Map of the Underground Dallas Tunnels

Nov 12 2008

One of the things I love about working downtown is that there is so much here within walking distance. I can walk to vote at the Records Building, walk to go to a food court (our favorite is under the Renaissance Tower), walk to visit one of my favorite swanky mod lunch spots, or walk 2 blocks after work to see a concert at the House of Blues.

In August 2006 (can you believe that was over 2 years ago?) I wrote a blog post on exploring the underground Dallas tunnels, and we get a lot of organic search traffic to that post.

I have since stumbled across this map of the downtown tunnels that I thought I would share with those curious passers by. The site credits the map to the Downtown Improvement District, but I can’t find it anywhere on their official website.

Happy exploring!

  2. I have been in and out of the tunnels and they are so confusing. It makes no sense there are no signs and you can never be sure how to get out in case of an emrgency. Not to mention if you have to pee. I wish the buildings would get together and figure out a way to make things more cohesive. The maps that are available are hard to read and things change all the time.

  3. I loved the underground tunnels, I lived downtown at one time and worked downtown as well. I could walk out of my building at 1900 Elm and go into the tunnel, buy a muffin for breakfast or a full breakfast and walk to work without ever going outside until I came up across the street from my job near First Baptist. There is a map that tells you where to come up to move into another building to access another tunnell and proceed in your intended direction. It can be intimidating at first until you have done it a couple of time, then you get your bearings. There was always lots of security people there in blue jackets and grey slacks, that could assist you in finding your way for locating a toilet.

  4. The underground walkways with shops have been in place for over 30 years.. I made newspaper deliveries for USA Today in 1983 through 1987 and for The New York Times prior to that and discovered how vast the system was back then… It was a very surreal environment at 3 or 4 AM when no one was around.
