Ever Wanted To Hit The Otherwise Unaccessible Roofs of Downtown Dallas? Here's Your Chance.

How many photos of the Dallas skyline are there in the world? It's got to be in the millions, no?

What's truly remarkable is that, though we've all seen our share of skyline photos, there's still a photographer or two in town who can snap a shot of the familiar cityscape that manages to stand out among the rest of the postcard fodder.

Part of these ace photographers' secret? More often than not, these folks are shooting from rooftops and other vantage points most of us don't have access to.

That's what makes next Saturday's “Celebrate Dallas! Look Local” tour sound like such an incredible opportunity: From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a self-guided tour will allow participants access to the rooftops of 10 historical Downtown buildings.

Think of all the Insta-gold, y'all.

Also cool? Materials will be available at each spot to provide some historical context to each of these popular locales. So even your captions are gonna be on point.

Spots included in the tour include 1505 Elm (includes penthouse), Gables Republic Tower, Thanks-Giving Square, Mercantile Place, SoCo Lofts, 400 N. Ervay, The Continental Building, Dallas Power & Light Flats and Wilson Building, each of which has a wonderfully rich history.

Afterwards, there'll be an after-party at Third Rail Lofts.

Tickets for the tour are $30, and can be purchased here in advance.
