Several major interstate highways cut through the heart of Dallas, making it easy to get around. The Trinity River runs through the city, and its riverbanks are lined with 50 feet (15 m) high earthen levees to protect against flooding. Historically, the river was little more than a drainage ditch, but the city's shift toward a postindustrial society prompted public outcry and the construction of the Trinity River Project in 1908. The project is transforming the river into an urban park and recreation area.

One of the top sights is the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, a huge edifice that looks like a giant cube resting above a water garden. The unusual edifice houses 11 exhibit halls, where you can feel the force of an earthquake, create music in a sound studio and smell Blackland Prairie beeswax.
