State Fair of Texas

Tel: 214 565 9931's insider take:

Built for the 1936 Texas Centennial, this 300-acre complex of pavilions, pools, and esplanades is the world's largest collection of Art Deco architecture, culminating in the soaring, seven-story blue-tile portico of the Hall of State. Fair Park's nine museums include the African American Museum, the Women's Museum, and the Museum of Nature & Science (with planetarium and IMAX theater). But the real show, from late September to late October, is the annual State Fair of Texas. The Fair is timeless Texana with livestock competitions; a vast, diet-busting food court (where anything that can conceivably be fried is); a sprawling midway; acres of exhibits ranging from prize-winning preserves to imported autos; and official greetings from Big Tex, a 52-foot-tall talking cowboy mannequin.
