This park has lifesize bulls as it would look like during a cattle russle. Behind it is an old cemetery that has stone dating back to 1823 and up that lived in the area. A historical place that will always remember the people of the...More
We’re a young couple from Canada in Texas for the first time.
This is a super cool spot to come and chill for about half an hour.
Great pictures. I think this area is super nice and I’m really happy I got to see it...More
I loved this place. My boys loved the video I took walking through the cows. I don’t know if there was more to this plaza than the statues and water features, but it’s worth the trip to walk through the cows alone.
Stayed in hotel right by the Pioneer Plaza, wasn’ Sure what to expect but it was quite amazing, lots of the bronze statues and with incredible detail, took lots of pictures and even though by road was a little piece of quite in downtown. Definatetly...More
The Pioneer Plaza in Dallas is very interesting to see. Sculptures of about thirty longhorn steer on a cattle drive in this downtown park. Well executed and shows lots of movement and drama of a cattle drive.
This place is a beautiful spot that honors the tradition and culture of Texas, It has early period graveyards from the 1800's and the magnificent sculptures of the cattle drive. Great place for photos also. Specially during spring and summer when the nature around it...More

Thanks Poodleone for your reply, I hope you can find this as I'm not that hot on computers.. We decided to stay at the Hotel Lawrence in Houston Street as it was very reasonably priced, down town near things we want to see, has a shuttle service which takes you to with in a 3 mile radius from the hotel & is accross the road from Dart. As I said earlier hopefully we won't be spending a lot of time in our hotel as we want to see as much as we can. How would be the best way to get to...More
First time to Dallas (10 Replies)
Hi, We are 2 females coming to USA in November and will be making a stop in Dallas for two days. I was wondering if anyone could help us with a few questions: Is the bus station (greyhound) in Dallas safe? How far away is it from the Amtrak station? Are there any areas we should avoid? Are the Pioneer Plaza Cattle Drive and the Mary Kay Cosmetics worth visits?

The bus station is as safe as any other downtown big city station- be alert and aware of your surroundings. Dallas has a fairly large homeless population which makes some people uncomfortable since you may get asked for money by panhandlers. Just know where you are going and keep walking. The Greyhound station is less than a half mile from the Amtrak terminal at Union Station. The Pioneer Plaza Cattle Drive statues are interesting but not much of a destination in and of themselves....More

That's a pretty extensive list covering many vastly different interest genres. Maybe if you looked into each one to see if it's something that you'd really like to spend time doing... one moreso than another, ultimately culling the list down some.
