Hello from the Reunion Tower in Dallas TX! Let me say, I have wanted to visit this iconic “ball” since I was a little girl. Dallas skyline would just not be the same with out the Reunion Tower. So, once I found out about the ‘Summer Height’ activities, which are perfect for families, I knew it had to go on our Summer Bucket List
When we got inside there was a lot going on…I mean, who knew there was a hotel there?! Thankfully there are signs everywhere to help you navigate your way through the interior. We made it to the elevator that takes you up to the Geo-Deck, and there were a few people already waiting to go up. Honestly I was a little nervous about the elevator, there is a view to look out.. but I stayed near the door. The ride wasn’t so bad and it went faster than I thought it would. Once at the top the views took my breath away. We immediately went out onto the observation deck to take everything in. The city views, the bridges, the highways, it all looked so amazing from 470 ft. We could see all the way to Fort Worth!
What to eat at Reunion Tower
There are 2 restaurants at Reunion Tower; Cloud Nine and Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty Restaurant.
Cloud Nine offers casual food and drinks with a revolving view! Cloud Nine has a hot food menu on Saturday and Sunday, and light food and drinks on the GeO-Deck Monday – Friday.
Five Sixty is one of the best restaurants in Dallas! The skyline’s distinguishing 560-foot landmark with the distinctive glowing ball houses legendary chef Wolfgang Puck’s first fine dining restaurant in Dallas. This place sounds amazing and hopefully we will get the opportunity for a date night dining experience there, one day!
We ate at Cloud Nine during our visit. The food was good, we fell in love with the fries!
What to do
I never would have imagined that Reunion Tower offered anything more than food and amazing views, but to my surprise they actually offer tons of family friendly activities. From bingo night, crafts on the Geo deck, magic shows, animal encounter and story time – there is certainly something for everybody.
We went for for the Animal Encounters with the Dallas Zoo. It was very cool! The crowd was small so we really got to be up close and personal. I mean, look how close that giant lizard was to Sofia!! The presentation lasted about 45minutes and we got to see a variety of animals. And, the kids even got the opportunity to touch one of the animals… it wasn’t the lizard, that guy was just my favorite because she was holding him like a puppy!
We had such a wonderful experience, and we will certainly be back! I will forever recommend this place to everyone… seriously there is no reason not to go at least once!!
