This narrated trolley ride from Big D Fun Tours has 14 stops where you can hop on and hop off to explore Dallas at your own pace. As you pass some of the city’s most famous landmarks and attractions, you’ll learn about its past, present, and future.
Tours depart from Dealey Plaza at the corner of Elm Street and Houston Street. Of course, since this is a hop-on, hop-off tour you don’t have to board at Dealey Plaza—any of the 14 stops along the way will do. Just wave down the driver and climb aboard!
Some of the stops include Reunion Tower with its 360º view of the city, the Dallas World Aquarium, and the American Airlines Center. Nature lovers will enjoy spending time at Klyde Warren Park or Pioneer Plaza, and shoppers will love visiting the flagship Neiman Marcus store on Main Street.
History buffs should plan to get off the trolley at the West End Historic District and Dealey Plaza stops to visit the sites connected to the Kennedy assassination. If it’s art you’re into, be sure to check out the Dallas Museum of Art and the murals around the Deep Ellum stop. The graffiti-style paintings celebrate the history and culture of the area.
Dive into Deep Ellum:
Getting hungry? The trolley stops at two Hooters locations, the Dallas Farmers Market and the Omni Hotel, where you can admire the view from the bar and grill on the fourth floor. See the city at your own pace with Big D’s Hop-On Hop-Off Tour.
