Dallas Vicinity, TX: Cowboys for Catfish and Nostalgia
Dallas’ and Fort Worth’s swinging sister towns will steal your heart away.
Feel rich at Po’ Melvin’s where a bill with Alexander Hamilton’s mug on it gets you a three-course meal–a platter of cornmeal-crusted catfish, a side of rice ‘n’ beans, some jalapeno corn bread, and a slice of pecan pie. Belly full, proceed to the Studios at Las Colinas to partake in a live special effects show and see famous “retired” costumes like Dorothy’s blue dress, Forrest Gump’s white suit, and Superman’s cape and unitard.
Move from the soundstage to the sounds of live nature at Ray Roberts Lake Pilot Point Park, a 6000-acre arena for fishing, swimming, hiking, and boating. Next, stroll the streets of the historic Grapevine district, where the local barbershop serves bottled Dr. Pepper made with real cane sugar and a working blacksmith and steam engine, operating from the town’s 100 year-old depot, make you equally nostalgic.
