Posted on Jan 9, 2018 By Jamina Tribbett
Many think of the New Year as a fresh start – a chance to be better, do better and feel better. In 2018, make your personal goals fun to complete right here in Dallas.
Resolution #1: Eat Healthy
Eating healthier can be hard especially when you have to prepare every meal. When you're not in the mood to cook, head to True Food Kitchen in North Dallas for fresh and flavorful fare with a full bar that includes seasonal cocktails made using fresh-pressed fruit and vegetable juices paired with organic spirits. Looking for a fun dining experience? Head to Cosmic Café in Oak Lawn for Indian vegetarian eats and smoothies and attend one of their on-site yoga classes to fuel your mind, body and soul. If you want a quick and convenient meal, stop by Gather Kitchen in Downtown for a wholesome bowl with your pick of protein, veggies and sauce prepared in minutes.
Resolution #2: Get Active
Let's face it – getting to the gym is often cumbersome. So make exercise fun by going to a free workout class at Klyde Warren Park, like Zumba, yoga or Tai Chi. Take a trip to the Dallas Farmers Market for a yoga class then shop around for some fresh foods and unique finds. Go on a bike ride or jog on the Katy Trail, Trinity River Audubon Center or one of our many other trails. There are also plenty of fun runs and marathons this year in Dallas including the Color Run on March 10, the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon on March 25, 5k Foam Fest on April 14 and the Dallas Mud Run on Nov. 11.
Resolution #3: Save Money
Having fun doesn't mean you have to break the bank. Spend some time exploring the best of Dallas for free! The Crow Collection of Asian Art, Dallas Museum of Art and the African American Museum all offer free admission. It also doesn't cost anything to take a great selfie, and Deep Ellum offers the perfect backdrop with stunning street art. If you need some fresh air, spend some time outdoors at the Ron Kirk Pedestrian Bridge or Main Street Garden Park. Make your plans for all things free with our updated guide.
Resolution #4: Be Adventurous
Whether you're a local or a first-time visitor, there is always a new experience to be had in Dallas. For the outdoor enthusiasts, head to the Trinity Forest Adventure Park for fun obstacle course challenges at the first and only Aerial Adventure Park of its kind in Texas. You can also kayak, bike and sail around White Rock Lake. Foodies will enjoy exploring Dallas through neighborhood food tours, such as Tacos and Margaritas Tour, Hidden Dallas Food and Fun Tour and Winery, Chocolate, Pizza & Live Music Tour. Visitors and Dallasites can also always explore the city's best attractions with the Dallas CityPASS.
