10 Best Places to Propose in Dallas

1. Reunion Tower

Reunion Tower Dallas

Anyone who has driven through Dallas has seen the large, sphere tower that stands tall in the distance. That tower is called Reunion Tower, and it offers breathtaking views of the city skyline.

Romantic, charming and a great place to propose, the tower is where many couples come to pop the question.

Sunset is an especially magical time to come to the tower, which stands as the 15th largest building in the city. You will need to purchase tickets, but they’re well worth the cost to experience Dallas from new heights.

2. Gondola Ride at the Mandalay Canals

Do you mind going just a little bit outside of the city to Irving? Irving offers a one-of-a-kind gondola adventure. You’ll be able to choose your own cruise, even a private one, and feel like you’ve stepped out of the DFW and into Italy.

Cruises are available with dessert, lunch or other food, and there are options for an hour or more hour tour.

The gondola ride will take you through the Mandalay Canal or Lake Carolyn. Romantic and stunning are two words that describe this experience.

3. Crescent Court

The park is a mere 1.5-acres and is in the Harwood District.
