As part of our Farewell Tour of Texas, as I like to call it, we decided to spend some time up in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area. Houston didn’t work out for us for many reasons (more on that later) so we wanted to see what else Texas had to offer. We decided to call this trip “Accidental Snowbirds Do Dallas” Clever huh? 

Treetops RV Resort

We stayed at Treetops RV Resort, part of the Sun RV Resorts chain. It was in Arlington, smack dab in the middle of Dallas and Fort Worth, a nice clean park with friendly staff. It was close to everything we needed and would definitely stay there again.

Because of snow in the weather report, we chose to stay an extra day just to play it safe. Nobody wants to haul an RV in the snow if they don’t have to! As we were packing up the next morning, in freezing but snowless temperatures, the batteries on the truck had died! So, we bundled up and headed to the nearest auto parts store. Of course, they didn’t have the batteries we needed in stock, so we stayed another day!

 

Burger Battle

In Texas, Whataburger is king and Texans will fight you about it.

My first Whataburger experience.

Elsewhere in the country, fans of In-N-Out Burger are passionate that their burgers are the best in the country.

A pretty tasty lunch.

We did our own taste test and enjoyed both Whataburger and In-N-Out in the same week and we couldn’t agree on which was the best! 

Personally, I don’t think either of them holds a candle to Dick’s in Seattle.

The Grave of Clyde Barrow

It’s no secret that Kate loves random roadside attractions and utilizes the Roadside America app in every city we are in. While in Dallas, we visited the grave of Clyde Barrow, half of the infamous duo Bonnie and Clyde.

Giant Dr. Pepper Cans

If you happen to be driving on Spur 482, you can see the giant Dr. Pepper cans at the bottling plant

That’s a whole lot of pop!

Dealey Plaza

Lance is the king of conspiracy theories, or “conspiracy truths” as he likes to call them. So I surprised him with a stop at Dealey Plaza, the setting of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. We didn’t pay to go into the Sixth Floor Museum but we did take our own walking tour of the area and inspected the grassy knoll. We always have stimulating conversations, just one of the many reasons I married him, and this one was particularly interesting, given his skill set.

 

As our “Accidental Snowbirds Do Dallas” trip concludes.  We will have more stories from our Farewell Tour of Texas (coming soon):

  • Austin
  • Fort Worth
