44 Places to Go in 2009

Thanks primarily to the Dallas Arts District, Dallas made The New York Times list of top places to go in 2009. Ranked 17th out of 44, our city sits among such notable destinations as Brazil, Rome, Cologne, Star Island and Bhutan (quite an impressive group).

The positive change happening in the Dallas Arts District is drawing a lot of national press. People are seeing something in downtown Dallas they never thought possible.

"Everything is bigger in Texas, and the Dallas art district is no exception. Billed as 'the largest urban arts district in the United States,' the 19-block area gets bigger when the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts opens Oct. 12."

We're very excited about the next few years. As things continue to vigorously expand, our neighborhood and our quality of life will be all the better for it.
