They say getting there is half the fun. We're guessing whoever "they" are never traveled with family. We know better: Being where the fun is matters most. They also say a journey of a thousand miles begins with one small step. Maybe, but 1,000 miles from Dallas lands you in Detroit or Salt Lake City. What say we skip that second step and make Big D our destination? It's where 100 percent of the fun lives. The Dallas Observer even has a handy travel guide for fun-seekers who don't care to stray too far from home: Best of Dallas 2018®. Our readers and crack staff of fun-loving homebodies are always busy sussing out all the greatest places to eat, drink, shop and enjoy the best in nightlife and entertainment in Dallas. On Sept. 27, it all comes together in our annual special issue, which locals count on for directions to the city's hot spots and hidden gems. No need to let a staycation get you down when Best of Dallas is there to show all the things that have made Big D a destination for travelers worldwide. Make it yours. We can help. Best of all, if anyone asks you, "Are we there yet?" just say yes.

Of course, we can't get a full picture of Dallas' greatness without your help. Do us a favor and send us your nominations for our Readers' Choice Contest. This is your chance to tell us what you love about Dallas. 

The primary round of voting to nominate your favorites ends Aug. 8. Fill in your top choices, then come back to this site beginning Aug. 16 to pick the winners from your nominees for Best of Dallas® 2018.

Best of Dallas® Hits Stands September 27, 2018.
