Winter isn’t just about stress-eating your way through the holidays; there are plenty of other things to do, too, many of which are actually fun. This winter in Dallas, you'll get multiple chances to dance through the night, watch motorcycles soar through the air at a Supercross race, get your sip on at a whiskey tasting, and rap along with Chance the Rapper. See, we told you! Here’s everything you need to do in Dallas this winter.
Downtown Plano Arts District
Explore art while also enjoying some wine at the Downtown Plano Art & Wine Walk. Grab your glass, tasting card and wine guide and take a stroll through the neighborhood; there are about 20 wine stops every month, so be sure to pace yourself. There will also be live music and several shops to check out. This month’s theme is “Winter Onesie-land.”
Cost: Tickets are $15 online or $20 at the door.
Dallas Farmers Market
Whether you’re Christmas shopping for your family or yourself, you’ll find some neat items to greedily snatch up at the Boho Market. The pop-up will feature more than 50 local artisans, farmers, ranchers, makers, and small businesses. There will also be live music, food and drinks.
Cost: Admission is free.
Starts & ends at Dallas City Hall Plaza
If you live south of Lovers Lane, the Dallas Marathon will be hard to miss -- more than 26 miles of roadways are shut down for it. Come out and cheer on the runners as they make their way through the city. Show your support in your neighborhood or look for a cheering party along the course.
Cost: $179-499 for marathon participants; free to watch.
Get your brunch on at the arboretum as the gardens host this holiday brunch featuring chicken and waffles, breakfast tacos, hash browns, a coffee bar, mimosas and Christmas cookies. Afterwards, walk off those calories with a nice stroll around the arboretum.
Cost: Brunch and admission is $60 for non-members.
