The Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area is one of the fastest growing in the nation and is known for its unique history, delicious BBQ, and sports culture. With spring approaching and the end of a cold winter snap, families and couples are looking to get out on the town for some spring activities. Whether you’re in town visiting the Dallas area or are looking for a fun staycation, you’ll love these spring activities:

Visit the spring blooms at The Dallas Arboretum

Spring blooms symbolize new beginnings and rebirth, so there’s no better way to ring in the new season than a stroll through The Dallas Arboretum This 66-acre botanical garden is a must-see for families and is located on the southeastern shore of White Rock Lake. While you’re there, don’t forget to take photos on the Texas-themed playground decked out in teepees and mudhuts. You’ll also want to plan on taking pictures of the half-million blooming tulips, pansies, daffodils and azaleas. Be sure to stop by the bridge in front of the cottages for a stunning spring photo that’s Instagram-worthy.

This budget-friendly activity is the best way to ring in the new season without breaking the bank. Admission prices range from $12-$20 for adults in the spring and just $10 for kids ages 3-12. Children under 3 get in for free.

Kayak the Trinity River

Nothing says spring break like a bit of an exciting kayak adventure that gives you a brief taste of summer. Try renting paddle boards to navigate the Trinity River through the Trinity River Audubon Center. There are two-hour kayak tours available during the weekends in the spring. If a guided tour isn’t your thing, rent a kayak and explore the river yourself.

This amazing center is located just 10 miles south of Downtown Texas and is the best place to explore the 6,000-acre Trinity Forest. The center sits on a former illegal dump site that’s successfully been reclaimed as a haven for birds and other wildlife native to the Dallas, Texas area. During your visit, you may even see turtles, ducks and even deer! Once you’re done with the river, take a hike on one of the five miles of nature viewing trails and visit the butterfly garden. Don’t forget to donate to the Trinity River Audubon Center because your money goes straight to conservation efforts through the City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department.

Enjoy a Texas Rangers Game

A spring tradition in Texas is catching a Texas Rangers game at Globe Life Park in Arlington. Spring training starts in late February, and opening day is March 30 against the Philadelphia Phillies. During your visit to Globe Life Park, be sure to participate in tailgating events, view spectacular fireworks and enjoy delicious snacks like a 2-foot-long hot dog and giant turkey leg.

If you want to get even fancier with food and beverages, try the beer bat (yes, this is a giant bat filled with your favorite beer), cornbread chili pie dog, mac and cheese nachos and chicken fried brisket sandwich. There’s nothing better than a good ball game and southern comfort food!
