While a trip to Dallas sounds good in any season, there is just something special about Texas in springtime. Bluebonnets are in bloom and bustling patios are begging to be enjoyed when the temps take a turn for the warmer. There is no need to hurry inside to escape the cold or hide from the summer sun during this time of year, making it a perfect season for some solo rest and relaxation.
Check in for your stay at The Kimpton Pittman Hotel

Tucked in one of Dallas' most exciting neighborhoods with immediate proximity to some of the city's best breweries, music venues and restaurants, a stay at The Kimpton Pittman Hotel is guaranteed to offer respite from the daily grind with signature mattresses, luxury linens and yoga mats in every room while keeping you close to all the action and entertainment Dallas has to offer.
Pre-dinner cocktail at Ebb & Flow
Get the lay of the land and wander over to Ebb & Flow for a fancy first look at the Deep Ellum neighborhood.

Dine at Yellow Rosa
Another hidden gem new to the Deep Ellum scene is the Yellow Rosa, a speak-easy style bar/restaurant inspired by the beaches of Tulum and the cantinas of San Miguel de Allende. This beautifully designed space has a retractable roof for the ultimate indoor/outdoor dining experience and an intimate atmosphere to keep things nice and cozy. With plenty of tacos to sample (pro tip: get the puffy taco) and a cocktail menu that is out of this world, Yellow Rosa is the perfect place to dine as a party of one.

Caffeine Pick Me Up
For a post-massage pick me up before getting ready to indulge in a Saturday night in the Big D, stop by Fiction Coffee and grab a story-themed latte such as the Junie B, a cold-brew, oatmilk and juniper syrup concoction or The Star-Crossed Lover with double espresso and brown sugar syrup. This locally loved coffee shop will make you feel right at home.

Hang out at Henry's Majestic
Consistently named one of the best brunches in Dallas, Henry's Majestic is a great place to enjoy what Dallasites do best: Sunday Brunch. Treat yourself to one of their amazing brunch drinks such as a breakfast martini or a key lime mimosa and order from their extensive menu of brunchtime favorites. The Majestic Egg Double Double and the PB&J Waffles are just two of the many delicious dishes you can try.
Au Revoir at the Arboretum
Before taking off and heading back home, spend an hour our two wandering among the flowers at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. During the spring, the arboretum hosts one of the largest floral festivals in the Southwest, Dallas Blooms. A treat for the senses, feast your eyes on hundreds of thousands of tulips, azaleas and other brightly hued springtime blooms. Sit down for a spell on the lawn overlooking White Rock Lake and the Dallas skyline and take time to reflect on a weekend well spent!
