Dallas City Guide
In 1979, when I graduated from college and came to Dallas, the city was basically known as the home of the Dallas Cowboys, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, and the television show Dallas. Dallas is a retail mecca, and I’m not just referring to the luxurious Highland Park Village or NorthPark Center, which sells some of the world’s finest clothes. What’s more, city officials are determined to bring green space to downtown—an idea that seemed unfathomable just a decade ago. (There are already 160 miles of trails, making Dallas the most bike-accessible city in the state.) Dallas, which used to be characterized as a city dominated by an all-male, all-white power establishment, is thriving with diversity.texasmonthly.com

Texas’ Route 67 Is Route 66 Without the Cheap Souvenirs
Texas’ Route 67 Is Route 66 Without the Cheap Souvenirs Get your kicks on the long and winding road from Texarkana to PresidioRoughly 80,000 miles of highways crisscross Texas, but few roads in this state, if any, are as beautiful or as enjoyable to drive as US 67. Originally designated in 1926 as part of the United States Numbered Highway System, Route 67 travels 1,560 miles from Presidio to Sabula, Iowa. Its northern Texas terminus is Texarkana, giving it an in-state length of nearly 640 miles. Starting in Texarkana and heading southwest, 67 meanders through the Piney Woods for a while before merging with Interstate 30 near Saltillo. No, it’s not nearly as renowned as its cousin from the same era, the famed Route 66, which runs through the Panhandle.texashighways.com
