Dallas has tons of amazing restaurants to pick from…why choose just one? Take a food tour with Food Tours of America, and enjoy sampling foods from multiple restaurants!  They have themed tours, such as the JFK Dine and Dealey, which combines food and architecture.  This is not only a great way to fill your belly, but to also learn about the area!


Join the Animals!

Want to feed an elephant?  Hold a penguin in your lap? Register for a behind-the-scenes tour at the Dallas Zoo!  You’ll get to be up-close and personal with some amazing creatures of the wild!  When your awesome VIP experience is over, enjoy the rest of the day by exploring everything else that the Dallas Zoo has to offer. (Stay tuned for the hippo habitat that will be opening in early 2017!)


Get Fit!

Head out for a hike or bike ride on the White Rock Lake Trail, located northeast of downtown Dallas.  This trail is a paved loop that is almost 10 miles long.  Enjoy the beautiful views of the water, wild flowers along the path, and some cool homes!  You can bring your dog with, but be sure he is on a leash!


Shop!

Need some retail-therapy after a long, crazy week at work?  Head over to the Dallas Galleria!  With stores like Armani Exchange, Banana Republic, Coach, Forever 21, lululemon athletica, Macy’s, Sephora, Pottery Barn, American Girl Boutique, Tiffany & Co., Fossil, Michael Kors, Pacsun, Foot Locker, Steve Madden and more, there is plenty of options for everyone. After burning up a sweat from your intense shopping spree, stop by the indoor ice rink to cool down! ($10 admission/$3 skate rental)


Enjoy the View!
