Traveling solo can be fun and you can discover new things in the cities you are visiting! I headed to Dallas for the 2017 Dallas-For Worth Auto Show solo and decided to visit an attraction on my down time.  While there I decided to take in the sites and check out Reunion Tower in Dallas.

Reunion Tower aka the big ball in the Dallas Skyline.  From 470 feet up you’ll see  360-degree panoramic views of Dallas. It is awesome!!!

It kind of looks like this at night.

Reunion Tower Dallas

Reunion Tower is located in downtown Dallas and is family friendly.


A friendly tip, enter through the Union Station at the corner of Reunion Blvd. and S. Houston St.  I made the mistake of just walking toward the big ball in the sky.  I ended up at the Amtrak train tracks.  A bit confused and wondering what to do I followed some people to an elevator. It took us down to the basement floor which took us to Reunion Tower.

Additionally, there is parking right next to Union Station. The Union Station Parking lot of $6 but is a smaller lot and is usually full.  There is one more parking lot on S. Houston Street for $5 and is much bigger but you must cross the street to get to Union Station. Admission prices for to the observation deck for adults are $48 and $32 for children.

Check out my adventure as I check out Reunion Tower solo.

Additionally, I was able to use the City Pass to get a discounted admission to Reunion Tower.  The City Pass is available for various cities across the country. I used it for my admission and it offers several other discounted admissions to attractions in Dallas.

The City Pass offers discounted admission to the Dallas Zoo, The Pero Museum of Natural Sciences, The Sixth Floor Museum, The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, and the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum.

The City Pass is available online and is valid for 9 days after activation.  My advice would be to plan your trip to Dallas and see how many of the attractions you pack into one or two days. Unfortunately, I was only in Dallas for two days and only visited Reunion Tower.

Dad Tip: If you have a little one younger than 3 years old they get in free! Also, if you want to make it a date night, head up to the Five Sixty restaurant.  No ticket is required for dinning or having a drink at the bar.  Next time I visit Dallas I am going to hit up the restaurant.

Where do you like to visit when you are visiting the big D?
