Texas: Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Grapevine

Sundance Square
This Texas work trip was...timed interestingly. There was lunch in Austin, July 3rd fireworks in Arlington, TX, and then more fireworks on the 4th in Fort Worth. And then dinner at Klyde Warren Park in Dallas on a Wednesday.

Fort Worth is really, really lovely. Sundance Square in particular. The whole area of downtown Fort Worth has nice architectural elements. Austin is always lovely, but maybe better in the autumn when walking along the river doesn't make you die of heat stroke. Texas summers are sort of like Canada in the winter - you cannot enjoyably go outside for three months of the year. But at least in Texas, you can enjoy dinner outside after the sun has set.

Near Arlington (and, quite conveniently, the DFW airport) is Grapevine, TX. It has a quaint little old school downtown with a weekend farmers' market, lovely brunch spots, and lots of little shops. It could be a nice place to live.
