Hotels Near The Cotton Bowl Stadium
A short car ride from The Kimpton Pittman Hotel , the 277-acre Fair Park is home to a diverse array of treasures. Built in 1936 and featuring the largest collection of Art Deco buildings in the country, discover cultural institutions such as the African American Museum and Texas Discovery Gardens. Then, look up, you can’t miss the Texas Star Ferris wheel soaring over 20 stories high (remember, we like things big in Texas). Of course, the Cotton Bowl Stadium hosts its famed namesake football game where home team University of Texas plays its rival University of Oklahoma. Come fall, the 3-week Texas State Fair is basecamp to carnival rides, games, livestock competitions and countless venues for live music, food and drink.
