Texas sunsets never get old. Each evening projects a majestic canvas across the horizon—blending shades of gold, pink, lavender and saffron into one perfect painting in the sky. Whether you want to capture it on camera or take it all in with your loved ones, here are some of the best places to watch the sun set in Dallas-Fort Worth.

The Arboretum is famous for its beautifully curated vegetation, but did you know it’s one of the best places to get a glimpse of the sun setting over the Dallas skyline? The view of White Rock Lake and the glistening buildings is simply amazing. For the best spots, head to the Martin Rutchik Concert Stage & Lawn or the Woman’s Garden’s Pond.
Delaney Vineyards is home to an elegant, rustic space overlooking ten luscious acres where you can enjoy the ultimate pairing of wine with a view. On Thursday nights in the summer, (through August 31) watch the sun set and groove at their Rhythm & Wine night featuring live music, dancing and hand-selected fine wine with a $15 admission.
The beautiful Joe Pool Lake in Grand Prairie nests multiple lake parks and marinas. For the best sunset experience, visit Lynn Creek Park and Marina where you can soak up the sunset over calming water on The Oasis Restaurant’s patio. For fun family activities, rent a boat or launch your own; bring your fishing gear or simply watch the ducks swim by the bridge.
4. LAKE CAROLYN
Located near Highway 114, Lake Carolyn offers a quaint, European neighborhood vibe with an urban backdrop. Ride the romantic gondolas and cruise through the canals, take a walk along the trail surrounding the lake and enjoy the view of the sun’s golden rays, piercing through the tall contemporary buildings in the area.
While you might overlook a sports venue as an ideal place to watch the sunset, consider heading to the upper deck of Globe Life Park, home of the Texas Rangers. Whether with family or friends, nothing beats that golden view, unless it’s followed by a Rangers victory, of course.
