Interesting Dallas Attraction and upcoming visit to Houston

If visiting Dallas anytime soon, the Dallas Museum of Art has an innovative late night program where the Museum stays open till midnight on the third Friday of each month. General admission is $10 or less (with kids under 12 free). Admission also includes free Starbucks coffee to keep you fully wired. Events include art activities, tours, and concerts. Read details at DallasMuseumofArt.org. In our visit last year to London, we wished that the many museums there would have had similar programs as there were so many to see. In the months to come, we will be making a return trip to Dallas/Fort Worth to highlight some of the more unique aspects of the area. In the meantime, be sure to read our Dallas area features on Southfork Hotel and the Southfork Ranch, and our Fort Worth features, which includes a visit to Billy Bobs, the Fort Worth Zoo, and Miss Molly's B&B Hotel.

Coming up next month, we visit Houston. Since I lived there for a summer job some 25 years ago, the city has exploded with growth. There are alot of construction projects in place that will further enhance the city as a fun destination for tourists, events, and meetings. We will be featuring a brand new luxury hotel with an Italian flare, the Hotel Granduca, just a short walk from Uptown Park, which houses many quality restaurants and shops. In the coming months, we plan a return visit to the coastal city of Galveston just south of Houston and the Corpus Christi areas to feature more top accommodations.
