I am going to be in Dallas for 5 days (Feb 27th - Mar 1st) although I will only really have about two full days to sightsee.
My hotel is by DFW and I will have a rental car.
I'd like to get a "real Texas" experience (if possible) while I am in Dallas. The only thing I have on my list of things to do is Dealey Plaza/TSBD as I am a huge history buff.
I will be traveling with my wife and 1 year old daughter so any sort of night life is pretty much out of the picture.
I looked at the three day trip suggestion and while some of that stuff looks cool, we are not really into art.
Can you provide me with some suggestions? We'd like to eat at a "real Texan" BBQ or steak joint. And I am talking one of those places that you see on King of the Hill (72 oz. steaks etc... if those really exist).
Also, is there any desert or mountains or wilderness within a reasonable drive of Dallas?
I know this may be a stretch but any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
