Easiest spot to photograph the iconic Dallas Pegasus sign (this is the restored original). The replica sign, located atop another hotel, can be seen in the skyline but is difficult to photograph due to obstructing buildings. Pioneer Plaza is just down the street from here...

It's a historic symbol of an industry. Nostalgia, red neon sign. Take a few pictures and move on to other history and architecture in the area.

Pegasus Sign is such a pleasant memory. Everyone that grew up seeing it should take the young members of their family there to share stories and reminisce. Truly enjoyable.

The restored original Pegasus sign rotates happily in front of the glorious Omni Dallas hotel. On the Magnolia building at Magnolia square actually stands a replica.
