Dallas is a comfortable city. Moderate temperatures and regular sunshine attracts year-round visitors, along with major happenings such as football games, the Dallas International Film Festival, business conferences and special events like last year’s WrestleMania at AT&T Stadium – which drew the largest crowd in WWE history. There’s plenty to do outdoors, from hiking the Cedar River Nature Preserve to watching Zola the Gorilla dance in a play pool at the Dallas Zoo.
Not every day in Dallas is perfect, though. Summers can get muggy and there’s a 25% chance of rain for about half the year. On imperfect weather days, guests at Magnolia Dallas Park Cities tend to stay close to our boutique hotel. The Angelika Theater offers movies just two blocks away, while our in-house restaurant, Park Cities Grill, dishes up comforting foods like rigatoni and chicken tortilla soup.
If you do decide to adventure away from Magnolia, Dallas boasts plenty of indoor entertainment options perfect for a rainy day. Take your rental car, or see if the DART Light Rail stops near your destination. Our fun flowchart will help you choose an indoor activity to satisfy every member of your family or group. Enjoy your day at the aquarium or fun park, then head back to Magnolia for dinner and relaxation in your comfortable room.
