In the last few weeks I have done a lot of things in and around Dallas. I've eaten at Screen Door, ALÓ, Royal Thai, and other spots. I've done some hiking at the Cedar Ridge Preserve, hung out at the Loft at Gilleys, and taken in the view of our skyline from Oak Cliff to the top of the Mercantile (see the header pic of this blog).
We have a lot to do in this town. Now that it's summer, it's time to go sit out on the lawn at Nasher and take in a movie or two as we did last year. I'm really looking forward to the completion of Main Street Gardens (though it's a little ways from being open), which replaced a hideous block of buildings in the middle of downtown. The Dallas CityArts festival is coming in two weekends.
Until I saw the news on Saturday, I completely forgot about the 7-acre park in the Arts District that will be completed in four months. And there's much more to do than I've listed. By the way, several of the things I've listed are FREE!
Life is what you make it. Dallas has a lot to see and do, don't let it pass you by!
