Even though I live in Dallas, I still love to experience new things here whenever I have the opportunity. I thought it might be nice to share a blog post about my favorite things to do in Dallas for those of you planning a visit to The Lone Star State.
Sixth Floor Museum
One of the most iconic places in Dallas is the sixth floor of the Dallas County Administration Building, the location where Lee Harvey Oswald shot President John F. Kennedy. The Sixth Floor Museum chronicles the assassination of President Kennedy.
Dallas Museum of Art
I have been going to the DMA since I was a kid and love the special exhibitions they have. This is one of the biggest art museums in the country and definitely worth a visit.
Klyde Warren Park
Built over a freeway in Downtown Dallas, Klyde Warren Park is 5.2 acres of urban green space with tons of fun events, food trucks and playground area. There are also a lot of group fitness activities in the park, so be sure to check out the schedule before visiting.
Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens
One of my favorite things to do as a kid was visit the arboretum a few times a year. They offer several annual events and there are even concerts every Thursday night with a gorgeous view of White Rock Lake.
Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center
Growing up, my family and I would go to the symphony to hear Christmas music. It was one of my favorite memories and I still love going almost every year for various events throughout the year. Not only is it always entertaining, but the building is beautiful too!
I’d love to hear your favorite things to do and see in Dallas. I’m always looking for new things to try!
