They’re open from 9am to 4pm and they’ve dropped their price of admission until February 28th to $8 per person! Children 2 years old and under are always free, as well as zoo members.

All tickets and memberships can be purchased directly from the zoo’s website, which is linked below.

One of the amazing things to do at the Dallas Zoo can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. They offer several virtual programs online as off-grounds programs cannot be held at this time. You’ll be able to meet various zoo animals from all over the planet in the new Virtual Animal Adventure and learn about them from the experts. This event is $200 and can hold up to 300 guests via Zoom. At this time, only virtual animal programs are offered at the Dallas Zoo until further notice.

This special early hour is only for zoo members, so be sure to purchase your membership beforehand.

If you’re an animal lover, you can “adopt” an animal from the zoo. Your gift helps to support the Dallas Zoo’s participation in Species Survival Plans (SSPs), which greatly helps endangered species all throughout the world. Once you’ve adopted an animal, it remains in custody of the zoo and no ownership rights are transferred. You are simply paying for the right to help take care of that specific animal. The good news is you are able to choose which animal you “adopt”! Your choices range from an African Elephant, to an African Lion, and from a Nile Hippo to a Chimpanzee. Adoption fees range from $50 for a Meerkat to $125 for a Reticulated Giraffe.

If you’d like the Dallas Zoo to host your event, be it a corporate meeting, a birthday party, or a wedding, they’ll help you take care of it all, including the price of admission, the catered menu, and a themed adventure.

Five Awesome Ways to Celebrate Galentine’s 2021 in Dallas

Valentine’s Day is coming up next month, but roses, chocolate, and Hallmark cards aren’t for everyone. If you’d rather round up your best gal pals and celebrate the joys of female friendship on Galentine’s Day, read on, because we’ve rounded up five fun ways to celebrate with your girls this year in Dallas!

Petra and the Beast

A classic way to spend the evening is dinner and drinks at a renowned restaurant. For one of the most accoladed restaurants in Dallas, you’ll want to head to Petra and the Beast, a New American restaurant serving up experimental dishes. Chef Misti Norris was in the running for the Best Chef: Texas category of the James Beard awards this past year. If you’d rather host your party at home, you can order a delicious farm-to-table meal for takeout here.

Dixie House Café

If you’re looking for a more mom-and-pop type restaurant, Dixie House Café is the place to go. This family-owned joint has been serving up “real home cooking” since 1983 when it was started by a husband-and-wife team. Since then, they’ve expanded to six locations, but haven’t sacrificed quality. They still prepare everything fresh daily. They’re known for their chicken fried steak, but if you want to stay true to Galentines’ Parks and Recreation roots and order some waffles, they also serve breakfast all day!

Lakeside Park

If you’re trying to be safe due to COVID-19, an outdoor celebration is the way to go. For the best location, have your gal pals meet you a bit north of the city center at Lakeside Park. The 14-acre park runs alongside Turtle Creek and is beautifully landscaped. It’s truly a lovely spot to relax and enjoy the scenery. After you eat, you can take a stroll on one of the many walking paths that go through the park, and maybe even visit one of its famous teddy bear statues.

Lone Star Pedal Bar

If your friends aren’t content to just sit around and chat, you’re going to want an activity to get everyone moving. A really fun activity for you and your gal pals is to rent a party bike! At Lone Star Pedal Bar, you and your friends can bike from bar to bar. It’s a great way to get around safely while indulging in alcohol, take in lots of fresh air, and have fun doing something different. The rental comes with a sound system, lights, and a driver to steer while you pedal.

Nasher Sculpture Center

If you want something unique to do, spend your day getting cultured at Nasher Sculpture Center. Both the indoor galleries and the outdoor sculpture garden have reopened to the pubic with social distancing measure in place, and the center is also offering at-home programming like arts and crafts and performances by local musicians. There’s really something for everyone! And if you don’t mind celebrating Galentine’s Day a bit late, check out their Art with Friends: Art and Love event on February 24th.

With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, many party-goers are trying to plan out how they will ring in the new year and still keep the party safe and festive.

Most of us will find ourselves celebrating New Year’s at home this year.  However, that doesn’t mean that the party has to be put on hold.  With the age of the internet, why not take your party to the next level and have a virtual get-together. 

With a little creativity and the use of the internet, you can have your food and drinks delivered right to you, or those party guests from out of town.

The extra added advantage is that everyone can join in the fun as no designated drivers are needed, and once the party is over, hey, your already home.

Great Places to Buy Gifts Traveling to Dallas

The holiday season is upon us! That means family time, cozy nights by the fire, baked goods…and scrambling to buy presents! But here’s an idea for you -save some time by grouping your holiday travel and holiday shopping!

If you’re traveling to Dallas this holiday season, we’ve compiled a few local stores you absolutely must check out for your holiday gift needs. You’ll get to explore a new place, avoid the online shopping shipping wait, and best yet -by shopping small you’ll be supporting the local economy and small business owners!

Jade & Clover

This gift shop has a “curated AF” selection of gifts and accessories, but where Jade & Clover really shines is with their houseplant selection. And shopping for plants at Jade & Clover is anything but boring. They have a Plant Bar that’s “like Build-a-Bear, but with plants,” where you can design a beautiful terrarium full of succulents.

Sweets and Treats

One of the most comforting part of the holidays is, of course, the food. And for the person who has everything already, you can’t go wrong with gifting something delectable for them to eat! Here are some great small businesses where you can find just that -and, they’re all Latinx-owned so that you can give back to this community whose culture influences so much of the North Texas area.

·        If you need to satisfy someone with a serious sweet tooth, go to CocoAndré. Founded by master truffle-creator Andrea Pedraza and run by her and her daughter, the shop produces chocolates that blend traditional European techniques with modern Mexican flavors.

·        Croissant Queen Maricsa Trejo has been supplying Dallas-area coffee shops with pastries for a while and now you can get some of her to-die-for baked goods at her and her partner’s brick-and-mortar shop, La Casita Bakeshop. Make sure you pick up some Cruffins, her special croissant-muffin hybrid.

·        Does the foodie on your shopping list like to experiment in the kitchen? Then putting together a gift basket of spices, teas, peppers, salts, herbs, and chiles is in order! You can find all that at The Natural Spot in the Bishop Arts section of Dallas.

Talulah & HESS

This boutique has a selection of all kinds of gifts. You can find clothing, accessories, books, and home goods all with a creative and unexpected twist. Talulah & HESS also stocks prints with artwork from local designers. One thing to note is that they don’t give refunds -but they do offer free gift-wrapping if you’re looking to save some time!

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport

Of course, if your hectic holiday has you rushing straight from the plane to a family gathering, you won’t have time to browse through the boutiques in downtown Dallas. Don’t worry, the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport has you covered! Here are a few of the shops you’ll find inside:

·        If you’re shopping for a sports lover, be sure to visit the Dallas Cowboys Pro Shop in Terminal A or Emmitt Smith Sports in Terminal C.

·        If you’re shopping for a clothing lover, Ertekin Fashions in Terminal A has European designs for both men and women.

Renting Ebikes in Dallas, Texas

If you’re looking for an exciting new pastime to do while in Dallas, Texas, give an electric bike rental a try! Electric bikes, or ebikes as they are commonly called, are bicycles with a motor that help assist the operator while pedaling. This makes for a less strenuous ride and an easier time going up hills or traversing harder terrain. Thankfully, Texas law does not view ebikes in the same vein as scooters or mopeds, and therefore they are allowed to go wherever bicycles can go, on the road, paths, or trails. Texas also does not require helmets when riding an ebike, nor is there an age restriction on who can ride an ebike.

Dallas used to be a major hub for bikeshare companies, with kiosks all about the city to rent your ebike easily, but alas, those days are gone. Uber’s JUMP bikeshare company pulled out of Dallas for unknown reasons, but never fear, there are still a few great places to rent ebikes for your next vacation adventure. All pertinent links are provided below!

Pedego Dallas is one of those options, open every day of the week except for Mondays and Tuesdays. They rent ebikes, as well as sell them. The cost for renting a normal electric bike is $20 an hour or $100 per day. If you’d like an electric mountain bike, the price is $35 an hour or $150 per day. Call or go online to book your rentals.

Pedego Electric Bikes Fort Worth is also an excellent choice. While they are the same chain, this store is located in Fort Worth, which might be easier to choose depending on where you are in the city. Several local bike shops do sell ebikes, but if you’d like to rent one in Dallas, Pedego is, hands down, your best choice for your next ride.

Where do you go to ride your ebikes once they’re rented and ready to go? We have a few suggestions. Reimer’s Ranch Trail is 13.2 miles long and winds through the scenic countryside of Texas. Get a taste of the Old West with this trail which cuts through grassy fields, woods, and picturesque waterways.

The San Gabriel River Trail and Goodwater Loop is 26.9 miles of trail that follows a beautiful river and a lake. This trail is rated as moderate and is good for small children or dogs. Hikers, pedestrians, or bikers are all welcome on this trail. You will not be disappointed with nature on full display! Get out of town and into the wild with this lovely bike trail.

Ebikes are easy to rent and ride in Dallas. For a grand old time, pick up a few ebikes for the day and have fun with your family making new and exciting memories!

Outdoor activities near Dallas TX

Spending time outside is a great feeling, for some, it may be daunting at first, but once you are out in the crisp air it can really heighten your mood. The air may be more hot than crisp in Dallas, but there are still ample reasons to get outdoors. If you are in the area and are looking for some ideas about outdoor activities near Dallas TX, then read on below for more information.

  1. TRINITY FOREST ADVENTURE PARK

We are starting with definitely one of the best outdoor activities in the city, the Trinity Forest Adventure Park. This is the only ariel adventure park in the whole state, so you are lucky to be able to go. The park has zip lines, rope bridges, and cargo nets, as well as other climbing features. You can swing from one side of the park to the other, and there are routes for all levels, so don’t worry about not being good enough.

  1. DALLAS BIKE PARTY

It’s not often that you hear the words bike and party together, but at this bike party, you can experience fully what that actually means. These are bikes that fit up to sixteen people, everyone sits around a center table, and as a team, you pedal around the city taking your guided tour. You can drink and have snacks, blast out your favorite tunes, and learn about the more historic parts of the city – if you are interested in that side of it, anyway.

  1. KATY TRAIL

This three and a half mile long trail offers some of the most beautiful scenery near the city. You can walk or bike, take your dogs, or even stop and have a picnic. There are historic monuments along the way, and the views are breathtaking. Even though it is well-known, there are still plenty of quiet spots where you can sit in peace and switch off from the world.

  1. DALLAS ZOO

It is not often that people will ever get to go to the savannahs of Africa in their life in order to see some of the world’s most awesome animals, or deep into the jungles to see the wonderfully exotic animals. So, the next best thing is the zoo. At Dallas Zoo, you can see hundreds of animals from giraffes and elephants, to monkeys and flamingos. There are also educational shows, and you can learn about how you can help the natural world.

  1. THE SPIRIT OF DALLAS

Check out White Rock Lake from a different perspective, with this wonderful sailboat experience. See the great views of the shoreline, unwind as you listen to the sound of the water rippling, and watch the sunset to end the day on a big high.

Dallas has so many things to offer by way of outdoor activities, and we have only been able to cover five of them. There are plenty more out there for you to take part in, and continue having fun, trying new things, or even learning about the area.
