Things to Do In Dallas
Dallas is full of art museums, shopping destinations, and professional sports teams. When it comes to outdoor activities, there is something for everyone.
If you are a jogger or a runner, The Katy Trail is the perfect spot. One can opt to go for a run, bike ride, or just a nice walk. The Katy Trail extends 3.5 miles from Highland Park through Uptown and to the American Airlines Center. If you walk down the trail long enough, there is a nice reward at the end, The Katy Trail Ice House, where you can reward your efforts with a nice cold beer! Just be sure to maintain social distance at all times.
If you are a history buff, then a history lesson at Dealey Plaza may be in order. It’s an important part of history that's worth exploring, as this is the spot where JFK was assassinated. When you’ve finished walking the street, you can tour the Sixth Floor Museum. The museum has numerous historical exhibits pertaining to the assassination. Although this museum is currently closed, be sure to visit their website to stay up to date about their re-opening.
Whether you are looking to indulge in the world of cowboys, or partake in an afternoon of history lessons, Dallas offers a little something for everyone.
