Have you been to Dallas-Fort Worth in the spring? If you haven’t made the trip yet, let this be your year. The DFW area has something for everyone and a wide variety of activities that you just can’t find anywhere else. One of them might even be enough to convince you to set down roots so you can enjoy everything the area has to offer!
Walk the Botanic Gardens
Dallas Blooms is one of the best spring flower festivals in the United States and one of the largest in the Southwest. It takes place at the Dallas Arboretum every year. There are over half a million tulips in bloom as well as a few hundred other flowers to delight your eyes – including cherry blossoms. Visitors can also enjoy live music, book signings, cooking classes, children’s activities, and more. When the shadows grow long, head over to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden for Lanterns in the Garden. Every evening in the springtime from 6 to 10 pm, the garden is illuminated with Chinese lanterns.
Visit the Reunion Tower
Take your Dallas-Fort Worth adventure to new heights by visiting the Reunion Tower. At 50 stories tall, the observation deck is a perfect place to watch the sunset year-round. You can also grab dinner or drinks. Choose the Cloud Nine café for laid-back options or try the upscale (and rotating), Asian-inspired restaurant from Wolfgang Puck, Five Sixty. Either way, you will have a memorable experience.
Walk the Margarita Mile
Wine tastings are a little 2000-and-late – at least this close to the border. When you are in Dallas, the margarita is king. In fact, Dallas is the Official Home of the Frozen Margarita. To demonstrate how serious Dallas is about the frozen concoction, Visit Dallas has an app to guide you through the city’s top 20 frozen margaritas. Follow along and experience the different neighborhoods in Dallas-Fort Worth.
Check Out a Festival
Spring in Dallas-Fort Worth is also a time for music and arts festivals. The Deep Ellum Arts Festival, the Downtown Plano Art & Wine Walk, the Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival, Plano Artfest, Art in the Square, the Allen Food & Wine Festival, and the Denton Art & Jazz Festival all take place in April. Festivities continue into May with the Wildflower Arts Festival, Kaboo Texas, Plano Asiafest, and the Off the Rails Country Music Fest.
