Technically I've been to Dallas before, but that time I literally flew in, got whisked off to see a hockey game, had dinner, and flew out—didn't see a damn thing. A shame, too, because now I realize how much I had missed. I would love to spend more time exploring the state of Texas in the future.
And I know I say this a lot, but Texans really are the warmest, friendliest people I've ever met anywhere. I mean they are not just friendly, they are friendly. It's almost too much for a jaded New Yorker like me to bear.
