The Magnolia Downtown Dallas is in the former Petroleum Company Building and still features the iconic Flying Red Horse.

  1. Denver

The capital of Colorado, Denver dates back to the era of the Old West, founded in 1858. Today, Larimer Square is considered the city’s oldest block, and throughout the downtown you can find several historic buildings. Icons include the Daniels & Fisher Tower, the state capitol building, Union Station and the Magnolia Hotel Denver that is formerly the American National Bank Building.

Houston is the largest city in Texas and the fourth largest in the United States. The city was founded in 1837 and sprawls for 655 square miles. It is home to the Space Center, the American Cowboy Museum and numerous historic sites.

The city of Omaha, Nebraska is home to one of the country’s most charming zoos, Creighton University, and a historic downtown district with attractions, upscale dining and boutique shops. It was established as a city in 1854, and its Missouri River location influenced its growth.
