Meet for breakfast in the Chaparral Room, 38th floor.

The Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden

Just minutes from downtown Dallas, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is a world-class, 66-acre urban oasis attracts over 978,000 visitors annually. Featuring 19 finely manicured gardens, seasonal festivals and activities, a robust plant trials program, adult and youth education programs, and a new 8-acre Children’s Adventure Garden, there is truly something for everyone at the Arboretum.

We will take a guided, personalized tour of the gardens, fountains along with a view of White Rock Lake and the downtown Dallas skyline. There will be free time to use your 15 percent discount in the gift shop and walk the grounds followed by lunch on the open covered patio.

NorthPark Center

NorthPark Center officially opened on July 22, 1965 with four anchors: Neiman Marcus, Woolworths, Titche-Goettinger and the largest JCPenney store in the Southwest. Since that day, NorthPark Center has defined retail in the Southwest.  Today NorthPark is consistently ranked among the top five shopping destinations in the country and, with more than 26 million visitors annually, has been named the top attraction in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex by the Dallas Business Journal and as one of the "7 Retail Wonders of the Modern World" by Shopping Centers Today.  NorthPark's present anchors - Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Macy's and Dillard's - consistently perform at the top of their respective brands in sales volume.
Take a walking tour of the Nasher Sculptures scattered throughout the mall and hear the history of this Dallas landmark mall.
