Discovering a Modern Dallas

History & Charm in Downtown Dallas

Ugh, tech troubles! My computer crashed, leaving me way behind on posts. Thankfully, a few hours at the Apple Store fixed the problem, so I’m back to share our travel posts!
On May 1st, we spent a fun day exploring Dallas! Our first stop was at Dealey Plaza, the infamous site of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963. The Sixth Floor Museum had an incredibly well-done exhibit offering a detailed timeline of that fateful day. We stood at the very spot where the shots were fired. The JFK memorial provided a positive message to remember “the joy and excitement of one man’s life,” John Fitzgerald Kennedy. The nearby log cabin gave an impression of what the buildings must have looked like when the early pioneers arrived in the 1840s.

A Farewell to Dallas, TX, and A Hello to Monroe, LA!

Our walk continued through the historic West End. We meandered through Founder’s Square, admiring the impressive Longhorn artwork. The whimsical “Eye” caught our eye! The Klyde Warren Park was alive with activity and long lines at the food trucks. On our way back, we visited the historic Guadalupe Cathedral, still standing strong between the high-rise buildings.
I admit that I might have been negatively influenced by the series of the same name in the 1980s. However, Dallas pleasantly surprised us as a modern city with history, a food scene, and artistic vibes.
