Being an Austinite, you won't often find me waxing on about the beauty of Dallas - a little city pride at play, I suspect. But when I was wandering in downtown Dallas and came across this scene - brought to life by both the wonderful blue hour and the colorful fountains - I was able to make an exception and go ahead and take the shot...and feel proud of it! From http://nomadicpursuits.com/ One thing you can't deny about #Texas is the beautiful #sunrises and sunsets

Not huge into Country... or Western. My take on it was positive. The food was great and I felt like the service was fabulous and the servers easy on the eyes ( BTW, that's code for Mini Takes the States 2014 Road Rally Austin to Dallas Leg:
Reunion Tower is a 561 foot observation tower in Dallas and part of the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
The tower looks like a ball on a stick and referred to as a “golf ball,” a “dandelion,” a “microphone,” and the rather crass nickname, “Dallas Phallus”.
#cinematrove - In the movies it makes an appearance as a symbol of a futuristic society in the 1980 film The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge is a bridge in #Dallas, Texas which spans the Trinity River and was built as part of the Trinity River Project. Designed by Santiago Calatrava, it is one of three such #bridges planned to be built over the Trinity; the second, the Margaret McDermott Bridge, is currently under construction. The span parallels the Continental Avenue Bridge, a walking bridge.
The bridge is named for Margaret Hunt Hill, an heiress and philanthropist.

Sit on the patio and taste the margaritas while you people watch. Bonus? Walking distance to DART if you enjoy the margaritas as much as I did. Frozen peach was my favorite. Strange to be in such a peaceful place surrounded by green and look up to see the skyscrapers. Dallas Contemporary A cold, snowy, icy, slushy, ugly day in Dallas. #Dallas Lyda Hill Gems and Minerals Hall at The Perot Museum is not to be missed! Although it's not as flashy and interactive as other exhibits, the specimens on display are just unbelievable! A docent told us that Lyda Hill herself often volunteers in the exhibit. She wasn't there when we visited but be sure to be on the lookout for her during your visit to ask her for some insider scoop on this mind boggling collection! The Grassy Knoll at Dealey Plaza. Gorgeous sunset mid Dallas Big Tex: the tall guy overlooks the entire Texas state fair in Dallas, Texas 03.09.16, Dallas Trinity Groves is a great place for dinner and an evening stroll in Dallas.

Then there's the Sixth Floor Museum with its exemplary exhibition. After googling activities in Dallas, we found our selves walking around the Thanksgiving square. Thankful for my curiosity, I couldn't walk away from this place without entering the chapel and was I grateful! Amazing feeling. When you go, make sure to lay on the floor to appreciate your view. :) Can you find the bird landing?
