10 DFW Staycations Worthy of Staying in Town
The Harwood District allows you to escape to multiple countries and experience foreign cuisine — and all sans your passport. You can start the morning off sipping lattés at the oh-so-chic Magnolias Sous Le Pont for breakfast.
Your faux-French escape can trickle over to lunch at Marie Gabrielle. After lunch, venture over to the Marie Gabrielle Gardens for a game of giant chess. To punctuate your European jaunt in your backyard, scurry over to Dolce Riviera for a decadent Italian feast. Beautiful greenery engulfs the patio, and the cocktails are more than Instagram-worthy.
Cap the night off with the ultimate cocktail at Happiest Hour and experience a good ol’ traditional Texas bar. Home sweet home. Texas-inspired cocktails flow generously through the menu.
A mere stone’s throw away from Harwood is the W Hotel in Victory Park if you’re looking for a modish place to stay. The pool deck is all the rage in the summer. And did we mention the Hard Rock Cafe is just around the corner? What vacation is complete without snagging a Hardrock Cafe shirt as a souvenir?
