North Dallas Hotel with Free Hot Breakfast and Parking
Like many places in Texas, Dallas and its surrounding metroplex can seem larger than life. The $1.2 billion Cowboys Stadium in nearby Arlington, for example, has one of the largest retractable roofs and high-definition screens in the world, according to the New York Times. But the big city is easily navigable from the Best Western Plus Dallas Hotel & Conference Center, which is close to the Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway and the North Central Expressway in North Dallas. From here, it’s an 11-mile drive to the city’s historic district and about a 30-mile drive to Cowboys Stadium.
You can enjoy french toast, biscuits and gravy, eggs, pancakes, and waffles in the Best Western’s daily complimentary hot breakfast. The rotating menu of hot dishes comes in addition to a spread of fruit, oatmeal, and pastries. The breakfast is served in the Garden Cafe, an American restaurant that also features a big lunch and dinner menu full of sandwiches, steaks, and cocktails.
After a day out sightseeing in Dallas, you can come back to the hotel’s outdoor pool and a 24-hour fitness center. The guest rooms have recently been remodeled and feature free WiFi and, beginning in January, flat-screen TVs.
Dallas: Historical Parks and Rejuvenated Urban Districts in North Texas
Though some know Dallas for the massive Cowboys Stadium (which is actually in Arlington), the city is also gaining notoriety as an enclave of arts and nature, overflowing with botanical gardens, art galleries, and live theater. Historic Main Street connects many of the city’s recently rejuvenated urban districts, as well as the popular Main Street Garden, a block-long public park surrounded by architecturally significant buildings. Locals come here to picnic on the expansive lawn or watch a movie under the moonlight in the summer and fall.
A short walk from downtown Dallas, you’ll find horse-drawn carriages clopping along brick streets in the city's historic West End district, which dates back to the 19th century. This part of the city also contains Dealey Plaza, where President Kennedy was assassinated in November 1963. At The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza housed in the former Texas School Book Depository, you can visit the spot where Lee Harvey Oswald is believed to have shot at Kennedy’s presidential motorcade.
Joggers and bikers can zip through the fashionable Turtle Creek neighborhood, located about 4 miles west of downtown, via the Katy Trail, which follows an old interstate railroad. Back near downtown Dallas, the 277-acre Fair Park is the location of North America's largest Ferris wheel and seven museums and four performing-arts centers, many of which are inside art-deco buildings built for the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition.
