Posted on Aug 25, 2020 By Ashley Turner

Friday
Dine on the patio 
The weekend is here! Meet up with a few of your closest for an evening on a Dallas patio. Our picks:
Chelsea's Corner in Uptown for good ol' American classics like pizza, burgers, and shareable apps – charcuterie board anyone?
El Bolero in the Design District for authentic Mexican dishes and specialty cocktails.
Jaxon Beer Garden in the AT&T Discovery District for Texas-inspired cuisine and craft beer.

Saturday
Spend the day outdoors
Take your bike out to White Rock Lake for a ride around the park, then spend some time visiting the East Dallas neighborhood for an adventure in the city. Lunch and a walk down Lower Greenville sounds good to us!

Visit Dallas' famous landmarks or discover some hidden gems for a fun adventure in the city. Lace up your best walking shoes and take in the city's notable history and architecture.

Sunday
Visit a local museum
A lot of museums have recently, safely reopened their doors and are ready to welcome you! The Dallas Museum of Art is now open for weekends only with plenty of new safety measures to ensure a great experience. Reserve your free timed tickets here!

Check out the Frontiers of Flight Museum for a lesson on aviation and space flight. The museum features various exhibits and educational programming for all ages.

If you haven't visited the new Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum, now's your time. The beautiful state-of-the-art museum walks you through an important time in our history through an interactive and immersive journey – it's a must-see experience.

Monday
Happy Labor Day! Take it easy. Enjoy your time with family and friends at home. Order take out or delivery to continue supporting local businesses, and maybe even sip on your favorite cocktail (a margarita, of course) with a take-home kit from one of our Margarita Mile partners.
