I am officially posting about my travels to Dallas! We made sooooo many stops along the way and I figured I would share all the places we stopped in. We prepped beforehand by making lists of places to eat and things to see. We only had a day in every stop so we, of course, didn’t get to do EVERYTHING on the list but I wanted to share the list nonetheless. We had to skip some cool things due to our time constraints! Anyways, I hope this series of posts helps someone find fun things to do in these different cities🧡

So the first thing we did in Oklahoma City was stop by the Bricktown Canals. The weather was crazy the night before so we were nervous they would cancel our tickets and that was not about to happen because we were on a tight schedule. Luckily, it was just a little gloomy. We went early so all the parking options were available. We had a U-haul attached so we had to find a lot. Cheapest we found was for $10 all day, which ain’t bad if you’re gonna stop at other places in the area. It was a cute little area with a baseball field, restaurants and shops. We parked to the left of the movie theatre. I thought I would mention the parking attendant left once the weather got bad, so parking is free when it’s not busy and raining?🤷🏻♀️
The canal itself is really cute. It was around $10 per person for a 30-minute tour. At the end of our tour, it started raining and we got to the car just before the crazy rain.
Myriad Botanical Gardens
Once we got here we definitely needed umbrellas to get in. We found long meter parking on the street beside the gardens. There was really no one outside. I’m not sure if the weather just kept everyone inside or what but we had exploring to do. Luckily the garden was indoors.
This is the side of the crystal bridge.
So, it was time to leave and the rain picked up.. heavily. We had one umbrella and three people. The wind was whipping the rain so even an umbrella barely helped. Pretty much everyone decided to wait in the lobby. Suddenly, a maintenance man rolled up on a golf cart wearing a trash bag. We were like HI HELP! The receptionist and this man were super sweet and helped us build some cover. We had to get to the car ASAP and it was pretty far to run. SO this created the look. I got the umbrella 😈
Tuckers Onion Burgers
I am so sorry this is the ONLY picture I got of our food. We ate it so fast haha. Honestly, it was good but I don’t think it was my favorite. I will say their cups and the way you order is amazing. The brand itself is really killing it. Also, the homemade lemonade was really good!
This was a super cute place to hang out and socialize. Obviously, like I have been saying, the weather just was not ideal for either of those things but that also meant we had the whole place to ourselves. It was really nice though. Places to eat, hang out, take pictures, play games or relax.
