Here is the end of day 1, now let's move to day 2.
Day 2: Enjoy the Beauty of the Nature
The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden
If you are someone who is into nature, then it is a request to visit this place. I mean, seriously, you will not regret it. This place covers around 66 acres of flowers and trees. In this place, you will learn about different species of plants and the procedures to recreate ecosystems.
Klyde Warren Park
Similar to the Botanical Garden, this park also holds around 37 native species of plants and 322 trees. The unique design of this park, designed by brilliant engineers, will blow your mind. This is free to visit.
The Dallas World Aquarium
After enjoying the world of nature, let’s go check up on some endangered aquatic species. The Dallas World Aquarium has around 460 water animals of more than 240 different species, which include stingrays, piranhas, electric eels, poison dart frogs, and Orinoco crocodiles. Not only that, but you can also see some water plants.
Now that you have seen all types of plants, trees, and water animals, why leave out different species of land animals? Make your next move toward the Dallas Zoo. This zoo is known as the largest and oldest zoo in Texas. Here, you will get to see around 2000 animals of approximately 406 species. And surprisingly, all the animals in this zoo are very friendly. The ticket price for this zoo is much lower than for the aquarium.
Day 3: Last Day in Dallas to Enjoy the Culture
Here comes the last and final day of your trip to Dallas. No, you can stay a bit longer in this city if you want. But if you follow the pattern of this blog then by the end of the second day, you will have completed your 66.6% tour. So, let’s start to complete the percentage by 100%.
Visit the Reunion Tower to start day 3. This tower is the official landmark of Dallas. In the year 1980, this tower was symbolized as a futurist society in a film called The Lathe of Heaven. However, this place is optional, but why miss it? We don’t visit places often. Who knows if you will come again?
Dallas Farmer’s Market
After the tower, you must visit the Dallas Farmer’s Market. I mean, why not? Don’t you want to taste the fresh and yummy fruits, vegetables, and meats? Here you can get to eat the specialty food of Dallas, Texas. Apart from that, you can buy some token memories for yourself as well as for your family and friends.
Dallas SkyDive Center
Dallas Trip would be incomplete without this last activity i.e. Parachute diving or Sky Diving. This activity is my personal favorite. If you are a keen lover of heights then you should definitely go to the SkyDiving Center to dive from a height of 17,500 feet. During the diving, you will get an overwhelming view of the Dallas skyline, Greenville, Lake Ray Hubbard, Lake Tawakoni, and Rockwall.
