If you are a hunter, id add South Padre to the list as well for the special white wing seasons!

Austin, San Antonio, Waco if you're into Magnolia. Broken Bow in Oklahoma is beautiful and has cabins for rent, just a few hours away. You can gamble in Shreveport or at Choctaw if that's your thing. Bigger trips from Dallas are Big Bend, which is amazing, and Palo Duro Canyon in the Panhandle, also gorgeous. Lots of lakes with Airbnb's or cabins for rent between OK and Austin/Hill Country. Try luckenbach for a fun day trip from Austin. And there's a ton to do in DFW. I've been doing staycation weekends in different areas - downtown, Sundance Square, Southlake. Grapevine is cool too. Or the lake at Rockwall.

Depends what you are into. Texas has campgrounds.

Dallas is decently close to San Antonio, Austin, & Houston.

Fredericksburg for the wineries if you’re a wine drinker. Beautiful hill country.

My family loves the Dallas Arboretum.

I personally am a history geek so I love the Alamo and the other historic sites

Fossil rim

And Marfa

Had an argument with a partner last night.

He wanted me to prepare a presentation he was going to hold on recent developments in the law within our field.

I asked him whether I was going to make the presentation that he was going to hold by himself and in his own name only, and he said yes.

I then said that either we hold it together and I get to speak just a little or at least stand there, or he does it himself.

So fed up with satisfying narcissists.
