Top Things To Do in Dallas-Fort Worth

If there’s one word I’d use to describe Dallas, Fort Worth and the Metroplex – it’s big. Big hair, big cities, big football stadiums – even the nickname, Big D, is big.

So if you’re new to Dallas and haven’t made your way around town yet, let Move For Free help you out. We have thousands of apartments for rent in Dallas, and we’ve picked up a hint or two for having a great time there. Without further adieu, here are a few of our favorite things about DFW.

Klyde Warren Park

Leave it to Dallas to build a beautiful park on top of a highway! Klyde Warren Park opened late last year atop the Woodall Rogers Freeway right in the downtown area. The park features 5.2 acres of green space, food trucks, dog parks, walking trails and a performance pavilion. There are even free books to check out and read during the day. What better way to end your summer than a trip to the park?

Trinity Trail

If you’re a runner, check out the Trinity Trail in Fort Worth. Jump on near the TCU campus and run 4-5 miles straight into downtown. The scenery is gorgeous, the people are friendly and the exercise is always great.

Joe T. Garcia’s

Speaking of Fort Worth, don’t miss a chance to eat at the city’s most famous Mexican food spot. There’s no menu here – just the regular dinner (enchiladas, tacos, rice and beans) or beef/chicken fajitas. That’s it. Be prepared to make an evening of it. The wait to get in can reach an hour plus, but oh is it worth it.

Babe’s Chicken Dinner House

As for dining on the Dallas side of things, head over to one of the Babe’s Chicken Dinner House locations. We prefer the kitchen in beautiful downtown Carrollton. This place knows chicken, whether it’s fried, baked, grilled…you name it. Pick your style and then chow down on all you can eat sides and bread.

DFW is one of the most exciting places in the entire United States, so those are just a couple of the great things to do here. Live it up. Remember, everything is bigger in Texas. Especially in the Metroplex.
