I will take you on a 4 hour walking tour of Downtown Dallas.
This will help orient you and show you some of the unique places and sites of the city.

I deliver unique Urban Design tours of Downtown Dallas including Dealey Plaza; the site of the John F. Kennedy Assassination, Dallas' historic buildings, the three new parks, the Klyde Warren Deck Park, and the fabulous Art's District; home to several architectural award winning contemporary museums and performance halls. Also the huge bronze Steer Drive Sculpture and also visit the 1936 Art Deco masterpiece Fair Park a short train ride away. We can finish with an antique trolley ride to fashionable Uptown; Dallas' most walkable neighborhood.

These sites of are all available for a first hand visit. I am also a foodie and can find the perfect restaurant for a tour stop.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jim knows every corner of Dallas. You will discover architecture, art, parks, history, and so on. Learned more than I expected. Great explanation about history of buildings, when they were built, which architects, and the untold stories you can't find anywhere. I wanted to move by the public transportation, which is very easy, and cheap. Also there's the Trolley which is free. Many museums and plazas, cafes, restaurants to discover. Dallas is very diverse, so many things to do and see. Thanks Jim!
