Dallas sprawls across the northern Texas plain, and its suburbs sprawl even farther. Loop Interstate 635 (also called the LBJ Freeway), I-20, I-30, I-35 and the President George Bush Turnpike are a few of the major highways that connect the various suburbs in and around Dallas. From the busy North Central Expressway to the congested Dallas North Tollway, driving around Dallas County presents challenges during rush hours, but it is worth the effort for the exciting sights and activities offered.   Click here to see the full Dallas travel guide on Travel42 »

Dallas has its southern charms, but the city's history is rooted in the spirit of the Old West—the city is full of examples of pioneers whose old-fashioned hard work created the aggressive entrepreneurial atmosphere that still exists today. In 1839, John Neely Bryan visited northern Texas where the three forks of the Trinity River intersect. The site seemed destined to be a place where trade and travel would converge—it was also on the route of the planned Preston Trail (now Preston Road), a trail that was intended to join the east and west halves of Texas.   Click here to see the full Dallas travel guide on Travel42 »
