Connect with nature and experience the outdoors with your TIAA friends as we take a guided tour of the beautiful Trinity River Audubon Center in Dallas. It may just be thirty minutes away from TI but you'll feel a world away while we are there.
Did you know there's a new professional sports team in town called the Dallas Rattlers who play lacrosse (or "the stick" in French)? They just moved here from Rochester, NY, are part of the Major League Lacrosse (MLL) organization, play in the air-conditioned Ford Center at The STAR stadium in Frisco, average almost 4,000 attendees/game and have won five out of seven games so far this year.
TIAA members hopped on a bus and traveled to the Southfork Hotel on August 2, 2008, to enjoy a dinner buffet with a live, audience-interactive “who done it” mystery performance of “Shooting at Southfork,” complete with J.R. Ewing and family. The Southfork Hotel is located at Central Expressway and 16th St. in Plano.
TIAA members observed how wine was made from the vine to the bottle with a great tour of the Lone Oak Winery in Burleson. We walked through the vineyard, saw the grape-crushing equipment and the aging room with oak barrels. Then we went to the tasting room to sample those wonderful grapes.
TIAA members visited the SMU Meadows Museum and saw Jack Kilby’s remarkable photographs as well as his Nobel Prize; heard a lecture by Anne Peterson on the creativity of this genius and toured the largest and most comprehensive collection of Spanish art outside of Spain including works by Picasso, Goya, Modin, etc.
