Outdoor fun/adventure near Dallas?

Jump to last reply

I just posted a note looking for a nice, celebration dinner spot in Dallas and since this question is a bit different, I decided to just give it its own space in a separate topic.

In any case, my wife and I will be traveling to Dallas next month when she takes her medical boards exams. we are both in our early 30's with no kids. This means there will be a few days when I am "on my own" while she studies, preps, and takes the exam and then a few days we can enjoy Dallas together after she is done.

I am looking for things to do in the Dallas area. Mostly, I would love to find some outdoor adventure-type activities to take in. We both enjoy these activities... usually more mild ones for both of us while I will go more extreme solo. As an example, she would do a 2 hour horseback trail ride while I will go for the 8 hour.

Anyway, my interests are varied. I love horseback riding and enjoy water activities like kayaking, fishing, and so forth. I also like hiking or exploring natural parks and other areas. We've done jeep tours and the such before, too, and enjoyed them. I would love to be outdoor and active while in Dallas so I welcome and appreciate any and all suggestions!

If there are other "must-see" places or activities you recommend, too, please feel free to share those too. I had hoped to see a rodeo of some kind down there or get my "cowboy fix" in somehow but it doesn't look like one is going on during our stay.

Thanks, in advance, for your helpful tips and recommendations...
