Where did the summer go? It seems like just yesterday we were planning our first cookout and making plans to go to the beach. And while we do love fall—hello scarves and pumpkin-flavored everything—we’re not quite ready to let go of summer. Here are a few ideas for making the most of the last few weeks.
Hit the Dallas Farmers Market. Yes, it’s open all year, but now is the time to experience the flavor of the very freshest summer produce while getting to know the farmers who make it all happen. Pick out some heirloom tomatoes, a ripe, juicy melon and an especially gorgeous bouquet of fresh-cut flowers.
Take the family to Klyde Warren Park. Seriously, there is so much to do. Play a game
of chess, check out what’s going on in the children’s park, romp with your pet in the dog park, make plans for Music Thursdays and grab a bite at the park’s gastropub, Savor.
There’s so much beauty to take in at the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens. Kids will go crazy (in a good way) at the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden, or plan to catch up with your bestie over a swanky afternoon tea. Admission is only a buck during the month of August, so now is a great time to go.
With more than 600 miles of coastline, Texas’ Gulf Coast is a prime spot for beachgoers. Grab some light reading, pack your towel, slather on your sunscreen and go!
If you’ve got a free weekend, head to the Texas Hill Country for a rustic mini-break. The town of Bandera bills itself as the cowboy capital of the world, and it’s easy to join in the fun. Rent a cabin, schedule a trail ride, go to a rodeo and end the day at a honky-tonk.
And of course, you’ll want to plan one last summer soirée with fantastic foods and delicious drinks. Whether you’re planning to show off your culinary prowess or delight in the skills of a creative caterer, Artizone has got you covered.
