Do you find yourself glued to your couch Monday nights, watching the latest rose ceremonies, one-on-one dates and contestant drama on this season of The Bachelorette? Same. And since this season features one of Dallas' very own, we're recreating Rachel's dates!


Date No. 1: Sweet as Sugar Boutique
West Village

Hop on the McKinney Avenue Trolley to West Village for a Saturday afternoon shopping trip. Rachel and Peter visit Sweet as Sugar Boutique, a popular children's store with a collection of sassy onesies and trendy tees.

Your next stop should be: The Rustic 

If shopping afternoon worked up your appetite, then grab a seat on the patio at The Rustic; a huge outdoor music venue and restaurant that's a top spot in Uptown. Order a pint of one of their fan favorites like Local Buzz by Four Corner Brewery in Trinity Groves. Snack on a bowl of the double queso, a hearty serving of both cold pimento cheese dip and a creamy chipotle garlic queso, perfect for sharing with your date.



Date No. 2: Reunion Tower GeO-Deck

Not many things can top panoramic views of a city's skyline, and Rachel showed Eric the best way to experience Dallas at the Reunion Tower GeO-Deck. And as if those spectacular views weren't enough, Reunion Tower GeO-Deck gets better every time you go. Their latest experience, Constellation, allows you to write your love in the stars with a personalized design based on each of your visits. Over time, your visits (marked with a single star) create a glowing constellation.

Your next stop should be: Trinity Groves  

Go for elevated Mexican cuisine at Beto & Son or BBQ delight at Babb Brothers. If vegan is your scene, V-Eats is your place: the recently opened restaurant focuses on plant-based dishes that will curb your appetite. Top off dinner with dessert at Cake Bar and then enjoy a romantic walk on the Ron Kirk Pedestrian Bridge.



Date No. 3: HG SPLY CO
Lower Greenville

Brunch is a big deal in Dallas and HG SPLY CO has to be on your list during your visit, just like it was for Rachel and Bryan. Ask for a table on the rooftop and experience another picturesque view of Downtown while sipping on mimosas.
