Dallas is fast becoming an LGBT hotspot and the up and coming gaycation destination for all those on the spectrum. Why you may ask? Well, not only because everything is bigger in Texas (wink, wink), but because it is home to one of the biggest and most vibrant LGBT communities in the United States.
In fact, in 2014 the Oaklawn District was voted as being the number one gaybourhood in the US of Gay. They have some amazing community leaders too, like Todd Maria, who has set up an amazing rugby club, the Lost Souls.
Obviously you’re going to take the HomoCulture word for it and start planning your trip to Dallas, but what ever will you do to fill your days? Well we have some suggestions on how to make your Dallas experience one to remember.
Here are our top 3 epically awesome things to do in Dallas:
- Reunion Tower: For incredible views of the Dallas skyline, head up to the top of the iconic reunion tower. Watch the sunset over the city while the interactive display fills you with information about the city and the tower. Grab a snack at Cloud 9 café then enjoy the 360 views. Make a night of it by reserving a table at Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty restaurant on the rotating top level of the tower for a truly unforgettable experience.
- 6th Floor Museum: The 6th Floor Museum commemorates the life, death and achievements of the late President John F. Kennedy.
