Horseback riding isn’t just fun, it’s actually an excellent cardiovascular workout, too! Whether it’s a special occasion or just a day out with your besties, Stockyards Stables in the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards district offers half- and full-hour rides along the beautiful Trinity River Trail. For $30 to $50 per person, you and your friends can mosey along the amazing urban waterfront. If you don’t ride (though, what Texas gal doesn’t?), you can also take a 30-minute carriage ride. Reservations are required, so check out the website before you go. After your ride, you and your friends can even do a little shopping in the Stockyards’ many local stores.

Take in 18 holes and beautiful scenery at The Golf Club at Fossil Creek. Enjoy the beautiful Texas weather on a day out with your friends or enter a tournament and take home the prize. Every Friday is Pro-V1 Friday, when $79 pays your green fee, cart rental, range balls and a dozen Titleist Pro-V1 balls, though we recommend skipping the cart for a little extra exercise. You can even book your tee time in advance right from your computer! Short on time? No problem, a small bucket of balls to smack across the driving range is only $5, an inexpensive and stress-relieving activity for a busy day.
Year ‘round, Shakespeare Dallas celebrates the brilliant works of The Bard himself, William Shakespeare. Since 1971, Shakespeare Dallas has entertained approximately 50,000 Dallasites every summer and fall during its annual Shakespeare in the Park series. Their outdoor amphitheater is the perfect place to enjoy a riveting performance of MacBeth or treat the kids or your friends to the entertaining antics that might ensue on a midsummer night. You can bring your own food to the performance or check out the concession stand when you get there. You can also bring your own wine or beer. Or, if the audience just isn’t the place for a character like you, you can also audition!
