4 Free Things To Do in Dallas This Summer

Summer is an expensive time for everyone. Kids are out of school, so they need to be fed and entertained. Not to mention the electric bills that bring tears to your eyes every month. If a little research is done, you’ll find that there are plenty of free things to do in your area.

Below, we’ve given you four free things to do in Dallas this summer, because who doesn’t love free things?

Thanksgiving Square
Nestled in the heart of downtown Dallas, Thanksgiving Square is an excellent place to take your kids. The square is free and offers beautiful stained-glass architecture with an even more beautiful meaning. Thanksgiving Square – if you couldn’t already tell by the name – pays tribute to the act of giving thanks across the country and across the world. So if you’re up for some gorgeous artwork and teaching your kids a valuable lesson in being grateful, then you should give Thanksgiving Square a try – it’s free!

Museums
There are more than 30 museums in Dallas alone – each of them specializing in a specific part of history or art. For children, there is the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. Kids under the age of 2 get in free there.

The Sixth Floor Museum at Delaney Plaza
This museum, although it should fall within the “museums” category, stands out enough to be mentioned on its own. The Sixth Floor Museum and Delaney Plaza gives information and history of the John F. Kennedy assassination that occurred in Delaney Plaza. The story told about the incident is informative as well as interesting. Adults need a ticket, but children under 5 get in free. I would recommend this exhibit for guests of most age groups and varying interests. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

North Park
Window shopping is always free! Head over North Park Mall and roam. There are plenty of stores to keep someone of all ages occupied, and the mall has works of art placed throughout the property to enlighten curious guests.
