Dallas - Cotton Bowl Trip Tips

The 2011 Cotton Bowl will be held on January 7, 2011 in Dallas. It'll be LSU vs Texas. Here's our LSU vs Texas A&M Cotton Bowl Preview.

Dallas is a big time city in a big time state, and football is religion there. So it is quite possible that during your entire time there you may never choose to do anything that does not revolve around the pigskin, your college bowl game, the Dallas Cowboys, or Texas Stadium. The Cotton Bowl itself is one of college football’s longest standing bowl games. However, if you are travelling with a family perhaps, or even just a bunch of friends, and you actually need a break from the game, there are a few places in particular that are worth checking out.

Any history buffs absolutely have to check out The Sixth Floor Museum. This museum is dedicated to the life, times, and death of President John F. Kennedy, and is located in the 6th and 7th floors of the building that, in 1963, was known as the Texas School Book Depository. This is the building from which President Kennedy was shot and killed during a motorcade. The museum, which features self-guided tours, offers a fascinating look inside the scene of the assassination. Its exhibitions are regularly updated, and typically, over 325,000 visitors annually visit the museum http://www.jfk.org/.

If you are looking for something a little more lighthearted during your trip to Texas, one must see is the Dallas World Aquarium. The Dallas World Aquarium opened to the public in 1992, and in the interest of historical preservation, was placed in a North Griffin Street building that was built in 1924 and had been occupied for a number of businesses for nearly 60 years. The Aquarium’s exhibits frequently change, and the facility is constantly expanding (adjacent buildings are in the process of being purchased for future expansion). The museum is open from 10:00am to 5:00pm daily (closed on Thanksgiving & Christmas) http://www.dwazoo.com/d/.

If, after this long day of sightseeing, you find yourself suffering through sports (and beer) withdrawal, then make a beeline over to Frankie’s Sports Bar and Grill. Frankie’s, which opened in 2000, has been regularly voted as Dallas’s best sports bar. It's food has widely been hailed as a significant step up over what most places would refer to as sports bar food, featuring a creative list of burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, and a wide range of appetizers. The 30+ HDTV plasma screens throughout the establishment ensure that there will not be a bad seat in the house. And let’s not forget the 20 beers on tap, and the 50+ bottled selections as well. http://www.frankiesbar.com/

If you are hungry, but looking for something a little different than a sports bar, you could do a lot worse than Keller's Drive In, an old time Drive-In located on the Northwest Highway. Pull up to the well lit establishment right in front of a menu. Decide what you want. Once you are ready, turn on your headlights. That’s the queue to the folks inside you want your food. They'll take your order over a speaker system, and only a few short minutes later, to your car will come an old school tray to be fashioned right to your car. The burgers are great, the fries are great, and the old time, drive through experience is one that many modern families have never enjoyed. http://dallas.citysearch.com/profile/9620189
