Best free things to do in Dallas?

I'm going to be in Dallas next month and will be on a pretty tight budget. I'm looking for the best free and inexpensive things to check out! I love the outdoors, art, museums, you name it. Thanks!

You have to visit Klyde Warren Park where there's always something fun (and free!) happening, like yoga classes, book signings, movies, and concerts. Food trucks line the park every Saturday offering a variety of affordable fare.  

The park connects Uptown and Downtown and borders the The Dallas Arts District. Take a break from the heat and visit the The Crow Collection of Asian Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center or the Dallas Museum of Art which is free every 3rd Friday from 6pm to midnight.

Hi! I would highly recommend checking out the Dallas Museum of Art and the The Crow Collection of Asian Art. Both museums are free and is definitely worth a visit if you have never been. After visiting the museums you can walk to Klyde Warren Park. There are a lot of really great and budget friendly food trucks and sometime there are free concerts in the park.

Arbor Hills Nature Preserve is a great place to view nature and beautiful scenery. It's located in Plano which is about 25-30 mins outside of Dallas.

You will definitely have to check out Klyde Warren Park.  Some of my other suggestions would be:

John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza First Tuesdays Dallas Museum of Art Trinity River Audubon Center White Rock Lake You can check out some nice stained glass at Thanks-Giving Square If you want to see some pretty nice sculptures and graffiti art, Deep Ellum is a place to see. You can also tour the city via the McKinney Avenue Transit Authority Those are all some of free suggestions, but Perot Museum of Nature and Science is a pretty cool place, and I mean you can't come to Dallas and not check out the the home of the Dallas Cowboys Cowboys Stadium!!!  I hope this helps and enjoy your time in Dallas :-)

Go downtown to the Arts District Arts District and hang out at Klyde Warren Park! They have lots of cool events going on day & night (check website) and there are plenty of food trucks to eat an inexpensive lunch/dinner. Then you can walk right across the street to the Dallas Museum of Art which has FREE admission! and another great museum next door is the The Crow Collection of Asian Art (also free!) You can walk all around that area of downtown which has some very interesting buildings & outdoor spaces (Winspear Opera Housedallas symphony hallAT&T Performing Arts Center), and even continue farther into downtown to see Main street and the famous Neiman Marcus flagship store. There is a new free bus system that will take you around there and other Dallas sites - its called the "D link" and its specifically designed around the most fun & interesting places in downtown/uptown area!
