During the winter break I went on a holiday to Dallas, Texas. Being an international student, it was my first time visiting the second-largest state of the U.S.

I did various activities which gave me a truly American experience. One of the most memorable experiences was my visit to AT&T Stadium which is in Arlington, Texas. It is situated 21 miles away from Dallas, it is the home ground of the very famous Texas Cowboys which is a professional American football team. It looks like a spaceship and has a sitting capacity of more than 100,000 fans .You can book a VIP tour of the stadium one week prior to your visit. Beginning at the Main Club your tour stops include a private suite, the print media press box, the Cotton Bowl Office vestibule, and the Dr Pepper Star Bar or the Ford Motor Company Fountain. After you’ve seen these areas, your guide will take you down to the event level where you’ll see all of the stops on the Self-Guided Tour, including the field, the Miller Lite Club, the postgame interview room and both the Dallas Cowboys and Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders locker rooms. Your tour will end in the AT&T Stadium Pro Shop.

I also went on a drive through Dallas downtown and I was awestruck by the beautiful skyline. One particular building that was standing apart from all the buildings was the Reunion Tower. The Reunion tower also has an observatory for tourists to take photos and enjoy the skyline. One more interesting fact that I got to know from the locals was that the tragic site where the assassination of President John F. Kennedy happened was just 1000 feet from the Reunion tower.

Before my trip was going to end, I visited the National Cowgirl Museum. It showcased the wild west atmosphere and I got to know that Dallas Fort Worth was once an important trading point for cowboys, acting as a key leg on the Chisholm Trail. After that, I went to see the Christmas lights in the suburbs of Dallas. It was truly a magnificent experience. I really enjoyed the trip and I learned a lot about the history of Texas’s culture. Anybody who wants to learn more about Texas’s deep heritage should definitely visit Dallas.
