The Bridge at North Edgefield Avenue
It’s good to be home ? I’m visiting my hometown of Dallas, Texas for the first time in a year and a half and it just feels like heaven. So many people told me that when we moved abroad we wouldn’t ever move back. Not me. I love life abroad and wouldn’t change it but I know one day I’ll be right back here. Dallas just has a piece of my heart. I’m celebrating the marriage of my sweet friend @iamsarahwebb tonight and CANNOT WAIT!! Check insta stories for more and some of my fav Dallas haunts. #helenelovesdallas
Right after sharing the above picture to Instagram I was asked where I took this picture. The answer: a small bridge with easily accessible parking. If you like skyline shots this is an awesome place to go in Dallas.
Address: N Edgefield Ave
The best spot for sunset pictures is Reunion Tower. You'll pay a fee to head to the top of the tower but the view is worth it. Dallas' Ball, as I've always called it, has a world renowned restaurant and a 360-degree view of the city.
Address: 300 Reunion Blvd E
The Trinity River Spillway
A few years ago Dallas had a fairly nasty flood that created a mess everywhere. The Trinity River was overrun with water that cascaded over the spillway. While driving around town to view the damage, we headed to the spillway and noticed it offered an interesting view of the city.
