Looking for fun things to do this summer in Dallas? Trying to keep costs down? Below are our favorite suggestions:
Located across the street from Klyde Warren Park is the Dallas Museum of Art. Located in the Dallas Arts District, this museum has an interactive kids area and admission is free.
Four restored vintage trolley cars (Rosie, Matilda, Petunia, Miss Daisy and Green Dragon) allow visitors to explore historic Uptown Dallas for free. The McKinney Avenue Trolley service (also known as the M-Line) runs 365 days a year with stops at some of Dallas’ popular sites including Klyde Warren Park
Built above a highway between Downtown and Uptown Dallas, Klyde Warren Park offers families a morning or afternoon of fun – for free! There’s a children’s area with jungle gym and splash pad, putting green, ping pong tables and various lawn games to keep the family busy while enjoying the outdoors. There are a variety of dining options- food trucks line the edge of the park and there’s several restaurants if you are looking for a meal indoors.
Interested in seeing a cattle drive but don’t have time to visit the Fort Worth Stockyards? Head to Pioneer Plaza where there’s a re-creation of a cattle drive done with over 70 bronze statues. Located adjacent to the Dallas Convention Center, families can pose with the statues (some which are placed on hills and crossing a stream) and check out the waterfall and man-made cliffs.
Visitors walking around Dallas may see large B & G letters around the city. This is part of the Dallas Convention & Visistors Bureau’s “Big Things Happen Here” campaign. Visitors are invited to be the “I” in BIG and share on social media networks using the hashtag #DallasBIG. If you’re looking for the exact locations of the B & G letters, you can find them all here.
