If sports aren’t quite your thing, you’ll still have plenty of options. The Southside Ballroom, Billy Bob’s, the House of Blues and Texas Live! Are just a few of the iconic venues that DFW has to offer. And it’s not just Dallas — Fort Worth hosts the iconic Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo every year and boasts venues like Bass Hall.
