You could treat this as a scavenger hunt!

Dallas is well known for its wide selection of multicultural cuisine, art districts and its historical landmarks like the Dealey Plaza. I think we can all agree that sometimes Dallas is a little predictable when it comes to the typical things to do around the city. We hope this list can surprise a couple of our readers and provide some of the unknown, secret, and maybe even literally underground spots around the Dallas Area. Here is a list of secret spots to find in Dallas... if you can.

Hidden AMC Inside Abandoned Mall
