Irving Hidden Canals

 Did you know that Irving had canals? Irving has so many options for fun in the city. If you haven't seen the canals its time for you to check them out. It is a really sweet place to go and explore with your family. What you didn't know is that you can have a Gondola Adventure ride with your significant other. Not only can you have a ride on the Gondola you can have dinner, lunch or just take a ride. I was excited to hear about this option at the Irving Canals. 

The city of Irving has been adding new and fun destinations places. The canals are one of the coolest places to check out and I hope you can give it a try and see what you will like. What I hope would happen is that more entertainment and restaurants be added along the canals. This would add more attraction and buzz around the area. 

 If you are looking for a great family day at the Irving Canals you will want to keep this day on your calendar. April 22nd 2017 is the day you will have a blast with your family. The Canal Fest, Irving. TX will be a great family friendly event with music, food and local artist. This family friendly event has something for everyone and you will see the canals come to life with entertainment. I like this annual event and I know that it will spark more attractions to come and be apart of this hidden beauty in Irving.

Reunion Tower

Reunion Tower is 470 feet up you'll experience breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views, high-definition zoom cameras, interactive touch screens, telescopes, photo ops and an indoor/outdoor observation deck that lets you see for miles in any direction.

The journey begins in the PIX photo experience at the bottom of the tower. we had a great time taking these goofy pictures. We were able to take out pictures in front of a green screen, but we could use different props to change the look we wanted. the kids really like picking out their props. You will be able to check out your pictures when you scan your ticket at the top with computers waiting for you. Next, we boarded the elevators that are ready to take us 470 feet in the air in 68 seconds to the GeO-Deck

This indoor/outdoor observation deck lets you explore the city unlike anywhere else. Step up to the interactive touch screen Halo and with just one swipe discover local hidden gems, historic landmarks, museums, parks and much more.

Ready for a different view? Head outside for a lap around the exterior deck and feel the wind in your hair as you stand 470 feet on the outside deck! Day or night, make the iconic Reunion Tower your first stop to explore interesting things to see and do in Dallas.

The kids were really hungry so we went up to the Cloud Nine Café. This was a nice spot to sit and relax and enjoy a burger, fresh lemonade and a view. The kids really enjoyed seeing the view of the city in a new way. A birds eye view for sure. The kids were almost at the eye level of certain birds that took flight so close to the tower. The one things that the kids enjoyed was the room was spinning at a low unrecognizable speed. The view changes with a 360 view. We didn't make it all the way around, but it was enough for the, to see the different points and landmarks of the city.

The food was really good and we really liked the taste of the fresh lemonade, and the service was good as well. My kids were loud and jumping from chair to chair because they were excited, so of course its a kid friendly place.
