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.
