Destination DART: Reunion Tower

Reunion Tower

Reunion Tower

Last month Dallas was voted “Best International Skyline” and as a native Dallasite, I’d have to agree – just look at it! It’s beautiful. Okay, I’m biased. The most recognizable building in our skyline is what us Dallasites know as “The Ball” otherwise called Reunion Tower.

The 50 story tower first opened on April 15, 1978 and has become synonymous with Dallas – mostly thanks to the TV show, Dallas.

In 2013 the Reunion Tower observation deck reopened after going through a massive remodel. The newly named GeO-Deck now has powerful telescopes, high-definition zoom cameras and interactive digital displays. The tower includes two fantastic restaurants. Cloud Nine Café is great for visitors who stop by during the day to have lunch 470-feet above the city with a 360-degree view. Chef Wolfgang Puck opened the award winning, Asian Fusion restaurant, Five Sixty for evening guests.

General Admission is $16 for adults, $8 for ages 4-12 and $14 for ages 65+. Hours vary by month.

Visitors can take the Red or Blue lines to Union Station and follow signs through an underground pedestrian walkway to Reunion Tower.
