A trip to Dallas really doesn’t have to be that expensive: while the average daily cost of traveling in Texas is $174, it’s cheaper to visit Dallas with an average daily cost of $103. However, there are many ways to enjoy “D-town” for even less.
1. Visit the free attractions.
Dallas has plenty of free attractions like the Dallas Museum of Art, home to one of the largest collections in the U.S. The Crow Collection of Asian Art, the African American Museum, and Fair Park are among many other free museums. Downtown Dallas is also full of free outdoor attractions from the Farmer’s Market to historical sites like Dealey Plaza and the Grassy Knoll which are where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The Pioneer Plaza Cattle Drive art installation is also popular, and across the street at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library, you can see Shakespeare’s first folio and an original print of the Declaration of Independence for free.
