It is good to be a dog in Texas. Over the past three weeks we have found some of our favorite destinations in the whole country and it was tough leaving those places behind. Here are some of the awesome places we’ll miss in Dallas:
Eko will definitely miss his steer buddies
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Dog Park - Bark Park - We visited Dallas’ three most popular dog parks, and while each one had something going for it, Bark Park won us over with it’s unique design and atmosphere. We always love it when dog parks can help make the community come together – even if it’s under a freeway.
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Tour – M-Line Trolley- Kick up your feet/paws on a ride in one of Dallas’ historic trolleys. There is no better way to get a (free!) tour of Uptown and your pup will enjoy cruising the streets in style as much as you do.
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Time Travel Trip – Heritage Village - For nine bucks you can take a stroll through time to see how Texans lived in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The grounds are a great place for a walk and you can check out some really cool historic homes on the way.
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Park – Pioneer Paza- It’s worth the trip just to see the bronze statues, but the plaza also has a Civil War era cemetery and plenty of green space. If you’re downtown, you should definitely swing by.
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Hotel – Aloft - One word: perch. Thanks to Aloft, I may have to build a permanent perch for Eko when we aren’t living in a car anymore. Aloft is a cool hotel in the heart of downtown and it puts you close to Bark Park and tons of other great spots.
In sum: Texas you have a special place in our hearts and you have set the bar for the rest of the trip!
We dodged some flash floods getting to OKC and it now looks like we may have to contend with Thunderstorms for the week. But if Ben Franklin and his key could handle it, then Eko and I got this no problem.
