In Dallas, the 6th floor museum and the Kennedy assassination site require very little walking. There are great restaurants nearby in the Westend, too. Be sure you go by the convention center to see the greater than live sized cattle drive. On O'Connor in Las Colinas - just north of 114, you can see the mustang sculptures.

I love going to ft. worth. Downtown in Sundance Square the Sid Richardson museum (free) features Remington and Russell originals. There is a Thomas Kincaid gallery right across the street, if that's more to your taste. The arts district boasts great museums. You can drive through the stockyards. Again, good restaurants and if you're there at 11:30 or 4, you can see a real life cattle drive. One could also take the tarantula train from Grapevine to the Stockyards and make a whole day of it.
Go across 30 through Arlington and pass the new Cowboy stadium. You can't miss it!
Hope that helps!

OK, assuming you'll be there this summer, my first bit of advice? Stay inside, because it'll be hot out! And luckily for you, all those wealthy oil tycoons in these parts have put some of that money back into an impressive lineup up of museums and galleries (as well as some significant architectural commissions). So I'd suggest a visit to the Dallas Museum of Art or the impressive, more modern Amon Carter Museum. Both these museums offer wheelchairs on a first-come, first-serve basis, should your mother require. Another idea along the same lines, with a little less walking, would be to take in a theater, opera, or dance performance. Again, big oil bucks mean the town can attract some world-class talent.
