Fun Things To Do in Dallas, TX
Last weekend my husband and I went to Dallas, Texas to one of our friend’s wedding. This was our first time at the Lone Star State, and it didn’t disappoint. We had so much fun every day, and we tried to do as much things as possible.
Today, I’m going to share with you the things we did and the places we went to. I hope you find this guide helpful, and you try it when you go on your next vacation to this beautiful city.
Let’s begin with…
1. The Sixth Floor Museum/Texas School Book Depository and John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza
Most people will make this poignant visit when they visit Dallas. The Sixth Floor Museum documents the much loved President John F. Kennedy’s assassination and legacy, housing many facts about the tragic day as well as covering the President’s early life and presidential policies.
The other fun thing to do while you’re there is to take some photos at the Memorial Plaza that it’s in front of the building.

2. Dallas Museum of Art
Treat the family to a stop at this wonderful museum! Home to over 23,000 works of art spanning 5,000 years of humanity from all cultures, this entrance fee free museum is home to a permanent collection of masterpieces which include Picasso, Rodin, Monet, Gauguin and many more, as well as constantly changing galleries which showcase the many areas of World Art from Greek and Roman to African, American, Asian and Western European.
There is even a collection ab out Dior’s designs. So, if you’re a fashionista, you can’t miss this (wink).

3. Reunion Tower
To get a really great view of Dallas, why not visit Reunion Tower? This is one of the best known Dallas landmarks, reaching the dizzy height of 561 feet, making it the city’s 15th tallest building. The family can enjoy a 360 degree view of the city as the Tower’s platform revolves. If you’re in Dallas, you don’t want to miss this!
4. Deep Ellum and all its murals!
OK…I don’t know where to begin with this place. It’s a hipster neighborhood with the best art, restaurants and bars, I think in all Dallas! You can start your evening at one of the restaurants we went to. I will start with Pecan Lodge it is the BEST BBQ restaurant in the world! It has the most delicious pork ribs and brisket I’ve ever tried.
Another GREAT option with the most DELICIOSOS TACOS is Revolver Taco Lounge . “The Pulpo” (Octopus) and “carne asada” tacos are a must while you’re there. And I can’t forget to mention that you’re going to feel at home if you’re invited to eat at the back of the restaurant (it has that Hogar Dulce Hogar feeling).
If you go during the summer, you’ll need a refreshing alcohol infused from Picole Pops. You definitely going to feel a little tipsy after one pop (or at least that’s how I felt).
In conclusion, this has to be on your list of places to go while you’re in Dallas.

5. Giant Eyeball
Chicago has its Bean, and Dallas has its Giant Eyeball. It’s a fun and different attraction to see in Dallas. I really liked all the details in the eye. On the walk there, you can stop at the Main Street Garden Park. It’s a nice spot to enjoy some views of Dallas buildings and to rest a little bit before your next attraction.
6. Pioneer Plaza
The idea for these iconic “Western type” sculptures came from Trammell Crow, a very imaginative real estate developer, and the end result is really fascinating, with realistic statues and sculptures of horse back roping cowboys, large longhorn cattle and trail drivers.
It is certainly worth a brief stop when you’re in town.
7. Trinity Groves/ Walk through the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge
This is a must while you’re in Dallas. You can start at Beto and Son with some delicious Mexican Food and their famous Frozen Nitro Rita. You won’t forget the experience and the refreshing taste of that “endless” Margarita. I cannot forget to mention that this restaurant was the creator of the Margarita Mile. After you finish your food, you can walk through the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. It offers spectacular views of Downtown Dallas and a nice walk through Trinity River.
8. The Rustic
Patio with great music, delicious food and the best Margarita of The Margarita Mile (that’s my humble opinion). One Margarita and I was ready to partying all night! ‘The Rimy Rita” is the one you don’t want to miss.
(I don’t have a photo, because I was enjoying my Margarita…wink!).
