Dallas map of things to do

1 - Reunion Tower

Check out the reservation deck at the Reunion Tower in Downtown Dallas. There’s also a Wolfgang Puck restaurant in the tower if you’re looking for a fancy shmancy dinner option.

2 - Pegasus sign at Omni Hotel

Dallas is straight up obsessed with Pegasus - everywhere you look, you’ll surely be able to spot one. There’s a big red neon Pegasus at the Omni Hotel downtown, which is a repaired and renovated version of the original 1934 Pegasus that stood on top of the Magnolia Hotel.

3 - Pegasus at The Old Red Museum

Another Pegasus greets visitors at The Old Red Museum, which used to be the Dallas County Courthouse.

4 - Giant Eyeball

Super strange, but super cool sight - HA, get it? Just a weird art installation you should check out.

5 - The Traveling Man in Deep Ellum

There are 3 big art installations called The Traveling Man by an artist named Brad Oldham.

6 - Sixth Floor Museum

Dallas is known for being the assassination location of President John F. Kennedy. There’s a museum at the Dealey Plaza, where the assassin is believed to have pulled the trigger. This museum goes through the history of the events and conspiracy surrounding it. X marks the spot on the road where JFK was shot, which you can see from the Dealey Plaza and can be visited on foot - just be careful of oncoming traffic!

Additional notes

DO NOT go to The Dallas Aquarium. It was straight up raining cats and dogs while we were in Dallas - like flood level rains, so we had to find alternatives to our plans. We took a chance on the Dallas Aquarium, which was a huge mistake. It costed us $20 USD each to walk through a damp, dirty, smelly building just to see a handful of animals confined to their cruel, tiny homes. Word to the wise, skip the aquarium.
