For more Texas culture there's the Dallas Symphony, Dallas Opera, Billy Bob's Texas and the great State Fair of Texas in Dallas' Fair Park every fall.

On the wild side you'll find the Dallas Zoo, Fort Worth Botanical Gardens, Dallas Arboretum, Dallas Nature Center and dozens of nature reserves in the Metroplex.
