Day Trips from Dallas

As the semester quickly draws to a close, it’s important to take a step back and relax. Whether you want a quick day trip or a long weekend getaway, I’ve got some fun places for you! Grab your friends and hit the road!!

Texas Tulips

Located in Pilot Point, Texas Tulips is the super cute place you’ve most likely seen on your instagram feed. They are open all of March and beginning of April, so if you haven’t gone–hurry!

Historic Granbury Town Square

Now I may be a little biased (I grew up here!!), but Granbury’s square is a lovely, humble and quaint place to either spend a day or a long weekend. Recently, a fun boutique hotel called Hotel Lucy opened its doors for just that kind of occasion! The best part– it’s totally instagrammable! Check out Pearl Street Station while you’re there for the BEST food ever.
