I’m so happy that summer is almost *officially* here (even though it has felt like summer for a while now in Dallas)! It always goes by SO fast, with working and traveling and more traveling – it always seems like the summer is over and I realize that I didn’t do nearly as many fun things as I had set out to at the beginning of the season. I really want to make a conscious effort to make more fun memories in Dallas this year, so this is going to be my attempt to do so! (I’m all about planned fun, haha, and maybe this will remind me to go do fun things instead of watching Parenthood again on Netflix because yes that’s what I’ve been doing for the past week.)
Summer 2018 Dallas Bucket List
Try a new fitness class. There are so many great ones to try and I want to find a fun one and give it a go! There are so many “fitness events” around Dallas where you try a class at a cool location and there’s snacks after, so I’ll be on the lookout for one of those. I keep being out of town for all the ones I’ve previously wanted to go to!
Explore flea markets. Not that I really need anything, but I do enjoy looking around a good flea market! I haven’t been to that many in Dallas, so this is the perfect opportunity to find some and see what treasures they have inside!
Visit a new museum. I’ve done a pretty good job over the last 3 years of visiting a lot of the “touristy” spots and museums, but there are still a few that I need to check out. I love fun facts and trivia and this is a great way to learn more.
Try some fun desserts. It seems like there are fun new desserts places popping up ALL THE TIME in Dallas, and I haven’t tried ANY of them! I need to get on that!
See the murals around town. There are so many great murals around town and I have seen like, none of them up close!
Hear live music. Nothing says summer like sitting outside on a patio with a cool drink while listening to some live music. I’m thinking this will need to happen at Truck Yard or the Rustic. Yes.
Try a new brunch spot. There are so many that keep opening up and I’m falling behind!!
Find a “go-to” coffee shop. And not Starbucks. I want to find a place I can go do some work and have a delicious drink at the same time. Not too loud, not too quiet… just right.
Walk the trails close to me. There are so many nature trails up in north Dallas and I want to try them! But not at night. And not alone. And not in the middle of the hot summer days. So… this one will be tricky, but I can do it!
