Dallas Texas:

This panoramic shot of Dallas just might be the best angle of Downtown Dallas. The Building to the far left is Fountain place, which I critiqued in length on my Homepage, since it is my favorite building in Dallas! The next set of buildings is the Hyatt Regency Dallas Hotel, then the Hyatt Ball (which you can go inside of). In between these two structures is the Bank of America Building, which is the tallest building in Dallas. Then if you look to the right (the third from the right) is the Chase Tower also known as the "Key Hole Building" due to the hole in the middle of the upper half of the building. These are my favorite buildings in Downtown Dallas!

The Big D

There is a ton of stuff to do and see in Dallas. There are multiple parks, malls, museums, art gallerys, and the great "Night Life" the metroplex has to offer. Dallas still has a lil of that old west charm but with a big city look and feel.

Dallas at Night!

Dallas comes alive at night! The Bank of America Building is the one all lit up with neon green lights. The Hyatt Ball also lights up to look quit simmilar to the Epcot Ball in Disney World.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:It's warmer than the bigger northeastern cities!
  • Cons:It can get up to a 110 in the shade...
  • In a nutshell:The only Cowboys left in Dallas, play football! You may have to go to The Fort Worth Stockyards to actually see a some cowboys.

    You were in Dallas TX in the deep South. You sound surprised by this but you are being very naive. You are lucky you were not in New Orleans, you would be in the hospital. That's just the way it is.

    It's really cool looking at all the different architecture. I have friends from Dallas, and I've always heard great things about the city!

    Those are very helpful 'Off the Beaten Path' tips. Lakeside Park looks so calm and peaceful. And the teddy bears are so cute! Nice resto. tip too. Keep up the great work with your pages, Ben. ~Cheryl~

    Neat page about your hometown. That story book house looks like it belongs in Disneyland. :)
