If you thought Earth Day was great, you’re in luck – this year, the whole month of April is Earth Month! And what better way to celebrate than by giving our lovely planet a break? If you’re looking for ways to reduce your carbon footprint this month, check out some great ways to have fun and give back with this list of things to do in Dallas that are easily accessible by foot or trolley. Leave the car keys behind, get outside, and take a deep breath of fresh, Dallas air!
The M-Line Trolley is a great way to get around without having to hop in a car. There are plenty of stops on the route that you can hop off and check out, then hop back on to get to more.
The roundabout stop at City Place is a great place to start, super close to many restaurants and shops in the West Village. Have a famous Margarita at Tacos And Tequila, catch an independent film at the Magnolia, shop to your heart’s desire at the countless boutiques, or grab a bite at one of the many other restaurants.
Hop back on the trolley to the Dallas Arts District, which features many restaurants, as well as the Winspear Opera House and Meyerson Symphony Center. From there, walk or hop on the trolley again to Klyde Warren Park, Dallas’ newest outdoor space. Featuring food trucks, restaurants, games, and seating, it’s the perfect place to unwind with a cold drink or quick bite.
Once you’re down perusing the park, head on over to the Dallas Museum of Art, right across the street. And directly adjacent lies the Nasher Sculpture Center, just two of many art museums in the city.
Artsy’d out? Hop back on the trolley to the West End Station, where you’ll discover plenty of walkable restaurants and great souvenir shops. (Did somebody say “cowboy boots”?) Check out a concert or basketball or hockey game at the American Airlines Center, or grab a couple cold ones at Dallas’s own Hard Rock Cafe.
Ready to roll? (or walk?) Get moving, and check the trolley schedule here. The trolley runs 365 days a week, and operating hours are Mondays through Thursdays from 7 a.m. to
