Dallas has plenty of fun activities for everyone.

If you are considering moving to the greater Dallas area, you may want a peak into the many things you can get yourself into while traveling around the city. As one of the largest cities in the South, it has plenty to offer, and you may be surprised with all of the options that you find. Once you grab your moving boxes and contact your moving company to set up an appointment, you could benefit from creating a list of things to do first once you arrive.

Dallas trolley tour
If you are looking for a fun way to view the city, it may not be a bad idea to take one of the trolleys in the Uptown area. According to ILiveInDallas.com, the M-Line offers year-round service without any fees. This way, you can check out this neighborhood, which has plenty to offer. While it may not cost any money, there is an ability to give donations on the ride.

Shopping areas
Dallas, like many major cities, has a vibrant number of shopping options. This can be great whether you are seeing the city with family or friends. According to Four Seasons Magazine, Highland Park Village may be where you want to start your shopping experience. This is because the area is known for many top shopping outlets, such as Escada and Trina Turk. Of course, there are plenty of other major shopping areas in the city. One that you may want to prioritize is NorthPark Center, which is a major shopping mall located in the city. There you can take advantage of such stores as Nordstrom and Barneys New York.

Katie Trail Biking
For those who like living in the city, but still want to enjoy the great outdoors, there is another option in the Dallas area. The Katie Trail is a bike route that goes through multiple parks in the city, according to ILiveInDallas.com. This spans more than 3 miles, and it doesn't cost anything to use. This area can bring you through some of the nicest parks, as well as the main attractions in the city. If you prefer to walk around instead of getting out your bike, it is also a possibility.

Dallas Arboretum picnic area
Another choice that could be great for those who love being outside is checking out the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. Not only can you see the many different types of flora in the area, but there is also an ability to picnic here, according to Four Seasons Magazine. This location can be fun, as after you finish with your picnic, it is possible to examine the more than 65 acres of gardens at the arboretum. From here, you can also visit White Rock Lake, which may be a fun end to your day.

Skyline views of the city
Just like many big cities, Dallas has a number of skyscrapers that make its skyline so notable. For those who want to get a good view of these areas, there are a few options available to you. One of these is through Reunion Tower, according to ILiveInDallas.com. The tower, which looks like a large ball, allows patrons to head up to the top without a charge, just to see the view around the city. Another aspect of this view that can be even better is that there is a restaurant at the top, so you can see the view while you dine with family or just a few friends.
