Dallas, Texas was the last stop of our Texas tour. We road tripped after landing and started in Houston then made our way to Austin, Waco and finally Dallas. We loved them all!! Every town has its own unique vibes. The food was great everywhere but was especially good in Dallas!!
Where To Stay:
First thing when we did when arriving in Dallas was check in and drop our bags off at the cutest little hotel called Texican Court, actually located just miles outside of Dallas in Irving, TX. This was the perfect location for us! Our activities were in Dallas and its suburbs of Fort Worth and Arlington so this location was nice and central! It was also SOOO cute!! A modern 70’s vibes and I loved every single bit of it!! They also had a super cute Restaurant and Cantina and outdoor firepits for s’mores at night!
Where To Eat:
Tacos Mariachi - You know it, all about the tacos! Delish! They are known for their shrimp & octopus tacos, so we tried both along with 2 meats. All great! Scotty loved the meat ones and I loved the shrimp.
Pecan Lodge - Waited in line for an hour and a half for this bbq and I wasn’t even mad about it! Totally worth every single minute! Come Hungry!
Smoky Rose - We ate here because it was A. adorable and B. right by the Dallas Arboretum. The appetizers were good but we were a little disappointed with our food. I had the Salmon BLT and Scotty had the Brisket (which we ate everywhere, so we may have just been on BBQ overload by this point!)
The Rustic - Known for their margarita with a popsicle in it! Super cute and Super strong! Food was great and live music, a fun night time vibe or a weekend hang!
Tribal All Day Café - A cute little coffee shop in a fun part of town that is getting a ton of new places built!
Other Places we didn’t have time to try but were highly recommended:
Nick & Sam’s
Marianos ( in Arlington & the first frozen marg!)
Deep Ellum Brewing Company
What To Do:
Dallas Arboretum - Such a gorgeous place to walk around and enjoy the beautiful flowers in every corner! Would be a great place to pick up food or pack a lunch and have a picnic on the grass overlooking the water and gorgeous flowers.
North Park Center - IF you are a shopping junky this is totally your place! It has all the shops you will be looking for in one place!
Trinity Groves - The perfect place to take pictures of the Dallas skyline
Dallas Cowboy Stadium Tour (or game if you visit that time of year!) - Such an incredible stadium to tour! Whether you are a fan or football or not you will want to see this place!
Texas Rangers Game - We travel all over the Country to visit each baseball stadium. So this stadium is number 19 on our quest for 30. We always get the most popular food at each park, which you can see if a 3 foot hot dog called the “boomstick”
Visit Fort Worth Stockyards - Such a cool experience, and the perfect place to pickup some cowboy boots or a new hat! We got to watch the cattle drive and if you are in town on Fri and Sat nights they have a rodeo year round.
Dallas Was such a great place to visit with SO much to see! We luckily narrowed it down to a weekend but be sure to let me know and everyone else who reads this if I missed anything! Xo, Amanda
