for our road trip this spring, my friends and i are each researching one city that we will visit/go through. i got dallas, and it looks like some mild fun. (what uppp, arrested development?!)
SIXTH FLOOR MUSEUM
museum set up at the dallas book depository where lee harvey oswald shot jfk from. steep price, but it could be cool, especially for a history nerdbomber like me.
HARRY HINES BLVD
also know as shoppers alley, everything i've read says it's a good place for bargain hunters.
a museum dedicated to new and old fans.
AMERICAN MUSEUM OF MINIATURE ARTS
some sites say that this museum is closed, but if it's not it sounds awesome!
DALLAS FARMER'S MARKET
sandwiches on the cheap!
MARY KAY COSMETICS MUSEUM
lol, really? guided tours of mary kay's history?
here's what the website said, "a growing number of bronze, larger-than-life steers and their cowboy escorts move along pioneer plaza". is there anything better than a steer and his cowboy escort?
FARMER'S BRANCH HISTORICAL PARK
covering history from the 1840s to the 1940s, a few original structures, such as log cabins, are available for free tours.
UPTOWN AND WEST VILLAGE
i'm fairly certain this is the up and coming area of dallas. every description uses the word "eclectic"
DALLAS CENTRAL LIBRARY
houses one of the original copies of the declaration of independence and shakespeare's firt folio of works!
