Things to do in Dallas
Explore the great outdoors: With such a large population, it’s easy to think of Dallas as a hustling, bustling metropolis. To some degree, it is. But there are various outdoor activities to enjoy in and surrounding the city. Here are a few you’ll want to check out:
- Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens
- White Rock Lake Park
- Katy Trail
- Klyde Warren Park
- Cedar Ridge Preserve
Immerse yourself in culture: From art museums to stunning architecture, delicious food, famous breweries, and major sports teams, Dallas has it all. Downtown, you can spend a day visiting the historic Dallas Cattle Drive Sculptures, numerous art galleries, and antique shopping. All while stopping to enjoy a sit-down meal or tour through the farmer’s market.
A variety of living options
Dallas has various living options. Where you want to look for homes depends on the atmosphere you want.
Central Dallas: This is where all the jam-packed downtown action is located. If you want to be at the center of the hustle and bustle, Central Dallas is your place. In just a short walk, you can get to your favorite restaurants, stores, and even the public transportation system.
Park Cities: Some of the wealthiest Dallas residents reside in Park Cities. Depending on your price range, this may or may not be the location for you. Park Cities is located just a few miles north of Dallas and is surrounded by top dining and shopping areas.
Oak Cliff: Here you’ll find revitalization and diversity. While some areas are obviously up-and-coming, other blocks in Oak Cliff still appear run-down. The addition of public transportation in this area adds to its potential for the future.
East Dallas: This is your escape to the great outdoors in a metropolitan area. East Dallas neighborhoods are close to one of the few bodies of water near Dallas, White Rock Lake. The lake provides opportunities for kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, and picnicking in a reasonably-priced area.
