    I’m from the Greatest City in the World, um, I mean Dallas, and there’s a lot to see!

    *The Canals at Las Colinas (awesome architecture, gondolas, romance)
    *Stop by and see the new opera house being built on Woodal Rogers. Pretty amazing.
    *The NASHER is a must
    *Five guys burgers at the Galleria Mall
    *Southfork Ranch where Dallas was filmed. That’s about a mile from my house.
    *Dallas Arboretum
    *We have an awesome arts district with something to do all the time.
    *And of course the Dallas Temple. :)

  7. The Soup Kitchen in Knoxville is fabulous! Afterwards you could visit the UT Arboretum…it’s gorgeous!

    And Litton’s has burgers and shakes that could rival any NYC location! Don’t forget to share a piece of red velvet cake if you make it there!

    Safe travels…

    I live in Austin, TX so I don’t know the details of the awesome things to do in Dallas,
    but I second Jenna:

    take blubonnet pictures! A Texas spring tradtion. Wear white.

    p.s. based on the blog, you guys would adore the feel of Austin. you guys should come visit. :)

    You HAVE to get a Tennessee tea cake while in Knoxville. The best are at Ham N Goodies. The lemon cookies there are to die for too. I have family there and it’s always my first request when I visit.

    Oh, also in Knoxville you need to go to the World’s Fair Park (it was the 1982 world’s fair) and get a shirt too! The park is marked with the big giant gold sunsphere that looks like a giant golf ball!
