Dallas is a great city if you love sports. We have FOUR professional teams (that I know of). Basketball, football, baseball, hockey...dunno what happened to our soccer team (you guys still out there?) Ok, they're still with us.
Or take in something new like arena football. I havent been to a game but I hear theyre a blast. What more could a fanatic really ask for? I personally think that baseball and NHL games are the best. If you really dont mind the heat but dont feel like baseball, go bet on the ponies at Lone Star Park in Grand Prarie. They host Thoroughbred and Quarterhorse racing depending on the season. Besides the lottery, its the only legal gambling in the state. If youre more into horsepower of the automotive kind check out Texas Motor Speedway which hosts several NASCAR events each year. Dont forget your protective earplugs for this venue.
Equipment: If you need tickets, theres quite a few places to get them, either directly or through a agent like Texas Tickets:
Tony should treat you well, he's in with a lot of good people in the local scene, he comes highly recommended.
Or try ticket finders use:
They have online ordering services. Enjoy!
Football, basketball, baseball, hockey and soccer are what Dallas is known for..
