Love exploring Dallas but tired of the same old spots? Worry no more. Your Ascent Victory Park home is near some seriously unique activities to take part in no matter what piques your interest. Some of them you may have heard of, others may be new but either way you’ve got to experience these cool spots for yourself.
Looking for a more cultured and interesting outing for this weekend? Shakespeare Dallas is definitely the thing for you. With performances Wednesday-Sunday at the Samuell Grand Amphitheatre from September 19-29, you’re just a 10-minute drive from some insanely immersive shows. They’re currently performing Othello and then Hamlet starting in early 2019, so you can see a couple of shows to satisfy your Shakespeare needs. Pack a blanket, a few of your favorite snacks and a fresh bottle of wine so you can enjoy a picnic under the stars while you take in the show.
For a lot of people, a specific moment in history comes to mind when they think of Dallas. On the fateful day of November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy was assassinated from the exact location where The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza currently stands. If the history of the events have always fascinated you, you can dive further into them here. From exploring the evidentiary space where the shots were initially fired to looking at actual artifacts from the event, you can immerse yourself in something truly unforgettable.
Dallas has plenty of museums we’ve already explored, but a few others that don’t get enough credit: one of those being the Crow Collection of Asian Art. Started by the Crow family in 1998, the collection of Asian art and culture has continuously been growing. When you visit, you can see everything from ancient ceramics to their current collection of a complete samurai suit of armor. Walk the halls and see items you’ve never seen before at this uniquely special spot.
Fall is fast approaching and a lot of us are looking to get in the mood for the upcoming season. Nothing helps quite like visiting some spooky spots and getting (just a little bit) scared. The Adolphus Hotel is a Dallas landmark and said to be haunted and is waiting to be explored. You can book a stay and see if you can spot the supernatural for yourself. No matter if you’re a believer or not, the hotel itself is a historical wonder and oh so beautiful. Boo.
