There's a lot to see and do, so I'll just mention a few destinations that come to mind:

DOWNTOWN:

Sixth Floor Museum (building from which JFK was alledgedly shot) Home | The Sixth Floor Museum

Old Red Courthouse (Dallas County History museum) home

Adolphus Hotel (1912 architectural gem) Downtown Dallas Hotels- The Adolphus- Dallas Luxury Hotel, Texas, TX#

Neiman Marcus (the flagship Neiman Marcus store) Neiman Marcus - Fashion's premier designers, plus beauty's best brands

Dallas Arts District (museums, symphony hall, opera house, theater) Dallas Arts District

Fine dining restaurants located Downtown:

Stephen Pyles Stephan Pyles Restaurant | Home (http://www.stephanpyles.com/index.asp - broken link)
Wolfgang Puck's 560 at Reunion Tower http://www.wolfgangpuck.com/meet-wol...staurant/47007
Charlie Palmer at the Joule CharliePalmer : Charlie Palmer at The Joule

You can ride DART Rail to get to any of these places Downtown. DART.org - DART Rail System Map


UPTOWN:

Dallas' premier urban 'hood with lots of hotels, restaurants, bars, shopping, theater all in a walkable environment. Uptown Dallas - Main . You can take the free McKinney Ave. Trolley to get a good overview of Uptown MATA - McKinney AvenueTransit Authority - M-Line.


OTHER CENTRAL DALLAS DESTINATIONS:

Turtle Creek Blvd: Arguably one of the most scenic thoroughfares in Dallas. Home Page - Join Us Today!

Katy Trail: Formerly a railroad line, now an urban path for jogging, bicycles, rollerblading, etc... through the heart of Dallas. Friends of Katy Trail:

Fair Park: Site of the nation's largest state fair every Fall. Largest collection of Art Deco Exposition Bldgs. in the world. Numerous museums and a Music Hall are located here. Accessible by DART Rail. Fair Park

Bishop Arts District: Early 20th century shopping district revitalized over the last decade. Artsy & bohemian. Numerous non-chain restaurants, vintage shops, art galleries located in historic neighborhood just a couple miles SW of Downtown Dallas. Bishop Arts District :: Home

NorthPark Center: The term shopping center does not do this place justice. It's a temple of luxury retail with numerous restaurants and 15 screen AMC theater. NorthPark Center - The Premier Shopping and Dining Center in Dallas

Deep Ellum: Early 20th century warehouse district just east of Downtown. Now a premier location for live music, eclectic bars, restaurants, shops & galleries. Deep Ellum - Dallas, Texas

Knox-Henderson: Commercial street 2 miles north of Downtown, crosses Central Expressway (US75). The west side is called Knox Street and has the more upscale, albeit conventional, stores along with many restaurants (mostly non-chain). The east side is called Henderson Ave. and has many more restaurants (almost all non-chain), bars, antique shops and interesting shops. Knox/Henderson Guide on Citysearch®

That list should get you started. Welcome to Dallas!
