Book Now, Travel Later
Americans leave nearly a third of their PTO unused each year. Make the change this year by planning out your vacation days on National Plan For Vacation Day on Jan. 25.
Locals can partake too! A staycation is still a vacation. Take mid-week PTO to rediscover your own city. It's the change of scenery you deserve, right here at home.

Wander over to the West End Historic District, stopping to take in the key sites related to President John F. Kennedy's 1963 assassination. Just outside the former School Book Depository is the infamous 'grassy knoll' where an indelible mark was left on history. Nearby is the John F. Kennedy Memorial. Designed by family friend and renowned architect Phillip Johnson, the memorial is an open-roofed, concrete-walled monument symbolic of an open tomb.
See the Arts District
Head to the Dallas Arts District, the nation's largest urban arts district, spanning 19 contiguous blocks and home to eye-popping architecture and incredible museums. Wander through the Dallas Museum of Art, where you can step into five rooms recreated with furnishings and art from Coco Chanel's 1927 Mediterranean Villa La Pausa. Walk to the Nasher Sculpture Center, where the quiet ambiance of their outdoor sculpture garden will provide a moment of escape and relaxation.
Nightlife in Oak Lawn
Make it a night to remember in Oak Lawn, the heart of the Dallas LGBTQ+ community and nightlife for more than three decades. Get your boots scooting with dance lessons at the Round-Up Saloon, boasting the best-looking cowboys for 34 years. Ready for round two? Join the rollicking dance party and drag shows at Dallas Woody's or enjoy live music at Sue Ellen's.
Head across acclaimed architect-engineer Santiago Calatrava's soaring Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge to Trinity Groves in West Dallas. Grab a drink at ArtPark and relax before dining at Beto & Son, a chef-inspired new-generation Mexican restaurant in Trinity Groves.
Afterward, indulge in hand-painted chocolates and house-made ice cream from Kate Weiser Chocolate. The luxurious confections almost look too good to eat, though you'll certainly find a way. Handpick some for your bestie back home –perhaps lavender ganache with apricot – or save them for yourself.
