The adventure at The Dallas World Aquarium begins at the top of the rainforest exhibit, where exotic birds, such as Cocks-of-the-rock and many species of toucans, can be seen. Lounging around are Two-toed and Three-toed sloths. Endangered animals, such as Orinoco crocodiles, Giant river otters, Antillean manatees and several species of monkeys are part of the many conservation projects. The aquarium portion displays interesting marine life, including Japanese crabs, jellyfish, Leafy, Weedy and Ribbon seadragons. Black-footed and Blue penguins can be seen swimming as guests enjoy the outdoor South Africa exhibit. Sharks, rays and sawfish are only a few of the fish living in the Mundo Maya cenote. Safe from Neotropical eagles, are euphonias, tanagers and hummingbirds. Reptiles and amphibians, both of significance to the Maya culture, can be seen throughout the exhibit.
There is no place in the city like Arlington Hall. Built in 1939, restored and expanded in 2002, it is a place at once both historic and contemporary. Its enviable location in the heart of Lee Park is easily accessible from all parts of the city, yet it seems secluded beneath its canopy of trees.
The magic of Arlington Hall's interior design is the lyrical flow of one space into another, allowing a feeling of a perfect fit for parties of all sizes. The Great Hall is grand, yet intimate. The Reception Room is expansive, yet welcoming. Together with the Lee Room, Dallas Room, Gallery, and Foyer, Arlington Hall is at once both freshly enchanting and wonderfully familiar.
Arlington Hall's two terraces and stately portico provide gracious access to the great outdoors. Tented affairs are especially appropriate on the lawn and formal garden. Mature trees surround the building and frame the starlit sky, as custom-designed exterior lighting illuminates the area in captivating shades of moon glow
