On the show this week, we were talking about the Astrodome being torn down, a structure that was once referred to as the Eighth Wonder of the World. It got us talking about the real Seven Wonders of the World, which got me thinking about what the Seven Wonders of the Metroplex would be. Most Wonders of the World lists are split into two categories: man-made and natural. So, I would like to present my lists of the Wonders of the Metroplex.
THE SEVEN MAN-MADE WONDERS OF THE METROPLEX
The AT&T Deathstar
The Texas Motor Speedway
The Green Building
The High Five
THE SEVEN NATURAL WONDERS OF THE METROPLEX
The Trinity River
The Great Trinity Forest (the largest natural forest in any US metropolitan area)
Cedar Hill State Park
Dallas National Golf Course (yes, man-made, but the topography is natural)
Goat Hill (home of the waterfall billboard)
The Drolen-Dombeck Mountain Range on Channel 11
There you have it. Make a point to visit these Wonders, although you'll need to be a member at Dallas National to visit there, and you'll need to be a boyfriend or husband (or doctor, I suppose) of Drolen or Dombeck to have visiting rights to those ranges. Safe travels!
