    #3 Downtown

    No trip to the "Big D" is complete without exploring the heart of the city. Marveling up at the sleek skyscrapers looming over lush urban oases as you amble along the streets makes for an entertaining walk all by itself. Klyde Warren Park is a hub of activity, hosting all manner of events from live concerts to fitness classes. The highlight is, of course, the on-site dog park! (And also the food trucks.) The colorful murals, children's play area, and dog park at Main Street Garden make it a "furrific" outing for the whole family. Hound-dog history buffs will have a blast at Dallas Heritage Village, a 20-acre living history museum. Though doggos aren't allowed inside the preserved Victorian buildings, they're welcome to wander the grounds with you on-leash. This just scratches the surface of dog-friendly adventures on offer in Downtown. If you're planning to visit the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza to learn about JFK's legacy and assassination, book a dog walker in Dallas  only service dogs are allowed inside.
