Dallas Zoo

A Dallas museum built for skeptics and conspiracy theorists everywhere, Dallas’ Conspiracy Museum (a left-leaning Dallas attraction) tackles the questions behind the propaganda, implicating far-reaching plots driving the JFK, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy assassinations with documentation and persuasively subversive arguments, photography and film footage.

Deep Ellum
2121 Main St., Dallas TX 75226; Tel. 214.747.DEEP
A bohemian enclave in Dallas, Deep Ellum is a funky and eclectic mix of shops, bars, restaurants and nightclubs in what was once an impoverished warehouse district in Dallas.

Fountain Place
1445 Ross Ave., Dallas TX

Thanks-Giving Square
1627 Pacific Ave., Dallas TX 7520; Tel. 214.969.1977
Conceived in 1961 by the City of Dallas, Thanksgiving Square is an all-faith shrine to the divine and Dallas’ most serene attraction. Dedicated to a spirit of gratitude, downtown Dallas’ Thanks-Giving Square features the spiral-shaped Chapel of Thanksgiving and the Glory Window, a 60-foot vertical stained-glass work of art is an attraction in its own right. Also designed by Philip Johnson, the Meditation Garden is sloped to hide the surrounding traffic and create the illusion of isolation amid skyscrapers.
