Looking for a place to bring in the approaching spring season in full bloom? Check out these three local possibilities.

A Day at the Dallas Arboretum

Enjoy hundreds of thousands of flowers currently on display at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden as part of Dallas Blooms. The largest annual floral festival in the Southwest runs until April 8 and is expected to draw 220,000 visitors this season.

The Arboretum will continue to have a packed schedule as spring emerges. Easter weekend is full of events for children and adults alike, from petting zoos to live music and vendor markets.

The Dallas landmark will host its Cool Thursday Concert Series again this year, celebrating its 27th season. The first show kicks off on April 4, with Emerald City performing live.

“Grab your friends, pack a picnic, and make this your Thursday night routine. With the return of your favorites and some exciting new bands, you won’t be able to stay seated. That’s right – our dance floor is open!” says the event description.

Last year, Southern Living named the Arboretum one of “The Best Places to See Stunning Spring Blooms Across the South.”

Explore Deep Ellum on Foot

As the weather becomes more pleasant, explore the City’s cultural heart on foot to take in all it has to offer.

Check out Deep Ellum’s many shops and galleries, like Warstic, a unique baseball bat company co-owned by musician Jack White and former professional baseball player Ben Jenkins.

Deep Ellum offers art for all canvases, including your body. Create the tattoo you always wanted at  Heart in Hand Gallery or Elm Street Tattoo.

Deep Ellum is a playground for music lovers. Unsure which establishment to visit? Consider grabbing a burger and beer at Adair’s Saloon while enjoying live sets seven nights a week.

Picnic at Klyde Warren Park

Enjoy the City’s dog-friendly park in Downtown Dallas, equivalent to roughly four football fields in size. Pack a picnic to enjoy a spread in the Texas sunshine, or eat from the many food options in the park, like Mi Cocina, a Tex-Mex spot with a patio.

Klyde Warren Park frequently hosts live entertainment, including concerts, theatre, dance performances, and outdoor films. Kids will love the Children’s Park, Butterfly Garden, and The Grove, a huge path offering ping pong, foosball, and pétanque.
