky about price or type of food....only food I do not eat is beef (Steak) so steakhouses would be lost on me unless they do an amzing lamb chop.
Ideally, if there is anything in walking distance of my hotel, that would be my first choice, but as I said, I have at least one day where I can explore further out---just as long as the price of the cab would not be monumental.
Also, if there are any food gifts that I should look for to bring back with me, pass them along too!
