See & Do in Dallas

Travel , Just For Fun

The chance to work with our Dallas clients is always a treat. From Plano to Rockwall to downtown, Buckley coaches have found lots of great things to do when we’re not busy teaching great groups.

The first question after a long day is “where are we eating dinner?” Here are a few spots we’ve discovered:

Mexican Sugar and Whiskey Cake, Plano

We liked both—then learned they’re owned by the same company.

Cafe Momentum, where kids at risk get a fresh start.

Café Momentum, Downtown

Smoked fried chicken, need we say more? Actually, yes—best part is that this lovely place is doing good work for the community, giving at-risk kids the chance to build job skills.

Weekend in The Joule Hotel, downtown Dallas.

Weekend, Downtown

This coffee shop in The Joule Hotel has good coffee, great baked goods, and a beautiful space for hanging out or catching up on work.

Bird Bakery in Highland Park Village

Bird Bakery, Highland Park Village

Good sandwiches, great iced tea (yes, we care about that) and gorgeous baked goods.

Rusk Street, Rockwall

We enjoy staying by the lake and for dinner, we like going to the center of this cute town where we’ve wandered into places like Zanata and The Fatted Calf.

We always stop in for chicken fingers at Raising Cane's

Raising Cane’s, Everywhere

Yes, we love our Cane’s chicken fingers (and the iced tea, too).


When we have a few extra hours, we like to explore. So far, we’ve found time to visit:

The Sixth Floor Museum

About the life and assassination of John F. Kennedy, it’s fascinating, like walking through a documentary.

Sculpture at the Nasher, downtown Dallas arts district

Nasher Sculpture Center

In the downtown arts district, with exhibits indoors and out. We also like the nearby Klyde Warren Park, more impressive because it’s built over a freeway.

Lots to choose from at the Dallas Farmers Market, on the edge of downtown

Dallas Farmers’ Market

On the weekend, local farmers bring their stuff to the shed. Every day, you’ll find food stalls, coffee, and more in the market building or you can get an outside table at the laid back, super-charming restaurant Mudhen.

Highland Park Village

A pretty place to wander—call it shopping or you can call it a visit to a historic landmark, since it was the first self-contained shopping center in America.
