Enjoy a Hop-on Hop-off Tour in Dallas

Dallas is an easy drive from Irving, and the Hop-on Hop-off Tour offers a fun way to explore the town. It features 14 stops and 100 points of interest, and you're sure to discover a few surprises. Here are some of the highlights you can enjoy near our Olympus Las Colinas Irving apartments:

Neiman Marcus

Founded in Dallas in 1907, Neiman Marcus has a long history of featuring unique, quality goods. Its first advertisement boasted "a wider variety and more exclusive styles than any other store in the South." Today, the Dallas location is open Monday through Saturday, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. You can shop for clothes, home decor, personalized gifts, and so much more.

Pioneer Plaza

A unique destination, Pioneer Plaza celebrates the trails that led settlers to Dallas. Bronze longhorn steers recreate the cattle drive, while native plants, trees, and a flowing stream create a lush natural setting. Be sure and look at the sculptures closely as they feature small historic details. Check out this must see historical site.

Perot Museum of Nature and Science

Enjoy a few hours of exploration at the Perot Museum. Its mission is to "inspire minds through nature and science." During your visit, you'll discover an array of exhibits, including the Rose Hall of Birds. You can build a virtual bird, see fossil specimens, and much more. In addition to the exhibitions, the museum also features a state-of-the-art 298 seat theater. It comes complete with immersive surround sound and brilliant 4K digital projection to create an unparalleled theater experience.
