Staycation Destination: Dallas/Fort Worth

Favorite Picks for a Dallas/Fort Worth Staycation


Klyde Warren Park

  • There are a variety of food trucks each day. My favorites are Nammi, Ruthie’s and Coolhaus.
  • Music Thursdays are great for live entertainment.
  • Skyline 360 Tour of all the buildings you can see from KWP without walking!

Food Truck Yard

  • Check the website for visiting trucks and live music schedule.

George W. Bush Presidential Center

  • No matter your political affiliation, this is an amazingly moving place.
  • Grab a bite before or after your visit at Goff’s Hamburgers or Olivella’s in nearby University Park.

Urban Adventure Quest

  • We had so much fun searching for clues all over downtown Dallas with our mobile phone.
  • Warning: keep money on your parking meter or you will get a ticket.  We did.
  • There is a hunt for downtown Fort Worth too.

Fort Worth

Bureau of Engraving and Printing

  • This place is beyond cool and worth the drive.
  • Check out Fred’s Texas Café on the way home for a hot, one-of-a-kind burger.

Amon Carter Museum and Kimball Art Museum

  • Both the Amon Carter and Kimball are worth a visit.
  • Complete your cultural experience and visit Joe T. Garcia’s for some authentic, family-style Mexican food.

Casa Manana

  • I love this theatre for so many reasons: great shows, great seats and reasons great prices.
  • Pick up a burger at the original Rodeo Goat. Seriously, with a name like Rodeo Goat you have to go.
