What to do?

by Jenna8675309

Hi folks,

I'll be heading down to Texas in late July, from the 20-26th. I'd love for some tips on really interesting things to do in the Dallas-Fort Worth area during that time.

Also, I plan on heading out from Dallas for a few days--any good beaches to go to?

Any great small towns?

RE: What to do?

by mccalpin

Well, ma'am, ya shore picked a hooooooot time to come down hereabouts ;-)

I have no idea what you might consider interesting, but here are some thoughts:

Go see a rodeo (yes, a real one, if citified) - see http://www.mesquiterodeo.com/

Go see where JFK was shot, including the 6th Floor Museum (actually, a pretty decent museum), which is in the building from which Oswald allegedly shot Kennedy.

Go shopping...the Neiman Marcus flagship store is still downtown, but more importantly, Northpark - something like the first covered mall in the US - has been totally redone (to the tune of $200 million?) and has places like Neiman's, Barney's New York, Nordstrom, Macy's-Floey's, and Dillards, as well as a ton of other places... see http://www.northparkcenter.com/

Look at the Dallas Convention and Vistors Bureau website for a list of things to do - see http://www.dallascvb.com/visitors/index.php

Go to the museum complex in Ft. Worth...really, the museums are better in Ft. Worth than Dallas, like the Kimball, the Amon Carter, etc. See http://www.fortworth.com/01visitors/0106museums/0106museums.shtml

Go down to Granbury and Glen Rose (southwest of Dallas). See the dinosaur footprints (yes, you can take photos of your kids standing in them). See http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/findadest/parks/dinosaur_valley/

Near Granbury, stop off just outside of town where there are rapids in the Paluxy River, and everyone just parks nearby and wades or sits in the running water...hey, we have cheap thrills on a hot summer day in Texas ;-)

As for a beach...there are lakes around North Texas, some with artificial beaches, but I imagine the nearest natural beaches are 250 miles away on the Gulf Coast. I like Galveston, but it's not the dazzling white sand or clea blue water that you might expect from Florida or whatever.

Anyway, is that a start?

To Do around Dallas

by BHSDallas

There is so much.
Fort Worth: Stockyards, eat at Joe T. Garcia's and visit the Kimball and Aman Carter Museums.
In Dallas;Deep Ellum for nightclubs, visit Thanksgiving Square designed by world famous architect Philip Johnson, and Stroll around the Long Horn sculpture downtown.
Galveston is an easy drive and lots of fun.
If you have time try to visit San Antonio and see part of the Texas Hill Country.

And yep, I know it'll be hot. It will be a nice change from Wisconsin ;)

Travel Tips for Dallas

City Arts Celebration

by VeronicaG

The City Arts Celebration has been an annual event in Dallas' art district for the last five years. This past weekend was our first taste of this colorful gathering of the art community.

It was blazing hot when we attended. Fortuitously, a misting station was located in the center of all of this creativity--for which we were very thankful!

As we trudged up the street, vibrant oils caught our attention, but actually it was the pottery that seemed most captivating (pic #2). We were drawn to many of these stalls to sort through hand crafted "treasures".

A cool display of "art cars" made for a photo op, while in another area elementary children performed a dance beneath a large, sheltering canopy. Live music filled the air in a variety of forms: a rock group, Tejano music and others (pic #3).

Of course, it seems every event like this has a food section, so we were thrilled to find funnel cakes, which we divied up three ways. I can't say that this event compares to Fort Worth's Art Fest, but perhaps in time it will.

March Packing List

by ATXtraveler

The temperature for the most part in March is going to be mild, although Dallas has been known to have winter slip past the end of February a couple times. Overall, around the middle of March however the entire day will be nice and calm. You will most likely want to wear short sleeves and a light pair of pants or jeans, but I would keep a light jacket, possibly even a rain jacket with you in case the occasional drizzle makes it way. Dallas is a very metropolitan area, so the chances of you needing camping gear are slim to none.

State Fair held each Fall.

by where2next

Big Tex stands tall out near the front entrance. The ferris wheel (see picture on main page) is also an attraction. The fairgrounds are very clean, though perhaps too structured as compared to other state fairs I've attended.

Shop Till You Drop

by starrlot about Dallas Galleria

There is absolutely no other place to shop in Dallas other than the Galleria. The valet parking is just a hint into the friendly service that you encounter inside the Galleria. Every single employee is knowledgable and will go the extra mile to cater to your every need. This is not for a single shop, but for the entire Galleria experience.

The Galleria is extremely handicapped friendly as well, this included every store. Saks Fifth Avenue - fragrance (Versace) and cosmetics (Dior), clothing. With my fragrance purchase, they currently have a gift with purchase that includes a signature tote filled with deluxe samples of designer products. She also showered me with numerous other deluxe samples that were to die for (expecially the VR Flower Bomb purse spray).

Nordstrom - skin care products (Philosophy and Bliss), men's cologne (Versace), and men's wear (they have a special line for young teenagers that my son loves). Samples, samples and more samples. My son has several months supplies of various colognes to help him choose his next fragrance.

Macy's - Gund Breast Cancer Awareness Month Kissy Dogs, holiday decorations

Louis Vuitton - Signature Trunk Case (I was disappointed that they did not have their cherry line since that is being reintroduced). I did receive a free key-chain.

Juicy Couture - handbag and t-shirts. When I mentioned I always have a bottle of Juicy in my fragrance collection, they showered me with a deluxe travel bottle of the fragrance.

Sephora - my absolute favorite place to shop! Make sure to sign up for their Beauty Insider ahead of time so that you can get a deluxe bonus product with your purchase. Some of my favorite product lines: Too Faced, Bare Escentials, Bourjois, Philosophy, Anastacsia

L'Occitane - I love their Shea Butter line, and they currently have a hand cream where $20 of the purchase cost goes to breast cancer research. My son loves their products as well, their products for men leave a exotic fresh scent that is like nothing else.

Earthbound Trading Company - their line of hookah's are terrific. Yes, I broke down and purchased one and several different flavors of tobacco. $1500-$2000 (if you like shopping like I do)

Dallas Alley

by keeweechic

Live music in the West End area. There is an outdoor courtyard with a stage at one end for performers during the summer.

There are also several bars and a Nice Day Cafe. One cover charge (around $8) gets you into eight touristy clubs and five live venues.

Note : Dallas Alley is now closed (2007)
