What to do in Dallas (Part 1)

The Adolphus has a car service that will drop you off and pick you up from any location within 3-miles of the hotel. One of the places you can visit is the flagship Nieman Marcus store (1618 Main St, Dallas, TX 75201). Definitely the place to please the shopaholic!

November 22, 1963 – this date is forever connected to the fateful events which occurred along Elm Street, in Dealey Plaza. The site of the assignation of JFK is one of the most popular attractions in Dallas. The Texas School Book Depository building is still standing, and the Sixth Floor Museum occupies the sixth floor, as you would expect! You can step back in time and re-live the events leading up to the day when the country lost one of their beloved sons. Everything almost looks to be the same, except that some of the trees have grown and obstruct the view of Elm Street from the 6th floor window where Lee Harvey Oswald fired his rifle.

Reunion Tower is located a short walk from the west end district. Walk towards Union Station and don’t let the tracks stop you… Just go downstairs through the tunnels where the trains are and follow the signs for the Hyatt. You can find the “spiky” ball sticking out in the Dallas skyline, always lit up in the night. Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant occupies the top of the ball and you can rent out your very own banquet room for private events. A great way to enjoy the Dallas sunset and the skyline at night!
