Things to Do in Dallas

I’m from Big D, my oh yes.Big D, little a, double l-a-s!

If you're young, you've never heard this song, so you might wonder why  Dallas is known as Big D? Maybe because we do things big here! On any given day, there's a big list of things to do in Dallas, whether you're here for a day, or here to stay.

You might want to go "full tourist" or maybe you want to experience Dallas like a local. You might want to see some of our larger-than-life attractions and sights, or like me, you might just love the smaller side of Big D too. The Dallas restaurant scene offers just about every kind of cuisine and every kind of ambience you could want. And shopping? Well, that was practically invented here.

You'll find fun things to do in Dallas whether you're here for a night out, a vacation, a staycation, a convention or a business trip. I'll help you make a bucket list of oh-so-Dallas things to do, or you can follow along as I check off my own Dallas bucket list.

I'm here to help you discover all the charms of Dallas - big and small. I hope you'll visit InBigD.com often to help you find YOUR happy in Big D!

 

In this mural, you can see some of the beautiful public art you'll find in Dallas, which is a big focus on my site, all the time! And of course, front and center is Dallas's biggest icon, a red Pegasus. And look, we saved you a parking spot! Dallas has a few stories to tell, including why everyone loves the "flying red horse."

I'll show you a few Dallas sights and hidden treasures and how you can enjoy them while social distancing. Even when things return to "normal," I'll still be taking pics through the car window to share.

I'll also be sharing photo galleries of the  many Dallas murals I've spied. And don't worry - I'll share the locations so you can find them too!

Dallas doesn't really have seasons, but if you're looking for the most timely things to do, here's your chance.

I'll share the big events coming up each month so you can make plans ahead of time. And if you're not into making plans, there are everyday things to do too.

Find Your Happy

When "normal life" is in disarray, the ability to "find your happy" is even more important. Everyday joy will always be a focus in my life and I'll always be sharing how to find it in one way or another. Look for ways to stay positive when times are tough. (I have a little bit of experience in this area.) I'm excited to share posts about things that are scientifically proven to make you happier, with some Dallas-specific happy stuff thrown in for good measure.
