There’s nothing better than being a tourist in your own town.
It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the mundane of our every day lives. We get stuck in routines and forget to admire the world we live in.
One of the things I will forever be grateful for is the company I work for. Not only did they give me my first “big girl job” to help kickstart my career, they gave me the opportunity to move to Dallas and take in a new city, culture, and lifestyle.
So to kick off the month of May, this weekend, Lauren and I decided to take in all that Dallas has to offer.
Honestly, I couldn’t tell you the last time I had this much fun. I felt like I was 10 years old again and I had been transported into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.
Candytopia is a pop-up interactive art museum where you can walk through a lollipop forest, take a ride in a taxi cab made out of yellow jelly beans, and dive into a pit of jet-puffed marshmallows.
It’s currently only open in Atlanta and Dallas, but if you ever have the chance to check it out, DO IT!
I could very easily be talked into going again if anyone needs a friend 😉
The next stop on our tour was an exploration of Downtown Dallas. We started in Uptown, the fancy and trendy part of Dallas. The best way to explore the city? On vintage trolley streetcars and flying by on scooters.
We ended up at the Main Street Garden Park where yet another temporary, interactive art exhibit lives, IMPULSE.
IMPULSE is a collection of seesaws throughout the park of various sizes. Each seesaw lights up as they move and they play different musical notes creating a surreal audio and visual experience in the heart of the city.
Plus, the views of the iconic Statler hotel served a perfect backdrop.
All in all, I couldn’t have asked for a better Saturday with better friends in a city like ours.
