Discovering Downtown Dallas

I’ve been living in Dallas for over 5 years now, and I have a confession to make. Until about two weeks ago, I’d never spent a day in downtown (and I only live about 5 minutes away).

Downtown Dallas is a little bit scary. Not because it’s actually scary, but there are so many one way streets, a million different freeways and absolutely zero parking. It’s overwhelming.

However, I created The List to force me out of my comfort zone and into complete adulthood. So two weekends ago I ventured into downtown Dallas to check two things of my list: museums and visiting the new park on top of the freeway, Klyde Warren Park.

I loved it. The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) is amazing, and it has a ton of free exhibitions. Turns out, Klyde Warren Park is right across the street and it also has free events almost every weekend. I will definitely be returning and even though I won’t find free parking, I’ll be a little less nervous about it.
