So, what's happening in Dallas?
« on: February 28, 2018, 03:45:57 pm »
My wife attending a conference in Dallas in April, and she's insisting I accompany her :patch:.

Anyone knows what's going on there, touristy wise? Not to keen on looking at oil derricks or longhorns all week...

Wouldn't mind trying to visit any mega fabrication facilities etc if there are, and they allow visiting (I'm an engineer so enjoy that type of stuff).

Cheers,

...maybe visit the Dealey Plaza (and the Grassy Knoll), and the book depository; history was made there...!

Thanks Chris, but that will keep me busy for 10 seconds, or however long it takes to drive through it.

Will put it under the maybe list

And have a look at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science

I am sure you will find the fossil of Debbie there  :laughing4:

Check out the Sixth Floor Museum - the building/floor where it all happened. That will keep you busy for a while - it's good.

Or go visit the Gas Monkey Garage in downtown Dallas. The also have a Gas Monkey bar not too far from there.


You can also look for a Cabelas close by. Awesome outdoor shop to visit. The size and variety is amazing.

If you want to check out what kind of money floats around, go drive through Highland Park. The most affluent suburb in Dallas. The houses are something else.

Then there is the ranch where the Dallas tv series was shot, but it might be a bit of a disappointment.
