CONTEST ALERT: High Five Your City!

Not applicable

Everyone has a special affinity for the city they call home.  As a Dallasite, I’ve spent years uncovering hidden hot spots that make my city a true Texas gem! 

If you can’t find me running (er, glamorous speed-walking) on the Katy Trail, browsing the outdoor library at Klyde Warren Park, or jamming to some jazz at a late night in the Dallas Museum of Art, you’ll find me wherever there is great food and conversation. 


One way to enjoy both and truly see Dallas, is from the sky!  My favorite bird’s eye view of the city is from the rotating dining room in Reunion Tower, also known as Five Sixty, named for its elevation, 560 ft. from the ground.  And as an inveterate “foodie”, I love to eat my way through downtown at the Farmers Market with delicious free samples!  Another great place to enjoy a bite is at the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens. As old as the 1930s, this 66-acre garden is the perfect place to relax with an afternoon picnic lunch.


Finally, for those who LUV to travel as much as I do, a winning Dallas destination is out on the back patio of Amsterdam Bar in Exposition Park.  Here, travelers gather from all over the world to meet and exchange stories of their travel adventures. 

Amsterdam Bar

I’m happy to give my city a “High Five” for it’s amazing hot spots!  But enough about Dallas!  We want to hear about YOUR city in celebration of Southwest’s five city openings in Portland Maine; Rochester, New York, Charlotte, North Carolina; Flint, Michigan; and San Juan, Puerto Rico!
