How to do Dallas in 48 hours
May 29, 2013
One of the great joys of being headquartered in Dallas is watching this vibrant city grow. And lately, Dallas has been on a roll! The Perot Museum of Nature and Science, Klyde Warren Park and the George W. Bush Presidential Center all opened recently to rave reviews. A favorite landmark, Reunion Tower, just announced plans to reopen a snazzy new Observation Deck, with food and beverages by Wolfgang Puck. Plus, our client Hyatt Regency Dallas completed a $50 million room renovation, making the longtime Dallas hotel the “new kid on the block,” just in time for its 35th anniversary.
To celebrate the “New Dallas,” Hyatt hosted a handful of influential, out-of-town journalists for the weekend, showing off its new high-tech rooms and the innovative attractions throughout Dallas. Our whirlwind tour included:
- The Perot Museum of Nature and Science
- Klyde Warren Park
- George W. Bush Presidential Center
- Summer Adventures in Fair Park
- Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and Hofmann Hots in Trinity Groves
- Reunion Tower and Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty fine dining
Our schedule was full, but with help from Silvercar, the simple and convenient car rental service, we got around town in comfort and style.
After a jam-packed weekend, you better believe our guests needed a brand-new, high-tech and ultra-comfortable hotel room where they could kick off their shoes. (And from what we heard, they weren’t disappointed!)
The experience reinforced to us the importance of taking advantage of our inner-agency resources. The weekend’s success was hugely due to teamwork. Combining expertise from Richards Partners teammates working with tourism-related clients, specifically Reunion Tower and Dallas CVB, allowed us to plan and execute a next-to-perfect weekend in Dallas.
