Buckle down for Dallas, an iconic Texas city that's bursting with local flavor and rich history.

Well-known for more than just football and cheerleaders, Dallas is home to an arsenal of up-and-coming restaurants, Southern staples, and yoga studios. The city also hosts a variety of museums and a massive 68-acre Dallas Arts District. You're guaranteed to leave feeling fed and cultured.

While the numerous options in this city might seem overwhelming, it's really hard to go wrong. There are great bars and music venues around just about every corner, and more malls per capita than any other city. Along with your help we've assembled some of our top choices below. Whether you're around for a weekend or a week, put on your walking shoes and go to town—it's going to be a memorable stay.

Where to Eat

Spiral Diner & Bakery
1101 N Beckley Ave., (214) 948-4747
Who doesn't love the comfort and vibe of an all-American diner? While these types of joints often only offer burgers and chocolate malts, Spiral Diner and Bakery offers vegan takes on diner classics. Fan favorites include the nachos, brownies, Philly cheesesteaks, and strawberry ice cream.

HG Sply Co.
2008 Greenville Ave., (469) 334-0896
HG Sply Co. utilizes the farm-to-table concept while simultaneously providing an intimate space for a delicious dinner. The four guys who own the place wanted to create a space where people could trade stories while enjoying nutritious, back-to-basics fare. The "hunter-gatherer" bowls are popular picks, where patrons can create custom meals with a "hunted" protein (think housemade quinoa burger or grilled Scottish salmon), along with a "gathered" signature base (veggie and herb combinations too mouthwatering to list). Um, yes please.

Pecan Lodge
2702 Main St., (214) 748-8900
You went to yoga and had your juice, now go get yourself some BBQ. If you’ve got a hankering for authentic Texas flavor, look no further than Pecan Lodge. The vibe is loud and lively, and no one cares if you’ve got a napkin on your lap. Enjoy a spot outside along with a cold brew and soak up some of the most authentic barbecue Texas has to offer.

Where to Sweat

Karmany Yoga
5014 McKinney Ave., (214) 564-7772
With donation-based and Ashtanga classes, what more could you ask for? Classes are often kept between 88 and 90 degrees, so while it won't be as intense as "hot" yoga, your muscles will stay warm and happy. Karmany is a local favorite; Dallas natives say they love the welcoming vibe of this studio.

Uptown Yoga
2636 Thomas Ave., (214) 965-9642
Uptown Yoga offers a plethora of classes, all within the atmosphere of a studio percolating with good vibes. Most classes are of the Vinyasa variety, though there are occasional core or stretch-focused classes.

Epic Way to Spend a Saturday

Reunion Tower GeO-Deck
300 Reunion Blvd. East, (214) 712-7040
From 470 feet up you’ll experience breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views, high-definition zoom cameras, interactive touch screens, telescopes, photo ops, and an indoor/outdoor observation deck that lets you see for miles in any direction. Day or night, make the iconic Reunion Tower your first stop to explore fun things to see and do in Dallas.

Where to Shop

Dallas Farmers Market
1010 S Pearl Expy., (214) 664-9110
This beloved indoor market is filled with bite-sized versions of beloved restaurants, along with local vendors and delicious produce. It's a great option if you want to try multiple things in one setting. Purchase items like fresh goat cheese, veggies, gluten-free cupcakes, soothing soaps, and homemade jewelry all while supporting the local community.

Favorite Outdoor Hang

Klyde Warren Park
2012 Woodall Rodgers Fwy., (214) 716-4500
Located on top of a highway, this park gives you a stellar view of the city. Throughout the week you'll find a cornucopia of food trucks, making this an ideal spot for lunch. Other events include yoga classes, storytelling, and live music. With something unique going on every day, it makes every trip to Klyde Warren Park a brand-new experience.
