Is it a Good Idea to Spend Your Weekend in Dallas?
What’s not to love about Dallas? It’s got one of the best art districts anywhere in the world, for one. Moreover, the Dallas zoo and World Aquarium are in a league of their own.
If you’re in Dallas or in a nearby region—such as Houston, Austin, or Fort Worth—we think it’s a good idea to really explore this city. And if it’s the weekend, all the better!
Here’s all we would do in your place:
Visit the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden
Whether or not you’re a nature lover is besides the point. They have everything from annual events to educational programs for children over at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden.
You can find this ethereal botanical garden at 8525 Garland Road in East Dallas; the best part is that it’s easily accessible to the public. Since it is open on the weekends, it’s a win-win for you.
Intangible at the Sweet Tooth Hotel
Don’t let the name deceive you. It is more of an art exhibition—and one of a kind, at that. Intangible is a collection of yarn installations—that is to say, you will find hundreds of installations that have all been spurn by yarn. The fiber artists displayed at the Intangible are some of the best in the country—including some of the best female artists in the country. If you’re interested in female artists who are also adept at bringing unique visions to life, this is the place you want to be in on a weekend in Dallas.
Go Visit the Cube
If it sounds dystopian, it’s because it is. Most installations over at the Cube consist of lights, audio, and projections on a screen. In light of the pandemic, we got to see life in a completely different way than what we knew. Social distancing was part and parcel of surviving 2020. The Cube takes that to a whole new level and turns that into an artistic masterpiece.
A Dallas Black History Tour
Finally, it’s never too late to educate oneself more about the gross injustices that have wreaked—and that continue to wreak—havoc in this nation. A Dallas Black History tour is an educational, informative, and important undertaking. It fills you with sobriety as it educates you, and leaves you with greater respect for the many sacrifices that have been made for this nation.
