If you are visiting Dallas, Reunion Tower is one stop that you absolutely need to make.
Built in 1978 and 560 feet high, Reunion Tower is the city’s 15th tallest building with an incredible 360-degree view that will take your breath away. It’s one of the most talked about family-friendly visitor attractions in Dallas.
The Building: Reunion Tower
“The tower contains three floors with circular floor plans on top of four shafts of poured-in-place concrete. A central cylindrical shaft houses both stairs and mechanical equipment. Three rectangular shafts, featuring elevators, rise parallel to the central shaft. Each shaft’s outfacing wall is made up of glass panels, providing tourists views of the city during the 68-second elevator ride to the top.” – Wikipedia
“The Reunion Tower gives you a picturesque view of Dallas that you can’t get anywhere else. Upon entering Reunion Tower, you’ll purchase and/or scan your tickets and wait to go up the elevator for a 60-second lift up to the top. Once on the GeO-Deck, you can see the shapes that line the city and the colorful lights that brighten the night sky. However, from such a vantage point your carrot-powered superhero eyesight won’t be enough to catch all the details. Luckily, the Reunion Tower’s GeO-Deck offers access to high-def zoom cameras, telescopes and interactive touch screens so you can fully immerse yourself in Dallas culture [and] architecture.” – CityPass.com
