Our visit to Dallas is regrettably “touch ‘n’ go”. There are so many places to see in Dallas, we have a long list, but instead of wandering around the streets and try out the local food haunts, we just manage to be tourists for the day under the scorching Texan sun. It’s very hot (around 36c …
Omni Hotel Park West, Fort Worth, Texas
