For lots of reasons, millions of people visit Dallas annually, and there are numerous things to see
and do when visitors arrive. The Music Hall at Fair Park stages live theater through the Summer
Musicals, the Dallas Opera, Texas Ballet Theatre and Broadway touring companies. Sports fans
can enjoy the Dallas Mavericks and the Dallas Stars at the American Airlines Center. The Dallas
Cowboys, for the time being, are still at Texas Stadium in Irving. Music lovers have the Morton H.
Meyerson Symphony Center--home stage for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, the Turtle Creek
Chorale, the Dallas Wind Symphony, as well as band and choral festivals. Deep Ellum offers bars
and nightclubs, restaurants, retail stores and tattoo shops. The West End Marketplace, a 1911
warehouse, is now a shopping and entertainment center, with several popular restaurants where
business people meet for lunch and tourists gather at dinnertime. Dealy Plaza, the area President
Kennedy's motorcade was passing when he was killed, is visited by multitudes of people each
year. The Sixth Floor Museum, located in the old Texas Schoolbook Depository where President
Kennedy's assassin fired from a sixth floor window, now houses a multimedia museum dedicated
to his life and death.
