It seems like we were just in New Orleans! Well, that’s because a month ago we were just in Louisiana. Four years ago, I only wished to someday travel. These days, I just decide where I want to go and I make it happen. That’s the difference between old Leah and the Leah now. Life is about now, so press play!

One of my good friends who I met through coaching was getting married just outside of Dallas so naturally, it was an excuse to get out of California! Before this Dallas trip, I scoured the internet looking for things to do in Dallas and found NADA! I’m huge in experiencing adventure and culture on all my trips and Dallas was proving to be a challenge based on my internet searches.

Nevertheless, we found things to do when we just went with the flow.

Things to eat

Flying Horse Cafe – Liquid Culture – I’m a coffee snob and their cold brew is pretty legit. They also serve a lot of sweets and are pretty popular for their smoothies.

Whataburger – A fast food chain from Texas that the locals love. The Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit is amazing. Just order two of it!

Lockhart Smokehouse BBQ – The bbq is by pound so you can order a little of everything. This is a must try and is very popular on Yelp!

Braindead Brewing – Nice selection of beer and you can even get a flight of beers with bacon!

Bobaddiction – Want to cool things off with boba and mochi? This place is in Deep Ellum.

Yucatan Taco Stand Tequila Bar & Grill – Service was so slow and they ended up giving our whole tab for free. The food was great though, and the server was very apologetic and friendly!

Hotel pool parties – Not even sure which one I went to, but Dallas has quite a few of these around.

JFK shooting – Go check out where JFK was assassinated.

Deep Ellum – This neighborhood I consider to be the art district and has a lot of murals, sculptures, breweries, and restaurants.

Pioneer Plaza – Contains a lot of bull sculptures and also a cemetery. This is where the heroes of Texas revolution were buried.

Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge – A lot of people run on this bridge. It’s great for taking pictures of the Dallas skyline.
