Fun Things to Do in Dallas Instead of a Netflix Binge

Howdy ya’ll! That would be Texas speak for hello, lol.

I kinda wanted to touch on a few things I personally love other than the feeling you get when Netflix asks, “Are you still watching?” It’s a mixture of shame, worthlessness and guilt with a hint of twisted pride sprinkled on top.  So, I  have come up with the list of fun things to do in Dallas that will surely get you out of the house and make you fall in love with the Big D all over again.

Some say the best things in life are free (pretty sure it was Kanye, you may want to double-check). That seems questionable, as brisket and  ribs generally are not free, and are indisputably among life’s best things. That being said, it’s always nice to save money, then you’ll be able to afford more brisket and beef ribs. It’s very possible to entertain yourself in Dallas while spending nothing or next to nothing, here’s how to do it. So, next time you feel like grabbing the snacks and Netflix binging try a few of these on for size.
