Fountain Place is a tranquil destination to meet during the day and a romantic place to talk in the evening. It’s located in the Arts District of Dallas and features a tower shaped like a rocket with a green glass exterior and 172 bubbler fountains and a central grand fountain. The tower is 60 stories high and has been under construction for the last few years to update the interior, a renovation that will continue through 2018. With trees surrounded by water, you could stroll through the fountains and watch the water or find a nice place to sit and write with the sounds of moving water in the air. With many places to eat nearby, it’s a prime location for like-minded guests to talk about everything while the sun goes down, and then watch as the water is illuminated by nightfall.
