Dallas Daze: For the Best Dallas Experience

Dallas, known for the Cowboys and for being one the largest U.S. cities not built near a body of water, is a great place not only for young professionals, but for the perfect weekend getaway!

By using the Dallas CityPASS (See the CityPASS: The Key to the City blog) and researching other places to visit, I had the ultimate Dallas experience by packing several notable attractions and a few American cuisine restaurants in my two-and-a-half-day stay!

Tourist Attractions:

Dallas Zoo – The catchy Dallas Zoo theme song still comes to my mind every time I think of this place! It was beautiful and definitely a must stop for animal lovers! (CityPASS attraction)

*Sings* “The crocodile snaps the monkeys clap, welcome to the Dallas Zoo!” LOL

Perot Museum of Nature and Science – Truly a place for the nature and science connoisseur. Discover dinosaur artifacts and explore digital interactions with earth and outer space. (CityPASS attraction)

Reunion Tower GeO-Deck – Enjoy the best view of Dallas in the sphere-shaped tower, perfect for gathering with friends or your significant other to admire the beauty in Dallas under the sunset. (CityPASS attraction)

Studio Movie Grill – Instead of separating dinner and a movie, opt for combining the two at Studio Movie Grill for delicious eats and the latest films.

Worship Organizations:

The Potter’s House with Bishop T.D. Jakes – The spirit filled this place soooooo incredibly. Visitors are greeted and given pamphlets of information and a free disk containing a past sermon then guided to the lower front seats of the mega church for the best view and experience.

Dallas was such a beautiful city full of opportunity and adventure. My visit proved that you can truly pack a lot into a quick vacation with proper planning, of course! Be sure to add some of these places to your next visit to Dallas. I sure can’t wait to visit again!
