This summer I’ve been focusing on fun things to do that don’t break the bank, mostly thanks to dollars going toward my travel schedule (as I pack for Montana this weekend!), and recently I spent an enjoyable Saturday in Dallas that was filled with activity but little cost. If you’re looking for some local things to do to stay cool, feed your senses, get fit and unwind, I’ve got some suggestions on how to enrich your summer Saturdays.
First, I started with PiYo on the pool deck at the W Hotel with Brittani Rettig of Grit by Brit. This class is FREE and kicks your booty, all while enjoying one of the best views in the city. Not a bad way to get moving in the morning.
After my sweat session, Johnny and I strolled through the Dallas Farmers Market to stock up on some fresh fruit and veggies. There’s plenty to eat while you’re there, though I opted for a smoothie with some of my purchase when we got home.
I’ve been volunteering at the Dallas Museum of Art and was there for the afternoon, which reminded me of how cool the temperature in there is, with plenty of interesting rooms to explore away from the Texas heat. Now that the admission is free, it’s a great place to stop in for the afternoon before taking a stroll through Klyde Warren Park.
That night we headed to The Rustic to see Waterloo Revival and I tasted their newest refreshing cocktail – a margarita sangria swirl, paired with a sangria popsicle. As one of the only local spots playing live music, The Rustic is great for casual Saturday nights as you sway along in the backyard. Check out the concert schedule here to see who’s playing next.
There’s plenty more to do in Dallas that won’t break the bank, all while filling your Saturday with a variety of entertainment. Have some suggestions of your own? Leave ‘em in the comments and keep it cool this summer, Dallas!
