What a beautiful city.
I had the pleasure of visiting Dallas a few weeks ago for the National First Year Experience Conference, and I was quite impressed.
I presented on some of the programs my office has developed to support first-generation college students. It was a packed house!
You know what they say about all work and no play, though...
So I made sure to reserve some time for sight-seeing. Come along with me on a tour of the "Big D," wont you?
The Old Red Courthouse is now a museum dedicated to the history of Dallas County.
At the JFK Memorial, visitors can pause to pay their respects to former President John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated just a few blocks away.
Pioneer Park offers a truly staggering collection of fifty half-ton bronze statues commemorating the 19th century cattle drives along the Shawnee Trail.
Thanksgiving Square is home to beautiful mosaics and the famous Spiral Chapel.
And you can't visit Dallas without a trip to the arts and entertainment district of historic Deep Ellum. This was my favorite neighborhood.
Did I mention how amazing the food was?
Dallas is a rich and interesting city full of history and hidden charms. I hope you enjoyed this little photo tour!
