Put on your cowboy boots because CMS is headed to Dallas!
Cowboy or Bust: What to Do in Dallas
CMS is holding the Advanced Treatment Planning Workshop in Dallas this October. It’s sure to be a great time to embrace any long-lost love for cowboy paraphernalia. The city celebrates its country roots while leaving plenty of room for the cultural value of modern art exhibits and unexpected sights.
The Legacy of JFK
No trip to Dallas would be complete without a visit to one deeply significant historical sight: The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza. This is the location that Lee Harvey Oswald purportedly assassinated President John F. Kennedy from.
It’s only a ten minute walk from where you’ll be staying at the Westin Dallas Downtown hotel. It also puts you in the Historic West End, a perfect area for seeing the city as it appeared decades ago.
An Eye for an Eye?
You have to make your way to one of the oddest sights in all of Dallas. Five minutes from the Westin is a famous (albeit slightly creepy) 30-foot-tall sculpture of an eyeball. It’s a little wacky but should give you a taste of the quirkier side of the city. Look up “Giant Eyeball” on Google Maps and you’ll be there in a jiffy.
Embrace the Wild West
Now it’s time to really immerse yourself in Dallas’ wild west vibe. Head on over to Pioneer Plaza, where you can gain an appreciation for the toil that brought settlers to the area.
For Even More Art …
Take a short drive to the Dallas Museum of Art to embrace the artistic side of Texas. It’s free and boasts quite a large collection. Not a bad way to spend a couple of hours!
We won’t be surprised if more than a few course participants show up for the day’s learning in cowboy hats and bolo ties. In fact, we hope you do!
