It’s been one heck of a year I tell you. A lot of work and little to almost no play for both my husband and I. Ideally, I wanted to take a summer vacation to a beach, but we weren’t able to make that happen this year. With 2015 nearing its end, we felt like we had to get something in before the year comes to a close.
It’s football season and my husband really enjoys football. I’ve been wanting to get back to Dallas so I came up with… Dallas Cowboys Football Game. I purchased tickets for my husband and I to attend the Dallas Cowboys vs the Philadelphia Eagles at AT&T Stadium in Dallas. I lived in Dallas for many years and had the opportunity to attend every professional sports game the city offers. This is my husband’s first time attending a professional football game and visiting the city of Dallas.
Since Dallas is only about a 4hour drive from where we live, we made it a road trip! It’s a Sunday night and the game is nationally televised! The weather was perfect and the atmosphere was electrifying.

Dallas Cowboys – AT&T Stadium
Upon entering the stadium, I stopped at the Pro Shop and purchased a Dallas Cowboys cap. Of course we were going to act as though we were diehard Cowboy fans for 3 1/2 hours. Needless to say we didn’t bring the Cowboys any luck… They lost again.
The stadium is absolutely amazing. It’s an 80,000 seat capacity stadium with a retractable roof. The Jumbotron will leave you speechless. This facility houses so many cool things to see and do. If you’re ever visiting Dallas be sure to take a tour of Jerry’s World.
Omni Hotel Downtown Dallas
The View from our room on the 23rd Floor
Reunion Tower (Dallas Landmark) – at night Reunion Tower displays dancing light patterns that change colors for special occasions. It houses a revolving restaurant and an observation deck.
We had to take a room with two queen beds even though we made reservations two months in advance. It wasn’t bad after all, it gave me a place to toss my luggage and things.
Electric Mirror – Maybe I’m late and out of touch. I’ve stayed in some very nice hotels before but I’ve never seen a television built into the bathroom mirror.
The Pool (Day and Night) – because of the season we weren’t able to enjoy the pool. There were people in the hot tub but I know I would’ve froze to death getting out. There is a poolside bar/restaurant called Uptown Terrace and a cozy fire pit with seating.
Nightcap by the fire
We really enjoyed our short rendezvous. We think its important to duck-off and enjoy time with one another, even if it’s just reserving a room at a nice local hotel for a night or two. Our plan is to make our next trip sometime after Christmas to Miami to see the Heat in action! Neither of us have ever been to Miami so it will make a grand adventure!
Thanks for stopping by and letting me tell you about my road trip!
