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

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.

#localgem Downtown Dallas at night. Day 17 - A stop in Dallas. The museum on the 6th floor of this building is worth visiting. It powerfully documents Kennedys rise as well as his assisanation.

You can check out games of all varieties to play in the park for free and there are always food trucks. Great place for fans of flight. Artwork in Dallas, TX. State of the art architecture of the Perot Museum, it beautifully integrates between the natural environment and the urban structure in its design. Scardello is a superb cheese shop. You can taste anything before you buy it, they have amazing sandwiches, and on Thursday nights they do tasting classes. This was the tasting board at the Afternoon tea at the Adolphus in Dallas. I've been twice and it's worth it every time. #lifeatexpedia #foodie I especially enjoyed the outdoor water exhibits... The Perot Museum has this awesome track where you can select who you want to race ( choice of runners, cheetah, tylosaurus, t-Rex etc. the kids simply LOVE it! It's simple and kids get the relative speed in comparison to themselves.
