Travel Channel notes that shopping in Dallas can be an extreme sport. We’re not sure what that means, but we’re both proud and ashamed of our love for shopping here. From being home to Neiman Marcus’s flagship store on Main St. (right down the street from the Westin) to the nation’s first shopping center at Highland Park Village, there’s a lot of opportunities to burn a hole in your wallet here in the Big D.

Maybe not all luxury, but it’s a leap down the rabbit hole for sure:
