It’s Summer Time!

By | July 12, 2013

Summer is finally here! The good thing is that there is an endless amount of activities to do in Dallas. Personally, I am tired of the whole “bar scene” in Dallas, so finding different and unique alternatives is just what I need. Here are just a few to get youstarted:
Klyde Warren Park
If you’re looking for a relaxing afternoon in the sun or just want a quick bite to eat, Klyde Warren Park is the place to be! There are so many things to do for people of all ages (even your furry friend); you’ll never be bored. And, be sure to try one of the many food trucks parked there on a daily basis.
Perot Museum of Nature and Science
I’m sure you’ve seen the “cool-looking” building right off Woodall Rodgers Freeway and thought to yourself, “I need to go there!” Well, now’s your chance. Stop by the Perot Museum of Nature and Science for some educational fun! This museum just opened its doors last December, and is already a big hit! I mean, who doesn’t love dinosaurs and interactive robots?
Dallas Arboretum
If you love music as much as I do, come to the Concerts at the Arboretum every Tuesday and Thursday night all summer long! There are a variety of local bands from across the DFW area that come and play. Bring your family and friends for a night of awesome music.
Texas Rangers
Despite what Josh Hamilton says, Arlington is a baseball town! So, put on your Texas Rangers gear and head over to the Rangers Ballpark just 20 minutes west of Dallas. This is another great way to enjoy the outdoors and watch a great game of baseball. Just be sure to plan accordingly for the Texas heat if you’re going during the day.
White Rock Local Market 
I am always in search of fresh, organic, local foods to stay healthy. So obviously, I was ecstatic when I found this gem. Visit White Rock Local Market at Green Spot every second and fourth Saturday of the month all summer and support your local growers.
