You might not be headed to a resort in Cabo, but that doesn't mean that you can't have the vacation experience right here in Dallas! Grab some friends and split the cost of a room at the Ritz Carlton, the Four Seasons (pictured above), or whichever hotel your budget allows. Then get dressed up and head to Uptown to try out a new brunch spot, do some shopping at Highland Park Village, enjoy the nightlife in Deep Ellum, and before you know it, your friends abroad will be jealous of your Instagram pics.

5. Have a Picnic

Although the current weather is not ideal for picnics, it's likely to warm up by the start of Spring Break, so why not take advantage? Klyde Warren Park and Watters Creek (pictured above) are both excellent picnic spots in DFW.

6. Try Something New

Whether you've been wanting to try SoulCycle, see if you can escape the Panic Room, or have close up encounters with animals at the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center (pictured above), Spring Break is the perfect opportunity to go for it!

7. Take a Road Trip

Just because you're staying in Dallas doesn't mean you have to limit yourself to the immediate Dallas area. San Antonio, South Padre Island, and New Braunfels are all popular destinations that are only a few hours away from DFW. Get in your car, and go explore Texas!
