NBA Basketball Arena Review - American Airlines Center
They say that everything is bigger in Texas. No place is that more applicable than when you are talking about the American Airlines Center in the heart of urban Dallas. Home to the Dallas Mavericks, the American Airlines Center is able to hold up to 20,000 screaming fans for any of the NBA games that it hosts. With League MVP Dirk Nowitzki leading the way, the Mavericks have become one of the most dominant teams in the Western Conference. Their high-scoring brand of basketball makes for a very exciting experience, and you can really feel the intensity in the arena once you set foot inside.

One of the more notable aspects of the arena that you will notice immediately is how well you can see from the north and south ends of the building. With retractable seating in place, the sightlines are incredible allowing you to see your favorite NBA superstars play their world-class brand of pro basketball. There are also four lobbies located throughout the American Airlines Center. Each of these lobbies offers a different look at the city of Dallas and the beauty that is its breathtaking skyline. The arena is also home to the first ever 1080p high definition video system, which consists of a large video screen on the scoreboard along with two other high definition screens that cover the walls on the upper ends of the building.

Are you Planning a Sports Themed Wedding?

Local mass transit in Dallas offers several simple options for getting to the American Airlines Center on game day.  NBA fans will find that the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) is very easy to use.  To get to the Arena, take the TRE to Victory Station which is located right next door to the American Airlines Center. There are also several public bus routes that can take you right to the building if you prefer to take a bus.  If you're planning to drive to the arena for a Dallas Mavericks game, you'll find that the venue is easily reached from the I-35 Highway, and it is located just north of the Central Business District.  Plenty of parking options are available in the parking lots located adjacent to the Arena. 

For game day eats, Jack Daniel's Old No. 7 is conveniently located inside American Airlines Center and serves everything from burgers hot off the grille to specialty items that change on a nightly basis. Because it has the Jack Daniel's name on it, you know that there are also plenty of great drinks available no matter what you decide to order. For Platinum Club members, there is also the Dump Lounge located on the Platinum Level serving a multitude of specialty food and drink options throughout the evening. With leather furniture and Persian rugs, the decadence of Dump Lounge has to be seen to be believed.

Craft is one of the local restaurants that presents unmatched beauty in terms of the style and atmosphere along with an impressive menu. The low-key atmosphere might be just what you need following a big game of Mavericks basketball. Another restaurant you might try that offers more of the standard restaurant experience is Victory Tavern. Don't let the name fool you, this restaurant has a nice dining room where you can sit and relax either before or after the game. For socializing post-game, the Lizard Lounge is one place you definitely want to visit.  Lizard Lounge features great music and drink specials allowing patrons to spend the whole evening enjoying the local Dallas nightlife without breaking the bank.  If it's live music you're looking for, go to the Curtain Club on Main St. in the heart of Dallas. With popular bands performing regularly, the Curtain Club presents that raucous Texas atmosphere in the heart of the downtown area. 

Dallas Segway Tours are just one of the many points of interest that you might check out before leaving this slice of wild west Americana. These Tours offer a unique look at downtown Dallas and run twice a day. The Sixth Floor Museum located inside the Dallas County Administration Building is right on the same site where Oswald fired the shot assassinating President John F. Kennedy. The museum has dedicated most of its space to honoring the life and times of JFK with its memorabilia.

The Dallas Mavericks have been one of the more consistent teams in the NBA. Always in contention for a Playoff spot, the Mavericks give their fans their money's worth and much more. For a run and gun offense, there is no arena better suited for Dallas Mavericks basketball than the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Where To Stay:
Find a hotel in the downtown area of Dallas, Texas becasue nothing beats the sights, sounds and attractions of downtown Dallas.  I stayed at the Hyatt Regency Dallas which was a stone's throw from Dealey Plaza.  I'd also suggest The Magnolia Hotel, The Radisson or the Adolphus Hotels.
