Reunion Tower


What rises 560 feet above Dallas and offers a 360-degree view of the city? Reunion Tower, of course - the unofficial symbol of Dallas. Take the 68-second elevator ride to enjoy the panorama, explore the city using the telescopes and oversized touch screens, or visit the Tower's restaurant, Crown Block. General admission tickets to the observation deck range from $19 to $25, depending on time of day. A pedestrian tunnel connects Reunion Tower with Union Station.
