Dallas, Texas, is the 3rd largest city in Texas and several skyscrapers in its skyline are among the highest in the Lone Star State. The tallest is the 921 feet high Bank of America Plaza, and it is also the 3rd tallest in the state. The Renaissance Tower at 886 feet is the second highest. Also well known is Reunion Tower, the second highest observation tower in Texas.
Dallas rose to importance because of its involvement in the cotton and oil industries and is also known for its art and architecture. The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, newly opened in March 2010, is a delight to see at night, as well as enjoy from its parallel walking-bridge neighbor, the Continental Avenue Bridge. Also worthy of visits are the Dallas Museum of Art, Southfork (for fans of the television fans of “Dallas”), the Meyerson Symphony Center, and many others.
It seems Fort Worth has lived in the shadow of its neighbor, but it offers great views and exciting entertainment in its own way. Arguably, the most famous aspect of this city is the Fort Worth Stockyards, whose presence along with the arrival of the Texas and Pacific Railway in 1876 allowed for a growth explosion and propelled this little cow-town into the modern day.
The tallest buildings of the Fort Worth Skyline are the Burnett Plaza at 567 feet, and the Horton Tower at 547 feet. Along with a modest collection of high rises, a fine arts community also thrives. Most well known is the Bass Performance Hall with its angels welcoming guests. Museums such as the Kimbell Art, Amon Carter, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and many others offer many ways to enjoy day and evening entertainment.
